Lucky grandma wins big at slotland

26 April 2007

One lucky grandmother, mired in bills and debt, put aside her financial woes aside for one evening and decided to test her luck in slotland.com's triple video poker game "Wild Hearts."

Three hands into her session, the grandmother joyfully watched two wild cards pop up with her trip Kings, giving her five-of-a-kind and a jackpot totaling $775.

She missed slotland.com's progressive jackpot, nearly $100,000 this month, but the amount was a welcome sight for a grandmother who wanted to buy her grandson a new pair of shoes.

Tempting fate just awhile longer, the grandmother ran her winning streak up to $1,000 and quickly cashed-out, giving her more than enough to buy the shoes and pay off some of her bills.

"I sure don't rely on winning at the slot machines to pay off my debts," said the grandmother in a press release. "I just decided to play that night to forget about bills for awhile."

"Wild Hearts" is a popular game at slotland.com and this particular lucky granny's favorite. It's a triple video poker game, meaning each wager allows a player three different rows to cards to make their fortune.

The game features three 54-card decks. The two extra cards in each deck are the "Wild Cards," the same ones granny used to hit her jackpot. The minimum bet per hand is a quarter and the maximum is $15.

One max bet gives the player a chance to hit the progressive jackpot if they hit a royal flush. In the last 11-months, slotland.com has awarded nine jackpots of more than $100,000.

"Of course it's exciting to win a huge jackpot – and we're certainly overdue for a big progressive jackpot winner," said slotland.com's Hannah Morante in a release. "But smaller wins can make big differences, too. We see lots of players win a few hundred on a small bet, and we're excited every time."

The last progressive jackpot was hit on March 29.

Ryan McLane was a poker reporter for Casino City. Although he has a strong background in reporting, the same can't be said for his poker skills. He has never won a major tournament nor is he a professional player. He applied for this job thinking it was a joke, only to find it out that it's true, people will pay you to write about poker. His favorite word is ridiculous.

After receiving his BA in History from Stonehill College in Easton, MA, he somehow ended up freelance reporting for a couple years before being deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom III with the Massachusetts National Guard. He's back now and is a strong advocate of the phrase "God Bless America."

Currently, Ryan lives in Boston and occasionally makes international treks to cover tournament poker and news. Feature writing is his passion and there is no need to ask for his opinion, he'll probably offer it first - free of charge.
