A UK player identified as “Hilton” has surfed his way to a massive GBP 3.7 million online progressive jackpot win on Playtech’s Beach Life slot game – the second largest of its kind in the company’s 16-year history.
The five-reel slot game is one of Playtech’s most popular in-house titles and holds the record for the company’s largest ever Jackpot win of GBP 4.4 million in February 2012 (see previous reports).
The lucky punter was playing 50p per line, or GBP 10 per spin, on bgo.com and unlocked five sunshine symbols to reveal the huge win. The prize equates to a gigantic 379,904 times the player’s stake and 142 times the average UK salary, bog.com said.
“I’m still in shock. Things like this usually happen to other people. I don’t have big plans to spend all the money but my mum and my dad will be getting their bungalow. My nieces and nephews will be getting a good start in life. I’m still shocked,” said “Hilton”.
