- Willy Wonka: World of Wonka slot strikes again, awarding another six-figure jackpot since July this year
- Caesars Entertainment Resorts in Las Vegas have paid nine $100k+ jackpots since April of 2017
Harrah’s Las Vegas guest, Janet Redwine from Coppell, Texas, received a Labor Day surprise when she hit the progressive jackpot on the Willy Wonka: World of Wonka slot.
By triggering the slot’s jackpot, Mrs. Redwine bagged herself a life-changing prize of $787,842 (£596,62) ensuring her trip to Sin City was one to remember for all the right reasons.
Colorful game offering plenty of entertainment
Willy Wonka: World of Wonka is a game by WMS (SG), released about year ago to the casino floors across the US. The game is also available at some of the online casinos featuring SG slots, so if you’d like to give it a try, check out places like Trada Casino or Dunder.
The game features a grid with six reels and four rows, featuring the scenery from the popular movie. The symbols you’ll encounter on the reels fit this scenery as well, with Wonka himself, Grandpa Joe, Charlie, Mike, Oompa-Loompas (wilds), etc.
The game has heaps of bonus features, which explains why it is so popular, especially in land-based casinos, with all the flashing lights. When you land three Everlasting Gobstoppers, which serve as scatters, you’re taken to a pinball-like bonus feature, where you can win one of several special features.
There is Oompa Loompa bonus, with an extended screen and extra wild reels, the River Bonus, where you’ll go on a hunt for treats, etc.
There is also the progressive jackpot, which is triggered randomly, and it can reach impressive amounts. The best part about it is, players can win even when playing small bets, which is exactly what happened to Janet, who certainly didn’t expect her penny wagers would turn into a huge six-figure payday.
Just another jackpot for Caesars Entertainment
Although the amount of almost $800,000 is quite impressive, this is just one of many jackpots paid out Caesars Entertainment Resorts in Las Vegas. A couple of months ago, the very same slot paid an even greater amount of $944,337.
Before that, a lucky player hit a $1,000,000 Royal Flush jackpot playing Crazy 4 Poker. Of course, there were many more “smaller” jackpots throughout the year, with nine $100k+ winnings landing since April of this year.
