One of the things about the online casino world is that most of the big winning streaks and jackpots come from the slots side of things. There are two main reasons for this. First, there are more slots than every other type of game combined. Second, the payout structures of some slots are set up so that large payouts are the vast majority of the value that players can get from the overall pay schedule. One Intertops player proved that slots aren't the only games that can pay out big with a major winning streak.
Let 'Em Ride for Big Wins
A player by the name of Donovan picked up $120,000 playing the Let 'Em Ride table game, and then he picked up another $182,000 by winning a progressive jackpot. What makes this so amazing is that both of these major wins happened in the same playing session, and it just goes to show that players don't have to stick to online slots to run up major winnings. This came to a total of $302,000 for the session.
Let 'Em Ride is a card-based poker game that gives players options to manipulate their bet sizes throughout a hand. There's a paytable used that's similar to video poker based on the final value of the five cards that the player is dealt, and players can win large prizes if they hit a good enough hand with the right betting strategy. This was what helped Donovan to run his winnings up through the roof with this game in one of the largest table game wins that we've seen so far this year.
The Online Difference
In Donovan's statement about his big win, he pointed out that he likes going to land-based casinos because of the experience, but he prefers playing online because the odds are better. This is a good example of the big difference between online and land-based games, and if Donovan had been playing in a live casino, his winnings on Let 'Em Ride would have most likely been smaller because their payout schedules aren't as favorable. It's hard to tell if he would have been able to take down the big progressive, but overall the chances are better for him to be a winner when he plays on Intertops.
