Genting Sponsors Poker Dome at Poker in the Park

Genting Casinos, through their flagship London card rooms the Palm Beach and Bluff @ The Mint, will be sponsoring one of the Poker Domes at Poker in the Park in London’s Hanover Square on 2nd and 3rd September.
Poker in the Park is Europe’s biggest free poker festival which, as well as offering free poker lectures and tuition, music and entertainment, will be running live sit and go’s around the clock in two giant Poker Domes. Last year, the domes proved massively popular, with players coming from all over the country and queuing around the block to get a piece of the action.

The Palm Beach, situated in nearby Mayfair, has become the poker destination for London in recent years and a hub of the poker community. Over in South Kensington, meanwhile, Bluff @ The Mint offers great value cash games and tournaments around the clock.

Festival organiser Michael Caselli said, “The Palm Beach is a name that’s synonymous with the London poker scene and so we’re thrilled to have them on board at Poker in the Park. It’s going to be a really fun environment with lots and lots of live poker.”

London Poker Manager at Genting, Simon Tomsett, added: “It’s always been very important to Genting to support the game of poker wherever and whenever we can, and so we’re delighted to be involved with a great event like Poker in the Park which gives us the chance to get behind the game on a real grassroots level.”

WinADay Player Uses $140,461 Jackpot to Fulfill Dream of Opening Flower Shop

A $140K win last week at no download casino is making a wish come true for a player who’s always dreamed of having her own flower shop. Lizzie J won $140,461 on August 3rd playing the game-show-inspired Win A Fortune slot machine.

The jackpot winner, known as SWEETGAL on the site, says the first thing she’ll do is pay off her credit card debt and then she’ll make a personal dream come true.

“I’ve always dreamt of opening my own flower shop,” said the winner. “I never really thought it would be possible but now it is! I still can’t believe it!”

The win was announced yesterday on WinADay’s Facebook page and congratulatory messages from fellow players have started pouring in: “Congrats” “Wow, I can only imagine…” “Way to go SWEETGAL”

WinADay’s progressive jackpot can be won on any of its slots games but this is the first major jackpot win on Win A Fortune which only launched last fall. Win a Fortune brings the thrills of America’s favourite television game show to an exciting new one-of-a-kind slot machine. It has a nail-biting double-or-nothing Double Bonus Round and a Fortune Wheel that gives additional Wild symbols with up to 5x multipliers.

Although she’s been playing at WinADay since shortly after the instant play casino first opened, Lizzie said she hasn’t really played Win a Fortune very much. She said her favorite casino games are actually the new Fruitful 7s and Vegas Mania with Pyramid Plunder close behind.

Unlike some of the more elaborate one-of-a-kind games that WinADay has been creating lately, Fruitful 7s is a back-to-basics traditional pub-style online slot machine. Vegas Mania has all the flashing lights and exciting sounds of The Strip and Egyptian-themed Pyramid Plunder has an elaborate bonus game built into it.

The progressive jackpot was reset to $50,000 following this win and is already over $64,000. WinADay’s sister site,, paid out a $128K jackpot in June and the jackpot there is already approaching $100,000 again.
