PPC Aruba satellite champions receive $5000 prize packages that include $2400 buy-in to the Main Event (November 4th – 7th) and accommodation on Palm Beach at the Hilton or Hyatt Resort. Both packages also include travel expenses, one $200 tournament buy-in and one $300 buy-in, as well as Intertops or Juicy Stakes gear and dinner and a night out with the Intertops or Juicy Stakes team.

“There will be lots of tournaments and lots of opportunities to win some cash in Aruba,” said Intertops’ Poker Manager.  “But there will also be plenty of time for fun in the sun on a beautiful tropical island!”

Vincent Fiorenza won the 2015 PPC Aruba Main Event taking home $106,047 of the $500,000 GTD prize pool. The tournament organisers also gave him a $5000 prize package for this year so he'll be returning to Aruba to defend his title.

After a $30,000 Winning Streak Player Eyes a Designer Bag She Could Never Afford Before

Do you splurge or save when you have a good night playing casino games?  While many winners say they’ll pay some bills or save for their children’s college tuition, a Lincoln Casino player who had a $30,000 winning streak the other night has something a little less practical in mind for her winnings.

A combination of clever betting, luck and some free spin multipliers all added up to a very successful evening for Teresa C, She won $30,000 in one session, hitting big on the Dragon Master, 20,000 Leagues and Eastern Dragon slot games.

“I think I’ll buy myself a designer bag -- one I could never afford!” the long-time player told her VIP player rep. “Then, believe it or not, I’m going to get a really nice coffee maker (so love my java). I guess I should pay down my debt, too. Most of the rest I'll save but I’ll keep some in my casino account. It's so much fun to play, and a great stress relief from my demanding career.”

This month Lincoln Casino is giving free spins on the Cool Bananas slot game from WGS.

Lincoln Casino has dozens of games from WGS and there are many that Teresa plays regularly, including Arctic Queen, The Last King of Egypt and Winter Wonderland. Dragon Master, where she won much of her $30K, is her favorite.

“I love, love, love the graphics and the bonus rounds are the best!" she explained.

“Teresa’s been playing with us for a long time,” said Ryan Wilson, the manager at Lincoln Casino.  “We all know her and we’re all really excited for her!”

Until the end of the month, wannabe winners opening a new account at Lincoln Casino will receive a 200% Welcome Bonus plus 50 free spins on the top rated Cool Bananas slot game (coupon code COOLSPINS).

Learn About Sharks -- and Collect Shark Day Bonuses

This Thursday is international Shark Awareness Day and in tribute to the incredible predators of the southern oceans, South Africa’s Thunderbolt Casino has published a shark information page to help create greater awareness and appreciation of these often misunderstood creatures. They're also giving free spins on some deep sea-themed slots in a series of Shark Day Casino Bonuses.

The purpose of Shark Awareness Day is to help people appreciate how magnificent – and endangered -- sharks are. The worldwide demand for shark-fin soup  and indiscriminate commercial fishing practices result in millions of sharks being killed every year – 11,000 every hour of every day.

“I’ve always been fascinated by sharks, especially the Great Whites in our southern oceans,” said Alisa, Thunderbolt’s casino manager. “I’ve gathered up some fascinating information about them – some things will really surprise you I think!  Did you know that Great White Sharks rarely attack people and when they do, it’s usually because they’ve mistaken a person for their favourite food, a Cape Fur Seal. Scientists estimate that after a big meal, a Great White Shark can last up to three months before needing another one!”

Alisa’s Shark Awareness page, which includes Shark Bonus details, is available at:

Thunderbolt Shark Day Casino Bonuses

Liberty Slots Player has $100,000 Winning Streak on Independence Day

One Liberty Slots Casino had a 4th of July he won't soon forget after a nearly $100,000 winning streak that day.   Adam S. deposited his usual $25 and ended the night with $97,000 in his account.

Adam has been playing at Liberty Slots a couple of times a week since 2013 but never had a win like he had last Saturdayon the Mile High slot game from WGS.

Adam made his usual $25 deposit and claimed a 100% match bonus to give him $50 to play with.

“That usually lasts me a couple of hours, which is what I’m looking for” he told a Liberty Slots customer service rep. “If I get a couple of hits I can stretch it out, maybe even over a couple of days, but for me it’s a relaxation thing”.

Video: Liberty Slots player wins $100K during Independence Day winning streak

200% bonus with 100 free spins on Funky Chicken slot from WGS available through July.

But this was not to be an ordinary Saturday evening. Playing close to the minimum bets, often as little as $0.20 per spin, Adam stretched his bank roll over a couple of hours. Then, about 11:30 pm, Lady Luck smiled and a $1.25 wager on Mile High delivered 5 pilots symbols across 3 separate pay-lines.  Combined with the Select-a-Play Passenger and Hostess bonus this resulted in three $6,400 pay-outs on the same spin – over $19,000 from a $1.25 bet.

At this point Adam decided to really fly high, pushing his bet ever upwards.  Less than 25 minutes later he was rewarded with free spins and a single pay-out of an additional $35,000.

As his winning streak continued, Adam hit major wins on Lucky Lady, Fat Cat and Shaaark! and closed off his session with a real balance of $97,000.

If you fancy a crack at a record, Liberty Slots is offering a 200% bonus plus 100 free spins on the barnyard-themed Funky Chicken slot. To claim this bonus, players must enter coupon code CHICKENSPINS when they make a deposit.

Liberty Slots has online slots and table games from Wager Gaming Technology including favorites like Amanda Panda. The mobile casino now has more than thirty of the best games from WGS including Cherry Blossoms and Cleopatra’s Pyramid.
