|November 21, 2006 (London, UK) – Slotland.com’s eighth major jackpot win of the year goes to a cancer survivor who’s glad she took a break from work to spin the slots. JAMKAT2 won $113,418 (€89,067) playing the progressive on everyone’s favourite slot, Treasure Box.|
On average, Slotland’s progressive jackpot is hit for over $100,000 every six weeks or so. Their mobile games are tied into the same jackpots so the next big win could happen at home, work or anywhere players take their mobile phones.
“Last week, I was home on one of my breaks from chemo,” said the jackpot winner who recently won her fight with colon cancer and is now undergoing chemotherapy for a spot on her liver. “I was actually supposed to be finishing a project for a freelance client of mine, but chemo really takes it out of you. I just really needed a break.”
The lucky player had won a 45% deposit bonus from the previous month’s Slotland.com Newsletter and so deposited $200, a little more than usual. After an afternoon of play, her $290 was disappearing and her work project was not getting done. But she felt lucky and wasn’t in the mood to stop. Next thing she knew, she’d lined up three wild symbols and won the $113,418 jackpot.
“Everything became somewhat of a blur for me after that,” explained the winner. “I didn’t want to spin – I just wanted to feast my eyes on that winning screen!”
“I called my two kids and told them. I probably should also have mentioned that they shouldn't blab it around too much, but it's too late now! My youngest son is in college, and he told the boys on his track team, and apparently, it is already all over the campus. My other son who's married and has three children, told his wife, who promptly called her mother and told her. So much for secrets! “
“I feel like this win is a sign of good things to come for me, including improved health!”
“I know a lot of our players are shut-ins, either ill themselves or caring for a loved one,” said Hannah Morante of Slotland.com. “It’s a good feeling to know we can provide exciting entertainment for people that can really use a little more fun in their lives.”
