Slotland.com has reported another big win on its Megaspin progressive, with player NYNYman collecting a check for $169 923, the fruit of an online gambling session taken to pass the time whilst he was off work with suspected ‘flu.
MegaSpin is a single-payline slot machine game with two identical three-reel sets. Players start by spinning the larger reels at the bottom. When they spin a winning combination, they continue playing for free on the upper Mega Reels. Both winnings are multiplied if they win on the Mega Reels as well.
“I had tried Megaspin once or twice before, and I really love the simple layout and strategy. I especially love that each winning spin lets you spin the Mega Reels for the chance to multiply your guaranteed win,” said the winner, who added that within five minutes he had almost doubled his $200 deposit. His good fortune held, because less than an hour later, he hit the big jackpot.
“When I spun 3 Wild Stars I started jumping out of my chair, thinking I’d hit the Big One. I was actually only halfway to winning the jackpot. Now I had to spin the Mega Reels and get 3 more stars. Impossible, I knew, but I was hoping for a nice multiplier on the Mega Reels, at least, to make that $150 win even larger," he recalls.
“The first spin on the Mega Reels brought me a cherry, grapes and a star that gave me another chance to try to multiply my $150. Three more spins brought me three more losing combinations, but each time there was a star somewhere on the reels to buy me another chance.
“The next spin seemed to go in slow motion. I watched as the first reel stopped on a star and then the second reel stopped on another star. When third real also stopped on a star I realized I’d won $169 923 and I couldn’t stop shaking.”
The windfall will come in handy for the young married player and his wife, who are expecting their first child.
Slotland is celebrating the first birthday of subsidiary 3D online casino WinADay.com this week; the operation will shortly receive its next new game, which will be a video slot machine.
