April 4, 2005 (London, UK) – InterCasino.com (www.intercasino.com) has announced that its latest monster Rags to Riches Progressive Jackpot has toppled straight into the lap of Danish player Gesualdo. The 30 year-old Dane plundered the ever-popular machine for $182,915 with an investment of only $14.
Gesualdo is a roulette aficionado, but was attracted to InterCasino’s famous ‘Rags to Riches’ Machine because of its reputation for making so many players exceedingly wealthy. Finding himself ahead after one of his usual roulette sessions, he decided to invest a little more and try his hand at the spinning reels. Fourteen spins later Gesualdo had cracked the jackpot.
The Rags to Riches Machine has been paying out dizzyingly big jackpots on a regular basis, reinforcing InterCasino’s position at the forefront of online gaming. The casino was recently awarded the title ‘Best Online Casino’ for the fourth consecutive year by Gambling Online Magazine, while Strictly Slots Magazine named it ‘Best Online Casino for Slots’.
Gesualdo’s win, the second ‘Rags to Riches’ MEGA-Jackpot win by a Danish player so far this year, reflects the casino’s ever-expanding worldwide customer-base, as well as the increasing popularity of online gaming throughout Europe; Scandinavia, it seems, has been particularly bitten by the bug.
“It was kinda crazy,” laughs Gesualdo. “I’d been checking out the casino, thought it was great, had a little game here and there… And then I won! I didn’t dare turn the computer off the whole night in case it turned out not to be true.” Guesaldo, who cites this as his first real big win, says some of the money will go toward buying a house, and the rest will be for having a very nice summer.’ You can’t say fairer than that.
InterCasino.com Manager Ryan Hartley told us: ‘We’re proud of our diverse customer-base; we can to appeal to everyone from countries all around the world and we congratulate Gesualdo on his win. The ‘Rags to Riches’ story just keeps rolling – it’s amazing!’
