The progressive jackpot of one of the oldest and most popular slot machines at Slotland online casino was hit for $148,711. This was Lucky Stars and it showed that the winner's stars were really lucky. Lucky Stars is a five payline slot game and is a sort of antique in today's world of 50 and 100 and 243 paylines. Its highlight is the "Hold" feature that appears randomly and also a special bonus game that multiplies payouts ten times. It has a maximum bet of $2 and if five Bar symbols appear on an active payline with maximum bet enabled then the progressive jackpot is won.

The winner plays at Slotland online casino using the name Southbelle and is a regular there for the past three years. Reacting to the big jackpot hit the winner said, "I'm so excited I can't think straight. I'm sure not used to having that kind of spending money so I really don't know what I'll do with it!" However, the winner's first priority will be helping the brother clear some of the debts incurred because of going through a rough financial patch. Then the winner will have some great fun with the family. Southbelle also explained the reason for preferring Lucky Stars to the newer slot machines at Slotland online casino. It is an interactive slot game with some strategy involved. "When you get the ‘hold' feature you have to decide whether or not to keep what you've got or take your chances on another spin. Bonus rounds multiply wins so if I feel like I'm close to hitting one I like to make sure I'm betting max to make the most of it."

All the slot games at Slotland online casino are linked to the same progressive jackpot network. Therefore the jackpot can be hit from any game. Slotland Manager Michael Hilary said, "People play a little less in the summer so the progressive hasn't increased as fast as it has shot up a few times in the past. But it was worth waiting for I'd say!" This is an above average hit at Slotland online casino. The biggest one was of over $200,000 about a year and a half ago. Then there was a hit of $175,812 about 10 months ago. The average time between hits has been 60 days, but it is a different slot machine most of the times. Lucky Stars was last hit in December 2007.

Slotland online casino currently offers 15 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Four of these, including Lucky Stars, are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. All the games are in the instant play format and do not require any downloading. The progressive jackpot is currently at $58,000 after being reset to $50,000 five days ago.
