On the 25th of January 2016, software gurus Playtech set the record for the UK’s largest mobile jackpot win when one lucky player spent just £4 to win £4.5 million on the Jackpot Giant progressive slot!
This also marks the second biggest win on Playtech slot games following a £6.2 million win on Beach Life during 2012.
The winner, who chose to remain anonymous, was playing this progressive slot on her Android Galaxy s5 and had only wagered one spin at £4 when she struck it lucky and won over 1 million times her stake! That’s 170 years worth of wages based on an average UK salary. All that is known about her is that she is a librarian who lives in Glasgow, Scotland.
“I picked up my mobile and started playing while I was watching TV, minuets later I saw a huge string of numbers come up and realized, I’ve won the jackpot! … my family and I are still in a complete state of shock.”
Playtech were in great spirits over both the win and the record. Shimon Akad, COO at Playtech said: “to claim the UK mobile slot jackpot record is fantastic and proves we lead the industry when it comes to progressive jackpot games…”
