UK Man Hits $207,241 Online Slots JackpotDecember 9, 2011 1:59 pm
A lucky online punter from the UK is looking forward to a merrier than usual Christmas this year, after hitting the $207,241 jackpot at online casino Slotland.com.
Last weekend, Henry W. said he had been taking a few weeks break from playing the slots when he received a Slotland player e-newsletter saying that the burgeoning jackpot was now overdue for a payout. In addition, the UK man said a new slots machine introduced at Slotland caught his attention, and as he explains:
“I’d been taking a break from gambling like I do every once in awhile. But then I saw 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.”
Although it was the Fruitmania slot that initially drew him back, he later turned his attention to playing his old favourite slots again, including Treasure Box.
Treasure Box is a 3-reel, 4 pay-line slot, which enables the player to hold the reels after each spin. The “Treasury” is then won by spinning the number combination shown below the pay lines and as Henry W explains:
“I was so pre-occupied with getting the right combination to win that Treasury that I forgot all about that big jackpot waiting to be won – until all of a sudden I won it. Wow – what a feeling!”
Hitting the massive $207,241 jackpot couldn’t have come at a more festive time of the year, and the jubilant father said he was now looking forward to spoiling his children more than usual over the Christmas period. He said he would also buy himself a new car as his current one hadn’t been too reliable of late.
