Big Win Says Goodbye Boss! Tammy R. Wins $189,338.52 Playing Treasure Nile At Jackpot City.Online player Tammy R. won $189,338.52 progressive jackpot playing Treasure Nile Video Slot at Jackpot City online casino on July 17, 2004. "The biggest regret that I have is staying with my current employer for the past 10 years. This win will allow me the financial freedom to find another job & begin from the ground up. The timing of this win is beyond a miracle." said the winner. Treasure Nile is a Microgaming 5 reel 9 payline progressive slot game with 35 different winning combinations and progressive jackpot starting at $40,000. The recent winner Tammy R answered the following questions of a Jackpot Madness manager:
Did anything unusual happen the day that you hit the jackpot?
First my boss called all the way from Austrailia to respond to my raise request. He told me I was overpaid & now that he has a CPA on staff my position of the past 10 years I was no longer necessary. After that call I had a mocking bird sitting on my mailbox & someone said that means good luck. After the phone call, I found that very hard to believe.
What did you do when you realized you'd hit the jackpot?
I couldn't believe it. My husband & I were sitting in the living room & I was just totally depressed thinking if I could just win a jackpot, we could payoff the house & I wouldn't need to continue working where I am not appreciated. I could not believe that this actually happened. Treasure Nile has been a progressive I have been "chasing" since it first came on line. After the bad day that I just had, both my husband & I said, God won't give you more than you can handle.
How will you spend your winnings?
We are going to payoff the house which will allow me to break free from my current job & find one that I don't have to work 53 hours a week. You cannot believe the timing of this win. We feel as though this will give us a whole new beginning..
How long were you playing before you hit the jackpot?
I have no idea - I was so depressed & just mindlessly pressing the button.
What do you do for good luck?
Have my husband say "have fun & win big". Apparently my husband is my lucky charm.
What piece of advice has most helped you through life?
God will not allow more than you can handle into your life.
What is your dream holiday destination?
We would like to go to New Zealand & see where the Lord of the Rings was filmed. Then go to Maui & have a 2nd Honeymoon & cruise to Alsaka & see the Northern Lights.
What do you do in your spare time?
Usually in my spare time I play at Jackpot Madness sites, now I will be searching for new employment.
If you were stranded on a deserted island what 3 things would you take with you and why?
CD Player, all my CD's & a lifetime supply of batteries. Music always helps me make it through the day.
What is your ultimate goal in life?
To retire in comfort with no financial worries - sooner rather than later.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
This is my 4th win at Jackpot Madness. I was beginning to believe I would never win again. I have been married for 5 years & I am 44. Because of my husband's job we have been relocated 3 times. This win will allow us to finally have some true equity in our home if we happen to get relocated again. Our only children are a dog & 2 cats.
