Having just completed a cruise on the Oasis of the Seas, my memory was taken back two years to my previous cruise on the ship, where friends and slot channel Windy City Frenzy managed a rare achievement on the ship with a grand jackpot on Double Blessings.
The game uses the same basic structure as Dancing Drums and many of the other games in its ilk like 88 Fortunes: Any wild on the middle three reels can cause the pot to close, and lead to a progressive pick screen (which is predetermined).
Their video features a few bonuses and line hits before the big win was achieved. Their Grand progressive jackpot was to the tune of over $17,000, a significant sum given they reset at $10,000!
I was on the ship at the time it happened, but happened to have gone to bed a bit early that night, so I missed the big win in real time, but it was the talk of the ship given its size.
The jackpot was won in very late February 2020, two cruises before an outbreak on the ship was among those that led to the cruise shutdowns at the beginning of the COVID pandemic.
Interestingly the bank they won on has been changed a bit; while the Double Blessings machines are still there (linked to a bank of Dancing Drums on the other side), they are now a 2 cent denomination machine, and the grand jackpot has been frozen to its reset value (on that denomination, $20,000). So it was a good jackpot to secure before their more recent changes.
Coming up I’ll have a series of posts about cruising and the casino as things stand in early 2022.
