World Series of Slots Winners Announced
News Date: November 19, 2008

In September 2008 All Slots Casino, of the Jackpot Factory group, had launched the $500,000 World Series of Slots competition. What had made this tournament so special was that it paid big money in the intermediate stages. After the semi finals in October the online slots tournament progressed to the $200,000 finals between November 7 and November 10. Now the names of the lucky winners have been announced.

The grand first prize of $100,000 has gone to Edward G. Edward, who has been a regular at All Slots since 2001 and loyalty has paid off. Edward reached the top of the leader board on the second day and then had a nail biting wait to see if his place held. The two things on his mind are a new car for his “bride” of 45 years and a cruise in the Caribbean. Juwarseh P. of Singapore bagged the second prize of $25,000. Juwarseh is an active member of Jackpot Factory’s VIP Lounge. She had won $38,000 playing slots at the group’s online casinos prior to this. This prize is her largest single win. The third prize winner, Virginia C. has been a member of the Jackpot Factory for almost two years. She was way down in the leader board when she started but hit a hot streak towards the end and thus lay her hands on a handy $10,000. Dorena S., the winner of the fourth prize of $5,000, said that the money came just in time. Her family wanted to drive from Arizona to Nebraska to visit her mother and grandmother for Thanksgiving. This prize will help finance that trip.

The semi finals were held from October 2nd to October 4th. The $100,000 prize money was distributed among 200 winners. Petteri V. from Finland won the first prize of $50,000. Petteri is a member of the Jackpot Factory group since 2003. His interview must have been music to the casino management’s ears because he said that he would reserve a part of the prize for playing more online slots tournaments. The $10,000 second place went to Paula J. A free spin in her second last push gave her 404,100 credits and catapulted her from 126th place to second place. Who said miracles do not happen? On the flip side the third place winner Andreas H. was leading till two hours before the end but finally fell behind. However he is satisfied and his joining the Jackpot Factory group has borne fruit.

David Brickman, the Jackpot Factory’s VP of Player Affairs, congratulated the winners and promised more offerings like this one in the future. The Jackpot Factory group is powered by Microgaming.
