02/19/2012 : BEACH LIFE JACKPOT WINNER MAKES UK HISTORY
Betfred Casino player wins largest ever online progressive jackpot in Britain
An unidentified Betfred Casino player has won GBP 5. 1 million after hitting Playtech's "Beach Life" progressive jackpot on an original GBP 1 stake.
The incredible win goes down in history as the largest online progressive jackpot win in UK history, said a Betfred.com spokesperson.
After winning GBP250 from GBP1 spins on the King Kong slot at Betfred Casino, the player switched to "Beach Life", winning the huge jackpot six spins later.
The player was flown out on a private jet to meet Betfred.com founder Fred Done who presented the cheque saying: "As a bookmaker I get a real thrill out of turning somebody into a multi-millionaire at the click of a mouse. The jackpot has been growing for a while now and we were all hoping that it would be one of our customers that won this life-changing jackpot. It just goes to show that it's always worth trying your luck!"
