Winter winds may be howling across Europe and North America this month, but things are really heating up at WinADayCasino.com. Our progressive jackpot is approaching $150K and well overdue for a big win. There are so many new games at WinADay now that the lobby has recently been redesigned to make room for them all. The next big win could happen on any of the unique online casino’s 21 one-of-a-kind games.
Although a couple of recent wins have been over $200K, the average is about $150,000. It’s usually won every six to 8 weeks. Since it’s approaching $150K again now, and since it’s been 6 weeks since Marie S won $158,778 playing the Slot 21 Game, many WAD players have a feeling it’s about time for a hit.
“Of course the jackpot can be won any time,” said WinADay Casino manager Michael Hilary. “It’s completely random. You just have to hit the right combination and have placed a max bet on that spin. But slot strategy isn’t always logical! When the jackpot gets big enough or goes long enough without a win, a lot of players start to feel like the very next spin could be a massive winner, so we see a lot more max bets at a time like this.”
There were six major jackpot winners at WinADayCasino.com in 2010. Marie S won $158,778 playing the Slot 21 Game just last month. In August, a Florida player won just under $100K playing the new Leprechaun Luck. A New Jersey film student won over $200,000 in June and a retired widower won a record-breaking $224,420 jackpot in March. The first jackpot win of 2010 was when a special education teacher won $115,803 on the Vegas Mania slot machine.
“On the one hand, I’d love to see the jackpot reach a quarter of a million dollars this time,” said Hilary. “That’d be a record. But on the other hand, we’d love to pay out a huge jackpot to someone right at Christmas! Our Reel De Luxe slot machine – the one that’s dedicated to shoppers – is all decked out for the holidays. Wouldn’t it be cool if someone hit the jackpot on that game!?”
Beginning with the new Aces and Faces video poker game that launched in January and including the new Double Double Bonus Poker that just launched earlier this month, WinADayCasino.com has added 11 unique and original new games to its collection this year. Leprechaun Luck launched in time for St. Patrick’s Day and Roulette 5 – a combination of slots and roulette -- followed in April. In May, Slot 21 with its Blackjack type bonus game was introduced and for summer, the exotic Tropical Treat slot machine arrived in June. Keno was added in July, La Roulette (a European Roulette game) arrived in August and Jackpot Jinni went online in September. Win A Fortune, based on the popular American TV game show, premiered in October and Egyptian-themed Pyramid Plunder made its debut in November. They’re all instant-play so there’s no downloading or installation required.
“When we first launched we had only three games displayed in a 3D lobby. Now that we have so many games we had to find an easier way for players to browse through them and to get quickly to their favourites. We’ve had nothing but positive response to the re-design.”
For December, WinADay’s Game of the Month is the Leprechaun Luck. Everyone that plays it is automatically entered in a draw for $500 in prize money and a chance to win a Dell Studio 15 laptop in a year-end draw. January’s Game of the Month will be Slot 21.

We've just launched a new video poker game at WinADayCasino.com. The new Double Double Bonus Poker has extraordinary graphics and sound effects and a free bonus round that extends playing time. Special launch week bonuses continue until Wednesday.
Double Double Bonus Poker is a variation of the Jacks or Better card game and has high bonus payoffs for several four of a kind combinations (x400 for Aces). Players can play up to fifty hands at once and can double their winnings in special playoff rounds.
The new game has a unique neo-Grecian theme – classic marble columns with a cartoony twist and a splash of flashing neon. It’s Caesar’s Palace through the eyes of our in-house creative design team – the off-the-wall crew that has produced such delightful visual feasts as the Egyptian-themed Pyramid Plunder, Slot 21 (a slot machine with a Blackjack-type bonus game) and classics like the retro-styled Slot-O-Matic.
Double Double Bonus Poker’s “Double or Collect” bonus game, triggered whenever total winnings exceed the amount bet, gives players lots of extra playing time for their dime (or wager up to $5 per hand) and is one of many reasons the new game is quickly becoming a favourite with so many of our regular players.
“The first thing I thought when I saw it was ‘Wow, big!’” said one player involved in pre-launch testing of the new game. “I’m not used to games filling up my whole screen with flashing neon lights like that! I’m glad my husband talked me into getting the big computer screen and nice speakers. I’m telling you, these new games really are getting to be just like sitting in front of a video poker terminal at a big fancy casino in Las Vegas. I love it!”
With Pyramid Plunder added last month and the TV-inspired Win a Fortune the month before, Double Double Bonus Poker now makes 21 one-of-a-kind slot machines, video poker, roulette and keno games at WinADayCasino.com They’re all instant-play so there’s no downloading or installation required.
This month WinADay’s Game of the Month is the Leprechaun Luck slot machine. Everyone that plays it is automatically entered in a draw for $500 in prize money and a chance to win a Dell Studio 15 laptop in a year-end draw.
The slots games at WinADay Casino are all tied to one big progressive jackpot which is currently approaching $100,000 again after a $158K win just a few weeks ago.

