Online slots and video poker pioneer Slotland.com has awarded one lucky player with $1,900 off a deposit of $100 courtesy of the Treasure Box slot game.
Treasure Box is a three-reel skill-based slot machine that allows players to increase their chances of winning by retaining reels for their next spin just like video poker devotees hold their best cards.
Online player ‘SHLOMIC' was having a boring day at work with nothing going well. So, he locked himself in his office, logged on to Slotland.com and started playing his favourite game, Treasure Box. After beginning with small bets, he then increased his bet to the maximum after a streak of small wins.
"I'll share a secret with you," said ‘SHLOMIC'.
"After many hours of play, I believe that most games work in streaks. Yes, I know, it doesn’t make a lot of mathematical sense but it works for me.
"At first I found myself loosing most of my bets and so I slowly reduced my bets, down to two dollars."
Slotland.com features 13 slot machines and three video poker games and gives players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot, which currently stands at over $57,000. In addition, four of its most popular slot titles alongside two video poker games are also available through mobile telephones and personal digital assistant (PDA) units.
"But, then something changed and it felt like I was entering a winning streak," said the lucky winner.
"So, I tried my theory and maxed my bet up to eight dollars. And who would have believed it, it worked. Starting with a nice 777 that gave me $200 plus the treasure box, where I had about $600 at this stage. And then came the big win, triple one, same colour multiplied on all four lines giving me $1,200."
In addition to the win for ‘SHLOMIC', Slotland.com has awarded half a dozen six-figure payouts since last March, two courtesy of Treasure Box. Most recently, a Canadian player won $195,083 on the slot that, at the time, was the biggest progressive jackpot Slotland.com had ever presented.
Slotland.com revealed that the lucky player's winnings were in his bank account within days while he also took home $1,000 for sharing his story on its member newsletter.
