November 30, 2005 (London, UK) – His mind may have wandered, and he may have strayed from his tried and true betting strategy, but a Slotland.com player recently won a $66,375 Jackpot anyway. ‘TNVOLS’ has followed a regular betting strategy since he started playing at Slotland.com, the world’s most popular all-slots website. Like most gamblers, sometimes it worked, sometimes not.
“I have a special love for Blackjack, so Space Jack is a game I like to play a lot,” said TNVOLS. “I’ve played or months, trying to find some pattern that would keep me ahead of the game. Usually, I bet the maximum bet of $20 on one hand, and the minimum bets of $1 each on the other two hands, just in case I would find 3 blackjacks dealt to me.”
Space Jack is one of eight unique games at Slotland.com. It‘s a skill-based video game offering many exciting ways of gambling through various playing and betting strategies. The object of is to obtain a total of 21 points per hand without exceeding 21.
“My betting method may seem a little complicated, but it sure paid off this time around! Generally, this is how I decide where to place my $20 bet each round: if one of the hands dealt is a natural blackjack, the next round I place my $20 bet on that hand. If no natural blackjack is dealt, I place my $20 bet on the hand which was closest to 21. If there is a tie (for instance, I get 19 on two different hands), I select the non-tying hand for my maximum bet. If I get a natural blackjack on two hands (and this has happened to me more than once!), then I bet my $20 on the non-blackjack hand the next round. As you can imagine, this method keeps my mind occupied!”
After watching his stake drop from $200 down to $20, TNVOLS mind was more occupied by the household chores he’d been avoiding than on the game he was about to win. He wasn’t fully concentrating when he selected his bets, clicked the deal button, and watched the cards fall: Ace – Ace – King fall on the first round, then Queen – Ten – Ace on the second.
“I did plenty of blinking! But across the top of the screen the message was really there – I had just won $66,355 and in my account I saw $66,375!”
“That’s what makes playing slots so much fun,” said Hannah Morante at Slotland.com. “Whether you stick to a regular pattern or simply trust the luck of the draw, you just never know when you’re going to hit!”
