Posted 3/4/11 : Online player hits $145 864 progressive jackpot on Lucky Ducts slot
Players at Slotland.com are starting to call the Lucky Ducts progressive slot ‘Old Faithful', it has so many times produced winners, but this week it delivered its first major jackpot. A player using the nickname CHACHANG added to the growing reputation of the game when he hit a $145 864 line and made it go ka-ching!
"I couldn't decide which game to play. They've got so many now," said Chachang. "I was switching from old favourites like Lucky Stars and Golden 8 and trying out some of the newer games too. I was switching around a bit until I ended up playing Lucky Ducts. It just seemed hot. It wasn't my favourite game – not until now anyway – but it was a dark, cold winter evening and it just reminded me of summer fun and swimming."
The winner, who has been a regular at Slotland since mid-2008, says he hasn't had much time to think about how he'll spend his winnings.
He added: "You daydream about all kinds of things you'd buy if you won, don't you? Maybe to start with I should stick with the ‘summertime' thing and take a holiday someplace nice and warm!"
Launched last summer, Lucky Ducts is a Flash-based, 5 reel, 19 pay line slots game with up to 50x multipliers and opportunities to win free spins. Its swimming pool theme reminds winter-weary players of the golden days of summer with rubber duckies, beach balls and toy fish spinning on its watery wheels. 3 Water Faucet symbols at a time raise the Bonus Reservoir one level and increase the win multiplier to x2, x5, x10, x25 and finally x50. Players get 6 free spins when the Bonus Reservoir reaches the top level and overflows.
