jackpot deuces Michael C. won $31,776.64 progressive jackpot playing Jackpot Deuces on April 1, 2005 at 32Red online casino. Jackpot Deuces is a video poker game based on Wild Deuces and offering for a side bet of $1 a chance to win progressive jackpot starting at $5,000. You should hit Diamond Royal Flush to win the progressive. You can find Jackpot Deuces at most of the Microgaming powered online casinos. Here is what the recent winner, Michael, told in the interview:

Did anything unusual happen on the day of your win?
I am the managing director/owner of The Online Players Association - - and part of my duties include constantly checking casinos for fair play, prompt payouts and a host of other 'player friendly' attributes. I had been informed that 32Red casino was providing an outstanding array of player services, and had the potential to become an OPA Approved Casino. So I spent most of the day attempting to tie their customer support in knots with strange requests and general questions to test the accuracy of their player support and the quality of their management once my questions had been escalated to them - as expected all of my requests were handled speedily and promptly and with the minimum of fuss.

What was your initial reaction to your jackpot win?
It was the early hours on April the 1st which is "April Fools Day" here in the UK, which entails playing practical jokes on your friends and family, so seeing the jackpot flashing on the screen was quite bizarre, and it did cross my mind it was an April Fools Day joke!! Thankfully it wasn't and I had indeed won the Jackpot.

How will you spend your winnings?
As I write this (added 3 weeks after the win) I have just returned from a fabulous holiday courtesy of my 32red win!!

How long were you playing before you hit the jackpot?
Not long. I think it was about 30 minutes or so.

What do you do for good luck?
Good question - I believe luck just happens when you least expect it, you never know when or where - much like falling in love!! You never find it if you go looking for it - it just happens.

What piece of advice has most helped you through life?
A very dear friend of mine gave me the following words of wisdom -'Treat life as a game of soccer, and if things get on top of you simply put your foot on the ball and slow the action down, if it needs speeding up give the ball a kick.'

What is your ultimate goal in life?
To live to at least 100 and get a telegram from the Queen! (This may be difficult as I intend to be 29 for as long as I can!)

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
I live in a fantastic part of the UK with my 'better' half; I am close to the beach and countryside. My words of advice to anyone thinking of playing a casino online, would be choose your casino carefully and enjoy your online gaming.
