Canadian Wins $107,064 Slotland Jackpot Playing ‘Wild Heart’ Video Poker
Win comes only weeks after slots and video poker site’s last big jackpot
27 September 2010 (London, UK) – The last big winner at Slotland.com has barely had time to spend their $147,711 win and the popular slots and video site’s progressive jackpot has already been hit again. A Canadian player has just won $107,064 playing the Wild Heart video poker game. Wild Heart is one of six slot machines and video poker games now available with enhanced graphics and sound effects.
The Slotland progressive jackpot tends to be won every six to eight weeks for an average of about $150,000. The latest win is less than usual but comes only five weeks after the last win.
“I know some jackpots go years or months without a win, but ours is won quite frequently,” said Slotland.com Manager Michael Hilary. “We don’t usually have to wait very long between wins but we were pretty surprised to have another big jackpot winner again so soon!”
All of the slots at Slotland are tied to the same jackpot. Every time a player plays max bet on any of these games, some of the wager goes into the progressive jackpot pool. Hitting the right combination with a max bet placed wins the progressive jackpot. To win the jackpot on Wild Heart WINNIPEGLEG got a Royal Flush on all three lines when he had a max bet on each line.
“Believe me, I’ve often daydreamed about what I’d do if I won a jackpot,” said the winner. “Now that it’s happened I can't remember any of the wonderful things I wanted to do! I’ll probably donate some to a good cause and invest some of it. But I’m also going to buy a few treats for my wife and myself!”
Wild Heart, a multi-hand video poker game with an exotic jungle theme, is a unique variation of Double Joker video poker. It’s a triple play video poker game where players have a chance to win on several lines at a time. The object is to get the best possible five card poker hand on one or all three lines. There are three 54-card decks, each with two wild cards. The same cards are dealt to all three lines. Players can hold one or more cards and, on the next spin, receive up to five new cards on each line.
There have been many smaller jackpot wins on Wild Heart but this is the largest since May 2008 when a player won $88,000 on the popular video poker game.
Slotland.com currently features 18 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Four of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All of Slotland’s slot machines give players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot. They’re all instant play casino games with nothing to download or install. Many are now available in Flash format and fully compatible with iPhones.
The jackpot at Slotland was re-set to $50,000 after this win. The jackpot at Slotland’s sister casino, WinADayCasino.com, was also won last month for almost $100,000 and is already over that again.
