After attracting gamers for several weeks, the progressive jackpot prize at Slotland worth $163,476 dollars has been hit on May 25th, 2010. A player named “Yukon”, who has only been playing on the site for a year, won the jackpot playing one of the most popular online slot games at the casino, the Golden 8.
The jackpot, which is normally won every 6 to 8 weeks, the last one was won in early February 2010. For several weeks, a lot of gamers at the site had been expecting the progressive jackpot to be won any minute. Although the jackpot is usually won by the time that it reaches $150,000 dollars, the lucky winner did not mind waiting for a little longer to receive a bigger jackpot.
“Yukon” said that every player is hoping to take home a big one someday. “Yukon” said that the whole thing was hard to believe. It is only when the customer service representative confirmed the good news that it started to finally sink in. “Yukon” plans to use some of his winnings to pay off his debts and take a vacation.
In 2009, Slotland paid out nearly $800,000 dollars in progressive jackpot wins. This is the 2nd biggest jackpot win on the Golden 8 slot game. The Treasure Box game has produced three big progressive jackpot winners in the last few years and two gamers have struck it big in the Jacks or Better video poker slot game.
Some Slotland gamers said that they do not want to waste their time and money in other sites trying to win jackpots. Slotland currently offers fifteen unique slot machine games as well as video poker games. Four of the most well-known games are also available on PDA and mobile phone formats.
All of the online site’s slot machine games give gamers the chance of placing a maximum wager for a chance to win the progressive jackpot. They are all instant play games that do need installation or download.
Some of the slot games are available in flash format and are fully compatible with iPhones. The jackpot at the site is currently more than $58,000 dollars.
