The Gold Mega Jackpot at PartyCasino.com, sister site of PartyPoker.com has at last been hit. The lucky player, “gamago” of Germany is a member of the PartyGaming VIP Club, the Palladium Lounge. The jackpot of $4,978,336.62 is the biggest in the online casino industry and was won with a stake of only $45 on the game “The Mega Fortune Wheel”.
The ecstatic player said “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!"
After the fateful spin on December 2nd the screen exploded with congratulations and colour as $45 was turned into $4,978,336.62.
Although a win of almost $5 million is bound to change his life forever, “gamago” has not yet decided how he will spend his winnings.
A spokesman for PartyCasino said “We would like to congratulate 'gamago' on taking down this monster record Gold Mega Jackpot and making online gaming history. We assumed the jackpot would reach $5 million and stated as such but this record Gold Mega Jackpot hit shortly after we published those fateful words! 'gamago' is a valued member of the Palladium Lounge and we wish him well with his newly found mega riches!"
