Gladiator Jackpot Hits For Over £1 Million

Ever since the progressive jackpot ticker of Gladiator Jackpot crossed the 1.5 million mark, players at Playtech online casinos have been expecting a hit. The news of a hit has been released by Playtech. The amount is a whopping £1,365,870.02 and the winner is Angela.

Angela is a 47-year-old job centre employee living in Milton Keynes in the United Kingdom. She is married to a long distance lorry driver and a mother of two children. Most Playtech casinos offer a mobile platform and Angela prefers that to a desktop. She made a deposit of £30 and started playing for 25p a spin. Stories of big online progressive jackpot wins often have destiny playing a part. Angela started playing at about 8 in the morning, which is an unusual time for her. Normally at that time she would be getting her children ready for school. That day, however, was during the half-term holidays for the majority of U.K. school children. So while her children and husband were still asleep, Angela decided to log onto her online casino account.

In one of the spins Angela landed three helmets on the middle three reels and entered the Gladiator bonus round. Each of her nine picks on the second screen revealed a gold helmet leading her to one of the biggest mobile jackpots of the year. As soon as she hit the multi-million pound prize Angela ran upstairs screaming and woke up her husband, who had been on a night shift. Later she said, “I saw the amount and felt like I was in a dream. I just felt sick and didn't know what to do with myself. It's just completely amazing and will change everything for us.” One of the first changes is that Angela plans to give up work.

James Frendo, Casino Director at Playtech, said that the online gaming supplier takes pride on offering the best-performing games, including a huge variety of progressive jackpot titles. He said, “Gladiator is one of our most popular premium branded titles, consistently offering players exceptional entertainment and huge prizes, and performing brilliantly over the years.” Gladiator is based on the award winning movie of the same name starring Russell Crowe and was developed in conjunction with Dreamworks. The symbols include characters from the movie. You will see Joaquin Phoenix as Emperor Commodus, Oliver Reed as Proximo and Connie Nielsen as Lucilla. In the win animations with these symbols some of their clips from the movie are played out.
