Man wins life-changing jackpot at Sky Vegas

13 Jun 2011

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- A civil servant from Newcastle became the latest online casino player to win a life-changing sum this week, bagging £2,642,668.61 after staking just 90p on Sky Vegas game, Millionaires Club. Mr DR, 37, is the second person in less than two years to become a millionaire thanks to playing the popular, progressive jackpot slot game on Sky Vegas. On Friday night, he staked just 90p on Millionaire's Cub, a nine line, five reel slot game and his lucky spin saw him progress to the bonus round, where the £2.6m jackpot was landed. Speaking out about his colossal win, Mr DR said:

"I'm just a normal guy and can't believe this has happened to someone like me. I couldn't believe my eyes when the box popped up on screen showing the massive pay-out and I didn't sleep a wink that night. In fact, it didn't sink in until Sky Vegas called to congratulate me."

A thrilled Mr DR, who is planning to spend some of the money buying a house for both himself and his parents, is the living proof of the potential winnings that are behind Sky's online casino games – albeit not often on this scale! The last time the Millionaire's Club progressive networked jackpot was struck, once again by a Sky Vegas player, was in August 2009, when it returned £1.5m. Mr DR's £2.6m haul makes him Sky Vegas' biggest winner to date and their Head of Gaming, John Parsonage, is delighted to be in the business of making millionaires:

"This is the second time we've made a player a millionaire from this game and it's the biggest ever single win at Sky Vegas and probably one of the biggest in the industry. We are planning to launch another million pound jackpot slot soon so hopefully there will be even more Sky Vegas millionaires in the future."

From James Bond to computers, the casino has lost none of its glamour and customer loyalty. With each year, online casinos become more popular. Indeed, a recent report from Online Gaming Global Outlook showed that out of all the time spent online, 10% of it is spent on online gaming sites – and this continues to rise. Sky Vegas, top provider of all online casino games as well as many other forms of community-driven games such as bingo and poker, are experiencing this increase in popularity.
