Player Wins Jackpot Slot Twice In A One In 625 Million ChanceMay 20th, 2017
Sandam is one lucky lady, as less than a month after winning a hefty £1.13 million, she found herself winning over £627,000 by once again hitting the jackpot… on the exact same slot machine.
Winning a jackpot on a slot machine is amazing; but we all know it’s a one in a million kind of chance.
Sure, the odds are better than winning the lottery, but that doesn’t mean much. Winning the lotto is a long shot at the best of times.
The nice thing about jackpot slots is that, if you pick the right one, you can win cash, even if you don’t win the jackpot.
A memo, Sandam, our lucky winner, didn’t receive, when she greedily manage to grab two progressive jackpots in the same month.
The IGT MegaJackpots gave her a £1.7 million crown
When you saw that the British lady in question won £1.7 million in total, over two jackpots, you automatically assumed she was playing on either NetEnt or Microgaming slots, weren’t you?
Play On All MegaJackpot Slots:
From Cleopatra, to Wolf Run, Siberian Storm and Isle O’ Plenty Vera&John casino have them all.
Go on, admit it. It’s ok. We thought the same thing.
But, in fact, it was one of the lesser known and new IGT MegaJackpot slots that got her the wins; namely Star Lanterns.
Easter Good Friday was the best Friday. Ever.
On good Friday, here in the UK, most of us are celebrating the fact that we get an extra bank holiday, and there’s absolutely nothing that the boss can do about it.
The celebration, for one lucky 40 year old lady, including trying out a brand new slot by IGT.
At that point, Star Lantern would only have been out for a few week; it was launched in March of 2017, and she was playing on April 14th.
5 MegaJackpot symbols gave her the win
Sandam wasn’t betting a huge amount; she didn’t want to reveal all the details, but it was more than £1, less than £5.
A little aggressive, but hardly bank breaking.
She was enjoying this low variance slot machine, and was playing for a fair while, until the unimaginable happen; she hit the free spins, and with it, 5 mega jackpot symbols.
Or, to put it another way; she was now a millionaire with £1.13 million.
Three weeks later she was back at the casinos
When you just win £1.13 million, it takes a while to process this information.
First comes surprise, then denial followed closely by worry that it’s not real, until you finally get a call from the casino and you get a wave of relief and happiness.
Other Big Winner Stories:
We’ve been writing these big slot casino winners stories for a long while, and it’s almost always the same.
Back down on earth, she decided to indulge in her favourite hobby
Three and a half week laters, when the celebration had stopped, the plans had come into action, and she’d had a chance to come down from Cloud 9, she was playing casino slots online again.
Hey, just because you’re a millionaire doesn’t mean you have to give up the things that made you happy before you had all that cash.
Sandam could have picked any slot, blackjack or Video Poker game online.
But of course, she didn’t. She was straight back on the MegaJackpots Star Lanterns slot.
The jackpot wasn’t as high, but she didn’t care
She didn’t honestly think she’d hit the progressive jackpot again; not really.
She just enjoys the mechanics of the game, the easy wins, the way those lanterns burst and more float from below the screen.
It’s a fun IGT phone casino game.
Was she thinking, in the back of her mind, that this was her lucky slot, so maybe she’ll get lucky again?
Of course, she was.
She was betting £20 a spin this time around
Most of us can’t afford to bet at £20 a spin. But most of us don’t have £1.13 million in the bank.
But what really… irritates… us, is that unlike her first win, it took just TWO spins for her to trigger the progressive jackpot once again.
In just two spins, she was £627,000 richer, and had gotten a total £1.7 million in wins in less than one month.
It’s enough to make you go blind with envy and rage.
Couldn’t lady luck get her to spend a bit of her large fortune first before giving her another small fortune? Just for, like, karmic balance or something?
How Sandam got her big jackpot slot win
There’s something you need to know about the IGT MegaJackpot mobile slots.
Namely the fact that your chances of winnings are proportionate to how much you are betting. What does this mean?

It means that whilst everyone has a chance of winning the progressive jackpot, if you bet 0.40 a spin, you have twice the chance of winning than if you bet 0.20 a spin – for example.
So by betting more than £1 during her first win, and £20 on her second, she was increasing her odds of getting the jackpot each time.
Star Lantern slot is the friendliest of the lot
The thing about IGT MegaJackpot games, is that they are traditionally on fairly volatile machines.
On the bright side, you can win huge just by playing on slots like MegaJackpot Wolf Run and MegaJackpots Siberian Storm.
“I just couldn’t believe it when I won the first jackpot” says Sandam “But when the second win happened less than a month later I thought there must be a mistake. The first thing I’ll splash out on is a new car and there’ll be lots of treats for the family lined up too.”
But they can be harsh on your wallet, taking your cash and giving you little back.
Games like Star Lanterns might not have as big a win in the base games, but that means you can play for longer; giving you a better chance at hitting that jackpot.
It just goes to show that when it comes to gambling online, anything can happen; even a one in 625 million chance.
