He's No Stranger to the Winners Circle, but Our Latest Jackpot Winner Isn't Used to Winning Over $134K!

Slots player wins fairly often, but not as much as this progressive jackpot prize

Last week’s $134,385 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 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.
