An online slots player named “123jaki” had the luckiest day of her life when she hit the second big jackpot at our three-dimensional casino, WinADay.com. She was playing Slot-O-Matic, the site’s most popular game – when she won $159,660 (123,620€).
“Slot-O-Matic is so easy to play,” said the excited winner. “I have to admit, I was daydreaming a bit when suddenly I saw that six-figure number! I had to get my husband to look at it before I could really believe it – I still find it hard to believe!”
This is only the second progressive jackpot win ever at the new 3D casino presented by Slotland.com. The first winner at the unique new site was an Italian player known as “Monica68” who won €116,200 ($148,724) playing Wheeler Dealer.
We're continually adding new games and WinADay.com currently has six slot machines and video poker games to choose from in its three dimensional Games Lobby. Animated casino staff are available in the Lobby to answer questions and direct players to their game.
Slot-O-Matic is the newest game at WinADay.com and has quickly become the most popular.
“We’ve found that virtually every player tries this game at least once, and most players take a few spins on it every time they come to the site,” said Ondrej Tuma of WinADay.com. “I think it’s because it’s such an easy game to play. Beginners like it, but even more experienced players that usually play the multi-payline games like to take a break once in awhile it seems.”
Only last week we wrote a cheque for a record-breaking $211K jackpot win on our main site.
“Should we just keep the cheque book open?” joked Tuma. “That’s the fun of it – we really don’t know how high it will go or when it will be hit again!”
This time the WinADay jackpot was won on the Slot-O-Matic but all six machines on the site are tied to the same progressive jackpot so it could have been any one of them.
The newest game, Slot-O-Matic, is an easy one payline, three-button slot machine while the game that came before that, Heavenly Reels, is a four pay line slot adorned with heavenly cherubs and with angel wings that appeals to strategic multi-line slots players. Gold Boom is a 9-wheel, 6-pay line slot machine that offers free bonus spins and awesome payouts.
WinADay.com games are all instant-play, no-download Flash games. There’s nothing for players to download or install – they are in the 3D casino lobby, ready to play, in seconds. All games are original, built using proprietary software only available at WinADay.com and they’re all tied to one progressive jackpot pool (separate from the Slotland.com jackpot).

After weeks of anticipation, our progressive jackpot has just been hit for a record-breaking $200,111 (€150,980). A player known as “FORGOMO” hit the historical jackpot on the always-popular Heavy Metal slot machine.
“I never dreamed I’d pay off my mortgage with an online slots win,” said the ecstatic jackpot winner. “I just make small bets and win a few dollars once in awhile. Now, let’s just say I’m not going to lose any sleep over my credit card balance!”
FORGOMO was a regular player at Slotland several years ago but until he started playing regularly again about a month ago he hadn’t spun the reels for quite awhile. Obviously he’s glad he came back!
This incredible jackpot breaks the record set last March when a Canadian player won $195,083 (€126,910). He was playing a Slotland favourite, Treasure Box.
Our last big progressive jackpot win was in December when a player known as ZONARIZ won $110,125 (€87,728) playing one of our popular video poker games, Striking 7s. Since the Slotland jackpot is won every six weeks or so last year, many players have felt this win was long overdue for weeks. The winner isn’t sorry it took so long and is quite happy to win it when it had had time to build to the largest jackpot ever at Slotland.
Heavy Metal, one of 16 unique games tied to the Slotland progressive jackpot, is a three-wheel, four-payline slot machine game. Any payline with has a bet placed on it can win. It is the first slot machine ever that allows players to place bets on their game history.
While our jackpots aren’t the biggest on the internet, they are hit so frequently that they are always popular with online slots players. Last year, we awarded nearly a million dollars in progressive jackpot wins.
Our 3D casino site, WinADay.com, has a separate progressive jackpot of its own that’s currently well over $150,000.
We currently feature thirteen unique slot machines and three video poker games. Four of the most popular online slot machines and two video poker games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All of Slotland’s games give players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot. All of the slots and video poker games on the mobile network are also tied to the same jackpot pools. Slotland is available in Spanish at Es.Slotland.com.

