A lucky British slots player was celebrating this week after she hit a jackpot worth £486,830 from a £5 bet at William Hill Vegas.
The anonymous 54 year old female accountant from Woking in Surrey hit the huge win, equivalent to €655,202 or $743,058, on the Jackpot GT: Race to Vegas slot from a single spin at the popular casino back in January but the win has only just been released to press outlets.
Jackpot GT: Race to Vegas is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot developed by Ash Gaming that has a racing car theme where players have the unique opportunity to drive a racing car in the Race to Vegas Bonus to try and win prizes.
The jackpot prize is triggered when a player hits a male and female symbol on the reels simultaneously during the free spins bonus round. A 3D sequence then takes the player to Las Vegas where a slot machine is played for a single spin where players can either win the progressive jackpot or a range of smaller prizes.
Ash Gaming has released a number of iconic slots offering jackpot prizes including the pirate-themed Chests of Plenty slot and the fairytale-inspired Fairest of Them All slot. The developer’s progressive jackpot slots have paid out over a staggering £3.3 million since 2013 alone.
The winning player stated “It is incredible. I’m still pinching myself. I am going to buy a bigger house and take myself and my partner away on a holiday. It really is life changing!”
A spokesperson for the casino confirmed “This is one of the biggest casino wins we have ever paid out. As our lucky punter said, it really is a life changing sum of money and we wish her all the best for the future.”
The Jackpot GT: Race to Vegas slot progressive jackpot has now been reset and is currently at a value of £36,518.
