The progressive jackpot has been growing on Playtech's Beach Life slot for quite a while now, and everyone in the industry agreed that it was only a matter of time before one lucky player walked away with the multi million sum up for grabs.
As such, it was announced this week that a delighted player from the United Kingdom, known by his username of 'Hilton', hit the jackpot on Beach Life slot, taking home the grand sum of £3.7 million!
This is the second largest slot win in Playtech's history, with Beach Life also holding the record for the first spot - a £4.4 million win on the same game in February 2012.
Hilton played the summer-themed Beach Life slot at Bgo.com online casino and wagered 50p per line (£10 per spin) as he went for gold.
The stunned player suddenly found himself face to face with a prize that was nearly 380,000 times his original stake - making him one of the biggest winners of a jackpot in the history of online gambling.
Plans for Slot Jackpot Win
Hilton, a regular player at Bgo.com online casino, could hardly believe his luck at becoming a millionaire nearly four times over, simply for playing one of his favorite slot games.
"I'm still in shock," he said. "Things like this usually happen to other people."
When asked what he planned to do with the £3.8 million, Hilton said that he didn't have major plans yet, although he would definitely be treating his parents to a bungalow.
"My nieces and nephews will be getting a good start in life," he said. "I'm still shocked."
Hilton has also put aside his plans to go on holiday in the UK this year, and has already made reservations for a more luxurious trip to the Caribbean.
