A new UK record has just been set for the largest jackpot won from a mobile device! The online casino setting this record was Gala Casino and the game in question was Playtech’s Jackpot Giant Slot. One lucky winner took home a staggering €5.89m (£4.5m), let’s see how the win unfolded.
It’s a record breaker
Playtech is one the world’s leading gaming software providers, home to some of the most popular games in the industry and one of their games has now set a brand new UK record. A very lucky lady at Gala Casino spent just £4 a spin on Jackpot Giant and won a life changing £4.5 million. This now goes down in history as the UK’s largest mobile slot jackpot win!
This massive win fall is the equivalent of 170 years of pay, based on the average UK salary
The win makes it into the record book as the largest ever won on a Playtech network bingo site. It’s also the second biggest ever Playtech slot win on a progressive jackpot game. In 2012 the record was set when a player won a staggering £6.2m on the Beach Life Slot.
The winner’s story
The winner, a lucky librarian from Glasgow in Scotland has chosen to remain anonymous but told the casino she was blown away by the news. She also told the casino that she went back to stamping literacy works of fact and fiction the very next day! Proof that a life changing win like this affects us all differently.
You just never know when lady luck is about to strike
The player had been a loyal customer at Gala Bingo for three years online and in their clubs. She decided to wager just one £4 spin on her Android Galaxy S5 when she won an unbelievable 1 million, one hundred and twenty six thousand, three hundred and seventeen times her total stake!
The winner commented “I picked up my mobile and started playing while I was watching TV. Minutes later I saw a huge string of numbers coming up and realised I’d hit the jackpot. I was simply blown away and couldn’t believe I’d won. It’s still sinking in and my family and I are still in a complete state of shock.” We’d like to say a huge congratulations to the librarian on her incredible win.
A successful year for Playtech
2015 alone was a great year for the popular gaming provider. There was an average 20,850 monthly and 695 daily Playtech progressive jackpot winners across their 70 progressive games. Making them the largest supplier in the industry. And there’s still £50m waiting to be won across their network of progressive jackpot games.
Shimon Akad, COO commented “To claim the UK mobile slot jackpot record is fantastic and proves we lead the industry when it comes to progressive jackpot games. I’d like to also congratulate Gala Bingo and their winning player. “This is yet another great reason to be part of Playtech, the gaming industry’s leading and most dynamic omni-channel company.”
Alison Digges who is the Brand Director at Gala Coral Interactive also commented “This is our biggest ever jackpot win on Gala Bingo by far and we’re delighted one of our many loyal players has claimed the prize. Jackpot Giant is one of our most popular progressive games and we can’t wait for yet more winners.”
