LONDON -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- A Win A Day Casino player is starting 2013 nearly a quarter-million dollars richer thanks to a $243,261 progressive jackpot win between Christmas and New Year's. Taryn L. won the massive slot games jackpot – the second highest ever at Win A Day – playing Leprechaun Luck.
Since it went over $200,000 a few weeks ago, Win A Day players have been speculating that the frequently hit jackpot was due for a big win. The last big jackpot was Kevin W’s $161,577 win on Fair Tycoon in July. Vera M. broke all records in February 2012 when she won $255,462 playing Chinatown.
Taryn said she normally plays Pyramid Plunder and Hold the Riches.
“I know, what was I doing, switching to a leprechaun game at Christmas!?” laughed the winner. “I was just having a little me time after the holidays; sure didn’t expect anything like this!”
A dog lover and avid gardener, she said she plans to pay off her house and go on a shopping spree. She vows she won’t blow all the money at once.
“What a way to finish up the year!” said Win A Day manager Michael Hilary. “We paid out four big jackpots in 2012 totaling nearly a million dollars. With the new year starting out like this, I have a feeling we’ll be paying out even more in 2013!”
Taryn won her jackpot playing on her home PC but since all Win A Day games can be played on computers, Android-powered phones and tablets she could just as easily have hit the jackpot waiting for a bus or taking a break at the mall.
Win A Day launched two new instant-play casino games before Christmas: the Roman-themed Gladiator Games and Fluffy Paws with its adorable animated animal characters, giving players 35 one-of-a-kind real-money casino games to choose from.
The Win A Day site-wide jackpot was reset to $50,000 after this win and is already over $60,000.
