More details on the weekend's record over $6.3 million progressive jackpot win have been made available by the online casino concerned, Riverbelle Casino.com in the Gibraltar-based Carmen Media group.
Apparently Greek online player Georgios M. (36) is a regular slots gambler at the casino, and Mega Moolah, on which the giant win was achieved, is one of his faves. Georgios is a business owner, husband and father, who telephoned River Belle's casino support line for confirmation after seeing the huge win on his computer screen, as in his own words he "could not believe it". Staff quickly calmed his nerves and assured him that he had indeed won over Euro 6.3 million in cash, which will be paid out in a single tranche by the Microgaming Progressive Network.
Tim Johnson, chairman of Riverbelle's parent Belle Rock Entertainment said: "We at Belle Rock Entertainment take the utmost pleasure in seeing our players win life-changing jackpots. It is an amazing accomplishment that for a single bet of Euro 5 a valued long time River Belle player walked away with the largest online jackpot ever won. Well done and enjoy your winnings Georgios."
