New Record breaking USD$414,119 jackpot won at The Sands of Caribbean® Online Casino
St. John’s, Antigua – On September 3, 2001 an online casino player won more than USD$414,119 playing the Rags to Riches slot game at The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino (www.thesands.com), announced Gwen Salmon, Director of Finance at CCMH, Ltd. “We are always excited to see one of our patrons win big and we are proud of the fact that we continually award the largest winnings in the online casino industry.

“Unbelievable, I couldn’t and still don’t believe it!” said the winner whose online moniker is “BOBO”. “I was playing the Rags to Riches game and all three of the reels stopped on the “Rags to Riches” symbols and the bonus wheel started to spin,” explained BOBO. “I was just hoping for the wheel to stop at $200, but it stopped at JACKPOT!!! I woke up my wife and we sat for almost 12 hours as the machine counted off at $600 per minute. After the win, The Sands of Caribbean® Online Casino customer service department couldn’t have been happier for me or treated me nicer. People really do win on Internet casinos. Thank you 414,000 times!” exclaimed BOBO.
