A Jackpot Winner Talks

30 July 2003

Curacao -- (Press Release) -- On July 18, Jim L won the world’s largest online jackpot, winning $1,683,524.64 on Major Millions at Lucky Nugget Casino, a member of the Jackpot Madness network.

Jim is the third winner of over a million and a half dollars cash on the Major Millions slot in a little over a year. To begin his life as a millionaire, Jim and his partner will be taken on an all expense paid luxury trip to Barbados by Jackpot Madness.

Jackpot Madness interviewed Jim to get his reaction to his record breaking win.

Jackpot Madness: How did it feel to hit such a huge, life changing jackpot?

Jim: “It was just a regular day. I came home from work, sat down to relax and play a little. Once the jackpot hit, I just sat there and stared at the screen for about 15 minutes. I was totally numb. Then I got up and danced around the house. I couldn’t believe my eyes.”

Jim's played all the Jackpot Madness progressives for about a year. The day he won, he deposited $100 and played for only about 20 minutes before he struck gold.

Jim, age 53, worked for the Railroad for 11 years and for the Department of Corrections for 13 years as a truck driver and an expediter. Elated from his win, Jim's given his notice and is looking forward to enjoying his future.

Jackpot Madness: How do you plan on spending your huge winnings?

Jim: “I would like to build a new house. I want to either remodel or rebuild the home we are living in now for my 81-year old mother and I will build my dream home. My 15 year old son still doesn’t know about this. He’ll go bonkers! I am going to put some of the money away for his college education. I also plan on playing a lot of golf, invest, donate some of the winnings to charity and continue playing Major Millions. You never know, luck can strike twice in the same place!”

Jackpot Madness: What are you looking forward to doing on the Barbados trip?

Jim: “I want to play golf and enjoy the atmosphere of the tropics. Of course I would love to play in a casino too. It’s been a while since I played in a real casino. Once I found Lucky Nugget and Jackpot Madness, it was just so much more comfortable for me to play at home. I have better luck on line as well.”

Jackpot Madness: Do you have any advice for others?

Jim: “Just do what’s right and be the best person you can be. That’s what I try and do. I was so lucky to come home from Vietnam that I just appreciate every day.”
