December 10, 2008 (London, UK) — Just six weeks since the last big win, the progressive jackpot at Slotland.com has been hit again for six figures. The $110,125 win last week brings the total jackpot wins in 2008 to $896,405 ($700,360). Slotland's jackpot, available on all of the slots and video site's games, has been hit every 4 to 6 weeks since last summer. While the jackpots aren't the biggest on the Internet — usually $100,000 to $150,000 — they are hit so frequently that they are increasingly popular with online slots players.
Last week's big winner was a player known as ZONARIZ who won $110,125 playing one of Slotland's popular video poker games, Striking 7s. Striking 7s is a Romanesque variation of the popular Deuces Wild video poker game. While this is the seventh major jackpot this year at Slotland, it is the first one on Striking 7s. The last time the jackpot was hit on one of the sites three video poker games was in August when MSMIKEY won $108,060 playing the Jacks or Better game.
"This seems to be gaining momentum," said Slotland. "The more people hear about big jackpot wins, the more people that play our games. The jackpot goes up every time a player places a max bet, so more players means the jackpot is growing pretty fast these days!"
Slotland's last big win was six weeks to the day before this last win. "MINE0MMINE" won $134,253 playing the popular Golden 8 slot machine on October 23.
A $168K win on Booster in July, $88K on Wild Heart in May, $91K on the new Four Cast in April and — the largest win ever — $195K on Treasure Box in March, bring the total progressive jackpot wins for the year to nearly a million dollars (over seven hundred thousand Euros).
With the launch last month of its latest game, Megaspin, Slotland.com now features thirteen unique slot machines and three video poker games. Four of the most popular online slot machines and two video poker games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All of Slotland's games give players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot. All of the slots and video poker games on the mobile network are also tied to the same jackpot pools. Slotland is available in Spanish at Es.Slotland.com.
