The kids won’t be teasing him about enjoying online slots any more!
April 2, 2008 (London, UK) – Luck has changed for a divorced dad who recently won the largest progressive jackpot ever at Slotland.com. The player known as “FORGOMO”, who was daydreaming while playing when he suddenly had $200,111 in his account, doesn’t expect much teasing about his slot machine hobby from his sons any more.
“Of course, I can hardly wait to tease my kids next weekend when they come over,” said the divorced father of two who only recently returned to Slotland.com after a three year break from playing online. “I have a feeling that I will be able to take a lot of ribbing from them on any losing streak I might have in the future!”
“The last couple of years have not been very lucky for me,” said the jackpot winner. “About 2 years ago, I went through a messy divorce. I couldn’t afford to play the slots for awhile. Then I went through a much needed job change and was finally able to go back to Slotland for some fun.”
The week of his record-breaking win, FORGOMO made a $200 deposit on the weekend while his sons were watching TV. He started playing one of his favourites, Heavy Metal.
“This is one machine you can’t just spin without thinking!” said the serious slots player. “It has all these little quirky elements, such as random hold options, which just add to the fun and excitement. I always feel like I’m playing something of a skill game, by carefully reading through the last three spins to see what else I might be able to win.”
In less than 15 minutes, he was staring at over $1,000 in his account. Later in the week, when his sons had gone back to their mom’s, he decided to call in sick and enjoy some time alone at the slots.
“I remembering relaxing with my coffee and slowly spinning each round, even daydreaming a bit about what I should do that evening, when suddenly it happened. I ended up winning it by holding two Triple 7 symbols on line C (I told you smart players win more!) and watching the third Triple 7 symbol end my spin. It took me a moment to actually register that the huge amount in my bankroll was from the jackpot, but once it did I just stared for the longest time, shaking my head and laughing uncontrollably!”
