Nicosia, Cyprus 19 May 2005 – Winajackpot.com member Cari M. from Tennessee entered the history books, 30 April 2005, when she scooped the highest jackpot ever paid online – an astounding $1,853,850 playing Gold Rally 8-line Slots at SCasino.com – part of the CasinoLasVegas Group, a member of the Winajackpot network of Playtech-powered casinos.
Cari’s historic windfall, the highest amount won on any jackpot network on the Internet, comes hot on the heels of the previous record-breaking jackpot of $1,031,270 paid out in January to Alex O. of Santiago, Chile. It also marks the sixth successive biggest amount won by a Winajackpot.com member playing Gold Rally, a hugely popular progressive 8-line Wild West themed slot game featuring two interactive bonus stages.
Cari, who only began playing online in January 2005, has won more in a single jackpot than many could dream to win in their lives. By wagering the $16 maximum bet, Cari’s return on investment was an unbelievable 115,866:1. Other fortune-making games available on the Winajackpot network include Diamond Valley, Cinerama and Wall Street Fever.
“This is a truly astonishing event,” said Michelle Roberts of Winajackpot. “Not only does Cari’s win trump all previous jackpots on Winajackpot and any other network, it only took a mere ten weeks for the Gold Rally jackpot to accumulate to nearly two million dollars since the last wipeout win. This is clearly a hit game.”
Roberts was keen to point out that in addition to high profile winnings such as this one, Winajackpot.com regularly pays out hundreds of thousands of dollars to dozens of other lucky winners playing a range of progressive games on the network each month. “The significance of this win” she added “is the added incentive it provides other jackpot hopefuls of more history-making multi-million dollar payouts. Cari must be beside herself with joy at the moment. I know all of us here at Winajackpot are truly delighted for her.”
Steve Jones, spokesman for the CasinoLasVegas Group, commented: “We are understandably excited and proud to be paying out this record Gold Rally jackpot at one of our casinos,” said Jones. “It’s not every day that a once-in-a-lifetime event like this occurs and we are absolutely delighted for the winner.”
All the staff at Winajackpot.com and the CasinoLasVegas Group would like to congratulate Cari on her record-breaking win and wish her the best for the future. A full interview with Cari M. will be soon available on the Winajackpot.com website under “Winners Tale.”
