Sportsbet.io, the well-known international sports betting website and online casino, has announced that one of its customers has hit a huge slot jackpot worth no less than 42 million dollars.
The respective player was placing bets in USDT (Tether) cryptocurrency on Wheel of Wishes, one of the most popular slot games delivered by Alchemy Gaming, and the major jackpot dropped on December 20, 2023.
The enormous prize was one of the progressive jackpots offered in Games Global’s WowPot program. Jackpots within this brand start at 2 million euros and grow to much larger proportions as a part of each bet made on the game gets added to the prize pool.
Sportsbet.io also announced that the winner desired to remain anonymous, but did share some thoughts with the bookmaker’s representatives. The lucky customer revealed that he could not believe his eyes when the spin landed. “At first I thought it was a mistake,” the lucky player said, but revealed that later the fact that he won over 40 million dollars sank in and prompted him to start “running around the room shouting and celebrating.”
The winner said that he has not yet decided what to do with the money, revealing that he was not ready to make “any big decisions just yet.” However, he did say that one thing is certain: his family “will never have to worry about money again.”
Not In a Million Years
The lucky Sportsbet.io customer revealed that he was just relaxing by playing a few spins on his favorite online casino and that he was not expecting that moment to change his life, “not in a million years” he said. “I’ve been playing with Sportsbet.io for years,” the player added, “and it has proven to be the best decision I’ve ever made.”
Alex Haig, Director at Sportsbet.io, congratulated the lucky winner and underlined that this was the largest ever prize won on a single spin on an online slot game. “We couldn’t be prouder to see a Sportsbet.io player win the biggest prize in online slots history,” the Director added while also revealing that the player was able to withdraw his huge prize in less than 90 seconds.
In addition to the vast amount of money, the winner will also be treated to a flight to London for dinner with the Sportsbet.io team and also to VIP tickets to a football match at Newcastle United, a Premier League club which has the online sportsbook as one of its official partners.
