Dark Knight Slot Jackpot Pays out Big at All Slots Casino

All Slots Casino was the scene of a big progressive slot win this week when Terence G, a player from the UK, hit the jackpot and took home GBP 52,418.98. The slot game, which is based on the legendary Warner Bros movie themed on the superhero Batman, is filled to the brim with bonus features. The game promises non stop entertainment, four progressive jackpots (one seeded at a cool million) and a free spin features. The Dark Knight progressive slot also includes the random Batman and Joker features for extra wins.

What makes Terence G’s win even more exciting is the fact that he joined All Slots Casino only 24 hours before the windfall.

“The Dark Knight launched nearly a year ago and quickly became one of the most popular games at the casino,” said the Vice President for Player Affairs at the online casino, David Brickman. “The combination of amazing jackpots along with one of the world’s most popular comic book heroes is certainly a winning one. Congratulations, Terence! Here’s to your continued good luck at All Slots Casino.

The Dark Knight video slot is only one of several hundred games available at the Microgaming powered All Slots Casino.

A player who sat down to play at her favorite online casino realized that she was on to a good thing when she hit a big amount almost immediately. Tanya S, a VIP player at Intertops Casino, wagered just $2 and almost instantly hit a jackpot of over $12,000. But while some players may have logged off and celebrated their win, Tanya opted to continue and in the end clocked out $55,000 in payouts by the end of the evening.

The first jackpot took place on Crystal Waters, a popular game at Intertops Casino. Tanya S. then switched to Golden Retriever slot and won $5,027 and a further $2K on the game’s free game feature. Other games that saw her credits soar were Triple Twister and Lions Lair.

Asked what the shipping clerk planned to do with her newfound fortune, she said that would pay off her credit cards.

“When I won that big jackpot it scared me at first because of the purple fireworks box that pops up!” said the player. “Then the reality of what just happened kicked in and so I called my husband over to feel my pulse. He did. He said it was a little fast. I said ‘Ya wanna know why?!?’ and pointed at the computer screen. He said ‘Nice, but are you going to cash it out?’ I laughed and said ‘Well, most of it’."
