A Non-Believer Turns Faith When He Won $18,921.17 On Jackpot Deuces At Spin Palace.

jackpot deuces Karon N. won $18,921.17 progressive jackpot on Jackpot Deuces on September 19, 2004 at Spin Palace online casino. Jackpot Deuces is a Microgaming video poker game featuring Wild Deuces. The lucky winner Karon N. tells:

Did anything unusual happen the day that you hit the jackpot?
Yes, my husband went to away with a friend to watch the DeLaHoya fight. I was home alone and decided to go to an on line casino (which I had never done before). I didn't really believe that people actually won real money at these places.

What did you do when you realized you'd hit the jackpot?
At first I couldn't believe my eyes. Then I saw that my credits had sky rocketed, I was afraid to touch the computer for fear that it would go away so I just stared at it, I was totally in shock. Since I was home alone, I called my husband on his cell phone. He was in away sitting at a black jack table, I said "Honey, you'll never believe what just happened.....I just hit a jackpot on line for $18,921.17. He said whoa, are you sure...blah, blah, blah!!! I finally (somewhat) convinced him it was true. We talked for a brief period then said goodnight. After I hung up, I finally got up enough courage to go back to the game. My credits didn't mysteriously dissappear. I am now a believer.

How long were you playing before you hit the jackpot?
I had only been playing for about 2 hours. I had deposited $250.00 into my account to play with, it was just about gone when wham...

How will you spend your winnings?
My husband has a birthday so I bought him a cruise for 2 to Alaska, paid off some bills, and will pay off my car. I am so thrilled.

What do you do for good luck?
I follow my instincts, and put my whole self into what ever it is that I am doing.

What is your dream holiday destination?
I would like to go to Nevada in a brand new 32' Phealan motor home with unlimited money to gamble with.

What do you do in your spare time?
I love gardening in the summer, quad riding with my family, playing with my grandchildren, family get togethers, skiing in the winter, long walks with my husband, shopping at the mall, reading, sewing, and playing games online.

If you were stranded on a deserted island what 3 things would you take with you and why?
My husband, suntan lotion, and a camera. Because I am only happy when I am with my husband, we can get a wonderful tan, and take lots of pictures to remember this wonderful, peaceful, experience.

What is your ultimate goal in life?
To be the best wife, mother, and grandmother that I can possibly be.

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
I am a happily married 54 year old woman. We have 6 children and 12 grandchildren. I love spending time with my family, and especially enjoy being a grandmother.