We've just paid out another big jackpot, this time to a first-time grandmother who's looking forward to playing Santa this year. She hit the Slotland jackpot last week and won $78,112. The player known as ROBINSONJ, who’s expecting her first grandchild in the new year, won playing her favourite Slotland game, the Jacks or Better video poker slot game.
The jackpot winner has been playing regularly at Slotland for about three years. She said that she finds playing slots to be relaxing and entertaining but that she knows when to stop.
“I have a small budget that I play with,” she said. “You can play quite awhile with not much money if you get lucky with free spins and bonus games.”
Smaller wins over the years have kept her going, but this is the first time the avid slots player has won anywhere near this much money.
“I was shaking! I couldn’t keep my eyes off the screen!” she said. “The timing couldn’t be better with Christmas coming and a new grandchild to shop for!”
This is one of the biggest progressive jackpots to be won on Jacks or Better. Just over a year ago another grandmother known as QAZMLP won $175,812 on the popular game. Slotland’s most recent jackpot winner was at the end of September when WINNIPEGLEG won $107,064 on the Wild Heart video poker slots game.
“All of our games are tied to one big progressive jackpot,” said Slotland.com Manager Michael Hilary. “Part of every max bet placed in any of our games goes into the jackpot pool until some lucky player spins a winning combination.”
To win the jackpot in Jacks or Better ROBINSONJ placed a $10 bet and then got a Royal Flush.
Jacks or Better is one of 7 popular games that Slotland has recently released in a new Flash format that enables the designers to include even more incredible graphics and sound effects. Like all Slotland games, their unique Jacks or Better video poker slots game is available only at Slotland.com.
Slotland now has 19 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker slots games. Six of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs.
The jackpot at Slotland was reset to $50,000 after this win and is already over $60,000. Meanwhile at Slotland’s sister casino, WinADayCasino.com, the jackpot is over $80,000 after a $158K win earlier this month.

Slots players can imagine themselves walking in the footsteps of the pharaohs as they spin the reels on our latest creation at WinADayCasino.com, the Egyptian-theme slot machine, Pyramid Plunder. And like the ancient tomb raiders they can strike it rich discovering treasures hidden within the pyramid.
“We’ve got games with leprechauns, genies, tropical animals and of course Las Vegas but one casino classic that we were missing was an Egyptian-themed game,” said Michael Hilary, manager of WinADayCasino.com. “We create all of our games ourselves – you won’t find any of them anywhere else – so we got our game developers to think ‘Egyptian’ and I think they’ve come up with one of their most spectacular designs yet!”
Pyramid Plunder is a five-reel, 25 pay line slot machine. Players can bet as little as 1¢ or as high as $4 per line per spin. This new game has three opportunities to win bonuses. There’s a Scarab beetle that walks over any non-winning spin to uncover new symbols that could make a winning combination. There’s also a Mummy that waves its arms and shifts its reel down by one or two symbols adding winnings from any new combinations created to winnings from the original spin.
But the ultimate Pyramid Plunder bonus is the Chamber of Treasures bonus game built into it. To reach the bonus game and enter the pyramid, players must collect four Pyramid symbols from the reels. Inside, they choose three tiles from the pyramid floor and can win cash, a free spin, a free pick or a map of one of the pyramids they may get to visit in their next bonus game.
Like all slots games at WinADayCasino.com, the new Pyramid Plunder is tied to the site’s progressive jackpot. Hitting 5 pharaohs with a total bet of $5.00 or more wins the progressive jackpot, which, after a recent $158K win, is currently about $40,000.
As it always does when it launches a new game, WinADayCasino.com is offering players bonus money and free gift draws. For starters, every player that logs on from November 13 through November 21 will find an extra $12 in their account to use to take a few spins on the new game. The twenty players with the most total bets on the Pyramid Plunder during the same period will split $3,250 in prize money with the top bettor winning $1,000. Everyone that plays at least 10 rounds on Pyramid Plunder between the 13th and 21st will automatically be included in a random draw for more prizes ranging from $50 to $200. (Bonus terms and conditions apply and are posted on the site.)
WinADayCasino.com launched its last new game, Win A Fortune (based on the popular American game show), just a few weeks ago and now has 20 one-of-a-kind games – slots, video poker, Roulette and Keno. All games are instant-play so there’s no downloading or installation required.

9 November 2010 (London, UK) – A WinADayCasino.com player has won a $158,778 progressive jackpot playing one of the newest games at the unusual online slots and video poker site. Marie S. won the massive jackpot playing the Slot 21, a slots game with a blackjack-style bonus game. All slots games at WinADay are tied to the same progressive jackpot but this is the first major jackpot winner on the relatively new game.
“Whenever our progressive jackpot goes over $100,000 it feels like it could be hit any day,” said WinADayCasino.com manager Michael Hilary. “When it gets to $150,000 we’re really on the edge of our seats!”
“You can only imagine how thrilled I was when I was happily spinning away; winning some and also losing some and the next thing I knew I hit the big one,” said the winner who has been playing at WinADayCasino.com almost two years. “Oh my, did I almost faint! I thought, this couldn't be happening to me!”
“Now comes the time to think what I will do with my win. It’s not as easy as it seems and I am not one to make quick decisions but I sure will enjoy every penny of this sweet win.”
The new Slot 21 has been incredibly popular with players since we launched it last May. The jackpot winner says it quickly became a personal favourite but it’s obviously now her all time favourite!
"When Slot 21 was released, I found it rather interesting. The design reminded me of some classic machine one would find in a land-based casino and the Blackjack bonus game looked fun so I was more than happy to give it a try. Although Win A Day has so many cool games to chose from, I must say it soon became one of my favourites.”
The new Slot 21 game at WinADayCasino.com online casino is a combination of two casino favourites, slot machines and blackjack. First and foremost, it’s a kitschy, retro, arcade-style slot machine reminiscent of the old strip in Las Vegas. But it also has two bonus card games built into it.
When the Red & Black scatter symbol appears on the right most reel, players have the option of playing the Red & Black Bonus Game where they can double the winnings of their last spin.
A second bonus game within this new slot machine is inspired by Blackjack. By collecting Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces on the slot machine reels players earn “21 Cash” which can then be used to play a hand of blackjack. When players draw cards that come closer to 21 than the bank’s hand, without going over, their wager is doubled. When a player spins five “crown” symbols like Marie S. did, they win the progressive jackpot.
Last month WinADayCasino.com added its 19th new one-of-a-kind game. The Win A Fortune slots game brings the thrills of America’s favourite television game show to an exciting new slot machine and has a nail-biting double-or-nothing Double Bonus Round. Like all games at WinADayCasino.com, Win a Fortune is an instant-play casino game so there’s no downloading or installation required.
This month WinADay’s Game of the Month is the Reel Deluxe, a slot machine dedicated to shoppers. Everyone that plays it this month is automatically entered in a draw for $500 in prize money and a chance to win a Dell Studio 15 laptop in a year-end draw.
The jackpot was reset to $30,000 after this win and has been increasing quickly since then.

