GIBRALTAR, February 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Betfred Casino are delighted to announce that one lucky Betfred.com customer has become the biggest online progressive jackpot winner in UK history after scooping the mind-blowing £5.1million jackpot on the Beach Life slot game.
Incredibly, our lucky winner won the life-changing jackpot from an original £1 stake!
After winning £250 from £1 spins on Betfred Casino's King Kong slot, our winner turned their attention to Beach Life and its huge progressive jackpot. Six spins later they were celebrating an incredible windfall as they hit the monster jackpot.
In that instant, they became the biggest online UK progressive jackpot winner and the third biggest ever worldwide!
Soon after winning the jackpot, they were flown out on a private jet to meet Betfred.com founder Fred Done to be presented with the cheque.
Fred was quick to congratulate our winner, saying: "As a bookmaker, I get a real thrill out of turning someone into a multi-millionaire at the click of a mouse. The jackpot has been growing for a while now and we were all hoping it would be one of our customers that won this life-changing jackpot. It just goes to show it's always worth trying your luck!"
Thanks to Betfred Casino, our new multi-millionaire player has the option of relaxing on the beach from now on and while it's not every day someone wins an incredible £5.1million, there are plenty of other chances to hit the big time at Betfred Casino.
Right now there are progressive jackpots totalling £2million up for grabs and an incredible £838k waiting to be triggered in the lucrative Gold Rally jackpot slot.
