Record-breaking $198K Win at 3D Casino

5th jackpot win at unusual three-dimensional slot machine site this year 

A $198,180 progressive jackpot win last week at was the unique 3D casino’s biggest jackpot win ever. The winner was playing the enchanting Heavenly Reels slot machine when she won the record-breaking jackpot.

“I’d been playing for awhile that night,” recalled the winner. “I had just about reached the limit I had set for myself and I was actually starting to day dream about things I had to do the next day, what I was going to make for dinner, when I couldn’t believe my eyes! I just stared at that huge number on my screen for what seemed like hours before I finally realized it was true. I’d won the jackpot!”

The winner has been a regular player at’s sister site,, and only recently tried the 3D casino for the first time when she read an article about it in the player newsletter.

“I generally stick to a few favourite games,” she said. “But sometimes I like to try something different and I’m sure glad I did that night!”

Heavenly Reels is a four pay line slot machine adorned with heavenly cherubs and with angel wings spinning on its wheels – so much fun it’s nearly sinful.

After the win, the jackpot was reset to $30,000. and there is actually no reason there couldn’t be another big win before Christmas to make another family’s celebrations a holiday to remember!

$87K Win is First Progressive Jackpot Won on New Reel Riot Slot Machine

All of the games at are tied to the same progressive jackpot. Although one other game, Treasure Box, has had several jackpot winners, this is the first time that the jackpot has been won on the new Reel Riot.

Reel Riot is our newest game,” explained Tuma, “And our newest game is usually the most popular. Since so many people have been playing Reel Riot we shouldn’t be surprised that the jackpot was hit on that game, I suppose. But really, the next win could be on any of our 15 games.”

The Reel Riot is a single payline slot machine with fantastic retro graphics that Slotland launched last summer. It has a “Double Wild” bonus symbol and a special “hold” feature for keeping any symbol for the next spin.
