Playtech, the world’s leading omni-channel gaming software and services supplier, has set the record for the UK’s largest mobile slot jackpot win after a player on Galabingo.com spent just £4 to spin her way to a massive €5.89m (£4.5 million) –the equivalent of 170 years pay based on the average UK salary.
The win is the largest ever on a Playtech network bingo site and the second biggest ever Playtech slot win on a progressive jackpot game following Playtech progressive Beach Life which saw the jackpot drop at £6.2m in 2012.
In 2015 alone there were an average 20,850 monthly and 695 daily Playtech progressive jackpot winners across Playtech’s 70 progressive games, the largest in the industry. There is currently a staggering £50m waiting to be won across the company progressive jackpot network of games.
The lucky librarian from Glasgow in Scotland – who has chosen to remain anonymous – was blown away at the news but went to back to stamping literary works of fact and fiction the next day, seemingly unaffected by her life-changing jackpot win.
She has been a loyal Gala Bingo customer for three years online and in club and incredibly wagered just one £4 spin on her Android Galaxy S5 on Playtech omni-channel slot Jackpot Giant – an unbelievable 1 million, one hundred twenty-six thousand, three hundred seventeen times stake win.
“I picked up my mobile and started playing while I was watching TV,” the winner said. “Minutes later I saw a huge string of numbers coming up and realised I’d hit the jackpot. I was simply blown away and couldn’t believe I’d won. It’s still sinking in and my family and I are still in a complete state of shock.”
She is said to be undecided as to how to spend her money but here are a few pointers.
