How Two Recent Chumba Casino Winners Scored Million Dollar Jackpots

Written By Nicholaus Garcia on August 29, 2019 - Last Updated on May 20, 2022

Chumba Casino online slots has another winner! In less than three months, two people hit million-dollar jackpots playing Chumba.

In April, Donnalyn, a mother of three from Hawaii, won $1,880,000. Shortly after becoming the first Chumba millionaire, Donnalyn was followed by Cindy, won $1,127,000 in June.

And just how did these ladies do it? Donnalyn won off a simple 50 cent bet, while Cindy was a winner via Fireshot Jackpot.

The social gaming operator allows players to play free online slots, video blackjack, video poker and bingo using a sweepstakes model. Think monopoly at McDonald’s rather than traditional slot machines.

Hitting it big on Chumba Casino

“I’ve been playing for about three or four years on Chumba,” said Donnalyn. “I like to play Stampede Fury, the Frozen Queen and some of the smaller games, too.”

Donnalyn said she’s still in shock after winning the jackpot but plans to pay off her student loan debt, mortgage and help out her native Hawaiian community.

“I try to help people whenever I can. That’s part of my DNA; that’s part of being Hawaiian,” she said.

Cindy was a bit more secretive when expressing how she plans to spend her $1.1 million jackpot but said she plans on buying a new house.

“This is the most amazing thing ever,” she said.

Playing social casinos

Chumba Casino offers several free casino games, but you must use sweeps coins for a chance to win real money.

Only Chumba games played with sweepstakes cash will be eligible for real-cash winnings. Games played using gold coins will only lead to players accumulating more gold coins, which cannot be redeemed for real money.

A few, but not all, of the games available at Chumba include:

  • Aztec Wealth
  • The Big Goreela
  • Bombshell Jackpots
  • Hansel and Gretel’s Fortune
  • Garden Princess
  • Gem Huntress
  • Stampede Fury
  • Triple Double Golden Eagles

All of the above games have recently seen wins more than $10,000.

Additionally, Chumba has more than 50 casino slot games options. If you play using sweepstakes cash, you can bet as little as 1 cent and up to $25.

Some of the popular casino games for real money at Chumba include:

  • Diamond Panther
  • Fish & Chips Fortunes
  • Pug Royale
  • Secret Island
  • Spell of Odin
  • Super Hot 7s

Chumba Casino is a legal and safe online social casino option accepted nearly anywhere in the US and Canada. In July alone, Chumba has given away more than $530,000 in prizes.

Maybe the next millionaire is only a spin away.
