    Talking Slotland Player is Counting Her Lucky Stars After $148,000 Jackpot Win

    Slotland Player is Counting Her Lucky Stars After $148,000 Jackpot Win
    After inching up slowly all summer, progressive jackpot reaches highest in months

    16 August 2010 (London, UK) – One of the oldest and most popular slot machines at one of the oldest and most popular online slots site 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 Stars, 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.

    The jackpot at Slotland was reset to $50,000 after this win. At Slotland’s sister casino WinADayCasino.com, whose games are accessible from the Slotland games lobby, the jackpot is currently over $85K.

    Default just my luck

    When slotland came out with their adult version with topless models on the wheel i was playing it one day when bored just to see what happened when you got 3 in a row. it was a 3 quarter game but i was just foolin around so i was only playing one quarter a spin.

    Wouldn't u know it i hit the jackpot which was around $72,000 I think at the time but since i was playing only 1 quarter i got $50, how funny is that!

    What happens to the affiliate if his player win a Jackpot? I think that Affiliates programs should pay a % to the "promoter" as the National Lotery pays a % to the sellers when they sell a winner ticket!

    That's an interesting idea. On the other hand, as some other programs might deduct the winnings before counting commission or carry over the negative figures to the next period, we never do any deductions for winnings
