December 13, 2005 (London, UK) – Slotland.com – famous for their frequently hit progressive jackpots – recently had their ninth big jackpot winner this year. “ULLKNIGHT”, a regular player at Slotland.com for two years, won $111,976 after a reminder from her daughter.
“I’ve had some bad streaks, of course,” said the excited player, “I win often enough to keep it fun, and I even cashed out $1500 on a $100 deposit once, but this jackpot win is really something else.”
ULLKNIGHT says she actually thanks her daughter and her niece, who had come to spend the weekend with them, for this amazing win. The daughter had seen her mom playing the slots many times, but it was all new to her cousin who thought the graphics and sound effects in Slotland.com’s games were “pretty cool””
“When I explained that if I could get five symbols to line up, I could win over $100,000,” recounts Slotland.com’s latest big jackpot winner. “They just started jumping and screaming and laughing. I then had to explain that it was VERY unlikely to happen, but meanwhile maybe we could have some fun and maybe win a little something.”
When the girls lost interest twenty minutes later, Mom decided to try her luck another day.
A couple of weeks later, when she was driving her daughter to her cousin’s house for a sleepover, they chatted about the fun they’d had with Slotland.com.
“My daughter was teasing me about not winning the big jackpot,” said ULLKNIGHT. “I kind of chuckled that she remembered that night, and on the way home I thought I would give Slotland another try.”
When she got home, ULLKNIGHT deposited $200 and began to play.
“My cash balance had crept up to $300, so I was feeling pretty good about things. It could not have been more than an hour later that five symbols lined up across my machine and I was $111,000 richer! I could not believe my luck!”
“Lots of players win a little one day, lose a little another, but always enjoy playing,” said Hannah Morante of Slotland.com. “It’s great to see someone that enjoys our games so much win such a big jackpot. I hope she buys her daughter something nice for Christmas to thank her for reminding her to come back to her games.”
On average, progressive jackpots well over $100,000 are won every six weeks or so at Slotland.com.
Slotland.com launched its new slot machine games for mobile phones last month. Since the mobile games are connected to the online games’ jackpots, the next big winner could hit the jackpot playing on their phone or PDA in a queue, on the train, or just about anywhere.
