InterCasino Millionaires Club Slot Hit

Millionaires Club is the flagship progressive jackpot online slot game from Cryptologic, one of the leading software providers to the Internet casino industry. It was hit last week for an amount of £421,076. Incidentally the hit took place at Cryptologic's flagship online casino, InterCasino. InterCasino was the first online casino launched by Cryptologic and the first online casino that featured real money wagering.

The winner of the jackpot is a player who wagers under the alias of "Lozzer69". Her real name has been given as Lorraine. Lorraine is from the United Kingdom and lives in the Midlands city of Leicester. She is a 29 year old mother of two children, a 15 year old son and a newborn baby. Lorraine, who was overwhelmed by the win, wants to give a new start to her family by buying a new home.

Jesper Svensson of InterCasino said that his team is as excited at this win as is Lorraine. He added, "It's always great to share in the joy of seeing someone's life changed." Svensson pointed out that it was the Millionaires Club progressive slot on which Obaesso made a hit in 2007 that was worth more than £5.9 million. Converted to US dollars this amounted to more than $8 million and stands the largest progressive jackpot hit in any online casino till date. The InterCasino website still shows a picture of Obaesso collecting his check from model Sophie Anderton. The way such huge jackpot wins can affect players' lives is apparent from the statement made by Obaesso. Two things stand out from that statement. He said that he would be taking his family on a really great holiday and many of them have never flown before. His second statement was more poignant. He said, "I enjoy being a blacksmith but I need never work again."

It is not only the Microgaming progressive jackpot online slot games that have been paying out less in the recent past. Millionaires Club from Cryptologic exemplifies the same situation. The hit of almost £6 million was followed by hits of £2 million and £1 million and then hits of progressively lower amounts. In between there was one hit of £1.5 million, but that appears to be the exception in the last one year.

Millionaires Club is a slot game that has been revamped by Cryptologic a number of times. The latest version is a five reel 20 payline game with symbols on the reels like Mansion, Yacht, Car, Pool, Pearl Necklace, Platinum Ring, Cognac and Dollars. Its popularity can be gauged from the fact that it has already risen to a level of over £200,000 and is growing at over £2,000 a day.
