Visitors to our website will know that back in May, JohnSlots and Casumo ran a competition in-which three lucky winners were sent over to Tokyo to experience Japanese culture first-hand. The competition between the two took place from 17th Feb-2nd March 2016 and was open to all new and existing customers.

R.K, 40, from Liverpool, was one of those lucky players selected and was celebrating his honeymoon with his wife and 4-year-old daughter in Egypt when he got the good news: “My first thought was: Is this real? Am I dreaming? I just couldn’t believe that I was so lucky and I told my wife immediately.”


The young family had a feeling that luck was on their side after visiting a Shaman the day before he was contacted: “She told me that good fortune was on its way. Well, you know how you usually take these things. But this time fortune was really on its way! I am also half Japanese, so this gave me an opportunity to visit my family, an added bonus to this fantastic prize!”

Taking part in the competition was easier than you may think and only required a minimum deposit and wager of €20 on Casumo! Competitions like this are a great way to give something back to loyal players, and R.K believes that offering prizes like a trip to Japan is a great incentive for new and existing customers: “The idea that you can not only win in the game but can also win something extra always appeals to me and now even more!”


The 40-year-old winner, who was an existing member at Casumo, found out about the competition after visiting JohnSlots and believes the casino is leading the way in the online casino market thanks to their extensive game selection and player rewards: “Their Reward Program really stands out. You win little trophies when you reach or complete a certain ‘task’ and this gives you the feeling that you win something even if you might not be so lucky in the game. It always leaves you with a happy feeling.”

Like many other players, R.K admits that when he is looking for a casino to play on, there are a number of factors he looks for: “I do like adventure casino’s but to be honest, I normally go for the welcome bonus.

“I also tend to return to casino’s where I had a nice win, its pure luck, but you always think that those casinos are better. I have been very lucky at Jackpot Knights Casino. They give you 100 free spins on Starburst after your first deposit, so I gave it a try and walked out with €1200!”

Although R.K has enjoyed an extremely lucky streak, he is still aware of the problems that can arise from playing online, and such, he plays responsibly: “I like to play on the weekend, I have more time and want to relax. I am a ‘good’ player though, I stick to my budget – otherwise I get in trouble with the wife!”
