InterCasino has been the host of an unprecedented flurry of jackpot activity as two players won progressive prizes worth US$180,770.68 and US$118,700.24 respectively in less than 36-hours. The two jackpots shattered any previous claims of back-to-back US$100K+ wins in an online casino.
The jackpots came on Rags to Riches and Spice Island Poker, both containing progressive prizes offered by Jackpot Mania (www.jackpotmania.com). Jackpot Mania brings land-based progressive action worth a minimum US$100,000 to the Internet in casinos such as InterCasino.
The first win occurred close to midnight on March 24 by ‘Barb’, a self-employed UFABET professional with years of online gaming experience. ‘Barb’ began her day with a US$100 random prize from InterCasino (www.intercasino.com) manager Ryan Hartley. Hartley appears in the casino under the handle ‘RyanH’ to award free promotional cash to players, amounting to thousands of dollars monthly.
By late afternoon, ‘Barb’ turned her US$100 into US$11,518.00, mainly thanks to a four-of-a-kind on a multi-player Let It Ride table. After a break from the casino, she would press her luck into the win of a lifetime, and a one-day total of over US$192,000.
“It was quite a day,” recalled ‘Barb’. “I started in the morning and I ran into (Casino Manager) Ryan Hartley. He gave me a free US$100, which I later used to hit the four-of-a-kind on Let it Ride. After my boyfriend finished playing a while, I went back on the computer. That is when I hit the Spice Island Poker Royal Flush for US$180,000+. I have been playing for a couple of years now, and I couldn’t be happier with InterCasino.”
The second major win came early in the morning on March 26, as ‘mgpg33’ hit a US$118,700.24 jackpot on Rags to Riches. ‘mgpg33’ had opened an InterCasino account just three weeks ago. The Rags to Riches progressive was also hit earlier this March as ‘ilkirby’, a waitress who plays at William Hill Casino (www.williamhillcasino.com), claimed US$193,012.00 on her birthday, March 14.
Other InterCasino US$100K jackpot winners for 2002 include ‘jwhite’, a US$227,653.20 winner on Spice Island Poker Jan 29., and ‘jas3516’, who claimed US$189,433.44 on Feb 2. on Rags to Riches, three hours after registering an account.
Ten US$100K+ jackpots were claimed in 2001. In total, more than US$5.5 million was awarded on over 17,000 Jackpot Mania wins in 2001 – averaging 47+ winners daily. Big winners at InterCasino in 2001 include ‘jwhite8’, ‘moosed’ (US$176,647.19), ‘flagg04’ (US$152,488.36) and ‘stash’ (US$111,820.80).
InterCasino was voted “Casino of the Year 2001” by several gaming industry magazines, yet more accolades on top of a reputation that has established it as the oldest, largest and most respected casino on the Internet.
