|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 slot Treasure Box.
The jackpot winner, who recently won her fight with colon cancer and is now undergoing chemotherapy for a spot on her liver, said, 'Last week, I was home on one of my breaks from chemo, 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 dwindling fast when she lined up three wild symbols and won the $113,418 jackpot.
Hannah Morante of Slotland.com, said, 'I know a lot of our players are shut-ins, either ill themselves or caring for a loved one. 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.'
