Slotland Pays Out Record-breaking $799,309 in Jackpots and Over $430K More in Bonuses

Regulars feel a big win coming as progressive jackpot approaches $100K

2009 was a record year for jackpots and bonuses at, one of the world’s first and still most popular online slots sites.  A total of $799,309 was paid out in progressive jackpots last year and more than $68,500 was given to players as bonuses in year end draws. That's on top of nearly half a million dollars in deposit bonuses that were paid in 2009. With the current jackpot nearing $100,000, regulars at the casino are starting to feel that another big win could be just around the corner.

2009 saw a more than 10% increase in total jackpot payouts over 2008. Averaging $133,218 in 2009, individual jackpots were larger than the year before.  All games at Slotland are tied to the same jackpot and in 2009 the jackpots were won playing some of their most popular games: Heavy Metal, Mega Spin, Slotris, Jacks or Better and Treasure Box.

The largest jackpot in Slotland history, $200,111, was won in 2009 by a player known as FORGOMO playing the Heavy Metal slot machine. That beat the previous record set by TEXASTEASER who got lucky in 2008 playing the Treasure Box slot and won $195K.

Not everyone can win a jackpot but Slotland also paid out nearly half a million dollars in deposit bonuses to its players in 2009. 

As it has just done for 2009, Slotland will again do random year end draws for thousands more in bonus money in 2010. Each deposit is an entry (VIPs earn two entries per deposit).  The draw awards a top cash prize of $5000 and splits a further $13,250 between another 20 players. On top of that, $55,000 will again be awarded to the top 30 overall depositors. 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.  Slotland will soon launch new instant Flash versions, with enhanced full-screen graphics and improved sound effects, of three games: Jacks or Better, Treasure Box and Golden8.

Australian Lotto Millionaire Still Lives in Caravan

While some gamblers day dream about what they’ll do if they hit the jackpot, some can’t imagine changing anything.  Paul Cousins, an Australian Council worker who won $5 million on the Lotto, still lives in his caravan and has no plans of retiring from his job repairing potholes for the local shire, but he is enjoying the air conditioning in the new car he bought with his winnings.

"I bought a pack of ciggies, had a few beers and some Chinese takeaway and went into work like normal the next morning," said the frugal multi-millionaire, wearing a pair of thongs, Stubbies and a flannel shirt as he sat outside his caravan talking to The Sunday Telegraph.  "I'm just the same simple bloke."

The Australian lotto winner says his next “extravagance” will be a new bed.

Las Vegas Hotel Fire – Stratosphere Lucky This Time

Fire broke out on the ninth floor of one of the most famous hotel casinos on the Las Vegas strip recently.  The fire alarm went off for the Stratosphere Hotel fire at around 2:00 pm and the hotel went into a state of emergency.  It is believed that the fire was started by careless smoking.

Fortunately, the fire was contained to some towels found on the bathroom floor of one of the guestrooms, and was quickly put out by hotel staff. Using some quick thinking and improvising a little, security personnel filled a waste paper basket with water and put the flames out before fire officials arrived at the scene.

The floor was evacuated for approximately 45 minutes.

“The Fire was responsible for very light smoke on the ninth floor,” said Timothy R. Szymanski, the public education and information officer for Fire and Rescue in Las Vegas,  “But no other floors were affected.”
The fire caused about $250 in damages but, fortunately, no one was injured.

$109K WinADay Jackpot Hit Just 3 Weeks After Last Win

Australian wins record-breaking jackpot playing Gold Boom slot machine

Just three weeks after its last six-figure progressive jackpot winner,’s progressive jackpot has just been hit again. Night before New Year’s, Brenda D. in Australia won $109,962 playing the Gold Boom slot machine at the unique 3D casino.

The previous jackpot winner set a record a few weeks before Christmas for the largest jackpot ever won at the three-dimensional online casino, $198,180. But this latest winner has set another record: shortest interval between jackpot wins. In the not-quite-two-years since the unique site launched, the jackpot has been won, on average, every three or four months. To be won twice in one month is extraordinary.

After the last win, the jackpot was reset to $30,000. When the 3D casino was just becoming known, it would take several months to climb to $100,000 but since the site has been so popular over the holidays it shot to six figures very quickly this time.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes when the game said that I’d won,” said Brenda D. who only started playing online slot games at last summer.  “I had to get my sister to come over and look at my screen and tell me it was true before I could believe it!”

The excited winner said that she plans to treat her whole family to a cruise in the spring.

“I’ve always enjoyed speaking with players,” said Michael Hilary,’s new manager.  “But this is the first time I’ve contacted someone to confirm that they’d won a massive jackpot. It would be great to do it again in another three weeks!”

With symbols that hearken back to gold rush days, Gold Boom is a 9-wheel, 6-pay line slot machine that offers free bonus spins, a progressive jackpot, and awesome payouts. Players can win Bonus Spins that can pay off big time.  Whenever three Diamond symbols appear on a wagered pay line, one Diamond is added to the Bonus Spin Counter. When 3 bonus spin diamonds have been collected, the player wins three Bonus Spins.  The amount won on those spins is based on the amount bet on the last normal spin, so strategic players will want to keep an eye on the Bonus Spin Counter when deciding on their wagers.

Three Gold symbols on a wagered payline with max bet wins the progressive jackpot.

WinADay is an instant play Flash casino so there is nothing to download or install before enjoying the games. The new Monday Madness casino bonus adds 10% to deposits made on Mondays. All of the slots games at are tied to the WinADay progressive jackpot.
