THIS IS A PRESS RELEASE AND/OR ADVERTORIAL
A European Casino.com player has won gaming’s largest ever Omni-channel jackpot on Playtech’s Age of the Gods Live Roulette.

Playtech is a market leader in the gambling and financial trading industries. Founded in 1999 and listed on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange, Playtech has more than 5,000 employees in 17 countries.

The ecstatic factory worker won a whopping £599,380.45 on Playtech’s Age of the Gods Live Roulette that has paid out more than £1 million in jackpot prizes since launching two weeks ago.

The father of three children was at home relaxing and playing Roulette on his mobile after a night shift and hit the big time by unlocking the Ultimate Power Jackpot. This is the highest tier in the four-tier mystery jackpot that links both the Live Roulette product and all Playtech’s Age of the Gods slot games.

The player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, said: “I was crying when I saw the big jackpot amount hit my account and I was in total shock. I have three children and this jackpot will change my life. I'm so happy!”

In an industry-first, aligning with Playtechs progressive jackpot network, the Live game shares jackpot liquidity with Playtechs Age of the Gods Casino suite of slot games while also offering players desktop and mobile Roulette experience.

Due to this Playtech ONE innovation players have the chance to not only win on the table if they hit the right number, combination of numbers or colour, but also to simultaneously win huge cash sums across a four-tier mystery jackpot with every spin of the wheel.

Shimon Akad, COO, Playtech, said: “We continue to drive innovation and our new Age of the Gods Live roulette product is testament to that with the product becoming an instant success.

We are thrilled to see such a big win and we will undoubtedly see even more in the days, weeks, and months to come due to the unique and industry-leading Omni-channel Playtech ONE progressive jackpot network we have across both Live and Casino” he added.

The Live product is the first of many Playtech ONE experience games that will feature jackpot functionality, and one in a whole suite of Playtech products that uses the Age of the Gods brand, including RNG Roulette, and retail and online slot games.

The new game is just one of a host of new experiences, dedicated environments and products to be launched within Playtech’s new studio in Riga, Latvia that opened at the beginning of 2017.

Shelly Suter-Hadad, COO and Managing Director, Mansion, said: “Here at Casino.com we love making dreams come true, so seeing one our players hit such a huge jackpot is incredible! We strive to constantly be innovative and take a conscious decision to deliver a mobile-first approach, so we are delighted to see a record-breaking win on mobile. We hope to see many more of our players enjoy the same great experience in our casino”.
