|September 8, 2004 - Online Casino, InterCasino.com called to congratulate its latest progressive slot machine winner, only to find out that gambling is a family affair in his house. 54-year-old player “William H.” was playing online slot machine ‘Rags to Riches’ with his wife for an evening’s entertainment before he decided to turn in for the night. Luckily, his wife had a few pulls on the one-armed bandit left in her when she told William that she’d be joining him in a few minutes. |
Just as William had gotten into bed, the calm of the evening was pierced by his wife’s shouting near the computer. Knowing that she was online, playing at InterCasino.com, William quickly sprung from bed in anticipation of a big payout. But William had no idea that his wife had just brought home the bacon – all $281.865 of it!
“My wife was beside herself, and I tried to stay pretty cool, but I just couldn’t believe it,” said William. “We have been playing at InterCasino.com for about three years and we’ve won big before, but this is the biggest.”
The lucky couple enjoys playing InterCasino.com’s slot machines, Let it Ride, and Caribbean Stud together. “Last year we won about $50,000 playing poker, we’ve hit royal flushes four or five times at InterCasino.com, so we like to stick to poker, but when the jackpot on Rags to Riches reaches over $180,000, we know it’s due to bust. That’s what put us on Rags to Riches the other night. I figure that the machine is due, and if there are only a few hundred people playing it at any one time, my chances are pretty good.”
William travels with his job, and often plays from his hotel room while he is on the road, “it’s cheaper than sitting at the bar,” mused William. But the lucky couple’s win means that William’s days on the road are near their end. “I will be putting most of the money away for my retirement in a few years, “$281,865 is a great boost to my retirement fund, but I also have had my eye on a two-seater jaguar, and I’m thinking about buying that too. Actually, I’ve already got the color picked out, silver, so I guess I am further along than just thinking about it,” William admits coyly.
