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.

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.
