Streak Continues as ‘thebom’ Ignites a US$110,867.20 Payday, Fifth in Four Weeks
The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino has played host to a US$110,867.20 progressive jackpot win, the latest in a four-week period that has seen the most activity of its kind in Internet history: five jackpots in a 23-day span.
A player who goes by the online handle ‘thebom’ set-off the progressive on Spice Island Poker, a progressive table game with a default US$100,000 prize offered by Jackpot Mania (www.jackpotmania.com). Jackpot Mania brings land-based style progressive action across 20 online casinos.
‘thebom’ won the jackpot after opening her account with The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino (www.carsands.com) less than four months ago.
“My first reaction was unbelievable,” recalled ‘thebom’. “I threw my hands up in the air and could not speak all I could do was cry with joy. It was an experience I will never forget.”
Never has such a great amount of individual prizes been won in such a short period. The unprecedented flurry began March 14 when a cash-strapped waitress with the handle ‘ilkirby’ won US$193,012.00 at William Hill Casino (www.williamhillcasino.com) less than twenty-four hours after opening an account on her 33rd birthday.
Next came ‘Barb’ on March 24 at UFABET InterCasino (www.intercasino.com). ‘Barb’ – who received a US$100 random prize from InterCasino manager Ryan Hartley earlier in the day – turned her US$100 into US$11,518.00 on a multi-player Let It Ride four-of-a-kind. After a break from the casino, she would press her luck into the win of a lifetime, a US$180,770.68 jackpot on Spice Island and a one-day total of over US$192,000.
The third win came early in the morning on March 26, as ‘mgpg33’ hit a US$118,700.24 jackpot on Rags to Riches after playing in the casino less than three weeks.
Finally, InterCasino-patron ‘billie’ captured a Rags to Riches prize worth US$102,263.88 March 28, moments after its jackpot had been reset to US$100,000.
The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino continues to earn the reputation among Jackpot Mania players as the destination to win massive progressive jackpots. On September 3, ‘BOBO’ set the standing online progressive jackpot world record with a US$414,119.22 win while playing Rags to Riches.
