The regular basketball season doesn't start until fall and since we're still enjoying summer it's probably the last thing on your mind these days unless it's a backyard game among friends. WGS' ‘Money Shot', which features a theme based on shooting hoops, will always remind one Liberty Slots player of the summer of 2016 when he won a $46,000 jackpot.
“I started playing around 9AM. Mostly because I was kind of bored, I had a fun weekend and really didn't feel like doing anything too complicated”, said the lucky player, Jason S. of California.
“It's been so hot here, I actually started playing this game called Winter Wonderland just to see if it would cool me down! I did OK, but then I started playing this basketball game, Money Shot. There's a bonus game where you get to make free-throws and, for some reason, unlike in real life, my shots were going in!”
Jason started with a bet of 10 bucks but of course such a win would require a higher bet and that's exactly how it happened. He was spinning at $10 on the 20-line game and said, “I figured once I had about three thousand it wasn't my money anymore so let's have some fun, so I went for it, max bet, $200 a spin!”
Three scatter symbols awarded a round of 15 free spins with all wins multiplied 3x. The first spin was a success with a $22,000 hit followed by several more wins for a few thousand each. Before he knew it, Jason had boosted his balance to $46,000.
“I'll be putting this to good use, there are some things I need for the house but I may treat myself to some NBA tickets for the upcoming season”.
“We should have left Jason on the bench today,” casino manager Mark Ramirez jokingly commented. “Seriously though, congratulations to him. He played the game very well and it was a smart move, picking a game out of season you can get very lucky”.
