Poker and Slot Progressives

Italian Player Take’s Slot over Poker Jackpots Anyday!

Online gamblers are always looking for the best value for their gambling dollar. That axiom is especially true when that dollar is the investment to change a normal bet to a progressive that could win a player more then $100,000.

Since progressive jackpots came online, players have been divided into two camps regarding which progressive games, poker or slots, offered the best odds for their qualifying bet. On the slot machine, betting 3 coins rather than 1 or 2 will qualify you for a chance at the big money; while at the poker table, you’ll stake an extra $1 on top of your original ante for a shot at that brass ring.

While the debate between the one armed bandit and the poker felt goes on unresolved, two players from InterCasino who won six-figure amounts within days of each other, each think they’ve found the answer to this heated debate.

InterCasino player Bongo, who runs a pizza delivery business in Italy, won $173,001.24 playing Rags to Riches slots from his home. That makes him one of Italy’s largest online progressive jackpot winners. His reaction is good fortune: “I still can't believe that I really won! When the wheel stopped on the jackpot I thought at first it was a computer error, but realised when Ryan then congratulated me, that it must be true!”

Just days earlier, Frankk was playing at InterCasino’s Spice Island Poker when he conjured the most illusive and highest paying card combination in the game. His royal flush won him a jackpot worth $157,406.42, 15,594.82 less than the Italian slots wizard. His reaction, nearly the same as Bongo’s: “I was shocked. The first person I told was my wife, and she didn’t believe me. Then I called my kids, and they didn’t believe it either! I was just so excited to hit a Royal Flush, I almost couldn’t believe it myself.”

The two players won a combined total of $330,407.66. “Its great to know that we have players from all over the world winning a variety of our games. I couldn’t say for sure whether Poker or Slots are more lucky, but I think I know two guys that have recently developed strong opinions on the subject.” Says smiling InterCasino manager Ryan Hartley.
