This Tea Party Turned Into A $612K Payday For One Lucky Spinner has a new record online casino progressive slot win on its popular Wonderland slot.

The record-setting payout came when the lucky player was in the Tea Party Bonus Round, themed around Alice’s meeting with the Mad Hatter, as well as a March Hare, Cheshire Cat, and a Dormouse.

During the crazy tea party, the Mad Hatter advised Alice, “Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.”

That seems to have worked out for the lucky winner of more than $612K, the largest jackpot win ever at Virgin online casino.

The jackpot payout was, of course, considerably more than the 10 shillings and sixpence pricetag for the Hatter’s hat. In fact, the exact jackpot of $612,399.66 had built up for quite some time at the NJ online casino.

The Wonderland game features flamingoes, hedgehogs, teapots, members of the tea party and, of course, Alice.

Wonderland players wager differing amounts to increase their odds of progressing through the game. But any size bet can win the progressive jackpot — if the timing is right.

Like a physical slot game, it’s all about lining up matching icons on the screen.

The winning jackpot went into the winner’s bank account within 48 hours of the win.

Lee Fenton, CEO of Gamesys, the operator of Virgin Casino, was thrilled for the winner:

“Wonderland is one of our most popular exclusive games, and we couldn’t be happier for the jackpot winner. It’s certainly a rush of adrenaline and excitement for all involved.”

The game has reset and now has a top jackpot of about $56,450.

Gamesys offers several exclusive slot games

The London-based Gamesys also offers the Wonderland title on sister site Tropicana online casino.

But Wonderland is part of a growing portfolio of exclusive games and offerings by Gamesys. The Virgin and Trop sites share a number of Gamesys exclusives, as well as each having exclusives of their own.

Other shared exclusives include:

  • Secrets of the Phoenix
  • Fortune Temple
  • Million Dollar Money Drop
  • Frederic vs. Francois: In It for the Money
  • Diamond Bonanza

Virgin has a Gamesys exclusive slot title, Deal Or No Deal, with a jackpot that is overdue for a hit.

Deal Or No Deal now stands at $243K, making it attractive for players looking to score big.

Big jackpots at NJ online casinos in 2019

The Wonderland slot, however, had more than double that jackpot when the lucky spinner scored. That makes it one of the biggest online hits in New Jersey in 2019.

Since January, there have been online slot jackpots of more than $200K several times. Here are just a few notable ones:

  • March 3: $667K at Borgata online casino (Lotus Land)
  • Jan. 12: $323K at Borgata online casino (Divine Fortune)
  • May 8: $306K at Golden Nugget (Divine Fortune)
  • April 9: $230K at Golden Nugget (Monkey Prince)

Wonderland’s recent hit at Virgin Casino ranks at the top of the pack for 2019 online jackpot wins. But the biggest win in the history of NJ online gambling remains the November 2014 hit of $1.3 million on Harrah’s Ultimate Genie slot.

Still, for a popular casino game like Wonderland to finally hit (and hit big), you really have to smile like a Cheshire Cat.