We saved our latest new one-of-a-kind slot machine to launch this Halloween weekend. Conjuring images of evil fairy tale witches, the new Witch’s Brew is a magical treat for Halloween. To celebrate the launch of the new game there are up to 45% Halloween Deposit Bonuses all weekend and a chance in a random draw for $500 just by spinning the Witch’s Brew reels!
“The fairy tale witch theme of this game, with its cauldrons and black cats, make it a perfect Halloween slot machine!” said Michael Hilary of Slotland. “Like all of our new games, it has incredible full-screen graphics and amazing sound effects. We create all of our own games so you won’t find Witch’s Brew anywhere but Slotland.”
Witch's Brew is an uncomplicated single pay line slot machine where players watch the Witch's magic boil right in front of them. Players can bet as little as $0.50 or as much as $4.00 to see what the Witch has in store. During the game pots of jam fill up and boil over. Hidden witches activate Wild symbols according to the flavour of the overflowing jam. Boiling jam pots can activate more than one Wild symbol, increasing players’ chances of spinning a winning combination even more.
All Slotland players that log on this weekend, whether they’ve just signed up or been playing at the popular slots and video site since it began 12 years ago, will find a free $10 waiting in their account just to try the new Witch’s Brew.
All weekend we're giving an extra 20% Halloween Deposit Bonus on every deposit. On Sunday, combined with the Sunday Bonus Brunch, players can get up to 45% extra on deposits. Every spin on the Witch’s Brew between now and November 11 is one free entry in the Witch’s Brew Draw for $500.
Like all of Slotland’s slots games, Witch’s Brew is tied to the Slotland progressive jackpot. Every time a player plays max bet on any of these games, some of the wager goes into the progressive jackpot pool. In this game, spinning three Wild Pumpkins wins the progressive jackpot.
Slotland.com, which has just cleared up from its twelfth birthday celebrations, now has 19 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Many of the instant-play games have recently been upgraded with enhanced graphics and sound effects. Six of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs.
After AYAMAMOTO of Japan won $89,384 on the new Lucky Ducts slot machine just last week, the jackpot at Slotland is currently just over $53,000 and climbing. Meanwhile at Slotland’s sister casino, WinADayCasino.com, the jackpot is nearly $150,000 and seriously tempting fate.

We've just launched a new online slot machine at our WinADay Casino. You'll love the way it brings the thrills of America’s favourite television game show to an exciting new one-of-a-kind slot machine. The new Win A Fortune has a nail-biting double-or-nothing Double Bonus Round and a Fortune Wheel that gives additional Wild symbols with up to 5x multipliers. As it does every time a new game is launched, the unique online casino is giving players extra bonuses to take the new game for a spin.
Everyone that logs on to WinADayCasino.com during Win A Fortune launch week (October 16 – 22) will automatically get $10 added to their account just to try the new game. Everyone that plays at least 10 rounds is automatically entered in a free draw for another $2500 in bonuses with one lucky Win A Fortune player winning $1000. The 20 players that wager the most on Win a Fortune next week will split another $2500 in prizes with the Best Better receiving $500. Contest and bonus details are available by clicking Promotions on the site.
Win A Fortune is a 5 reel 15 pay line slot machine that’s really three games in one: the classic slot machine game, the Double Bonus game and the Fortune Wheel. A Double symbol on the rightmost reel triggers the Double Bonus Game where players can double the last spin’s winnings, and continue doubling them until they reach the top level of the flashing jackpot ladder.
Inspired by the popular American television game show, the Fortune Wheel above the slot machine reels has two wheels. It is triggered when the Fortune Wheel symbol appears on the fifth reel of the slots game below. The outer wheel determines which symbol will be wild in the main game and the win from the last round on the slot machine is re-calculated using the new Wild symbol as soon as the Fortune Wheel stops turning. The Inner Wheel gives the multiplier up to 5x.
Whenever one or more Chest symbols appear anywhere on the pay lines, a Treasure Chest opens to reveal additional symbols that when combined with the reel symbols can create winning combinations.
5 diamonds on one pay line with at minimum $5 bet wins the WinADay progressive jackpot that’s currently over $125,000.
After adding the mystical Jackpot Jinni slot machine only last month, Win A Fortune now makes 19 one-of-a-kind slot machines, video poker, multi-hand keno and roulette games at the unique instant-play online casino.

