01/03/2012 : Winner's list for Fortune Lounge operation indicates an almost GBP 2 million jackpot has been won
Scanty reports over the holiday weekend that a woman online punter had hit a multi-million pound sterling jackpot on a Fortune Lounge online casino have been at least partially confirmed by the winner's list for Platinum Play Casino, which this week showcased a GBP 1,965,956.46 won over this period by one SusanC.
The now wealthy player was trying her luck on the beefed up Lord of the Rings progressive slot when good fortune struck, it appears. Press material with more detail has still not been released by the company, possibly due to the holiday break.
The introduction of an enhanced version of Microgaming's Lord of the Rings mega-slot, with a four tier progressive jackpot linked to the Mega Moolah network, occurred earlier this year. The Bonus Wheel round is triggered randomly, presenting the player with the opportunity to win one of the four jackpots, valued on a sliding scale.
The jackpot was last won in October 2011 on one of the Mega Moolah slots.
