The jackpot winner, a practical-minded accountant, says rather than blow the win on holidays and luxuries he’ll do the fiscally responsible thing and use the quarter million dollar jackpot to pay off his mortgage.
The latest winner, Dereck O., is known as MRBIG on the site and has been playing at WinADay for about a year. Until now he’s divided his playing time between four favourite slot machines: Vegas Mania, Leprechaun Luck, Fair Tycoon and Tropical Treat. Although he said it was hard to pick an absolute favourite from the lot, Vegas Mania will obviously have a special place in his heart after his fantastic luck on that game.
“Our progressive jackpot can be won anytime on any of our slots games,” said Michael Hilary, manager of the no download casino. “But this is the fourth time we’ve had a six-figure jackpot winner on the Vegas Mania slot machine! That’s more than any other game. Reel De Luxe and Wheeler Dealer – one of the games we opened with three years ago – have each had two big jackpot wins. Vegas Mania is the only one to have had four!”
The WinADay jackpot is usually won around the $150,000 mark but has gone much higher several times in the casino’s first three years. In March 2010 it rose to a record $224,420 before it was won by a retired widower. Since all the slots at WinADay contribute to one big progressive jackpot, and since the casino has been particularly busy due to some generous birthday promotions recently, it quickly rose to the record high level after a $167,648 in May.
Making its debut just over a year ago, Vegas Mania is a five-reel, 21 pay line slot machine where players get up to fifteen free spins, Wild symbols increase the chance of winning and Double Wilds double winnings. Vegas Mania is a high stakes slot machine with a total maximum bet of $84 per spin. Players can win up to 3000 times the betted amount.
Coincidently, it’s also the Game of the Month for July so players can get a chance to win up to $250 in a month-end draw just by playing it. At the end of the year one 2011 Game of the Month player will win a dream vacation prize. (
MRBIG said he’s looking forward to playing the new America-themed “Grand Liberty” slot machine when it launches just after Independence Day.
