Online gaming operator digital entertainment has paid out one of the biggest ever mobile slot jackpots after a player won more than £1.4m in a game on PartyCasino.

The unnamed 50 year old was playing on his iPhone on Sunday at PartyCasino’s site. He won on PartyCasino’s five-reel Melon Madness jackpot slot when his spin landed on ‘The Big One’ jackpot.

According to PartyCasino, the £1.4m payout is a world record and beats the operator’s previous record payout of £866,000 which was won last month.

Commenting on the win, PartyCasino’s director of games Golan Shaked said: “We are delighted one of our players has hit such an amazing jackpot – and broken the world record for a slots jackpot won on a mobile phone.

“We are focusing a huge amount of time and energy on building the best mobile casino available and it is great to see our players enjoying, and winning, on our games.”

‘The Big One Colossal Cash’ jackpot can be won by playing Melon Madness and other PartyCasino games such as Going Nuts, Snow Business and Loot’EnKhamun. The latest jackpot already stands at more than £1m.
