It was certainly a case of beginner’s luck for a brand new player who signed up as a member to Casino La Vida, the Microgaming powered online casino on August 4th. The Canadian player had only been a member for several hours when he decided to try his luck on the progressive poker game, Jackpot Deuces and got the shock of his life. The game suddenly paid him out $44,556 in one of the quickest wins to a new player in the casino’s history.
The Promotions Manager for Casino La Vida, Victoria Lamonte said that the site was thrilled to have yet another happy winner at the casino. She said that the case of IM, as the player is known at the site, disproves the superstition once and for all that people need to play years and years online before they ever see a win. Lamonte said that Casino La Vida welcomes IM into its winners’ circle with open arms and wishes him many more wins such as this one.
Casino La Vida, which is licensed by the Kahnawake Gambling Commission, near Montreal, Canada, explained the appeal of Jackpot Deuces, a video poker game which is linked to the Microgaming Jackpot Network. The game is played as one would traditional video poker, with a 52 card deck, however it also has four wilds or deuces which stand in for other cards to form winning combinations. Jackpot Deuces also boasts a progressive jackpot which keeps rising from its original $5,000 until someone hits it.
The casino stated that Jackpot Deuces was one of the most popular Microgaming jackpots, with an average of two wins every month.