Although Slotland.com has been around since the very beginning of online casinos, other than adding new games it has changed very little. For its 12th birthday this week, the slots and video site has launched a new look that shows off its selection of one-of-a-kind games, many with newly enhanced graphics and sound effects, even better. Special Birthday Bonuses this week invite players to join in the celebrations.
“Even players that told us to never change anything are telling us that they like this little facelift,” said casino manager Michael Hilary. “It makes it much easier to browse through the games. But the basic organization is the same and our design team has kept the same comfortable look and feel that the site has had since the beginning. It’s still black with white type!”
Players get a Birthday Bonus just by logging in between October 1st and 7th. The first time they do they’ll find a free $50 automatically added to their account. Then to top off the birthday celebration, there will be a random draw where 2 players will win $1,212, 12 players will win $112 and another 48 players will win $12. Each deposit during the birthday week is one entry in the draw. Bonus and contest details are posted on the site.
This summer, Slotland introduced new enhanced versions of five of its most popular games with improved graphics and sound effects. With stunning game graphics that fill the whole screen the new games make familiar favourites more fun than ever. The re-designed games have brief video tutorials to get new players started. Five spectacular new games debuted in July: Jacks of Better, Golden 8, Reel Riot, Treasure Box and Wild Heart video poker. Since then, the new Lucky Ducts has been added.
Slotland.com currently features 16 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Six of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. They’re all instant play casino games with nothing to download or install.
All of Slotland’s slot machines are tied to one progressive jackpot. Recently reset after two big wins this summer, the progressive jackpot is currently over $58,000. Meanwhile at Slotland’s sister casino, WinADayCasino.com, the jackpot recently topped $100,000.

The last big winner at Slotland.com has barely had time to spend their $147,711 win and the popular slots and video site’s progressive jackpot has already been hit again. A Canadian player has just won $107,064 playing the Wild Heart video poker game. Wild Heart is one of six slot machines and video poker games now available with enhanced graphics and sound effects.
The Slotland progressive jackpot tends to be won every six to eight weeks for an average of about $150,000. The latest win is less than usual but comes only five weeks after the last win.
“I know some jackpots go years or months without a win, but ours is won quite frequently,” said Slotland.com Manager Michael Hilary. “We don’t usually have to wait very long between wins but we were pretty surprised to have another big jackpot winner again so soon!”
All of the slots at Slotland are tied to the same jackpot. Every time a player plays max bet on any of these games, some of the wager goes into the progressive jackpot pool. Hitting the right combination with a max bet placed wins the progressive jackpot. To win the jackpot on Wild Heart WINNIPEGLEG got a Royal Flush on all three lines when he had a max bet on each line.
“Believe me, I’ve often daydreamed about what I’d do if I won a jackpot,” said the winner. “Now that it’s happened I can't remember any of the wonderful things I wanted to do! I’ll probably donate some to a good cause and invest some of it. But I’m also going to buy a few treats for my wife and myself!”
Wild Heart, a multi-hand video poker game with an exotic jungle theme, is a unique variation of Double Joker video poker. It’s a triple play video poker game where players have a chance to win on several lines at a time. The object is to get the best possible five card poker hand on one or all three lines. There are three 54-card decks, each with two wild cards. The same cards are dealt to all three lines. Players can hold one or more cards and, on the next spin, receive up to five new cards on each line.
There have been many smaller jackpot wins on Wild Heart but this is the largest since May 2008 when a player won $88,000 on the popular video poker game.
Slotland.com currently features 16 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Five of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All of Slotland’s slot machines give players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot. They’re all instant play casino games with nothing to download or install. Many are now available in Flash format and fully compatible with iPhones.
The jackpot at Slotland was re-set to $50,000 after this win. The jackpot at Slotland’s sister casino, WinADayCasino.com, was also won last month for almost $100,000 and is already over that again.
Thursday, September 16, 2010
By collecting magic lamps players can earn ten free bonus spins in a bonus game where three jackpots are available to be won. There’s also a Bonus Cash scatter symbol that multiplies winnings whenever it appears.
Wednesday, September 8, 2010
As a welcome bonus VIPs receive $50 when they enter the Bronze level, another $100 when they get to Silver and another $200 when they reach Gold. These are in addition to 100% VIP match bonuses of $100 to $250. Players are invited to join the first level of the VIP program when they have been with the site for at least 60 days and deposited $5000.
WinADay gives a monthly bonus to players that play its designated game-of-the-month, this month the the Jacks Show video poker. If a VIP player wins they will receive double Game of the Month Bonuses -- $1000 instead of $500. Other VIP benefits and terms and conditions are on the website: www.WinADayCasino.com.
The human touch is what sets WinADay’s customer service apart but some new technology is also helping our players get support when they need it. The new Live Chat system now offers all players instant, live, one-on-one customer support.
We've just added several new slot machines at WinADay, most recently Leprechaun Luck which last month produced a $96K jackpot winner. Still primarily a slots and video poker site, WinADay has introduced other traditional casino games lately: Roulette 5 (5 wheels, 2 zeroes), La Roulette (European rules), Slot21 and Keno. There are now 17 games, all instant play, no downloading or installation required.
Just hit last month, WinADayCasino.com’s progressive jackpot is already back up to nearly $70,000.
Tuesday, August 24, 2010
We had our second major jackpot winner of the summer at WinADayCasino.com when Glenn P. won $96,466 playing the new Leprechaun Luck slot machine last week. The winner, who’s been spinning the reels at WinADay practically since we launched it, said he plans to take his wife on a dream vacation in Europe with his jackpot prize money.
“The first time I went to WinADay I thought, hmm, this is different. I’d played at a few online slots sites but I’d never seen anything like their unusual slot machines!” said Glenn P. “Then they just kept adding more new games so I just kept playing there. Who knew one day I’d hit a big jackpot like this!?”
All of the one-of-a-kind slots games at WinADayCasino.com are linked to one progressive jackpot which is why they increase in value so quickly. Although $96K is a nice win by anyone’s standards, it’s actually a little lower than the average jackpot win at WinADay which is about $150,000. The last big jackpot win was in June when a film student won over $200,000 playing the Jacks Show video poker game.
“Considering this player hit the jackpot playing Leprechaun Luck,” said WinADay manager Michael Hilary, “I hope he’s including Ireland on the big European vacation he told us he’d be taking with his winnings!”
Launched last St Patrick’s Day, Leprechaun Luck is a 5-reel, 31-payline slot machine adorned with shamrocks, rainbows and pots of gold. It features Wild and Double Wild symbols, a Cauldron bonus and an adventurous Bonus Game. Spinning five rainbows with a bet of at least $5 on the winning pay line, as Glenn P. did last week, wins the jackpot.
After adding a new European Roulette game, La Roulette, last month, we nowhave 17 one-of-a-kind slot machines, video poker and roulette games at WinADay. All games are instant-play so there’s no downloading or installation required.
This month WinADay’s Game of the Month is the Vegas Mania. Everyone that plays it is automatically entered in a draw for $500 in prize money and a chance to win a Dell Studio 15 laptop in a year-end draw.
The jackpot was reset to $30,000 after this win and has been increasing quickly since then.

