Toronto-listed operator The Stars Group has launched Stars Mega Spin, a space-themed progressive jackpot slot offering a minimum million-dollar prize.

The in-house developed Stars Mega Spin is the second million-dollar progressive jackpot created by the company.

The slot shares a linked mega jackpot with Millionaires Island, which went live on PokerStars Casino earlier this year and has already delivered five million-dollar wins.

Stars Mega Spin was launched in the UK and in shared liquidity markets last week for play via desktop, web and mobile, with stakes ranging from $0.50 to $50.

"Since its launch almost three years ago, PokerStars Casino has quickly grown its range of table games and slots, but we are particularly proud to offer our second in-house progressive million-dollar jackpot slots game to our customers," PokerStars Casino managing director Bo Wänghammar said.

"We are the only online casino operator that is currently providing exclusive million dollar progressive jackpots using only its own customers."

Shares in The Stars Group (TSX:TSGI) closed in Toronto Friday up 0.55 per cent at CAD$27.44 per share, having set a new 52-week high of $28.06 per share a day earlier.
