Ladbrokes Player Wins King Cashalot Jackpot

Published on: June 2, 2011 

A Ladbrokes online casino player won a staggering £1.5 million on the progressive jackpot of the King Cashalot online slot game. Actually the win was registered about a month back, but due to the mandatory verification that is required after such big wins, the news was just put out in the public domain. Ladbrokes online casino has not disclosed the identity of the lucky winner. No details were given by them except that the player is from Nottingham and has been playing at Ladbrokes online casino for the last ten years. No interview has also been put up at their web site. Not all players like to be in such limelight and it is great to see Ladbrokes online casino respecting the privacy of its members.

According to the Ladbrokes online casino release the million pounds plus win was a cause for double celebration. From April 28 to May 2 Ladbrokes was celebrating the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, as were many online casinos. The Ladbrokes casino Royal Wedding promotion rewarded players with 25% cash back and an additional bonus if the King Cashalot jackpot was triggered. King Cashalot was an ideal slot game for this occasion. It lays out a royal feast with symbols like turkey, fish, pudding and fruits. On April 30 the lucky player got five king symbols on the 9th payline and hit the jackpot.

Hannah Ferguson, Marketing Manager at Ladbrokes online casino said, “King Cashalot certainly lived up to his name with this win. £1.5 million is a massive amount of money so we are delighted it was won by a loyal customer. It’s the biggest win we have had for a while, however with the Mega Moolah jackpot currently over £2.25m we can’t imagine we will have to wait too long before a lucky customer scoops the big one.”

Ladbrokes online casino is powered by software from Microgaming. Mike Hebden, Head of Casino at Microgaming also expressed his delight at this humungous win on behalf of the software provider. He pointed out that Microgaming online casinos pay their progressive jackpot winners the full amount with a single check as soon as the verification process is complete. They did the same when a player won €6.37 million on Mega Moolah in 2009 and they have done so again now. Hebden said that some online casinos pay the progressive jackpot winners in annuities.

Ladbrokes online casino is running other promotions now. There is a special bonus for roulette players up to June 13. Happy hours have been announced in June at their live dealer casino. Ladbrokes online casino is licensed and regulated in Gibraltar.
