Online casino operator Slotland.com reports that a retired grandmother who prefers the quiet comfort of online casinos to the noise and smoke of Las Vegas land operations won a progressive jackpot of $175 812 on October 12th.
The player, known as QAZMLP, won the jackpot playing Jacks or Better, one of Slotland’s most popular video poker games.
The avid slots player said she used to enjoy going to casinos in Las Vegas but more recently prefers the comfort and convenience of gambling online.
“Maybe I am just getting too old, but within thirty minutes of getting inside a [land] casino, I get a headache with all the noise and music blasting around me,” said the lucky winner.
The night of QAZMLP's big win was lucky from the start when the first hand she was dealt was a Full House in the first round. Although she’d started with small bets she took this as a good sign and increased her bets to $10. After a few more good hands she’d turned her $200 deposit into $500.
“In the next five hands, I ended up with a straight, 3 of a kind (twice), a dead hand, and a beautiful four of a kind,” QAZMLP recalled about the night that changed her life.
“I honestly lost track of time with the best winning streak I ever had at Slotland but by the time I was dealt out the ultimate hand (I got the Ace, Queen, Jack and 10 of Spades and pulled up the King of Spades), I was almost at $1 300. With the $175 000 jackpot, I ended up with over $177 000.
QAZLAP plans to pay off the last $30 000 on her house mortgage and then take a trip-of-a-lifetime to Japan via Hawaii.
She said that each of her seven grandchildren will get a pleasant surprise this Christmas, too - wallets filled with ten $100 bills.
