Slotland Jackpot Loosens Up, Produces Second Winner in a Month

$80,369 won playing Slotris within weeks of $169,923 win on Megaspin

Less than a month after their last big progressive jackpot winner, the Slotland jackpot has already been hit again. A player known as MARMOTLUV won $80,369 playing one of Slotland’s newer online slot machines, the Slotris.

“I used to love playing Tetris as a kid so I’ve enjoyed playing Slotris ever since it was added to Slotland,” said the excited winner. “I’ve won lots of smaller amounts over the years I’ve been playing at Slotland, but I never dreamed I’d actually win such a huge jackpot! The money is already in my bank account – but not for long!”

For years the Slotland jackpot was famous for being hit every six weeks or so, usually for between $100 and $150K. This isn’t the first time that the wins have happened more frequently than that though. Last fall there were three six-figure jackpots in a row so this latest win could be the part of a continuing loose jackpot trend.

Of course there’s no predicting when a jackpot will be won. Every time a player places a bet that qualifies for the progressive jackpot (a max bet is required in most games) part of their wager goes to the progressive jackpot pool. That pool keeps growing until someone hits the jackpot.

Since all 16 games at Slotland contribute to the same jackpot pool, it can grow very quickly. After a young couple won a $169,923 jackpot playing the new Megaspin game in July, the jackpot was reset to $50,000 and quickly rose to the $80K prize just won.

Slotris, a Tetris-like online slot machine that launched last year, is two games in one, both inspired by the popular game of falling-blocks considered by some to be the best video game ever. The wheels on the Slotris online slot machine spin the familiar multi-coloured cubes and the same squares fall into place on the grid of the adjacent bonus game puzzle -- just like the video game that has mesmerized millions for decades.

There are two ways to win Slotris. There’s a traditional three-wheel single payline slot line with spinning symbols – coloured blocks rather than cherries. When three matching symbols line up, the player wins. But the coloured boxes don’t just spin on the slot machine wheels. Afterward, the same symbols fall into place in the grid beside the slot machine. Players can win this bonus game by guiding the blocks into place. Every solid-colour line multiplies the player’s bet and ten lines wins the jackpot. currently features thirteen unique slot machines and three video poker games. Four of the most popular online slot machines and two video poker games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All of Slotland’s games give players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot.

In August Slotland will introduce another new slot machine. The “Reel Riot” is a single payline slot machine with a “Double Wild” bonus symbol and a special “hold” feature that strategic slots players will love.

The jackpot at Slotland is currently over $64,000. Meanwhile at Slotland’s 3D casino,, the jackpot is over $130,000 and many players believe it is overdue for a win.

3D Casino Jackpot Has Topped $100,000

Fourth Six-Figure Winner This Year Could Be at Any Moment

The progressive jackpot at 3D online casino is about to top $100,000. If it’s anything like the jackpot on its parent site,, that could mean it’s about due for a big win! However, with its animated casino staff and one-of-a-kind games, there really is no other online casino quite like, so it’s anyone’s guess just how high it will go.

This is the fourth time this year that the progressive jackpot has gone over $100,000. Last time, it was won shortly after it hit the magic six figure mark, but the other two times it kept climbing to $148K and $159K before it was won.

All of the slot machines and video poker games at 3D casino are tied to one large jackpot pool. The next big win could be on any of the games, but since two of the first three big jackpots were won playing the Wheeler Dealer, that slot machine is getting a reputation for being lucky.

“Some players think that the Wheeler Dealer must be lucky, since it’s already had two big jackpots. Others think it’s more likely the next win will be on any other game next time,” said Ondrej Tuma of “Technically, of course, as long as you’re making the required bet, you could win the progressive jackpot playing any of our games.”

WinADay’s biggest jackpot to date was won on the Wheeler Dealer. In January, Monica68 won €116,200 ($148,724) playing that nine reel, eight pay line slot machine.