Get More Bang for Le Buck With the Low Betting Option on Our New European Roulette Game, La Roulette
La Roulette is like Roulette 5 -- there are five roulette wheels, not just one -- but since it is played by European Roulette rules, there is no double-zero like in American Roulette. Having only one zero gives a slight edge to players since each spin has a 1 in 37 chance of landing on any one number rather than 1 in 38.
With La Roulette’s new low betting option, players can place bets as low as $.10. On any spin, they can bet on one, two, three, four or all five wheels.
“There’s no doubt that our players’ favourite games are slot machines like Vegas Mania, Slot-o-matic and the new Tropical Treat,” said WinADayCasino.com manager Michael Hilary, “but even players that usually stick with just one or two favourite slot machines seem to like taking a break from slots to play some Roulette or Keno once in awhile.”
To encourage you to try the new La Roulette, we're making two special offers. Everyone that plays 10 or more rounds on La Roulette between August 19th and 25th will be automatically entered in a free bonus draw. Five randomly chosen players will each receive a $200 bonus and another five will each receive $100.
We want to know what players think about the new game so please send your feedback on La Roulette to firstname.lastname@example.org. The best five testimonials will also each receive $75 in their account.
This month WinADayCasino’s Game of the Month is the Vegas Mania slot machine. Play it and you're automatically entered in a monthly draw for $500 in prize money and a chance to win a Dell Studio 15 laptop in a year-end draw.

One of our oldest and most popular online slots has produced a $148,711 progressive jackpot winner. A player who only started spinning the reels at Slotland.com three years ago hit the massive jackpot playing the Lucky Stars slot machine.
“I’m so excited I can't think straight,” said the winner, known as SOUTHBELLE. “I’m sure not used to having that kind of spending money so I really don’t know what I’ll do with it! I’m terrible for spoiling my family. Can’t help it! So I’ll have some fun with this that’s for sure. First though, my brother has been going through some tough times lately so I’m going to help him with some of the bills that have piled up.”
Lucky Stars is a five-payline slot machine game giving five chances of winning. Each payline which has a bet placed on it can win. Its "Hold" feature appears randomly during play and there is a special bonus round multiplying all wins by 10. Although Lucky Stars is one of the oldest and most popular games at Slotland, it hasn’t had a big progressive jackpot winner since December 2007.
“People play a little less in the summer so the progressive hasn’t increased as fast as it has shot up a few times in the past,” said Slotland Manager Michael Hilary. “But it was worth waiting for I’d say! Last fall it was getting hit pretty well monthly so we weren’t seeing six-figure jackpots like this. We had a $168,476 winner in May but other than that this is our biggest win since last October.”
All of the slots at Slotland are tied to the same jackpot. Every time a player plays max bet on any of these games, some of the wager goes into the progressive jackpot pool. Hitting the right combination with a max bet placed wins the progressive jackpot. In Lucky Stars, a max bet is only $2. If five bars appear on a line with a $2 bet, the jackpot is won.
“I like playing Lucky Stars because there’s a bit of slots strategy involved,” said the winner. “When you get the ‘hold’ feature you have to decide whether or not to keep what you’ve got or take your chances on another spin. Bonus rounds multiply wins so if I feel like I’m close to hitting one I like to make sure I’m betting max to make the most of it.”
Slotland.com currently features 15 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Four of the most popular games, including Lucky Starsd, are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. Slotland’s games do not require any downloading or installation as they are all instant play casino games. Some are now available in Flash format with improved graphics and sound.
We reset the jackpot to $50,000 after this win. At WinADayCasino.com, our other online casino whose games are accessible from the Slotland games lobby, the jackpot is currently over $85K.

Known for its one-of-a-kind slots and video poker games, WinADay.com has introduced its own unique version of another casino classic, Keno. Keno is a straightforward, easy to play game of lucky numbers. The excitement builds in this amazing new game from the moment the dramatic, futuristic sound track starts to play on the multi-ticket game until the 20 winning numbers are dramatically displayed.
“For a long time, like our other site – Slotland.com – WinADay.com was all slot machines and video poker games. This is the second new casino game that we’ve added to WinADay,” said casino manager Michael Hilary. Many of our players play only slots but many have told us over the years that they also enjoy other online casino games like Roulette and Keno.
This is the second game at WinADay.com that’s not a slot machine or video poker game. Roulette 5, which was introduced in April, combines slots and roulette.
Keno has come a long way since the ancient Chinese used pigeons to deliver Keno numbers to outlying villages. WinADay.com’s new online Keno is a sophisticated high tech game that’s simple to play. Players can pick their own 15 numbers or use the Quick Pick feature to let the game select for them. WinADay Keno players can play up to 7 tickets, or selections of numbers, per game. More numbers to watch means more fun. Any way it’s played, playing Keno is as simple as waiting for those numbers to come up.
For players that are new to Keno and want to get some practice before betting real money, WinADay Keno can be played in free mode or for real money.
WinADay has had to expand its casino games room to accommodate all of the new games that have been added this year. With the addition of the new Tropical Treat slot machine last month and now the new Keno, there are now 16 one-of-a-kind games at WinADay. There are nine slot machines, four video poker games and WinADay’s unique versions of two classic casino games. All games are instant-play so there’s no downloading or installation required.
All of the online slot machines at WinADay.com are tied to a common progressive jackpot which is currently over $65,000. Just last month, a film student won $200,859, WinADay’s second largest progressive jackpot ever.

