Those of us who love to spend time at online casinos may do so for various reasons. Whether it’s the enjoyment of not-so-traditional paid entertainment, a recreational pastime or a source of supplementary income, there’s one common denominator between every real-money player at Royal Vegas Casino (or any online casino for that matter). We are all driven by the underlying desire to hit a huge jackpot that could award a life altering amount of money.
No one really expects it to happen, but when it does, the joy that coincides is indescribable. Every one of those players who have experienced it will tell you they were shocked, flabbergasted, mouths agape in disbelief. Below are just a few of their stories. Before you continue on, I’d like to point out that as the timeline progresses, it becomes more apparent that these big progressive jackpots tend to hit in clusters.
This amazing story broke in March of 2009 when Royal Vegas Casino awarded not one, but two big jackpot winners. The first was a European player referred to only as Carol H. While spinning the reels of the Major Millions progressive jackpot, one of Microgaming’s most lucrative progressives, she struck the perfect combination to release the full jackpot prize to the tune of €851,348.19 (CAD $1,242,280.38).
The ladies were on fire that month as two weeks later Royal Vegas crowned yet another massive progressive jackpot winner by the name of Jean E. The story of this most fortuitous online gambler is an interesting one indeed as Jean had only been a member of Royal Vegas for a grand total of two days before striking it rich on Progressive Cyber Stud Poker. Her reward was a substantial USD $345,664.53 (CAD $370,811.62).
Royal Vegas was centered in the news headlines again when Andrew A. hit the Cash Splash progressive jackpot for CAD $39,824.73. Born and bred right here in Canada, Andrew spun the reels to wealth on August 31, and has been a devout believer in the profitability of online casinos ever since. He continues to play at Royal Vegas, but on a much more sophisticated laptop thanks to his previous fortune.
In what may be the most unbelievable story of jackpot winners in the history of the online casino industry, a member of Royal Vegas by the name of Jim M. had the luckiest week of his life in early April of 2010. Another downhome Canadian, Jim won a total of $117,116, but he didn’t snag it all in one day. Instead, he spread it out over an 6 day period in early April, and all by playing the same Bonus Slot, Bars and Stripes. He started with a huge win of CAD $45,679 on Saturday. With plenty of money in the bank, he continued playing his new favorite online slot, raking in another $28,628 on Monday. Wednesday brought another huge jackpot for Jim, this time worth $23,068. The very next day, he hit another massive payout on Bars and Stripes for $19,746. All told, in less than a week’s time, Jim M won $117,116 at Royal Vegas Casino. It might not be amongst the biggest 7-figure cashes, but you won’t find a better online casino success story to date.
Just as the month of July was coming to a close, another string of winners hit it big at Royal Vegas, both based right here in Canada. Jean Pierre M. hit a huge bonus round in the non-progressive Arctic Fortune Slot for a cool $31,220. Moments later, Joelle C. struck gold by landing the progressive jackpot on Cash Splash for $30,801.
Over on the other side of the globe, May 10th will forever go down in the unwritten biography of New Zealand’s Jason A. as the luckiest day of his life. Jason had recently joined Royal Vegas and was still making use of his free welcome bonus when he hit the largest progressive jackpot the online casino has to offer; the Mega Moolah. He was playing the Royal Vegas Mobile Casino at the time and cashed in for a whopping NZ $1,062,335 (CAD $993,030). The very same week, Jörg T. of Germany scored €125,000 (CAD $182,220) playing the Break da Bank Again feature slot.
It was a great month for members of Royal Vegas Casino, but none so much as those who favored the 243 ways-to-win video slot, Burning Desire. Peter A. snagged the largest jackpot of €250,744 (CAD $365,525). Christian L. saw lightning strike twice, first on Burning Desire for €31,449 (CAD $45,845), then in the same week he racked up a €39,043 (CAD $56,915) win on one of Royal Vegas Casino’s newer online slot, High Society. Another notable progressive jackpot was struck that same week by Amada B., who scooped €33,097 (CAD $48,247) playing Fruit Fiesta.
Royal Vegas Canada is Canadian friendly, a legitimate brand and operator that has been our editorial pick for back to back years. Highly recommended for prospective Canadian gamblers.
