Finnish player wins online gambling jackpot
A popular online gambling website, Blackjack Ballroom (part of the Casino Rewards Group), was the venue for the highest ever progressive poker jackpot, when a player won a massive $309,766 prize payout.
When players sign to the website as members, they receive one hour and $500 free of charge to use at their casino. There is plenty to keep even the most practiced players happy with a selection of online blackjack, 15 progressive jackpot games, including table games, slots and card games catering for every player.
The Finnish player, R.R., started with the $500 free play, hitting the jackpot on Poker Ride with the best possible hand, a Royal Flush. This huge win follows another substantial payout when in the same month, a player from the United Kingdom at another online casino in the Casino Rewards Group went against all odds with another Royal Flush and a $194,000 jackpot win.
Progressive jackpots increase constantly with every game played, with online casinos such as those showcased by Casino Rewards/Rewards Affiliates able to offer colossal payouts due to numerous players contributing to the jackpot simultaneously.
Currently, Blackjack Ballroom’s total progressive jackpot is well over $8m. Blackjack Ballroom forms part of the Casino Rewards Network, which is constantly growing and has won the recent title Best Casino Affiliate Program at the annual CAP Awards in London last month.
To-date, the online gaming industry is sitting at staggering heights with over 12 billion dollars wagered at online casinos in 2006, and this figure thought to double by 2010.