Slotland’s games developers have been very busy improving the graphics and sound effects of the site’s most popular online slot machines and video poker games, but they’ve also found time to come up with an entirely new game. The new Lucky Ducts, a 5-reel, 19-payline slot machine with multipliers and free spins, has just launched. The new game looks and sounds great in regular format but in the new Flash format it is amazing.
Lucky Ducts’ swimming pool theme brings relief from summer heat as rubber duckies, beach balls and toy fish spin on the watery wheels of this one-of-a-kind game. 3 Water Faucet symbols at a time raise the Bonus Reservoir one level and increase the win multiplier to x2, x5, x10, x25 and finally x50. Players get 6 free spins when the Bonus Reservoir reaches the top level and overflows.
Like all slots games at Slotland.com, Lucky Ducts is tied to the site’s famous progressive jackpot. Five Diamond symbols on one payline, with a bet of $20, wins the jackpot which is currently over $110,000. Hit quite regularly every six to eight weeks, the average Slotland jackpot win is about $150,000.
The new Lucky Ducts is one of six games at Slotland.com that is available in the new Flash format with enhanced sound effects and graphics. Slotland’s new Flash games also feature improved navigation to other games and site features, and brief video tutorials to get new players started. The 5 games that have been re-launched so far are the Golden 8, Reel Riot and Treasure Box slot machines and video poker games Wild Heart and Jacks or Better.
There’s still time for Slotland players to enter a special summer photo contest for a chance to win a $250 or $100 bonus. To enter, players are invited to submit, by 31st July, photos of their favourite place to play Slotland games. Entries will be posted at www.flickr.com/photos/slotland.
Slotland.com now has 16 original slot machines and video poker games not available at any other online casino site. Four of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All of Slotland’s slot machines give players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot. Slotland’s games are all instant play casino games so there’s nothing to download or install. free.

On the surface, we're still the same easy-to-use all slots and video poker site that has been popular with online casino players around the world for more than ten years, but new Flash versions of many of the popular games with enhanced sound effects and graphics are giving our players a whole new experience. Five of our fifteen games are now available in enriched Flash format. New, improved versions of the remaining games will be launched in coming months.
“I’ve always liked the slots at Slotland, that’s one of the reasons I’ve been playing here practically since the internet was invented,” said one regular player. “The new games are the same basic games but the new graphics and sounds are a real treat for the senses!”
“The other reason I stick with Slotland,” continued the player, “Is that their customer service is so good. They’re always very prompt and polite when they answer questions and there’s never any fuss when you deposit or withdraw.”
The new game graphics look best when the new "full screen" option, which blows the game graphics to fill the whole screen, is selected. The re-designed games also feature improved navigation to other games and site features, and brief video tutorials to get new players started. The 5 games that have been re-launched so far are:
Jacks or Better – players hold and draw cards to collect the best possible poker hand, trying to get at least a pair of Jacks
Golden 8 – spinning diamonds earns bonus spins that multiply the last spin’s winnings
Reel Riot -- a kitschy three wheel, single payline slot machine where up to two of the three reels can be held for the next spin and a Double Wild symbol can double or quadruple a winning line’s payout.
Treasure Box – a strategic, skill-based slot game that uses the same type of slot strategy as multi-hand video poker games such as Triple Play
Wild Heart – roaring lions and cursor eating snakes adorn this triple video poker game played with three 54-card decks (that include two jokers to increase chances of winning)
In a special summer contest, Slotland players are invited to submit photos (to email@example.com) of their favourite place to play at Slotland. Entries close 31 July when the best photo will win a $250 bonus, the next two $100 each and the remaining two $50 each! Entries will be posted on Flickr as they are received.
Slotland.com currently features 15 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Four of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All of Slotland’s slot machines give players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot. There’s nothing to download or install at Slotland since all games, including the new Flash version, are instant play casino games.
Our jackpot, which was hit in May for over $163,000, is already back up to over $100,000. Meanwhile at our other casino, WinADay.com, the jackpot was won last month for $200,000 and is currently over $55,000.

Regular players at WinADay.com know that when the progressive jackpot gets as close to $200,000 as it was last week it can’t be long before it’s hit. And sure enough, it was! A film student won more than enough to pay off his student loans when he won $200,859 playing the our popular video poker game, Jack’s Show.
“I was just killing time taking my mind off my studies for a bit when suddenly, out of the blue, I hit the big one!” said the player known as LUCKYTOM. “I’ll probably blow some of this win on some party celebrations but I’m going to invest most of it in a film project I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.”
This is the second highest win we've ever had at WinADay.com, the largest being the $223,420 jackpot won by a retired widower playing the Reel De Luxe slot machine in March. Before these last two wins, the WinADay jackpot was usually hit every six weeks for $100,000 to $150,000. If these last two jackpots are any indication, bigger jackpots hit more frequently could become the norm.
“We’ve added several new games recently so the casino has been even busier than usual,” said our online casino manager Michael Hilary. “Many of our regular players knew we were a bit overdue for a big win so more of them have been placing max bets and going for the jackpot lately. Every time they do, part of their wager goes into the jackpot pool so recently it had been accumulating ever faster than usual.”
After adding a new game every month for the last few months our casino now has 15 one-of-a-kind games: nine slot machines, four video poker games and Roulette 5 which combines slots fun with the thrills of Roulette. All games are instant-play so there’s no downloading or installation required.
“We have our own team of games developers that create all of our games, only for us,” said Hilary. “You won’t see our games – or anything quite like them – anywhere but WinADay.com.”
Jack’s Show is one of the games that we first launched with. Animated jesters frolic across the screen dealing cards and perform special antics for winning hands. The object of the game is to obtain the best poker hand possible. Players can wager from $1 to $25 per hand.
This month WinADay’s Game of the Month is the Slot-O-Matic. Everyone that plays it is automatically entered in a draw for $500 in prize money and a chance to win a Dell Studio 15 laptop in a year-end draw.

