One of our Newer Players Hits a $163,476 Jackpot

This jackpot may have taken a little longer than usual to be one, but the winner thinks it was well worth waiting for!

Slotland - slot machines and video poker, progressive jackpot winnerAfter 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.

WinADay's New 'Slot 21' Combines Slot Machines and Blackjack

Progressive jackpot tied to all slots games now over $170,000

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.

When the Red & Black scatter symbol appears on the right most reel, you have the option of playing the Red & Black Bonus Game where you can double the winnings of your 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 you earn “21 Cash” which can then be used to play a hand of blackjack. When you draw cards that come closer to 21 than the bank’s hand, without going over, your wager is doubled.

Five “crown” symbols wins the progressive jackpot which is currently over $170,000. The jackpot, which is tied to all of the slots games at WinADay.com, was last hit in March for $223K. Since it’s hit, on average, every six or eight weeks, many regular players at WinADay sense it is due for another big win any day now.

Deuces Wild video poker is WinADay’s Game of the Month for May.  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.

Last month WinADay launched a variation of another classic casino game.  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. You choose the number of wheels to spin just as you’d select how many pay lines to wager on in a slot machine.

WinADay.com now has 14 whimsical games: nine unique slot machines, four video poker games and  one roulette game. They’re all instant play, no download games that are available only at WinADay.com.
