A WinADay Player Will Use His $96K Jackpot to Take His Wife on Dream Vacation

Leprechaun Luck slot machine one of 17 one-of-a-kind games at WinADayCasino.com

wad-leprechaunjackpot-160.jpgWe 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

Since we launched our first roulette game, Roulette 5, at WinADayCasino, we've noticed that lots of slots players seem to like a break from slots and video poker once in awhile. Roulette 5 and our new Keno game has been so popular, we've just launched a new European Roulette game, La Roulette. The new La Roulette has a “low bet” option that can give players more bang for le buck.

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 support@winadaycasino.com. 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 VIP Players is Counting Her Lucky Stars After $148,000 Jackpot Win

After inching up slowly all summer, progressive jackpot reached highest in months

slotland-jackpot-stars-160.jpgOne 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.
