It May Be Cold Outside But Our Progressive Jackpot is HOT

We've launched a new lobby designed to accommodate the many new one-of-a-kind games added in 2010

wad-xmasjackpot-160.jpgWinter winds may be howling across Europe and North America this month, but things are really heating up at  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 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, 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.

Our New Video Poker Game Has Brilliant Full Screen Graphics and a Double Bonus Round

Double Double Bonus Poker features multi-hand play and high four-of-a-kind payoffs

Double Double Bonus Poker video poker at WinADayCasinoWe've just launched a new video poker game at  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 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.

Jackpot Winner Will Play Santa With Sack Full of Cash This Christmas After Win on Jacks or Better

Progressive jackpot won on Jacks or Better, a classic game that’s just been improved with enhanced graphics and sound effects

slotland-jacksbetter-160.jpgWe'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 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 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,, the jackpot is over $80,000 after a $158K win earlier this month.
