Jackpot Mania – A player who spent six months playing in the practice mode of Omni Casino & Sportsbook®’s online software won two progressive jackpots totaling US$156,518.90 in his second day playing for real money on February 14, 2002.
The Omni Casino & Sportsbook® player with the Internet handle ‘Mark’ hit a Straight and Royal Flush for $15,220.98 and $137,435.93, respectively, on Spice Island Stud Poker. Mark hit the Royal Flush while waiting to celebrate his earlier Straight Flush won two hours prior.
“After my first stroke of luck I called a friend to share the exciting news; then made dinner reservations for that night,” recalls Mark. “Two hours later, I poured myself a drink and sat at the multi-player Spice Island Poker table. My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw the Royal Flush and my account balance over $156k. This was truly a Valentine’s Day I’ll never forget.”
Spice Island contains a progressive jackpot offered by Jackpot Mania, bringing land-based progressive poker action worth a minimum $100,000 to the Internet.
Mark’s win brings the 2002 $100K+ progressive jackpot win count to three, already set to eclipse last year’s mark of ten $100K+ jackpots. In total, more than $5.5 million was awarded on over 17,000 Jackpot Mania wins – averaging over 47 winners daily.
‘ActionS’, a long-time Omni Casino & Sportsbook® player won a $215,544.38 jackpot on a Royal Flush at Omni’s multiplayer Spice Island Poker tables on November 9, 2001, and was the third largest Jackpot Mania prize to date.
