A UK based punter by the name of "HenryW" won $207,241 while playing the Treasure Box progressive slot machine at Slotland.
Treasure Box is one of the oldest slots at Slotland's casino. The game is very popular with punters as it has yielded four jackpots worth more than $100,000 in its playing history.
HenryW had decided to take a break from gambling for a while, but was drawn back by the luster of a new game. “I’d been taking a break from gambling like I do every once in awhile." HenryW said. “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?”
HenryW then went on to win the progressive jackpot by getting three wild symbols on the same payline. The jackpot winner recalled his moment of glory saying, “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. Wow – what a feeling!”
With his new winnings, HenryW says that he intends to buy a new car and lavish his children with many gifts at Christmas.
