Six Figure Online Casino Jackpots Hit All Over

Published on: April 1, 2009 

It is usually the seven figure jackpots that make the big news. The six figure hits are often overlooked. But ask any online player and he will aver that he would be extremely happy at receiving a six figure payout. In the week gone by there have been three six figure hits in different online casinos.

The most recent hit was at Bodog Casino. Drew C from Texas struck it rich at Let ‘Em Ride poker, winning $127,000. Let ‘Em Ride is a poker based game but the players play against the house. The player is paid at specified payouts for acquiring the best poker hand from a combination of pocket and community cards. However what leads to the six figure hits is the progressive jackpot that this online game has. The player can place an additional wager for the progressive jackpot and then if he gets a royal flush the jackpot is his. Drew was lucky at reaching six figures. In February, Scott T hit the jackpot in Let ‘Em Ride when it was $97,287, just short of the six figure mark. The jackpot has already begun to climb. It currently stands at $13,962. However another poker based online casino game, Caribbean Stud Poker has a jackpot riding at $120,358 and is waiting to be hit.

The 3D online casino, Win A Day, was the venue of the second hit. The game was the Slot-O-Matic online slot, which was launched only in January 2009. The online casino is itself new and this was only the second jackpot ever hit there. The first jackpot of $148,724 was won by Monica68 in January. The current jackpot won by 123jaki was slightly larger at $159,660. She said, “I have to admit, I was daydreaming a bit when suddenly I saw that six-figure number. I had to get my husband to look at it before I could really believe it. I still find it hard to believe.” Slot-O-Matic is a 3 reel single payline slot game. Win A Day is a no download casino that offers in all six slot and video poker games.
Earlier Royal Vegas online casino of the Fortune Lounge group had recorded a hit on Cyberstud Poker. The player was Jean E and the amount was $345,665. Cyberstud Poker has an average payout of just over $275k and hits about every 4 months. The jackpot resets at $100,000 and therefore guarantees a six figure hit every time. The game is somewhat similar to Let ‘Em Ride. One defining difference is that the progressive jackpot bet is compulsory in Cyberstud Poker. Royal Vegas had a seven figure hit earlier in March when a lucky player won over a million dollars on the progressive slot Major Millions.
