Track Chumba Casino's "Big Goreela" Jackpot

6 replies • Last post

Chumba Casino has a fairly new progressive game called Big Goreela that has a 3-tier jackpot system. The mini is 40x bet, major 1000x, and the Grand is a progressive that seeds at $30k.

The wins are random and can be won with as little as a 50-cent bet (and has been for a Grand jackpot of around $60k I believe). I've seen it climb as high as $133k, though.

Any way this can be tracked? Details regarding who won and bet size are often posted to their Facebook page.

FYI, Chumba is a rapidly-growing player in the US market due to their easy Paypal integration (made possible via loophole by presenting legal sweepstakes in the form of slots).

Any updates on this? I found the jackpot value is listed here in case that helps with a data source.

That seems like it could be a cool jackpot. Nice six-figure range. I've never heard of the game or developer though. Are they legit?

Chumba Casino is legit, though they've recently changed payout methods from PayPal to WorldPay and payouts have seemed crappy lately (especially on this highly-volatile Gorilla game). W/Paypal you could cashout and have your money within hours. WorldPay takes nearly a week. They use a "sweepstakes" model for legal reasons to remain legal for US laws.

Yeah, this particular jackpot seeds at $30k and goes up from there. It's currently at the highest its ever been I believe ($172k) and the fact you could win that at any size bet, all the way down to 50 cents, is pretty impressive. They announce winners and their bet size and its quite often won at $1 bet.

It's the first time I hear about Chumba casino. Nevertheless, I always find it very appealing when you can win a jackpot even with a minimum bet. Maybe it's finally time to play it?

Yes in fact we did look into this one but we weren't able to scrape the jackpot as the site blocked our server from accessing it. Maybe because it is not in the USA/Canada (only countries they accept customers from), or possibly because they block known server hosts and/or bots as opposed to real people. Anyway we gave up.

The "sweepstakes" thing is legal smoke and mirrors. It does not make them any more or less legal than any other casino that accepts Americans. At the end of the day you're buying sweepstakes coins and wagering them in the hope of converting back to real cash so it is clearly gambling, not that that makes it illegal anyway. I don't see the difference between doing that and using cryptocurrency or any other token that you acquire in exchange for cash. Their games are developed in house and as far as I could see they don't advertise any independent testing or certification for them, so your guess is as good as mine as to whether they are legit.
