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.
“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.
