MONTREAL, Canada – May 15, 2013 – Amaya Gaming Group Inc. (TSXV: AYA) is excited to announce that their exclusive Millionaire’s Club III progressive jackpot has paid out a whopping €2.8 million to one very fortunate online slot player at Jaxx.com, a member of the mybet Casino Network.
The jackpot was won on May 3rd by a JAXX casino player who managed to trigger it with a meager €5.00 bet. The life-changing €2.8 million win is the 3rd highest jackpot to be paid out in the history of Amaya’s fan favorite, Millionaires Club. It marks the 17th time the jackpot has been hit since it originated in 2004. This Amaya-powered progressive also paid out an immense €3.1 million in June, 2011 and nearly €7.0 million in 2007.
The lucky winner, a 44 year old nurse and mother of two, could not believe her luck. “After work I decided to try my luck in the Casino. When the message popped up telling me I had won €2.8 million, I nearly fainted.” The lucky winner is planning on buying a new house for her family and taking everyone on a nice vacation. “A reasonable amount will of course be put into a savings account” she says with a grin appearing on her face, “other than that the comfortable life can start!” says the 44-year old mother.
“This is fantastic news and we’re delighted to have such a massive win happen on our site,” said Mark Irvine, Director JAXX UK Ltd. “It is a reminder about the high level of excitement that Amaya games generate for our players, and one of the many reasons we love Amaya games.”
“Jaxx has been a partner of Amaya since 2005 and our games have proven to be extremely popular,” said David Baazov, CEO of Amaya Gaming. “We are thrilled that the Millionaire’s Club progressive jackpot has been hit again. This jackpot has paid out over €24 million since it was introduced in 2004, and continues to regularly change lives.”
The chance to win the exciting progressive jackpot in Millionaires Club is available as players advance through a multi-level spinning wheel bonus game – with the third wheel containing the highly coveted jackpot. The jackpot has since been reset to 175,000 coins and began to grow immediately.
