12/11/2012 : LITTLE INFO ON LATEST ONLINE GAMBLING MULTI-MILLIONAIRE
Press material focuses more on the casino than the lucky player
A press release from the Casino Rewards online gambling group appears to focus more on promoting the online casino involved rather than the real story – the lucky winner.
Earlier this week internet punters were speculating on the win when the Microgaming Progressive Network jackpot stats showed a significant change, indicating that someone, somewhere had just become an instant multi-millionaire.
On Tuesday the Casino Rewards press blurb surfaced, revealing that the big win was on Mega Moolah, which had been hit for GBP 5,882,870, suggesting a UK player wagering in pounds sterling. Microgaming jackpots are paid out in one major tranche.
Unfortunately, the press material gave no details of the fortunate gambler, his or her aspirations and plans for the money, and his or her reactions to such a massive win.
Instead, a casino spokesman revealed that the big win was achieved at the group's Blackjack Ballroom online casino.
“We are blown away by last night‘s GBP 5.8 million win! It‘s even bigger than K.E.‘s $5.5 million win at Blackjack Ballroom," gushed the spokesperson.
"We‘ve seen a massive increase in play on over the past few many months while the jackpot was high, which all contributed to it getting even bigger … GBP 5.8 million is the biggest progressive jackpot pay-out we‘ve ever seen!“ the spokesperson proclaimed, adding that the Casino Rewards group has paid out almost $53 million in progressive jackpots over the years.
