A British construction worker based in London has won a £3.8m jackpot on bwin’s
There's still rick pickings to be had in the Valley of the Kings...
This extraordinary Egyptian-themed game lets you take on the role of seasoned explorer, heading to Egypt to try and uncover the tomb of the famous Pharaoh Loot'EnKhamun.
Discover a decent amount of loot on this progressive monster, though, and you won’t have to hand over your findings to the authorities: Instead you’ll get to keep the lot, free to parade your wealth in style, whilst enjoying a far higher life expectancy than the famed boy king.
The theming of the popular PartyGaming slot may be familiar, but the gigantic win came as a huge surprise for the winning player, who has chosen not to reveal his/her identity. Loot’enKhamun offers no less than five progressive jackpots, and has turned 11 casino gamers into millionaires since 2010, paying out more than a combined sum of £3.5 million in mobile jackpots since 2014.
Winning player still reeling from huge payout
“I am in complete shock at the moment - I haven’t really thought about what to do with the money but most definitely I will be buying a house.” the winner told bwin.
“At first I couldn’t believe it was real. It is only now starting to sink in.”
Rather than using conventional paylines, Loot’enKhamun uses an all-way betting format - and with 5 reels and 3 lines that means there are 243 ways to win with each spin. There are also five scatter symbols, and any three will trigger a bonus round.
Increase your chances of a huge win with FIVE progressive jackpots
Players are then given four picks in a treasure chamber, with each of these awarding free spins or multipliers before the free games start. The free spins feature is played with 1,024 ways to win – made possible by an additional row of symbols – though all of the five progressive prizes (Blitz Cash, Quick Cash, Super Cash, Mega Cash and Colossal Cash) are awarded semi-randomly in the base game. As with most progressive prizes it’s biased slightly in favour of higher spending players, which is always worth considering if you intend to replicate the £3.5 million win with a monster-sized haul of your own.
The Colossal Cash Jackpot is seeded at $1,500,000, so even a lower-ranked win on this feature will give you enough to retire on, though as the recent win proves there’s far more on offer.
Play on desktop or mobile - you can make jackpot history either way
As of 2014 Loot’enKhamun has been available in mobile form as well, making big wins feasible no matter where you happen to be. Welcoming the win, bwin’s Adam Lewis said:
“We are thrilled that one of our players has hit our biggest ever jackpot.We are on a mission to make our slots the biggest and best available and this mega payout is testament to that”.
A surge in players on Loot’enKhamun is expected, and bwin
are giving new players no less than up to £200 - so your next huge jackpot win need not even be won with your own money.
