A factory worker playing at Casino.com cashed out £599,380.45 on Playtech’s ‘Age of the Gods’. The cash prize marks the biggest ever omnichannel jackpot, and since its launch last month, the live dealer game has paid out more than £1 million to players!
Winning on mobile
The father of three children, who would like to remain anonymous, was watching TV with his family while playing the Live Roulette game on his mobile phone and ultimately hitting the jackpot. He said: “I usually only play the ‘Age of God’ mobile slots on my phone but I gave its Roulette game a try because it offers the ultimate mobile experience. Never would I have imagined winning the jackpot. I still cannot believe it!”
The player unlocked the Ultimate Power Jackpot, which links both the Live Roulette game and all Playtech’s Age of Gods mobile slots. It’s an industry-first jackpot system that gives players the chance to not only win with the right number or combinations of symbols at one single game but take advantage of progressive jackpots across games.
Shimon Akad, Playtech’s COO, said in a press release: “[…] We’re thrilled to see such a big win and we will undoubtedly see even more […] due to the unique and industry-leading Omni-channel Playtech ONE progressive jackpot network we have across both Live and Casino.”
The rise of mobile casinos
The £600k omnichannel prize at Casino.com is only the latest of several jackpots won on smartphones and tablets recently. Mobile search queries have overtaken desktop queries for the first time, so it’s no surprise that online casino players are also looking for ways to play on-the-go. Luckily, casino operators have seen this coming and quickly adapted their websites and games to deliver a thrilling experience on smartphones. What’s even better, new mobile casinos are entering the market almost daily giving casino players a wide range of games, bonus offers and most importantly chances to win. We keep reviewing these new sites to ensure they are safe for UK players and comply with all rules and regulations of the UK Gambling Commission.