We've just launched our most exotic new online slot machine ever at WinADay.com! The new Tropical Treat is a 50-payline slot machine with free spins and amazing fun-in-the-sun video graphics. Like all games at WinADay.com, it’s one-of-a-kind and only available at the whimsical online casino which is operated by Slotland.com, one of the oldest and most popular slots and video poker sites in the world.

After tantalizing our players for several weeks, the progressive jackpot at Slotland.com has been hit again for $163,476. A player known as "YUKON", who has only been playing with a little over a year, won the jackpot playing one of our oldest and most popular slot machines, the Golden 8. Normally won every six to eight weeks, the last six-figure win was in early February. For several weeks many players at our all slots and video poker site had been expecting it to be won any minute.
Although the progressive jackpot is usually won by the time it reaches $150,000, the winner didn’t mind waiting just a little longer to receive significantly more.
"Of course you always hope you’re going to win a big one someday. After all, that’s why we play!" said the winner. "But I honestly never really expected something like this to happen to me! Even when I saw it on my screen I could hardly believe it! It wasn’t until the Customer Service Rep at Slotland contacted me that it really started to sink in."
YUKON plans to pay off some debts with his winnings and to go someplace sunny and warm for a holiday.
Last year we paid out nearly $800,000 in progressive jackpot wins. This is the second major jackpot win on the Golden 8 slot. Treasure Box has produced three big jackpot winners in the last couple of years, and two players have struck it rich playing the Jacks or Better video poker slot game.
"I don’t waste my money trying to win million dollar jackpots at other sites," said one of our players. "The reason some of those are so big is that they are rarely, if ever, actually won. But Slotland has a big winner every few weeks, it seems, so I feel like I actually have a chance to win here. "
We currently have 15 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Four of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All of our slot machines give players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot. They’re all instant play casino games with nothing to download or install. Some are now available in Flash format and fully compatible with iPhones.
The jackpot at Slotland is currently over $58,000. Meanwhile at our other casino, WinADay.com, the jackpot was last won at the end of March for a record-breaking $224,420 and is currently over $180,000.

Our new Slot 21 game at WinADay.com online casino is a combination of two casino favourites, slot machines and blackjack. First and foremost, it’s a kitschy, retro, arcade-style slot machine reminiscent of the old strip in Las Vegas. But it also has two bonus card games built into it.
Tuesday, April 20, 2010
Breaking with our own tradition -- until now our untraditional online casino has been all slots and video poker -- we've just launched our own version of roulette. The new Roulette 5 is American roulette that’s as easy to play as a slot machine.
With 5 wheels, this unique version of the classic casino game gives five chances to win on one spin and five times the thrills of regular roulette. Players choose the number of wheels to spin just as they’d select how many pay lines to wager on in a slot machine.
Heavenly Reels, a comical slot machine adorned with angelic cherubs, is our Game of the Month for April. Everyone that plays it is automatically entered in a draw for $500 in prize money. At the end of the year, all Game of the Month tickets will be entered in one draw for a Dell Studio 15 laptop.

A Retired Widower Has Won WinADay.com's Biggest Progressive Jackpot Ever and Will Help His Son with the $223,420
“I’ve been living with my son since my wife passed away,” said the winner. “He was sitting right next to me when I hit the jackpot! Now I can do something really special for him.”
This is the eighth six-figure jackpot at the unique online casino since it launched. Although the jackpots have averaged about $150,000 there was a nearly $200,000 winner at Christmas. There’s no predicting when a major jackpot will be won, but at WinADay.com it happens, on average, about every six weeks. The jackpot has been re-set and is already over $80,000.
“I know some jackpots get much bigger, but I don’t think there are any others that are hit for this much money this often,” said Michael Hilary of WinADay.com.
The Reel De Luxe is an easy-to-play 5 reel, 25 payline slot machine with a luxurious shopping theme, wild symbols, 2 special bonus features and a bonus game. Its “Present Bonus” feature awards up to 500x the bet and there’s also a special Cash Bonus Game with prizes up to $1500. For shoppers that look for the best deals around there’s a “Discount Bonus” - a discount from total bets on 3 spins up to 100%.
Constantly adding outlandishly designed new games to its collection of custom slot machines and video poker games, WinADay.com recently launched Leprechaun Luck, a 5-reel, 31-payline game with Wild and Double Wild symbols and bonus games. Another new game will be announced later this month.
Unlike the cookie-cutter games at most online casinos, WinADay’s 13 fancifully-designed games -- nine unique slot machines tied to one progressive jackpot, and four video poker games -- are not available at any other casino. All instant play, no download games, they can only be found at WinADay.com.

