Whenever any progressive jackpot breaches the one million mark it begins to generate interest. When it breaches the three million mark it becomes hyper active till it is finally hit. Beach Life has been in a hyper active state for some time and was finally hit a few days ago. The figure was a whopping $4,238,508. One lucky online slots player had become a millionaire four times over.
Beach Life is a video online slots game with a progressive jackpot that has been developed by the reputed online software provider, Playtech. The name of the winner and the online casino where the jackpot was hit has not yet been revealed. There are some online players who do not want such huge wins publicized for obvious reasons and their requests for anonymity are respected. However on would have thought that the online casino would have been shouting from the rooftops by now. It can be deuced that this lucky player is not an American. Online casinos powered by Playtech do not accept players from the United States on account of the UIGEA imbroglio.
The $4.2 million payout is the highest ever on the Playtech progressive network. It is more than double of the previous record of around $2 million hit on the online slots game Gold Rally. This progressive jackpot payout is the third highest ever according to Online Gambling Insider. The highest ever win is to the credit of the Cryptologic online slots game Millionaire's Club, which went for $5,898,352 in May 2007. The second spot goes to the Microgaming online slot game Mega Moolah for $5,556,758 in April 2008. Beach Life is Playtech's latest online slots game with a progressive jackpot. It was launched in late November 2006. This is the first million plus payout on Beach Life. The previous best was $480,000 hit in July this year.
Beach Life is a progressive online slots game with 5 reels, 20 pay lines and 20 winning combinations. The game has a beach theme and uses symbols like girl, ice cream, sun, surfer and cocktail. 100,000 coins is the second largest payout. The wild symbol is the sun. It replaces all other symbols in order to complete a winning combination except a scatter symbol. The scatter symbol is the sand castle. If two or more scatter symbols are visible on the screen then the player gets an extra win. The bonus symbol is the jewelry box. Three or more bonus symbols on an active pay line trigger the bonus round. The bonus game is played on a different screen where the player chooses as many prizes as the number of bonus symbols. To win the progressive jackpot the player has to bet on all 20 lines at maximum bet and get sun symbols on the last pay line.
