Chumba Casino Fireshot Jackpots Grand Jackpot Soars Above $1 Million

Posted on June 7, 2019 - Last Updated on June 10, 2019

How does $1 million sound? Well, 1 million in Sweeps Coins ($C), that is.

Chumba Casino‘s Fireshot Jackpots Grand Jackpot has risen above the seven-digit mark for the second time in the site’s history. There is a big opportunity for someone to win life-changing money as soon as this evening.

Fireshot Jackpots is a set of progressive jackpot slots. Each bet on the member slots feeds into the pool that builds these massive opportunities.

On Chumba, two slot games are eligible for the Grand Jackpot. They are:

  • Reelin’ n’ Rockin’
  • Stampede Thunder

At present, the jackpot sits at $C1,002,841. However, activity on the weekend is likely to jam that number higher.

The last time this kind of thing happened, a lucky player from Hawaii logged onto the site. A few minutes later, Donnalyn Kalei was $C1.88 million richer.

What’s this $C stuff on Chumba Casino?

If you’re unfamiliar with Chumba Casino or its sister site, Global Poker, then the currency symbol we’re using might look strange. You might think that we’re unnecessarily or mistakenly adding a capital C between the dollar sign and the number.

However, this isn’t the case. One of the most remarkable things about Chumba Casino is that it operates using its signature currency.

So, the $C designator actually stands for Sweeps Coins. Sweeps Coins is a convertible currency that can be exchanged for US dollars at a 1:1 ratio.

Players acquire Sweeps Coins for free when they buy Chumba’s concurrent currency, Gold Coins. Gold Coins, which cannot be exchanged, are available for purchase at various US dollar increments.

This system might seem complex, but its existence is quite important to the longevity of the site. Chumba Casino, despite the name, is a sweepstakes site, not a gambling one.

So, the use of Gold Coins and Sweeps Coins is necessary to remain true to that mission.

However, no matter the format, few people would mind winning more than $1 million. So, give Chumba Casino a try, and maybe you’ll have the very good problem of figuring out how the currency system works.
