Playtech, the international designer, developer of software and services for the online, mobile, TV and land-based gaming industry has this week announced one of the biggest mobile jackpots ever won on Gladiator progressive slot game.
The lucky player won the enormous prize of $2.36 million on 31 May 2017 on her mobile phone after depositing $52 and playing for 25 pence a spin.
A 47-year old mother of two, and wife to a long-distance lorry driver triggered the Gladiator bonus at 8 a.m. Self-admittedly, it was quite an unusual time for her to play. But the job center employee from Milton Keynes, England had plenty of free time at her hands at the moment of the win since it was the half-term holiday for most UK kids.
She would normally help her kids prepare for school at this time but she decided to try her luck while her children and husband were still in bed. She logged on to a casino by the name “Angela” and soon, playing her favorite game, hit the multi-million prize. As she saw the windfall on the screen she started screaming and woke up her entire family.
“I saw the amount and felt like I was in a dream. I just felt sick and didn’t know what to do with myself. It’s just completely amazing and will change everything for us.” she said.
After landing this staggering prize she plans to “give up” work.
