Playtech, one of the world’s leading omni-channel gaming software and services supplier, is happy to announce its new jackpot winner “Angela”. This lucky bgo Casino player triggered a whopping £1,365,870.02 playing the developer’s popular progressive video slot Gladiator on her mobile device.
Just three months after the $997,690 jackpot win on the Age of the Gods: King of Olympus jackpot slot, yet another player’s dream comes true and only for a 25-pence spin. In an interview given to Playtech, the lucky winner told her personal story and how unexpectedly the game has changed her life.
About the Staggering Win on Gladiator Slot
In the early morning on Wednesday 31st May, the 47-year-old “Angela” decided to take a moment of downtime while her children and husband were still asleep. Little did she know that a few moments after she will happily give up work as a job centre employee. When she finally hit the Gladiator Bonus and got all 9 Gold Helmets lined up, her deposit of £30 into the bgo Casino account then turned into a staggering £1,365,870.02. Playtech even published a replay of that win on their official YouTube channel.
The winner of one of the biggest mobile jackpots of the year commented: “I saw the amount and felt like I was in a dream. I just felt sick and didn’t know what to do with myself. It’s just completely amazing and will change everything for us.”
The last time the game triggered the same jackpot was in September 2016, when yet another mobile winner struck a whopping €1,284,305 while playing at one of Playtech’s licensee’s sites. Then before that in May last year, a £6.25 spin made another player a fortune worth £1,637,881.34 too. According to the statistics, the grand prize drops every few months but is currently at the cold €200,000 mark.
That being said, there are around 113 progressive jackpot slots made by Playtech, including new branded DC Comics releases like Superman, Green Lantern and Batman, as well as proprietary Age of the Gods series. One very hot progressive jackpot game to consider is their Jackpot Giant, which frequently awards record-breaking prizes, one of which for a total of €5,890,641.69 was won in January 2016.
