Record-Breaking $200,111 Jackpot Win at Slotland

No mortage payment worries for progressive jackpot winner

Anticipated for weeks, the progressive jackpot at has just been hit for a record-breaking $200,111 (€150,980). A player at the all slots and video poker site, known as “FORGOMO”, hit the historical jackpot on the always-popular Heavy Metal slot machine.

Three More Players Advance to March Madness Blackjack Tournament Final

One of Last Week’s Final Four Victorious Again This Week

Three more victors in’s March Madness Blackjack Tournament advanced to the April 15th Championship after making it to the “final four” in Monday night’s qualifier. The fourth winner this Monday had already won his way to the final table by winning last week.
Lucky18’s “Mano a Mano” blackjack tournament is bringing out the best head to head combat every Monday night in March. Each week, 64 players compete with each other in hard fought head to head battles that narrow the field down to the final four.

Apparently one player wasn’t satisfied with his $500 win last Monday and his free bid to the $5,000 Championship on April 15th. ‘Boblipp’, one of last week’s winners, made it to the Championship again along with newcomers ‘Billoch’, ‘Mr_sm00th888’, and wily veteran ‘Jef’.

‘Boblipp’ wanted more and played aggressively through the entire tourney with a barrage of 500 chips. Coupled with the fortunate cards he was receiving he put the others on their heels and playing catch up.

In the semi-finals he faced off against ‘Billoch’ where he showed a more conservative style. They mocked each others bets into the middle rounds but then ‘Billoch’ upped the ante with a few big bets. ‘Boblipp’ followed suit but continued to get the cards. ‘Billoch’ was forced to double in the final round with a 14, but pulled a Jack to bust. ‘Boblipp’ was off to the finals again.

In the fifteenth and final round, ‘Smooth’ (3150 chips) and ‘Boblipp’ (2500 chips) both laid a max bet of 1000 chips. ‘Boblipp’ drew a 10 and doubles to a good-looking 19 against the dealer up card, 7. But, ‘Smooth’ pulled a slick Blackjack A/J taking him to a 4650 chip count and a sure win because ‘Bob’s’ double will only get him to 4500. ‘Smooth’ won $500 and a FREE BID to the $5,000 Championship on April 15th.

By far the most popular format in the Blackjack Tournament network, players find the “Mano a Mano” or head-to-head competition very fast paced and exciting. The final four players in each Monday night tournament this month win free entry to the final “Mano a Mano” Championship on Wednesday, April 15th. Weekly winners will receive $500 with $250 going to the second place player, $150 to the third and $100 to the fourth place player. Twenty-eight players will win free seats at the April 15th “Big Dance” Championship. (Buy-in that night is $55.) The first place player will win $2500. The second place prize will be $1500 with $500 for third and fourth place. Tournament details are available by clicking “Blackjack Tournaments” on the homepage.

Lucky 18 slot machines offer some of the biggest progressive jackpots currently available to US players including Aztec’s Millions (over $1,000,000) and Jackpot Pinatas (nearly $1.2 milliion).

New Back to Basics Single Payline Online Slot Machine More Popular Than Expected

Easy to Play Slot-O-Matic is Instant Favourite

After the huge instant success of the new Slot-O-Matic slot machine at their 3D casino,, online slots pioneer Slotland has discovered that while many players are attracted to elaborate new games, there is still quite an appetite for the simple pleasures of basic, uncomplicated games.

From the week it launched, Slot-O-Matic has been the most popular game in the collection of six amazing slot machines and video poker games available in the 3D games lobby at the new In its first week, Slot-O-Matic was played 30% more than the next most popular game on the site, Wheeler Dealer video poker.

Most players have a favourite slot machine that they spend at least some time on pretty well every session. Most also like to take a break and try their luck on another game. Since its launch, most players have been spending at least part of their time on the new Slot-O-Matic. It’s become the favourite of many players. Many other players seem to find it a nice break from the more complex multi-payline games.

Slot-O-Matic’s symbols, music, speed and graphic design are reminiscent of old-school gaming – but with a contemporary 3D casino twist.

“In our company we are always discussing ideas for new games,” said Ondrej Tuma from WinADay/Slotland headquarters. “Our lead programmer came up with the idea that we should design a simple slot machine, one that would evoke the 80’s and the first computer games but still be in keeping with WinADay’s contemporary style. We didn’t really have any empirical data showing that people wanted to go back to the basics, just a hunch.”

“We developed this machine very quickly,” recalls Tuma. “From the first idea to launch was only one month. Then, overnight, it became the most played machine at WinADay Casino. Almost every player has tried this new slot machine at least once.”

Many slots players like to build up their bankrolls playing single payline games before moving to multiple payline games. Single payline slots are great when you want to stretch out your playing for an evening, or even if you just want to save money for an hour or so but still have a chance to win.

“The added feature of the fourth reel was a great idea. I love getting one more chance to win!” said WinADay and Slotland regular, TULSATWISTERS2. “Imagine my surprise when what looked like a losing spin turned into a winning spin because of that fourth reel.”

The new Slot-O-Matic is one of six instant-play, no download games at Like all games on the site, it is tied to the progressive jackpot which is currently almost $150,000. This jackpot is separate from the progressive jackpot at which is nearing $200,000.

Slotland Player Declares Herself Next Jackpot Winner, Advises Others to Quit Playing

Two Progressive Jackpots Near Record Levels of Over $179K and Over $140K

The progressive jackpots at and its sister site, 3D casino, are at record levels and overdue for a hit. But a player known as LUCKYLADY has announced that she will be the ultimate winner and that all others should quit trying to win either the $179K jackpot at or the $140K jackpot at

“I had a dream last night,” the player explained to a customer service representative. “I saw it clear as day – I was playing my favourite slot machine, the Treasure Box, when suddenly the screen said I’d won the jackpot, over $180,000.”

The player is so convinced she’s going to hit the jackpot that she advises other players to quit trying.

“They can keep playing but all they’re going to do is increase the progressive jackpot that I’m going to win,” she said. “I’m telling you, I know I’m going to win!!!”

Each time a player increases their bet to play the progressive, part of their wager goes into a huge progressive jackpot pool. With many players playing many different games, all contributing to the same jackpot, the prize can increase very quickly. Slotland’s jackpot is currently going up about $1000 a day.

“I don’t know if this player’s dream will come true or not,” said Ondrej Tuma of “But I think that part of the fun of casino games – and perhaps the only way to win – is believing that you will win.”

The Slotland jackpot is available on all 16 slot machines at and is currently over $179,000. Slotland’s games, which are not available at any other online casino, include such favourites as the Treasure Box, the Booster and the new Megaspin. The jackpot is separate from the Slotland jackpot and is available only on the six unique games at the 3D casino including the new Slot-O-Matic.
