Many persons of religious bent of mind refrain from gambling on Easter Sunday but others look on it as a time of celebration. One from the second group was extremely fortunate because she hit a huge jackpot of $228,712. The player was Jackie who goes by the screen alias of Dallas Works. She said, “For someone to hit a jackpot like that on Easter Sunday is amazing. Most of the time you see $50,000, or $75,000. Very rarely do you see a $200,000 jackpot.”
Jackie was playing on the Vegas Technology slot game Mega Money Mine. This online slot has a bit of a history to it. It is one of the few 3 reel progressive jackpot slots. It has a single payline and players can wager up to three coins of fixed denomination of $1.50 each. When it was released the progressive jackpot could be won only if the player had wagered the full three coins and had lined up three Mega Money Mine symbols on the reels. When the three Mega Money Mine symbols appeared with only one or two coins wagered the payout was fixed at 500 and 1,000 coins respectively. In order to popularize this slot game Vegas Technology made some changes in November 2008. Instead of a fixed payout, wagers with one or two coins resulted in a payout of a percentage of the jackpot. If the player had wagered one coin he would receive 15% of the current progressive jackpot amount, if he wagered with two coins he would receive 30% of the progressive jackpot amount and if he wagered with three coins he would win 100% of the progressive jackpot amount as before. As things stood for Jackie the change was irrelevant because she had wagered with three coins.
Mega Money Mine is based the popular mining theme. The reels are set in a mine and the symbols include, apart from the Mega Money Mine, Shovels, Gold and Diamonds. Another reason of the popularity of this progressive slot game is that Vegas Technology supports players from the United States. Being one of the big paying slots available to American players Mega Money Mine sees a lot of traffic. Prior to this Easter Sunday hit, Mega Money Mine was hit for an almost identical amount just over 100 days ago. That time the exact hit was for $230,572. The progressive jackpot has been reset and is currently ticking away at $194,089, waiting to be hit all over again.
