$163,476 Jackpot Won on 'Golden 8' Slot Machine at Slotland

Interval between jackpots a little longer than usual, but well worth waiting for

Slotland - slot machines and video poker, progressive jackpot winnerAfter tantalizing players for several weeks, the progressive jackpot at Slotland.com has been hit again for $163,476. A player known as "YUKON", who has only been playing at Slotland a little over a year, won the jackpot playing one of the popular casino's oldest and most popular slot machines, the Golden 8. Normally won every six to eight weeks, the last six-figure win was in early February. For several weeks many players at the all slots and video poker site had been expecting it to be won any minute.

Although the progressive jackpot is usually won by the time it reaches $150,000, the winner didn’t mind waiting just a little longer to receive significantly more.

"Of course you always hope you’re going to win a big one someday. After all, that’s why we play!" said the winner. "But I honestly never really expected something like this to happen to me! Even when I saw it on my screen I could hardly believe it! It wasn’t until the Customer Service Rep at Slotland contacted me that it really started to sink in."

YUKON plans to pay off some debts with his winnings and to go someplace sunny and warm for a holiday.

Last year Slotland paid out nearly $800,000 in progressive jackpot wins. This is the second major jackpot win on the Golden 8 slot. Treasure Box has produced three big jackpot winners in the last couple of years, and two players have struck it rich playing the Jacks or Better video poker slot game.

"I don’t waste my money trying to win million dollar jackpots at other sites," said one Slotland player. "The reason some of those are so big is that they are rarely, if ever, actually won. But Slotland has a big winner every few weeks, it seems, so I feel like I actually have a chance to win here. "

Slotland.com currently features 15 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Four of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All of Slotland’s slot machines give players the option of placing a maximum bet for a chance at the progressive jackpot. They’re all instant play casino games with nothing to download or install. Some are now available in Flash format and fully compatible with iPhones.

The jackpot at Slotland is currently over $58,000. Meanwhile at Slotland’s sister casino, WinADay.com, the jackpot was last won at the end of March for a record-breaking $224,420 and is currently over $180,000.

Diceland Online Casino Re-born with Its Own Alice in Diceland

The emphasis is on fun in the light-hearted new online casino

diceland-160-1.jpgThe jaberwockiest online casino this side of the looking glass, DicelandOnline.com, is re-born with a whimsical Alice in Wonderland theme. Diceland Online looks and feels like no other, and is designed to appeal to a growing niche market of new-generation players looking for a little more wow and a lot more fun.

Following the opening of Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton’s jaw-dropping vision of the Lewis Carroll classic in movie theatres across the world, DicelandOnline.com is launching with favorite casino games including Blackjack, Roulette, Keno, Video Slots, Classic Slots, Video Poker and more. Hosted by its own animated Alice, the casino offers exciting progressive jackpots, a slew of special promotions and bonuses, and table limits for every bankroll.

Despite the cartoon Cheshire Cats and Mad Hatters, DicelandOnline.com is a full-service online casino with special incentives like the $9999 Welcome Bonus to appeal to high rolling hatters and hares. It provides a 100% bonus up to $1000 on each of the first ten deposits. There will be specialty bonuses where players will compete for vacations, vehicles, electronics and more. For deposits made using Neteller or Moneybookers there is a special 250% match bonus up to $2000.

The colorful Wonderland graphics throughout the site are just part of a total re-creation of the DicelandOnline.com brand.

“We acknowledge the payment problems some of our players and affiliates experienced last fall,” said Josh Cartu, CEO of RomeCasino.com which operates the new DicelandOnline. “Rest-assured, we wouldn’t be re-launching this brand using the same Topgame software if we weren’t 110% satisfied that the issues they had last year are resolved. We’ve been back to quick processing and hassle-free withdrawals for months now.”

On its decision to welcome Rome Partners (the affiliate program for DicelandOnline and RomeCasino) back as Silver Sponsors, Steven Corfman of the GPWA said, “As far as I've seen they're very interested in operating responsibly and I'm not aware of specific issues that are open from the problems they had last year. And from a conversation I had with their CEO they seem to be taking an affiliate-friendly route with respect to treatment of funds confiscated by payment processors (as opposed to some other sites recently that are viewing those problems the same way as a chargeback).”

“We’ve really grown and learned since we originally launched this brand, and all our latest thinking as well as feedback from players and affiliates has gone into creating this one-of-a-kind online casino,” said Jodi Nafte, Affiliate Manager. “We made it through our growing pains and are ready to shake up the online casino world with this bold new concept.”
