A bwin customer has won a jackpot of more than $1.9m (€1.4m) after placing a bet of €16 playing a slot game on the online gaming operator’s mobile casino app.

The customer won bwin’s Big One Colossal Cash prize playing the Melon Madness slot via the bwin casino mobile app. The progressive jackpot is available through a number of the company’s titles including Going Nuts, Snow Business and Loot’EnKhamun.

Following the player’s win, the jackpot has been reset and has already risen to more than €1m.

bwin.party’s director of games Golan Shaked said the company was “delighted one of [its] players has hit such an amazing jackpot of nearly $2m from 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,” Shaked added. 

The operator is set to relaunch its mobile casino app next year, featuring a number of third-party games alongside bwin.party’s in-house products. The revamped app is to go live in the US first, launching in New Jersey, before being rolled out in Europe.
