1 April 2012 (London, UK) — Staff at Slotland, one of the oldest and most popular online video slots sites, are still shaking their heads over a recent jackpot winner’s plans for her six-figure win. Suzanne S., known as LOONIE on the site, told them in an email that she invested her prize money in real estate – on the moon.
The slots player, who hit a $147,312 jackpot playing Slotland’s popular Lucky Stars slot machine game, purchased a 500 acre parcel of land through the Lunar Registry, Earth’s leading lunar real estate agency, for $125,000.
“I couldn’t decide on the Sea of Tranquillity region or the Lunar Alps,” she said in her email. “Then I found this beautiful property in the Lake of Dreams area, near Michael Jackson crater. It was a lot of money but I knew I had to have it.”
The jackpot winner’s new lunar home-away-from-home is near the sites of two manned lunar missions and the magnificent le Monnier crater. The terrain is stunning and the property apparently has a phenomenal view of Earth.
“I’ve seen players spend their winnings on a dream vacation, or a fancy car,” said Slotland manager Michael Hilary. “But most winners are actually very practical. Most say they’ll pay bills, send their kids to school, save for retirement, things like that. Some buy property – but this is definitely a first!”
“I don’t care what anybody thinks,” said the excited winner. “It may seem crazy to some people but it’s just something I’ve always wanted to do and I’m doing it!”
Photos of the winner as well as maps and photos of Suzanne’s moon property are posted on Slotland’s Facebook page. There’s also a coupon code there so anyone curious about what moon property is like these days can pick up a $10 casino bonus while they’re having a peak.
Slotland, which celebrated its thirteenth birthday last fall, has 23 instant-play slots online. They’re all unique and none of them can be found at any other online casino. Six, however, are also available at mobile casino. Most slots games are tied to one progressive jackpot which is currently over $180,000.
