Couldn't Have Come at a Better Time. Kevin G. Wins $26,289.04 Playing SupaJax At Lucky Nugget Casino.

Kevin G Kevin G. won $26,289.04 progressive jackpot playing SupaJax Video Poker at Lucky Nugget online casino on July 1st. "None of my friends believed I'd really get paid, but I did! Lots of people think it's a rip-off, but I'm here to tell you it's not!" said the winner. SupaJax is a Microgaming Video Poker game based on Jacks Or Better and offers you a chance to win a progressive jackpot starting at $5,000. The winner Kevin G answered several questions about the big win:

What was your reaction to hitting the SupaJax jackpot?
I have never won anything like that before in my life! I was dealt three jacks and then the machine froze up on me, so I closed the game and then opened it and there it was...I won! I screamed like a little girl! I won $10,000 on Winning Wizards a couple of weeks ago, so we are REALLY happy!

Who did you tell first?
My 13 year old daughter was right here, so she heard first. My screaming woke up my wife and she was thrilled too.

What are you going to do with your winnings?
This couldn't have come at a better time, as our car just broke down. We are buying a used van. It's just so great! I'll also pay off some credit cards.

What do you do for good luck?
It's just a matter of sitting sometimes. Sometimes with my legs crossed, sometimes I uncross my legs.

Do you have any special advice for your fellow players?
Play for fun because you enjoy it, and not because you are expecting to make lots of money!

Where would you like to go on vacation?
Someplace in the Caribbean or Australia. I am stationed overseas and have been just about everywhere else.

Do you have any hobbies?
I like playing slots and sports. Rough sports like bowling or darts where I can smoke a cigarette and drink a beer!
