UK’s Largest Mobile Jackpot Win Awarded
One lucky player has set a new record winning the UK’s largest ever mobile progressive pokie jackpot. The player from Glasgow was playing the Jackpot Giant pokie game at Gala Bingo when she hit the jackpot for £4.5 million.
The player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, a librarian, won the big jackpot on just a £4 bet. She had been playing at Gala Bingo online for three years, but on the lucky day she placed just one bet to win 1,126,317 times her stake for a total of £4.5 million.
“I picked up my mobile and started playing while I was watching TV,” said the winner. “Minutes later I saw a huge string of numbers coming up and I 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.”
This win represents the biggest win ever on a Playtech network bingo site and the second biggest win ever on a Playtech progressive pokie game. The record for the biggest Playtech jackpot win was made in 2012 when the Beach Life pokie game paid out £6.2 million.
Jackpot Giant is a 5 reel, 50 payline video pokie game set on a Samoan island with erupting volcanoes, rock formations, colourful gems and a giant. The game features a wild symbol and pick me bonus game.
It is one of 70 progressive games in the Playtech network, making it the largest of all progressive networks. In 2015, there were 695 daily and 20,850 winners on the progressive jackpot games and there is currently £50 million in jackpots to be won across all their jackpot games.
