|After its progressive jackpot was hit for an all-time high of $179,166, Slotland.com has increased the jackpot seed for its frequently hit progressives from $25,000 to $50,000.|
The decision comes after Slotland player TOPNOTCHED struck gold on the Golden 8 slot machine, winning $179,166, surpassing the site’s previous record of $163,114.
“Doubling the starting amount means that jackpots will build higher in a shorter period of time,” said Hannah Morante of Slotland.com. “Even when jackpots occur within weeks of each other, all winners will be guaranteed a minimum win of $50,000 -- double the previous jackpot starting value.”
“We noticed that no one complained last time we increased the jackpot seed,” mused Morante, “Now we have so many players all over the world that we’re able to raise it again.”
Slotland.com had three jackpot winners this time last year and ended up with seven more by year-end. While the increased starting value won’t necessarily mean more winners, the jackpots will most certainly be bigger.
The progressive can be played on any of the nine unique slot machines and video poker games on the Slotland.com website. All five games that are also available on mobile phones and PDAs are also tied into the same progressive jackpot, so the next big winner could be at their computer or anywhere they take their mobile phone.
