Online Poker Player Trumps Record at InterCasino While Slot Champ Steals the Show

Online poker player “Shawn” has been added to the growing list of mega-jackpot winners at ( after taking home $79,162 this weekend. Playing the “Super Jackpot” video poker game, Shawn’s win came from a simple 5-coin bet and the coveted royal flush. Shawn’s poker prowess made him the game’s largest-ever progressive poker player, beating “Palor’s” Oct 5, 2001 record by almost $50,000.

Luckily for player “Jess”, Shawn’s time in the sun was short lived. Within 24 hours of Shawn’s jackpot, his victory was trumped by more than $70,000 when Jess’ $149,986 win on the wildly popular “Rags To Riches” progressive made Jess the new king of the hill.

Although the odds of two progressive wins, on two separate machines, during the same weekend seems a staggering task even for the largest Las Vegas casinos; there is a mathematical explanation behind the good fortune at InterCasino. According to Steve Badger, author of “The Winners Guide to Online Poker”, the more popular the casino, the better the chances of progressive wins. “The chances of winning reflect how popular the casino is. It all depends on the amount of hands played.”

That’s how a couple of regular guys like Shawn and Jess can spend virtually nothing to win thousands by putting their finger of the click button. InterCasino’s jackpots simply grow and grow because they are among the biggest on the internet.

“I’m not at all surprised that Shawn and Jess did so well over the weekend. Super Jackpot has always been a great payer, and the rules are easy enough for any card player to understand. Rags to Riches is one of our most popular games and Jess follows in the footsteps of winners who have won millions of dollars. I think we’ll be seeing a lot of records broken in the next few months. You can quote me on that!” boasts InterCasino manager Ryan Hartley.

At this rate, it looks like InterCasino may be paying out more than $1 million dollars in progressive jackpots this quarter. With $229,148 won last weekend, and not forgetting the $400,000 in combined winnings at the beginning of this month, the mega-jackpot win for April alone has already topped $629,148 at InterCasino.
