Last week, a Canadian player from Vancouver was feeling lucky while playing online slots at Slotland, as he was hitting several wins, which according to him was enough to keep the game interesting. True enough his winning streak held on during the night, which allowed him to play with “Tikal Treasure” for a few hours and land on the progressive jackpot amounting to $169,072.
The big win did not come as a surprise to Slotland Casino Manager Michael Hilary, commenting that the pooled prizes at Tikal Treasure and other Slotland titles have a track record of hits at an average payout of CA$175,000 per win, four or five times each year. He explained that this is probably the reason why Slotland’s progressive jackpots never reach the millionth mark, even if all the online casino’s progressive slots are linked to a single prize pool. He added, “We’ve had a lot of jackpot winners who, believe me, were all quite happy to walk away with a couple hundred thousand!”
The winner from Vancouver said he likes playing at Slotland casino because there are always new additions that just get better and better. The Canadian, who is himself an IT professional, plans to use the money to pay off his credit cards, spend some for shopping and in hitting the slots again, since he feels luck is still on his side.
“Tikal Treasure” is a Mayan-themed 5-reel, 25-payline online slot, featuring an interactive treasure hunt adventure. Players will have to collect five Mayan balls that randomly appear across the reels, as this will activate the interactive bonus game. The special feature gives bonus players five attempts at destroying blocks to reveal at least three similar icons that form winning combinations.
