UK.- Playtech, the giant omni-channel gaming software and services supplier, has set the record for the UK’s largest mobile slot jackpot win after a player on Galabingo.com won €5.89m (US$6.37m) on a £4 spin.

The win sets new records as it is the largest ever on a Playtech network bingo site and the second biggest ever Playtech slot win on a progressive jackpot game. Just in 2015 there was an average of 20,850 monthly and 695 daily Playtech progressive jackpot winners across Playtech’s 70 progressive games, the largest number in the industry. There is currently a staggering £50m (US$71.27m) waiting to be won across the company’s progressive jackpot network of games.

“I picked up my mobile and started playing while I was watching TV,” the winner commented. “Minutes later I saw a huge string of numbers coming up and realised I’d hit the jackpot. I was simply blown away and couldn’t believe I’d won. It’s still sinking in and my family and I are still in a complete state of shock.”
