Back-to-back Major Millions Win

A player at All Slots Online Casino, a member of the industry leading Jackpot Factory Group and one of the world's biggest online casinos, has achieved what must be a world first - back-to-back wins on the Major Millions progressive slot game.

Leah A. won two jackpots last night within three hours of each other for an astounding $682,822.30 in winnings, online casino officials confirmed.

All Slots Casino officials stated that the mind-boggling feat happened when the player logged into the casino last night and won her first progressive jackpot for a gigantic $432,179.90. Then, with Major Millions' progressive jackpot reset to the $250,000 starting point, she continued to ride her lucky streak, and after the jackpot climbed a mere $642.40, she pocketed her second jackpot again - all in an evening's work.

Developed by Microgaming, Major Millions is among the largest progressive jackpot games on the Internet. The highly acclaimed online casino game is available in three exciting versions: MegaSpin, 5-Reel Video Slot, and the original 3-Reel Slot.

The company added that exceptional provisions of US$4m had been recorded in the third quarter pertaining to the increased risk associated with customer losses from the passing of the Act.

The company added that despite recent events it will continue to offer its multi-currency credit and debit card and FirePay electronic wallet processing to the online industry from non-US consumers.In the figures, revenues for the three months to the end of September rose 31% to US$26m.

In the nine months they rose 45% to $76m. Gross profit was up 38% to $16.6m in the three months and 59% to US$50m in the nine-month period.

Big win on Slotland

Slotland's eighth major jackpot win of the year goes to a cancer survivor who's glad she took a break from work to spin the slots. She won $113,418 playing the Treasure Box progressive slot!

"Last week, I was home on one of my breaks from chemo," said the jackpot winner who recently won her fight with colon cancer and is now undergoing chemotherapy for a spot on her liver. "I was actually supposed to be finishing a project for a freelance client of mine, but chemo really takes it out of you. I just really needed a break."

The lucky player had won a 45% deposit bonus from the previous month's Slotland Newsletter and so deposited $200, a little more than usual. After an afternoon of play, her $200 was disappearing and her work project was not getting done. But she felt lucky and wasn't in the mood to stop. Next thing she knew, she'd lined up three Wild symbols and won the $113,418 jackpot.

"Everything became somewhat of a blur for me after that," explained the winner. "I didn't want to spin - I just wanted to feast my eyes on that winning screen!"

"I called my two kids and told them. I probably should also have mentioned that they shouldn't blab it around too much, but it's too late now! My youngest son is in college, and he told the boys on his track team, and apparently, it is already all over the campus. My other son who's married and has three children, told his wife, who promptly called her mother and told her. So much for secrets!"

"I feel like this win is a sign of good things to come for me, including improved health!"

"I know a lot of our players are shut-ins, either ill themselves or caring for a loved one," said Hannah Morante of Slotland. "It's a good feeling to know we can provide exciting entertainment for people that can really use a little more fun in their lives."

On average, Slotland's progressive jackpot is hit for over $100,000 every six weeks or so. Their mobile games are tied into the same jackpots so the next big win could happen at home, work or anywhere players take their mobile phones.

With nine unique slot machines on their web site and three available on mobile phones and PDAs, Slotland is one of the world's most innovative and trustworthy online casinos.

US gamblers find alternative methods of payment

A former New Jersey gambling regulator said that online gambling websites are simply setting up offshore where US law enforcers can't reach them. Frank Catania, who now lobbies on behalf of the online-gambling industry, argued that the Federal Reserve is not expected to force banks to screen personal cheques or any payment methods that are more difficult to track, and hence players sending in cheques would not have any problems.

Frank Catania said "There's no way online gambling is going to stop," despite the anti-gambling bill passed in September.

The bill was flawed from the start and rather than outlawing internet gambling, the law "clamps down" on the payment methods, making it illegal for financial institutions to process payments originating from an online gaming site.

Put simply, it's not going to work and financial instutions are not going to monitor these transactions!

Australians are big time gamblers

In Victoria, Australia, gamblers lost more than $4.5 billion on the poker machines at the state's pubs and clubs and at Crown Casino's gaming tables over the past year.

Gambling has been an inherent part of Australian culture from the beginning of European settlement. In the beginning it was horse-racing, then lotteries, then 'poker machines' in Sydney, New South Wales, in the 1950s and now, all known forms of gambling seem to be available.

Australians have always been gamblers and about one dollar in every thirty is spent on gambling!
