Bwin.Party Pays Out Record £1.4m Mobile Slots Win

Bwin.Party Pays Out Record £1.4m Mobile Slots WinBwin.Party made history last week after one lucky winner scooped an incredible £1,448,150 ($1.9m) progressive slots jackpot while playing on PartyCasino, representing the largest amount ever won from a mobile slots game on the site.
The 50-year-old player wagered just €16 from his iPhone before hitting The Big One jackpot on the five-reel Melon Madness slot, which is also linked to other slots, such as Going Nuts and Snow Business. Following the anonymous players life-changing win, Bwin.Party director of games, Golan Shaked, commented:
“We are delighted one of our players has hit such an amazing jackpot of nearly $2 million from a mobile phone. We are focusing a huge amount of time and energy on building the best mobile casino available and it is great to see our players enjoying, and winning, on our games.”
This £1.4 million jackpot beats Party Casino’s previous mobile record of £866,000 paid out in July 2013, although the amount is still a way behind the biggest ever mobile jackpot in history struck this September at Spin Palace for a massive £3,744,513. Online that figure then rises even more dramatically to €17.8 million ($22,974,400), which was won by a Finnish player on Sunday, 20th January, 2013.
Nevertheless, Bwin.Party’s latest winner was naturally delighted with his/hers amazing good fortune and said: “I was at home when I hit the jackpot. It felt great! I can’t believe how lucky I am!”.
The winner didn’t say what the money was going to be spent on, although some fun, if not unlikely, possibilities would include an Aston Martin One-77, 5 journeys to outer space with Virgin’s Galactic project, 74 nights in Burj Al Arab’s Royal Suite, or around 680,000 honeydew melon; it was a melon madness jackpot, after all.
