A Northern Irish player has scooped £4.3m while playing Blueprint Gaming’s branded slot game Mars Attacks! on Paddy Power.

33 year-old Sean Doyle won the Jackpot King progressive system prize during the game, which was only released at the turn of the year through a partnership with Warner Bros Consumer Products.

“This sums up why Blueprint Gaming’s progressive jackpot system is a key component of our games offering,” said Paddy Power Gaming commercial director Mike Phelan. “Jackpot King allows our players to win staggering amounts of money at the spin of a reel, while also raising excitement levels and delivering increased revenues.

“We’re thrilled that Sean has walked away with the jackpot and hope he has as much fun spending the prize as he did playing the game.”

Blueprint Gaming director of marketing and relationships Jo Purvis added: “Congratulations to Sean and what an amazing start to the year to win such a life-changing sum of money.

“Our Jackpot King Deluxe series continues to offer an exciting layer to our games where players can dream to win big. We look forward to adding new games to our progressive system throughout 2019.”
