12/12/2012 : MAJOR PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT WIN AT BUTLER'S BINGO
UK player wins GBP 5,883,044.43 on a 30p stake
Online player John O, a 56 year-old married man with three children from Lincolnshire in the UK, received the best ever Christmas present this week when he hit Microgaming's Dark Knight progressive slot for GBP 5,883,044.43…. on a 30p stake!
The huge win, which has already been paid out in a single tranche, took place at Butlers Bingo.com on the Microgaming Bingo Network – the largest pay-out yet won by an online bingo player.
The massive win is the second in the last two weeks – earlier this month a Norwegian player took home 5.4 million Norwegian Kroner on The Dark Knight progressive.
“I’ve only been a player on Butlers Bingo for a few days so I’m still in shock and I can’t believe my good fortune," said JohnO Wednesday. "And all from a 30p spin! I had planned to buy my daughter a new iPad for Christmas, but now I can buy her a new house instead.”
Ian O’Farrell, promotions manager at Broadway Gaming’s Butlers Bingo.com, said: "Butlers Bingo provides players with direct access to a wealth of Microgaming’s exciting casino slot games as well as Progressive Jackpot slots, where players have the opportunity to win big."
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, commented: “Microgaming bingo provides access to the largest online Progressive Jackpot Network in the industry and it’s always exciting when the jackpot is hit! This win is particularly significant for us as it’s our biggest win on the Microgaming Bingo Network, which is an ideal way to end 2012.
“Microgaming’s Bingo offering has gone from strength to strength this year with regulated market launches in Spain, Belgium and Sweden.”
