Someone is going to have a stupendous Christmas at 888poker. One of our lucky players hit it big on one of our very popular slots games – Millionaire Genie. The 47-year-old woman from the UK had bet £1.50 on the game, late in the evening of December 12.
As an 888poker player who dabbles in both poker and slots machines recreationally, she had played this game before on several occasions. However, it never occurred to her that December 12 would be the day that her life changed forever because of a tiny £1.50 bet!
Hitting the $4.3 million Jackpot
We asked our latest big winner how they felt when they saw that massive number come up with all those zeros:
“I didn’t think it was real and had to take a picture of it. Once it sunk in, I realised this is a life changing win and can’t be happier.”
The Millionaire Genie game itself features a progressive jackpot, which is awarded at random. The probability of hitting a really big number is partially determined by the size of the bet and the total number of activated paylines.
In our winner’s case, she cleaned up with her £1.50 bet.
Time to “Roll Out the Barrel”
It goes without saying that there will be a lot of celebrating in our winner’s household in light of the recent big win. However, there is a more productive and rewarding way that she plans to put her winnings to good use.
“I’m going to leave work (occupational therapist specialising in hand therapy) to take care of my mother who has Alzheimer’s. It was the first thought that popped into my mind; I can finally care for her and get help to care for her.”
But, of course, there are happier days ahead for her as well:
“I want to go on holiday to India in the New Year. My husband wants to go to Barbados.”
How Does the Millionaire Genie Game Rate?
“I’ve played this game a lot, and it is good, ‘cause I’ve won, I’ll rate it a 5. I also play poker.”
In regards to poker, she stated that she usually plays low stakes and is by no means a “shark”, nor does she consider herself a “good player”. She plays for fun and does not have the confidence to play at the higher stake tables, adding that her husband is a “much better poker player.”
That’s all from us for now and congratulations to our winner.
See you at the tables – and slots!
