Playtech has claimed a new record for the UK’s largest mobile slot jackpot win after paying out £4.5m to a player on

The player, from the Scottish city of Glasgow, spent just £4 to win the £4.5m (€5.89m) jackpot via Playtech slot Jackpot Giant.

“To claim the UK mobile slot jackpot record is fantastic and proves we lead the industry when it comes to progressive jackpot games,” said Playtech chief operating officer Shimon Akad. “I’d like to also congratulate Gala Bingo and their winning player.

“This is yet another great reason to be part of Playtech, the gaming industry’s leading and most dynamic omni-channel company.”

Alison Digges, brand director of Gala Coral Interactive, added: “This is our biggest ever jackpot win on Gala Bingo by far and we’re delighted one of our many loyal players has claimed the prize. Jackpot Giant is one of our most popular progressive games and we can’t wait for yet more winners.”

Playtech also revealed that last year, there were an average 20,850 monthly and 695 daily Playtech progressive jackpot winners across the supplier’s 70 progressive games. There is currently £50m waiting to be won across the company’s progressive jackpot network of games.
