|One video poker player in Canada woke up nearly $200,000 richer this morning after hitting the progressive jackpot at Slotland.com. Slotland’s jackpot is won, on average, every six or eight weeks. With the last win of $100,000 being won a little while back, many saw the windfall as overdue.|
“It’s hard to resist when the jackpot gets to big numbers like that,” said Martin Smith. “Lots of players play a little more when they feel like there’s going to be a big jackpot winner any second. They want it to be them! So we’d been very busy in the days before the win.”
“I usually stick with video poker,” said the player known as TEXASTEASER who’s been a regular at Slotland.com for five years. “I don’t know what made me think I should take a spin or two on the slots that day instead, but I’m sure glad I did!”
The lucky Canadian won the biggest Slotland progressive jackpot ever: $195,083 playing Treasure Box. The game has proved to be one of the most popular slots on the site, with JAMKAT2 winning a $113,418 progressive jackpot last year. Prior to this springtime windfall, the biggest jackpot ever won at Slotland was $179,166 won by TOPNOTCHED playing the Golden 8 slot machine last May.
The progressive can be played on any of the slot machines and video poker games on the Slotland.com web site. Most of the games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs where they are tied into the same progressive jackpot. The next big winner could be at their computer or anywhere they take their mobile phone. The last player to win a large jackpot playing on their phone was OLYMPIAGOLD who won $163K playing the mobile version of Lucky Stars in early 2006.
Re-set at $50,000 after each win, Slotland.com’s progressive jackpot is already back up to over $70,000 (€45,000). So what are you waiting for? Get over there, and be lucky!
