2 April 2013 (London, UK) – Slotland.com, one of the world’s oldest and most popular online slots sites, has just paid out its largest progressive jackpot ever. Sinclair U. won a record-breaking $266,800 earlier this month playing the Carnival slots game.
“I’ve been playing at Slotland Casino for more than five years,” said the winner. “I win enough to keep it fun – never dreamed I’d have a windfall like this!”
The father of three said he plans to pay off his bills and put some money aside for his children’s education.
“I think once I’ve done the sensible stuff there will still be enough for a great vacation. I hope to take the family to Europe.”
This is the first jackpot win on the new Carnival game which only came online last summer. Reminiscent of country fairs of days gone by, it’s a cheerful and bright slots game nostalgically decorated with bumper cars, carousels, candy, donuts and balloons. The Shooting Gallery bonus game awards free spins, expanding Wilds and bet multipliers.
“Since it came out I’ve been playing Turbo GT a lot. I seem to trigger a lot of free spins on that game! I also play Tikal Treasure a lot, and Treasure Box has been a favorite for years. But I like to take advantage of having 28 games to choose from so I and play them all.”
Slotland’s jackpot accumulates very quickly, since most of the popular online casino’s slots games contribute to it. Since it’s normally won quite frequently it has seldom gone over $150,000.
Previously, the largest jackpots ever were in March 2009 when a British dad won just over $200,000 playing Heavy Metal and in November 2011 when an American player won $207K playing Treasure Box.
“We had a couple of jackpot winners in a row last spring,” said Slotland Manager Michael Hilary, “But since it hasn’t been won since then it had time to get to this record-breaking level. Normally our jackpot is hit every couple of months — I doubt we’ll have to wait so long for our next big winner.”
