Playtech has paid out the largest progressive jackpot ever won on its Age of the Gods series of slot games.

The 48-year-old man won a $997,690 jackpot via William Hill following a $1 spin on Age of the Gods: King of Olympus. Playtech awarded him an additional $3,000 bonus to make him the game’s first millionaire winner.

It is largest progressive jackpot ever won on Playtech’s Age of the Gods series of seven games, which were launched last May.

“Age of the Gods has been a major success story across all our major licensees since we launched the first game in May last year, and I’m delighted to see a player win the jackpot on William Hill, one of our longest standing licensees and partners,” said Playtech’s chief operating officer Shimon Akad.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly added: “William Hill has been in the business of creating winners for more than 80 years and it is always incredible when someone wins such a life-changing sum of money from such a small wager.”

Last year Playtech paid out €154m in jackpots to more than 33,000 monthly winners.
