First First Big Jackpot Winner on WinADay's New Slot 21 Slot Machine Hits $158K Jackpot

First major jackpot win for new game that combines slots and Blackjack

wad-slot21jackpot-160.jpgA WinADayCasino.com player has won a $158,778 progressive jackpot playing one of the newest games at the unusual online slots and video poker site. Marie S. won the massive jackpot playing the Slot 21, a slots game which a blackjack-style bonus game. All slots games at WinADay are tied to the same progressive jackpot but this is the first major jackpot winner on the relatively new game.

“Whenever our progressive jackpot goes over $100,000 it feels like it could be hit any day,” said WinADayCasino.com manager Michael Hilary. “When it gets to $150,000 we’re really on the edge of our seats!”

“You can only imagine how thrilled I was when I was happily spinning away; winning some and also losing some and the next thing I knew I hit the big one,” said the winner who has been playing at WinADayCasino.com almost two years. “Oh my, did I almost faint! I thought, this couldn't be happening to me!”

“Now comes the time to think what I will do with my win. It’s not as easy as it seems and I am not one to make quick decisions but I sure will enjoy every penny of this sweet win.”

The new Slot 21 has been incredibly popular with players since it was launched last May. The jackpot winner says it quickly became a personal favourite but it’s obviously now her all time favourite!

"When Slot 21 was released, I found it rather interesting. The design reminded me of some classic machine one would find in a land-based casino and the Blackjack bonus game looked fun so I was more than happy to give it a try. Although Win A Day has so many cool games to chose from, I must say it soon became one of my favourites.”

The new Slot 21 game at WinADayCasino.com online casino is a combination of two casino favourites, slot machines and blackjack. First and foremost, it’s a kitschy, retro, arcade-style slot machine reminiscent of the old strip in Las Vegas. But it also has two bonus card games built into it.

When the Red & Black scatter symbol appears on the right most reel, players have the option of playing the Red & Black Bonus Game where they can double the winnings of their last spin.

A second bonus game within this new slot machine is inspired by Blackjack. By collecting Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces on the slot machine reels players earn “21 Cash” which can then be used to play a hand of blackjack. When players draw cards that come closer to 21 than the bank’s hand, without going over, their wager is doubled. When a player spins five “crown” symbols like Marie S. did, they win the progressive jackpot.

Last month WinADayCasino.com added its 19th new one-of-a-kind game. The Win A Fortune slots game brings the thrills of America’s favourite television game show to an exciting new slot machine and has a nail-biting double-or-nothing Double Bonus Round. Like all games at WinADayCasino.com, Win a Fortune is an instant-play casino game so there’s no downloading or installation required.

This month WinADay’s Game of the Month is the Reel Deluxe, a slot machine dedicated to shoppers. Everyone that plays it this month is automatically entered in a draw for $500 in prize money and a chance to win a Dell Studio 15 laptop in a year-end draw.

The jackpot was reset to $30,000 after this win and has been increasing quickly since then.
