UK Man wins $8m Slots Jackpot
February has been a huge month for online slots because we’ve now seen two huge progressive jackpots won in the past week. Towards the beginning of the week, a 30-year-old Helsinki man won €6,864,858 ($9.04 million) while playing Mega Fortune. This time around, an anonymous man from the UK won a Beach Life progressive slots jackpot worth £5.1 million ($8.01 million).
The Beach Life slots jackpot had been growing at a rapid rate ever since it was announced that the top prize was worth over $5 million. And just recently, it finally climbed up into the $8 million range. But the jackpot didn’t last for long once it reached this plateau because the unidentified UK man won the massive prize on a £1 bet.
As for the full story, the man was playing the popular King Kong slots game and won a £250 payout. He then used this money to play for the huge Beach Life jackpot, and the Brit was able to win on just his sixth spin.
Famous bookmaker Fred Done flew out to meet the lucky Beach Life winner and brought a £5.1 million check with him. He was quoted as saying, “As a bookmaker, I get a real thrill out of turning someone into a multi-millionaire at the click of a mouse. The jackpot has been growing for a while now, and we were all hoping it would be one of our customers that won this life-changing jackpot. It just goes to show it’s always worth trying your luck!”
Now that the top prize has been won, the Beach Life jackpot will be reset to its starting value of $500,000. However, you can guarantee that the jackpot will quickly climb again based on the fact that it’s made yet another multi-millionaire.