WinADay.com, our unusual online casino where we offer an extraordinary suite of whimsical, one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games, launches its latest creation today, St Patrick’s Day. The new Leprechaun Luck slot is a 5-reel, 31-payline game. It features Wild and Double Wild symbols, a Cauldron bonus and an adventurous Bonus Game. Like all slots at WinADay, it is tied to the site’s progressive jackpot which is currently nearly $150K.
To celebrate the launch of the new game, two special St Patrick’s promotions begin today at WinADay.com. The 20 players with the most total bets on the new Leprechaun Luck slot machine between now and March 23rd will be declared “Leprechaun Best Betters”. The top Best Better will receive $500, the next four will get $250, the next five will get $100 each and the remaining ten will each get $50. Everyone that plays the new Leprechaun Luck game until March 23rd will also get one ticket in a random draw for the $500 “Leprechaun’s Pot o’ Gold” prize. A total of $3000 will be given away – and that’s no blarney!
Leprechaun Luck is really two games in one. Collecting four symbols -- Shoes, Hat, Harp and Horseshoe – triggers a bonus game that’s similar to Snakes and Ladders. Bets can be multiplied up to 500x if the little leprechaun steps on the right shamrocks.
Five rainbows with a $5 bet wins the big jackpot on Leprechaun’s Luck. It’s just a month since Sara M hit the WinADay progressive jackpot for $115,803 playing the Vegas Mania slot machine but since WinADay has been so busy lately the progressive jackpot has already gone way over that.
Bonus Poker is the Game of the Month at WinADay and everyone that plays that game is automatically entered in another draw. At the end of the month five randomly drawn players will split $500 in prize money. At the end of the year, all Game of the Month tickets will be entered in one draw for a Dell Studio 15 laptop.
“New game promotions and weekly, monthly and year-end draws, it’s getting hard to keep track of all the ways we give away money these days!” said Michael Hilary of WinADay.com.
WinADay.com has 11 fancifully-designed games: six unique slot machines and four video poker games. They’re all instant play, no download games that are available only at WinADay.com.

He's No Stranger to the Winners Circle, but Our Latest Jackpot Winner Isn't Used to Winning Over $134K!
progressive jackpot win was massive by anyone’s standards, but even the frequent-player that won it says it’s a big win compared to the other jackpots he’s won. The player known as SURFSIDESID won this jackpot playing the Genie-themed Magic slot machine.
“I do play slots a lot, and I do win often enough to keep me going,” said SURFSIDESID when we called him to congratulate him. “I’ve never won anything anywhere near this though, that’s for sure!”
SURFSIDESID has been a regular player at Slotland.com for about three years. He plays quite often and has won a few very large payouts but this huge jackpot is a lot even for this lucky spinner.
“I tend to play a lot for awhile, and then I give it a break for awhile,” said the player. “I was thinking it was about time for a break but, as luck would have it, I decided to take just a few spins that day. I think I’ll take a break now though, to spend some of this money!”
After three in a row last fall, our jackpot hadn’t been hit for 9 weeks so many players sensed it was about due for a win. There have been 3 big jackpot wins since then, but this is the biggest since the $175K win in October. Our jackpot is hit fairly frequently and is usually won before it goes over $200,000. It topped that once though when a British dad known as FORGOMO won $200,111 playing the Heavy Metal slot machine last spring.
We had a record year for jackpots and bonuses in 2009. A total of $799,309 was paid out in progressive jackpots last year and more than $68,500 was given to players as bonuses in year end draws.
All slot machines at Slotland are tied to the same jackpot but this is the first time that the jackpot has been won on the Magic slot machine. Heavy Metal, Mega Spin, Slotris, Jacks or Better and Treasure Box all had big wins last year. After this win, the jackpot was reset to $50,000 and rises with every max bet placed.
Our slot machines and video poker games are all instant play casino games with nothing to download or install. Some are now available in Flash format and compatible with iPhones. All of our slot machines, including the mobile versions, are tied to one progressive jackpot which was reset to $50,000 after this win.
Friday, February 12, 2010
The progressive jackpot at WinADay.com, our 3D online casino, has been hit for $115,803. Sara M, a special ed teacher, won the massive jackpot playing the Vegas Mania slot machine.
“My mates wanted me to go out with them but I just somehow felt more like staying in that night,” said the winner. “Part of me did want to go out but in the end I’m sure glad I just made myself a drink and settled in for a night playing slots instead of going clubbing!”
The party ended up being at Sara’s place when she texted her news to her friends.
“My friends sometimes make fun of me when I’d rather play slots than go out but after that incredible night I don’t think I’ll be getting teased quite so much!”
Launched last April, Vegas Mania is a five-reel, 21 payline slot machine featuring all the bells and whistles that a true Vegas Maniac looks for. Players get up to fifteen free spins. Wild symbols increase the chance of winning and Double Wilds not only increase chances of winning but also double those winnings. Vegas Mania is a high stakes slot machine with a total maximum bet of $84 per spin. Players can win up to 3000 times the betted amount.
There were two large jackpot winners at WinADay.com in December, but this is the first one this year. After a record-breaking $198K jackpot win on the Heavenly Reels slot machine before Christmas, another player won $109K playing Gold Boom at the end of the month.
Gold Boom is WinADay’s Game of the Month for February and players can win extra prize money just for playing it. For every 500 spins on the Gold Boom game, players win one ticket in a month-end random draw for cash prizes ranging from $50 to $250.
With the launch of its fourth video poker game last month, WinADay.com now has 11 one-of-a-kind games in its lobby: six unique slot machines and four video poker games. All of the slot machines are tied to the WinADay progressive jackpot which, after this win, was reset to $30,000 and is already over $40,000.
WinADay is an instant play Flash casino so there is nothing to download or install before enjoying the games. All games are unique to WinADay.com and not available anywhere else.
