Playtech, iGaming’s leading software and services supplier, just announced its first ever Age of the Gods slot millionaire at William Hill. The $997,690 jackpot is the largest progressive win ever triggered on Playtech’s Age of the Gods: King of Olympus slot machine, to which the developer added another $3,000 to reach those magical 7-digits.
About the Jackpot Win on Age of the Gods: King of Olympus Slot
The mind-blowing win was triggered by anonymous 48-year old male European player, who was playing $1 per spin. Having proved lucky for him in the past, he has been coming back to the game every so often. Or as he puts it: “It is my favourite game and I have won some smaller amounts on this game. A couple of $50 and $100. Of course, you dream about winning a million, but until now that was all it was.”
That said, Age of the Gods: King of Olympus is the first of seven slots in the series, which launched in May 2016. Godlike wins and lucrative bonuses also promise its sister 20- to 25-line games like Goddess of Wisdom, Furious 4, Prince of Olympus, and Fate Sisters. They have already proven to be some of their best-performing slots to date.
Shimon Akad, COO, Playtech, said: “Age of the Gods™ has been a major success story across all our major licensees since we launched the first game in May last year, and I’m delighted to see a player win the jackpot on William Hill, one of our longest standing licensees and partners.”
According to Playtech’s statistics, last year the company has paid out a staggering €154m in jackpot payouts to more than 33,000 monthly winners. During the peak season, they created up to 1,090 winners a day.
That in mind, other Playtech slots that have been in the limelight with similar jackpot occasions include Gladiator, which paid out €1,284,305 to a winner last September and £1,637,881.34 earlier in May, as well as Beach Life, which rewarded even more, €2,514,226.79, to a lucky player in August 2016. All of these games along with the Age of the Gods and the newer DC Super Heroes Jackpots are available at William Hill Casino right now.
As the casino’s spokesman, Joe Crilly noted in the report: “William Hill has been in the business of creating winners for more than 80 years and it is always incredible when someone wins such a life-changing sum of money from such a small wager.”
