The largest payout of a casino jackpot has occurred in Spain, with a lucky player winning €1.5m playing the Playtech game Gladiator Road to Rome. The player was playing the popular progressive version of the ‘Gladiator Slot’ at Codere casino when the life changing jackpot amount was hit.
The payout of €1.5m blows away the previous record online win in Spain, which was a €130,000 win playing Playtech’s DC Superheroes, won in May earlier this year.
The win means that the Playtech progressive slot network has paid out jackpot amounts in excess of €7.3m since April 2015.
Global Brand and Marketing Director at Codere, Ángel Fernández, commenting on the win, stated: “Everyone at Codere is very excited to have contributed to one of our clients achieving this win. Gladiator: Road to Rome is a hugely popular game for us, with the progressive jackpot proving a major draw. Many congratulations to our lucky client on their amazing win!”
Playtech’s Chief Operating Officer, Shimon Akad, commented: “Gladiator: Road to Rome has become one of Playtech’s most successful games and characters, and we’re delighted it has created Spain’s first casino jackpot millionaire.”
“Spain is a growing market with significant long-term potential and Codere is a key local partner for us, so it’s a great step forward to have awarded one of their players Spain’s biggest online gambling prize to date.”
