Jackpot Mania – Jackpot Mania has been hit for an unprecedented third big progressive jackpot in as many weeks as ‘WEEYUM’ claimed US$208,059.25 on The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino’s Caribbean Poker.
‘WEEYUM’ plans to donate a portion of the $208,059.25 jackpot to the Red Cross to assist U.S. terrorism victims. The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino will match ‘WEEYUM’’s donation dollar for dollar.
“‘Oh my god’ was all I could think,” said the generous ‘WEEYUM.’ “I’ve been to many land and sea-based casinos but this is the first Royal Flush I’d ever personally seen. All clubs!” “The win marks the second time a player has hit a progressive jackpot at The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino in September. On September 3, ‘BOBO’ set the online progressive jackpot world record with a $414,119.22 win while playing Rags to Riches slots. The slot was also hit for $111,820.80 by InterCasino player ‘stash’ on September 8, 2001.
“I guess the saying that lightning never strikes in the same place twice does not hold true for us. This is the second progressive jackpot won by our Judi Online Terpercaya players in the past two weeks and the fourth thus far this year!” said Gwen Salmon, Director of Finance for The Sands of the Caribbean® Online Casino.

Cashing in on Caribbean Poker Jackpots
Progressive slots are a hot ticket these days, but the latest big casino win came courtesy of a progressive Caribbean Poker jackpot. WEEYUM won more than $200,000 on September 17 playing Caribbean Poker at The Sands of the Caribbean Online Casino.
Most people are familiar with progressive slots, but not everyone knows about Caribbean Poker. So we thought it would be a good idea to look at what it is and where to play.
Caribbean Poker is similar to Five Card Stud, but the player squares off against the dealer instead of other players. The game starts when the player antes in, and five cards are dealt to the player and the dealer. The dealer then turns over one card, and the player has to decide whether to call – and ante in again – or to surrender and lose the ante.
The game only continues if the dealer has an Ace-King or better. If the dealer doesn’t, the player wins back the ante but nothing more.
If the dealer does qualify, the player bets even money on their ante. The cards are turned over at that point, and somebody wins. Hopefully it’s the player. The payout table for a winning player is as follows.
WEEYUM hit the jackpot with a Royal Flush – all clubs – and took home 100% of the jackpot. That turned out to be an amazing $208,059.25.
The current Caribbean Poker jackpot at Jackpot Mania is more than $105,000 and it’s growing steadily. Why is it so high already after WEEYUM’s big win? Because the jackpot starts at $100,000.
