From its headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, the leading online casino software provider Cryptologic announced that its flagship progressive jackpot Millionaires Club was hit for over £2.6 million last week. Cryptologic has now completed the verification process and revealed that the winner is a 37-year old civil servant from Newcastle, England. The name of the winner was not disclosed. He plans to spend some of the prize money buying houses for himself and his parents.
There are three versions of Millionaires Club networked to the same progressive jackpot. The original was the three reel single payline slot game. Subsequently a five reel 9 payline slot game was added and finally a five reel 20 payline slot game was added. The winner hit the jackpot from the five reel 9 payline slot game. He staked just 90p and walked away with one of the biggest wins online after successfully spinning his way through several progressive bonus rounds.
The hit was made from Sky Vegas, a leading licensee of Cryptologic games and is the biggest payout at the online casino to date. Sky Vegas' Head of Gaming, John Parsonage, said, "We are in the business of making instant millionaires. This is the second time one of our players has bagged a life-changing windfall from Cryptologic's game and is a great crowd-puller for our site." Parsonage added that Sky Vegas is planning to launch another million pound jackpot online slot game soon which will lead to more Sky Vegas millionaires in the future.
Ian Price, Cryptologic's Head of Business and Product Development, informed that Millionaires Club was launched in 2005. Since then this progressive jackpot slot game has gained loyal following due to its innovative content and a unique blend of compelling entertainment value and big cash prizes. Millionaires Club has been licensed by Cryptologic to many of the world's leading online casino operators, which include, apart from Sky Vegas, InterCasino, William Hill, 888, VIP Casino and Virgin Casino. This winner is the fourth player to become an instant millionaire from Millionaires Club. The biggest ever payout from the game was in 2007, amounting to £5.9 million or $8 million. Ian Price added, "We congratulate Sky Vegas and the player on this win, which again highlights the game's huge appeal to casino operators and players worldwide."
After the hit, the progressive jackpot amount was reset and is now ticking £216,000. It is still the largest progressive jackpot on any of the Cryptologic slot games. The other Cryptologic progressive jackpots are the rapid fire type, which trigger frequently but pay smaller amounts. Millionaires Club hits on an average every six months.