After the huge instant success of the new Slot-O-Matic slot machine at our 3D casino, WinADay.com, we discovered that while many players are attracted to elaborate new games, there is still quite an appetite for the simple pleasures of basic, uncomplicated games.
From the week it launched, Slot-O-Matic has been the most popular game in the collection of six amazing slot machines and video poker games available in the 3D games lobby at the new WinADay.com. In its first week, Slot-O-Matic was played 30% more than the next most popular game on the site, Wheeler Dealer video poker.
Most players have a favourite slot machine that they spend at least some time on pretty well every session. Most also like to take a break and try their luck on another game. Since its launch, most WinADay.com players have been spending at least part of their time on the new Slot-O-Matic. It’s become the favourite of many players. Many other players seem to find it a nice break from the more complex multi-payline games.
Slot-O-Matic’s symbols, music, speed and graphic design are reminiscent of old-school gaming – but with a contemporary 3D casino twist.
“In our company we are always discussing ideas for new games,” said Ondrej Tuma from WinADay/Slotland headquarters. “Our lead programmer came up with the idea that we should design a simple slot machine, one that would evoke the 80’s and the first computer games but still be in keeping with WinADay’s contemporary style. We didn’t really have any empirical data showing that people wanted to go back to the basics, just a hunch.”
“We developed this machine very quickly,” recalls Tuma. “From the first idea to launch was only one month. Then, overnight, it became the most played machine at WinADay Casino. Almost every player has tried this new slot machine at least once.”
Many slots players like to build up their bankrolls playing single payline games before moving to multiple payline games. Single payline slots are great when you want to stretch out your playing for an evening, or even if you just want to save money for an hour or so but still have a chance to win.
“The added feature of the fourth reel was a great idea. I love getting one more chance to win!” said WinADay and Slotland regular, TULSATWISTERS2. “Imagine my surprise when what looked like a losing spin turned into a winning spin because of that fourth reel.”
The new Slot-O-Matic is one of six instant-play, no download games at WinADay.com. Like all games on the site, it is tied to the WinADay.com progressive jackpot which is currently almost $150,000. This jackpot is separate from the progressive jackpot at Slotland.com which is nearing $200,000.

Two Progressive Jackpots Near Record Levels of Over $179K and Over $140K
The progressive jackpots at Slotland.com and our 3D casino WinADay.com, are at record levels and overdue for a hit. But a player known as LUCKYLADY has announced that she will be the ultimate winner and that all others should quit trying to win either the $179K jackpot at Slotland.com or the $140K jackpot at WinADay.com.
“I had a dream last night,” the player explained to one of our customer service representatives. “I saw it clear as day – I was playing my favourite slot machine, the Treasure Box, when suddenly the screen said I’d won the jackpot, over $178,000.”
The player is so convinced she’s going to hit the jackpot that she advises other players to quit trying.
“They can keep playing but all they’re going to do is increase the jackpot that I’m going to win,” she said. “I’m telling you, I know I’m going to win!!!”
Each time a player increases their bet to play the progressive, part of their wager goes into a huge progressive jackpot pool. With many players playing many different games, all contributing to the same jackpot, the prize can increase very quickly. Slotland’s progressive jackpot is currently going up about $1000 a day.
“I don’t know if this player’s dream will come true or not,” said Ondrej Tuma of Slotland.com. “But I think that part of the fun of casino games – and perhaps the only way to win – is believing that you will win.”
The Slotland jackpot is available on all 16 slot machines at Slotland.com and is currently over $178,000. Slotland’s games, which are not available at any other online casino, include such favourites as the Treasure Box, the Booster and the new Megaspin. The WinADay.com jackpot is separate from the Slotland jackpot and is available only on the six unique games at the 3D casino including the new Slot-O-Matic.
