Online Slot Player in New Jersey Wins $612K Progressive Jackpot
On September 19, the as yet unidentified Wonderland player watched their VirginCasino.com screen light up for a massive jackpot win worth $612,399.66.
In a press release issued by Wonderland slot software developer Gamesys, chief executive officer Lee Fenton celebrated the jackpot winner’s good fortune:
“It’s always exciting when a Progressive Jackpot hits.
Wonderland is one of our most popular exclusive games, and we couldn’t be happier for the jackpot winner.
It’s certainly a rush of adrenaline and excitement for all involved.”
Speedy Payout from Gamesys and Virgin Casino
According to Fenton, the life-changing jackpot sum was deposited in the winner’s bank account within 48 hours of their perfect spin.
From there, VirginCasino.com’s exclusive Wonderland slot game – which can also be found on its sister site TropicanaCasino.com in New Jersey – saw its progressive jackpot meter reset to $50,000.
In neighboring Pennsylvania, three online slot players enjoying the Divine Fortune game recently collected jackpots for a combined haul of $283,828.
How Does the Wonderland Slot Jackpot Work?
The progressive jackpot offered by Wonderland has been climbing consistently since January of 2014, when the VirginCasino.com iGaming platform went live throughout the Garden State.
Wonderland presents players with five reels featuring four rows of symbols – such as the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and the White Rabbit – which are taken straight from the pages of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale “Alice in Wonderland”.
Wonderland’s base game offers 100 paylines on which players hope to string together matching symbol combinations.
In order to trigger either of Wonderland’s two progressive jackpot awards, players must first activate one of four bonus games. In this case, the lucky winner collected three or more of the “Drink Me” potion bottle symbols to activate the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party bonus game.
From there, the player selected teacups onscreen to reveal cash prizes. But instead of uncovering coins, the winner revealed a Dormouse symbol to activate a second “pick’em” bonus game involving cupcakes.
To conclude their jackpot journey, the winner then selected the one cupcake onscreen which concealed a Progressive Coin symbol, triggering the $612K jackpot payout in the process.
In the aforementioned press release from Gamesys, the company quotes an unidentified game designer from Ash Gaming – a subsidiary of iGaming designer Playtech – on the success of its Wonderland slot:
“We’ve worked hard to create a large collection of games that stand out from the crowd, and Wonderland is one we are very proud of.
It gives us tremendous validation and happiness to see players enjoying our games, especially when they’re able to cash out a big win like this.”
