|Last weekend, a Canadian woman became the second online slots player to hit Slotland.com's progressive jackpot in just a few weeks. Her September 23rd jackpot of $146,761 (€105,840) follows a $165, 318 (€119,610) win by a regular player known as “Newman32” in July.|
“I usually play the Booster slot because I like the way you can boost your bets. But a friend won a few dollars playing the slot machine called Magic so I decided to give it a try last Sunday,” said this week’s winner. “That machine sure lived up to its name that night, eh?”
In a recent player survey, 80 percent of respondents said the reason they liked slot machines over other online casino games is the jackpots.
“I know a lot of people think slots players just like slots because they’re easy,” said John Lancelet of Slotland.com. “But the chance to win hundreds of thousands on a very minimal bet is a big part of it!”
Slotland’s jackpot policy means that it is now reset to $50,000, following successive big wins within weeks of each other ($163,114 in March and the all time high jackpot of $179,166 in May) prompted the company to double up the starting amount.
The progressive can be played on any of the fourteen unique slot machines and video poker games on the Slotland.com web site. Six games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. The mobile games are tied into the same progressive jackpot, so the next big winner could be at their computer or anywhere they take their mobile phone.
