December 8, 2011 : ONLINE CASINO ENSURES THIS DAD HAS A MERRY CHRISTMAS
$207,241 win on the slots should give HenryW plenty of good cheer.
UK online punter and slots fan HenryW has been assured of a merry Christmas this year following a $207,241 jackpot hit on the Treasure Box progressive at online casino Slotland.com.
One of the oldest but most popular machines on Slotland's proprietary inventory, Treasure Box has produced four 6-figure jackpot wins during its rewarding history, a casino spokesman revealed this week.
HenryW intends buying a new car with his windfall, and says he plans to spoil his children more than usual this Christmas.
He decided to try his luck at Slotland again after a break from gambling.
“I’d been taking a break from gambling like I do every once in awhile,” said the big winner. “But then I read about this new Fruitmania slot machine, so I had to try that. And when I saw that jackpot go so long I thought ‘someone had to win it soon and it might as well be me!'
"'Course I never really thought it would be me but you never know, do you?”
Although it was the new Fruitmania that drew him back, Henry ended up playing his old favourites as well…and Treasure Box was among them.
The game is an old-style 3-reel, 4 pay-line slot with a unique bonus fund, the “Treasury”, which increases whenever a Wild symbol is hit. The Treasury is won by spinning the number combination shown below the pay lines. Three Wilds in one line, which is what Henry hit, wins the progressive jackpot.
“I was so pre-occupied with getting the right combination to win the Treasury that I forgot all about that big jackpot waiting to be won – until all of a sudden I hit it," Henry recalls.
