Tuesday, June 7 2011 : Party Casino's "The Big One" pays out $4,445,947.40
Party Casino reports that a female player who has elected to remain completely anonymous has hit its progressive slot The Big One on Melon Madness for $4,445,947.40. Whilst not an internet gambling record, the prize is among the biggest ever awarded in online gaming.
Remarkably, the lucky lady had only been a customer for nine days when she hit the progressive online jackpot.
She becomes the second woman in a matter of weeks to hit a life changing jackpot after Cameeq8 won $1,986,161.61 through the Gold Mega Jackpot playing SuperStar in early May .
In total, over $8 million in big jackpots were won by women alone at Party Casino.com during the month of May, the company claims.
Commenting on her $4.4 million windfall, the latest big winner said she had taken a two week break to help the news to sink in. “I still don't feel like a millionaire,” she said. “It will take a while for me to really understand how much I won. My life has already changed as I do not have to worry about my mortgage or wonder how I will pay off my big bills. I can go and purchase something without thinking of where the money will come from!”
The big winner said that she had decided to splurge a little on Melon Madness, having won $6 100 a few hours previously. She played thirty lines at 50 cents a line and managed to hit the game's colossal wheel three times, each time winning around $9-$10.
"When I hit the fourth colossal wheel, I said to myself, just land on the $60,000 colour please and shut my eyes as I was just hoping to win that amount! I opened my eyes just as the wheel was about to stop and it landed on $4.4 million! I looked at the computer screen and could not believe the winnings and put left hand to my head and softly said ‘I won big.' I did not believe I won that amount. To this day I still don’t believe it,” she added.
Casino management said that just 24 hours before this huge win, another female customer, Rebecca350, took down over $500 000, while another lucky female customer won over $800 000 days before.
A PartyCasino.com spokesman said: “We haven’t seen a winning streak of this magnitude from female players on our site before; the men haven’t had a look in. Women simply won everything in the last month and have scooped over $8 million in big jackpots.”
