One very lucky woman became an instant millionaire after hitting a progressive jackpot provided by software provider Cryptologic. The lucky player won three and a half million bucks on the jackpot at Millionaires Club Casino on May 3. Amaya Gaming announced this newest winner.
It went down like this, the woman places a five dollar bet and wins $2.8 million bucks. Now she plans to buy a new house and go on vacation. The woman said when she saw the screen saying she had won, “I nearly fainted. A reasonable amount will, of course, be put into a savings account. Other than that, the comfortable life can start.”
Millionaires Club is not new to big pay outs. In 2007 they paid out over a six million dollar jackpot; in 2011 they paid out a jackpot that was over three million bucks. In fact, Millionaires Club has paid at least 17 hefty jackpots since they went live in 2004.
Chief Executive Officer for Amaya Gaming, David Baazov said, “This jackpot has paid out over €24 million since it was introduced in 2004 and continues to regularly change lives.” He adds that the casino is delighted to make the pay outs.
The online casino that boasts this win is Jaxx.com who partners with Amaya Gaming. Representatives from Jaxx.com say they are just tickled to be part of something so big. Mark Irvine from Jaxx.com said, “It is a reminder about the high level of excitement that Amaya Gaming games generate for our players and one of the many reasons we love Amaya Gaming games.”
Winning the progressive jackpot on Millionaires Club is not an easy endeavor. You have to get to the wheel of wealth bonus round, which is done through getting three Millionaires Club logo symbols. To win the progressive you have to make it to the third reel. The minimum win on this jackpot is 175,000 coins but it grows quite quickly.
