Playtech Online Casino Pays Out Over a Quarter of a Million

Amidst the anticipation of a swelling progressive jackpot for Microgaming's Mega Moolah video slot, it was software provider Playtech who stole the show this week by dishing out a $257,250 jackpot on their progressive slot, Lotto Madness. Struck at the popular, longstanding online casino, Casino Tropez, the jackpot was the largest big-money win taken home by a single player this week. While a quarter of a million dollars is an impressive figure, Playtech's Lotto Madness has dished out far greater amounts. In fact, one of the most recent jackpots won on Lotto Madness was worth nearly 922,000.

Being that Playtech dropped out of the U.S. market after the passing of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (that's another story altogether) and has placed much of their focus on the European-facing online gambling sector, it isn't a surprise that the lucky player hails from Europe - Spain to be exact. Going by the username of VicenteA, the player, who happens to be a government worker, said a familiar phrase that we hear all too often (well, not too often) here at Online Casino Suite: He said he couldn't believe his eyes when the computer screen showed the winning jackpot.

VincenteA said in a press release that he plans to pay off his home mortgage first, buy a new car and do some serious traveling. He also advised other online gamblers to be patient when gambling at a progressive video slot. Apparently, this is some good advice, for VicenteA's patience most definitely paid off.

Another important tidbit of information to players is that you must bet the maximum wager on the maximum number of paylines to be eligible to win the full progressive jackpot. If you don't, you will win far less, and that will most certainly lead to some serious guilt and frustration! In other words, if you're going for the big jackpot that you see in all the press releases and updating in real-time on internet casino websites, you must bet the maximum wager.

Lotto Madness is a global wide area progressive jackpot powered by Playtech, which means that all Playtech online casino licensees help to contribute to a single massive jackpot. As mentioned, this most recent jackpot was hit by a player at Casino Tropez, which in a way, offers some foreshadowing for our very own Online Casino Reviews section and dedicated readers. That's right - OCS has currently given the green light to reviewing three more leading Playtech online casinos, including Casino Bellini, Europa and the aforementioned Casino Tropez. Be on the lookout for these reviews very soon!
