An IT professional from Canada tried his luck at Slotland’s latest progressive jackpot and won almost $170,000 playing it.
The Tikal Treasure slot game brought the Canadian player a prize of $169,072. According to a company press release, the progressive jackpot is triggered four or five times a year at the casino, with an average payout of $175,000.
“What good is a jackpot that never seems to be hit?!” asked Michael Hilary, manager of the online casino in Europe. “Maybe Slotland’s jackpot never gets to be millions of dollars, but that’s because it’s hit so often! We’ve had a lot of jackpot winners who, believe me, were all quite happy to walk away with a couple hundred thousand!”
All of the casino’s online slot games are tied to one progressive jackpot, but this is the first time it was hit playing Tikal Treasure.
Online slots bring huge prizes
The biggest jackpot awarded at Slotland was worth $266,800 and was won playing Carnival last spring. This year, a player won the first ever mobile casino jackpot, pocketing $159,357 playing Ice Queen mobile slot on his iPhone.
Since European gambling laws made online casinos legal in several countries, slot games have become very popular. Tikal Treasure is a 5-reel, 25-payline online slot game which takes players to the mystical temples of the ancient Mayans.
Asked about what he’s going to do with the money he just won, the Canadian player said: “I guess I’ll go shopping, pay off my credit cards. And I’ll probably hit the slots again – I’m feeling lucky, eh? Know what I mean?”
