While there are a few 7-digit jackpots that are ticking away on online casinos, three 6-digit jackpots have been hit recently. As fate would have it one was in British Pounds, one in Euros and one in U.S. Dollars.
The first of these was at the William Hill Vegas Casino, the game was the 'Pharaoh's Treasure' online slot game and the winner was Sophie M from Peterborough. Sophie had been playing at William Hill for about a year. However she had only recently switched to Pharaoh's Treasure. She did this because loved the graphics and also found that her good memory came in handy during the bonus rounds. On that fateful day in August Sophie wagered £4.50 on a single line. When she was in the Tutankhamen's Tomb Bonus Game she got three Tutankhamen Masks and thus hit the progressive jackpot for a payout of £102,718. Sophie was in complete shock after her win and had to check her balance in the morning to verify that she had not been dreaming. Like a good mother Sophie has decided to invest the winnings so as to secure the future of her lovely children.
The second win was at the Casino Tropez, the game was 'Lotto Madness' online slot game and the winner was Vincente A from Spain. Vincente, who is a government worker, had been playing for a few hours when he hit the progressive jackpot prize of £257,250. Vincente will use the money to pay off his mortgage and buy a car. The stunned winner had this to say, "I don't have the words to say how I felt after my big win. I was so amazed with the sum of my winnings, I found myself jumping up and down on the spot!" Vincent has valuable words of advice for other online slots players. He says that luck is always just around the corner and therefore players need to be patient and not give up too early.
The third win was at the online casino Slotland's, the game was 'Booster' online slot game and the winner was 'MRSSMITHS'. The progressive jackpot was hit for $168,947. Normally the jackpots at Slotland's hit about every six weeks for just over $100,000. Luckily for MRSSMITHS it had taken longer this time and therefore the prize money was larger.
A spokesperson for William Hill summed the huge progressive jackpot wins very nicely when he said, it shows people really can win a life-changing amount of money for a very small stake. And this is why slots are so popular with online casino players even though they have higher house edges than blackjack or video poker.
