Online casino players win big
Two online casino players have become instant millionaires after winning huge progressive jackpots.
The first, a British player, scooped a huge £1.97m prize at Platinum Play Online Casino on 28th December last year, just ten days after registering for an account with the site.
She now intends to take early retirement while also putting some of the money towards a holiday, as well as making donations to animal charities.
Just one week later another lucky winner scooped £1.3m on the Major Millions Progressive Jackpot at Spin Palace Casino, just three days after opening his account.
Both jackpots are powered by developers Microgaming, meaning the players will be paid out in a lump sum.
The Microgaming Progressive Jackpot Network has paid out over €320m since 1999.
The company provide gaming solutions to over 160 gambling websites worldwide, offering over 600 unique game titles and more than 1,000 variants in 24 languages.
