“There’s a bunch of guys that play a lot of our satellites,” said Intertops’ poker manager.  “Lots of rivalries. We’ve taken Tim O’Keefe out of the mix though – he’s a sponsored player now so he’ll be with us in Austria this summer and in the Caribbean this fall, but this time someone else can win the prize packages!”

Tim and other winners of previous online satellite tournaments have shared their poker adventures abroad on the Living the Dream poker blog (

Funky Chicken Slot Turns Player's $100 Deposit into $38,000 Bank Roll in just 30 Minutes

His wife may still be fuming, but a Liberty Slots player that had a great winning streak the other night is sure glad he chose to play the casino's popular Funky Chicken slot that night!  Michael B. got really lucky and turned a $100 deposit into a $38,000 bank roll in just half an hour.

Liberty Slots is so excited about Michael’s win that they’re offering everyone a Funky Chicken Casino Bonus.  Players can get 200% added to their next deposit and receive 100 free spins on the Funky Chicken slot by entering coupon code 'CHICKENSPINS' when they make a deposit. This offer is available until July 31, 2016.

“I’ve seen lots of players turn a small deposit into a huge bank roll,” said Liberty Slots manager, Mark Ramirez. “But they don’t often accumulate so much so quickly!”

The lucky player made his usual $100 deposit and then started out betting just $3.75 per spin. When he hit the free spin multiplier and suddenly had $1000 in his account, he felt confident and upped his bets to $12.50, then $25 and finally $200 per spin.

Liberty Slots has online slots and table games from Wager Gaming

Funky Chicken is 25 payline farm-themed slot game with comical barnyard animals and one angry farmer spinning on its five reels. Three Scatter symbols trigger 15 free spins with an up to 10X prize multiplier.

“Once you hit the free spin multiplier at that level on this game you're winning some serious money,” said Ramirez. “It took Michael all of 25 minutes to take his bank-roll from $1500 to $38,000, all from a $100 purchase! When we contacted Michael to congratulate him on his win he laughed and told us his wife was still angry at him, not because he won, but because she was sleeping when it happened and yelled so loudly when the wins started happening that he woke her up!”

Liberty Slots has online slots and table games from Wager Gaming Technology including favorites like Amanda Panda. The mobile casino now has more than thirty of the best games from WGS including Cherry Blossoms and Cleopatra’s Pyramid.
