World Online Casino Delivers Large Jackpot

If you haven't heard the news already,
Real Time Gaming online casinos have been making a
recent wave of big-money wins on their progressive
slots. Great news for RTG, which often falls under the
radar of heavy hitters like Microgaming, Playtech and
Cryptologic, the news is even better for RTG's
increasing number of online casino licensees. The most
recent win was for over $270,000, and was hit at the
popular UK-based Club World Casino.
Coming off a $5 bet on the Jackpot
Pinatas progressive slot, this was the first big win for
this particular slot game. The player, identified only
as Cathy (for security reasons), hails from Canada,
where online casino gambling is in something of a grey
area. That hasn't stopped countless Canadian's from
gambling online, however. And of those who choose to
play at regulated online casinos like Club World, the
rewards can obviously be quite worthwhile.
On the heels of one of the largest
online jackpots ever to be won - over $2.25 million on
Cryptologic's Millionaire's Club progressive slot game -
the win at Club World has undoubtedly sparked a
competition of sorts between software providers. While
bragging rights have always been accorded to the online
casino who is home to the largest progressive jackpot,
it is the software providers who truly get the rights to
brag. Without them, large networks of online casinos
would be difficult to form, especially if there was a
limited player base.
Club World Casino and RTG are
certainly not falling short of a healthy player base.
Besides the Club World Group, another popular RTG site
that is fast becoming one of the more popular names and
ubiquitously marketed online casinos today is the RTG
powered Rushmore Casino.
