The news of any player hitting a progressive jackpot in an online casino is always good news. It is good news for the player who won and good news for the other players as well because it indicates to them that they too can win. Therefore the announcement of two jackpot prizes in the last seven days cheered the hearts of the entire online gaming community.

The first announcement came from Bodog Casino of a win in a game that players normally do not associate with progressive jackpot prizes. In fact the game Let 'Em Ride is an online casino game that does not enjoy the popularity accorded to slots or blackjack or video poker. The game is a form of casino poker in which the player's hand is compared with the dealer's hand and the better poker hand wins. There is a $1 side bet that goes to the progressive jackpot, which is hit when the player is dealt a royal flush. Even those who play Let 'Em Ride rarely go for this side bet. This is what Zachary M. from California thought as well. But then he hit the jackpot without the side bet in place. And Zachary said that it really hurt. Thereafter he began to play by placing the side bet for the progressive jackpot. And to his utter amazement he drew a royal flush again and was the proud winner of $159,000. His advice to his fellow players is, "go big and always make the side bet." Zachary plans to spend his winnings on a vacation and to enter the World Series of Poker tournament.

The second progressive jackpot win was reported from the Australian portal of SpinPalace Casino where an unnamed player won $75,889 playing pokies, which are what slots are called in Australia. The player had had a good month at work and decided to splurge by joining SpinPalace to take advantage the $1,000 Free Welcome Bonus. The player regularly played pokies at pubs and had a set procedure. He started with dollar bets and began winning. In an interview the player said about the game, "it seems like it just wanted to pay out." When the player was up $400 he decided to switch to $5 bets. He realized the risk involved but because he was in a winning streak he decided to press his luck. And it paid out handsomely. The pokies that this player had played on included Multi Hand 3 Card Poker Gold, Bars & Stripes, Age of Discovery and others. In all SpinPalace offers over 210 games and has paid out over half a million dollars from Pokies in September. The progressive jackpots are presently valued at over 7 million dollars. SpinPalace is powered by Microgaming.
