Games By Daditz / March 13, 2017 Share Tweet Share An anonymous 48-year man from Europe witnessed his life changing over night when he won the $997,690 jackpot on Age of the Gods: King of Olympus™ slot at William Hill online casino last week, according to London reports. The William Hill jackpot was close to hit the $1m mark when it was won, thus becoming the largest accumulated jackpot ever won on a Playtech Age of the Gods™ slot machine. The lucky player was spinning the reels of his favourite Playtech video slot, which happens to be Age of the Gods: King of Olympus™, betting only $1 per spin, as he would normally do. He later stated that the game had been generous to him a few times before, giving out several payouts of $50 and $100, but up until the massive win came along he only dreamt of hitting the big time and scooping a progressive jackpot. Winning a million – every gambler dreams of it, but there isn’t much one can do except keep playing and have fun, until a stroke of luck happens and that one big win comes and fantasies start coming true! As if a chain of fortunate events was somehow initiated, after the blessed winner won the $997,690 jackpot he was further awarded with an additional $3,000 bonus from Playtech, just to round things up and celebrate the big win as a magnificent success for both the renowned developer and the instant millionaire. Playtech boasts a portfolio of more than 600 games, and Age of the Gods: King of Olympus™ is one of the newly added titles. It was launched in 2016 as the first of seven releases of the Age of the Gods™ series, all themed around Greek mythology. Apart from being advanced in both graphics and bonuses and features, the entire series of slots belongs to the Playtech progressive jackpot circuitry extending across Playtech’s casino network, which proudly includes William Hill. Over a 100 games in total participate in the jackpot pools, which often results in the chance to win multi-million Euro jackpots. Without getting into numbers, we’ll just mention that there were more than 33,000 monthly winners last year on the Playtech’s payout list, and they went home with a whooping amount of €154m in jackpot prizes. William Hill, as well as Playtech representatives expressed their thrill surrounding this astonishing win. Playtech’s COO, Shimon Akad, said he is “delighted to see a player win the jackpot on William Hill” as the venue is one of their “longest standing licensees and partners”. The spokesman for William Hill noticed how an experienced casino establishment like William Hill is good a creating winners and added it is “incredible when someone wins such a life-changing sum of money from such a small wager.” Incredible indeed, but as you can see – entirely possible! One of the greatest charms of online casinos is the tickle of colossal progressive jackpots and it’s what makes the game all the more exciting.
