It seems that today was a wild ride for slots and jackpot players around the world! Here is a quick recount of what happened:

1.  Today a player at an online casino won a $6.3 million jackpot prize, becoming the biggest all-time jackpot winner at an online casino.

This record jackpot beats last year’s $5.5 million jackpot won at an online casino. The progressive jackpot was finally triggered after building for months, creating an instant mega-millionaire.

2.  A lottery player in Spain won 126 million euros ($169 million). This marks the biggest ever European jackpot for a single ticket, lottery organizer EuroMillions said on Saturday.

The winner of the Friday night draw conquered odds of 76 million to one to snare the windfall cash prize.  The jackpot had not been won for consecutive weeks, inflating the grand prize to the multi-hundred million dollar level.  See the full story at Yahoo! News.

So there you have it! What better time to start winning than right now? Play at Silver Oak!
