$231,000 Online Poker Jackpot
By staff
Can an online poker player share in the mega-jackpot excitement of a slot machine win? Before today the answer was no, but all that has changed since jwhite8 won $231,000 on InterCasino’s (www.intercasino.com) Spice Island Progressive Poker game. An avid and discerning poker player, jwhite8 drew the coveted Royal Flush, fulfilling every poker player’s dream. But for jwhite8, the dream didn’t end there since jwhite8 played his perfect-hand with a $1 progressive side-bet. That $1 extra made all the difference when jwhite8 emptied the massive poker-pot coffers into his InterCasino account.

“That $1 won him $231,000,” said magnanimous InterCasino manager Ryan Hartley, “‘jwhite8’ will never play non-progressive poker again. Spice Island’s jackpot never goes below $100,000 and always just costs a buck.”

jwhite8 has been playing at InterCasino for more than five years, and of course was delighted to get an email from celebrity manager Ryan Hartley after winning the mega-jackpot. jwhite8 responded to Hartley’s congratulatory note by writing:

“Thank you for your note. I was totally surprised when I saw the royal flush. I had been playing a good bit lately as I felt some Straight Flushes were due as indicated by the size of the jackpot and I was hoping to get one, but it was a real shocker to win $231,000!

I think I started playing at InterCasino in 1996 or 97 and have had some decent winners since. I have played Progressive Poker quite a bit in casinos, cruise ships etc. since the mid-eighties but this is the very first royal flush I have ever had! About time!”

Spice Island has brought land-based progressive poker to the internet, and InterCasino has provided the mega-jackpots to make the game worth the poker-sharp’s action. Spice Island can be played single or multi-player with chat and community features in multiplayer mode. Unlike other online poker games, Spice Island offers users the option to place a one dollar side bet that pays out a progressive jackpot to whomever draws the next Royal Flush.
