A 48-year-old European player on William Hill has become a millionaire after scooping the largest ever progressive jackpot on a Playtech Age of the Gods™ slot game.
The anonymous male, who was spinning just $1 per spin, was rewarded with an additional $3,000 bonus following his $997,690 jackpot win on Age of the Gods: King of Olympus™.
Since being launched in May 2016, the Age of the Gods™ series of seven games has risen to the top of the best performing slots from Playtech, who last year handed out €154 million in jackpot payouts.
The winning player commented: “It is my favourite game, as I have won some smaller amounts before – $50 and $100. Of course, you dream about winning a million, but until now that was all it was.”
Shimon Akad, COO at Playtech, said: “Age of the Gods™ has been a major success story across all our major licensees since we launched the first game in May last year, and I’m delighted to see a player win the jackpot on William Hill, one of our longest standing licensees and partners.”
Joe Crilly, a spokesman for William Hill, added: “William Hill has been in the business of creating winners for more than 80 years and it is always incredible when someone wins such a life-changing sum of money from such a small wager.”
