The winner of the $4 978 336.62 jackpot – the largest yet awarded by Party Casino.com – lives in Germany, uses the handle ‘Gamago' and is a member of the online casino's VIP club, the Palladium Lounge.
Gamago told Party Casino staffers: “I was so shocked when I won the jackpot and the news still really hasn’t sunk in! I have to say I had my eye on the big jackpot but I really don’t play aiming for them, I play for fun.
"I have won $50 000 and $100 000 jackpots before but nothing on this scale. It is unbelievable that one spin has given me nearly $5 million!”
The fateful spin came at 20.42ET on December 2nd. The stake was $45 on popular Party Casino.com Gold Mega Jackpot game, the Mega Fortune Wheel. The screen exploded with congratulations and colour as ‘gamago’ turned $45 into a fortune.
The lucky player has no real view on what he is going to be doing with this record windfall. “To be honest, I don’t have any plans on what I am going to do with the money as yet,” he said.
Party Casino now offers over 130 games, including 93 slots, and pays out over $10 million daily to players, according to a statement from the company.
