The Golden 8 progressive online slot at Slotland delivered a $163,476 jackpot last week to a player using the handle 'Yukon,' who has been gambling on the internet for only a year (see our Slotand jackpot tracker here).
The surprised player told Slotland management that he had never expected such a large win, although like everyone else he had always been hopeful and given thought to what a significant jackpot would mean to him.
"After all, that's why we play," said Yukon. "But, I honestly never really expected something like this to happen to me. Even when I saw it on my screen I could hardly believe it. It wasn't until the customer service representative from Slotland contacted me that it really started to sink in."
Yukon plans to use his winnings to pay down debt and go on holiday 'someplace sunny and warm'.
Slotland has revealed that over the past year it has paid out nearly $800,000 in progressive jackpot wins, with Yukon's win only the second on the Golden 8 slot. The internet casino's Treasure Box game has produced three winners over the past few years, and two players have struck it rich on the Jacks Or Better video poker slot game.
