Internet casino Slotland has announced that a punter won the casino's site-wide progressive jackpot for a large $223,167 cash prize.
The winner, named Samuel J., recalled his win, which took place while he was playing the Air Mail slot. The winner ended up hitting the jackpot and let out a huge scream, which caused his wife to fear that something had happened to him. Of course Samuel was just fine, although his life had been changed forever, as he had taken the second-largest progressive win in Slotland's history.
"I was in utter shock. It took me a few minutes before I started to scream!" Samuel said. "My wife came running into the room, frightened. She thought something had happened to me, until she saw the screen and started screaming with me. I wish I'd had a camera to film her reaction. It was priceless!"
"The rest of the family were of course extremely happy for us. We're a close-knit family and spend lots of time together, so this will go towards the family's needs, maybe a vacation. There's nothing better or more important I would like to do with the money."
"I wouldn't call it beginners luck since I've been playing at Slotland for a few years now, but it's definitely a big pot of luck! My absolute favorite game is Super Sevens, but I also enjoy Vegas Vibes and Ice Queen. I'm one of those who likes changing games often. In one session I can end up playing many of the games. I think everyone should change games if they feel the game is not hot."
