Biggest Casino Winners List of 2011

Biggest Casino Winners List of 2011

What casinos paid out most? What games?

We have gathered for you some of the biggest jackpot wins that have been won in the past year at some of the biggest online casinos. The list covers some of the biggest casinos online, and some of the best games, and is based on our experience of long years.

First, a word about the casinos herein sampled. JackpotCity, Swiss, William Hill Casino and the rest f the casinos presented in this document are all well established brands, some existing for over a decade, and all receiving positive accolades in our reviews, as fun and reliable. Big jackpots can be won, are indeed won, and are paid out at these casinos straight up, pending playthrough requirements and their good name.

Although the list is not complete and does not cover all casinos and all winners everywhere (note: progressive jackpots are a different category), it does provide a good picture of what games pay out the most, and what casinos pay out most often.

The list is not only a summary of the year that was, it is also a service for the New Year. Nor does the list provide mere inspiration, important as that may be. We offer you a bottom line that can be easily translated into a list of casinos that pay out generously, and games that pay out big and often.

Winners on a Regular Basis

Omni Casino is accustomed to winners. So much so, in fact, that it runs a list of winners for every month of the year on the casino site.

What attracted our attention, other than the enormous spread of casino games won over the past 12 months, is the variety of currencies in which the games were played and the jackpots claimed. Euros, pounds, dollars - American, Canadian and Australian all feature on Omni's winners list:

Credits to Winners

There is something special about winning a hefty jackpot, there's no arguing about that. But there is still more that the casino can do, that something "extra" that makes the experience more personal, and more rewarding.

Platinum Play Casino designs a personal banner ad for each of its big winners, over colorful background and the game's theme. Here, have a look for yourself:

Variation Winners

Although the number of games at online casinos can reach hundreds, the number of winners far exceeds that figure. How is this done? Well, a certain game can create multiple winners throughout the year or on the very same day. It helps that a game comes in several variations, as does Roulette at William Hill Casino.

See here a sample of winners at the different Roulette versions at the fine casino from the past two months alone.

Trending: Mobile Winners

Mobile casinos seem to offer a limited selection of games; they offer more in the neighborhood of a couple dozen games, not a couple hundred games as online casinos do. However, it is helpful to view this as a limited list in the sense that only the best games are featured on the mobile casino.

Games such as Tomb Raider, Thunderstruck and Avalon have paid out prizes of between $24,000 and $38,000 in 2011 at JackpotCity Mobile, and the mobile casino paid out a total of 25 jackpots of over $1,500 over the course of the year.

Non-Monetary Winners

Jackpots are the best; who would ever refuse a couple hundred thousands euros for a good night's play? And yet not all awards are monetary, and some promotion and competition winners are the envy of us all, and inspire us too.

A sample of non-cash winner at GrandReef Casino will surely have you geared up for playing yourselves:

All and More

To summarize, the best casinos pay out often - 180 major jackpots a year; they pay out big - 6-digit jackpots as a matter of course; they pay out on a variety of games - slots and classic games, video poker and keno; and they pay out in a number of currencies - US dollars, British pounds, euros and beyond.
