|Internet gamblers get a shot of confidence as The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino (www.thesands.com) proves that big online winners really do get paid.|
Perhaps more than any other industry, online gambling had drawn criticism from a wide range of skeptics who questioned an Internet casino’s ability to pay out large jackpot prizes. With most online jackpots only paying out a few thousand dollars, even traditional casino operators sometimes felt that online operators had yet to pass the true test of any casino: their ability to pay big winners.
These doubts have now been quashed because of 'BOBO', the recent winner of the Internet's largest casino jackpot to date. BOBO won $414,119 playing the Rags to Riches progressive slot machine at The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino (www.thesands.com). Although BOBO was never unsure about www.thesands.com, when interviewed he immediately pointed out “If I won somewhere else I would have been sceptical, (but since) I’ve been playing at The Sands of the Caribbean® for four or five years they’ve always had my trust, and that’s what’s most important.” BOBO also added confidently “When I won, I knew right away that it was real”.
Now that The Sands of the Caribbean® has proven itself to the skeptics and championed the online casino industry’s credibility, the question remains as to whether other online casinos will be as capable at paying super-jackpots?
Online gaming expert, Gabriel Black, seems to think that the industry as a whole will stand the test, and even feels that online efficiencies will make big online payouts easier than big land-based payouts. 'Paying out $414,119 is the same as paying out $1 for an online casino. The money can just as easily be sent by check, or by wire transfer. While traditional casinos need to worry about keeping $400,000 in cash lying in the back room, online casinos let that money sit in a bank until its won.'
So what’s the first thing you do when you win $414,119? “I woke up my wife and said ‘I think I just won something big’. Then the Customer Care Manager from The Sands of the Caribbean® called me and said that I had won the $414,119”. BOBO explains, “I called them to ask how to get my money and they said ‘Its there, just go push the button to withdraw it’ so I said OK”.
And if that doesn’t prove The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino is as capable of paying big winners as the land-based casinos, I don’t know what will.
