It seems that for one lucky lady a little spin on a slot game has had quite the life-changing result.
The woman in question is single mum Anne Marie Farrar, who somehow managed to win a huge prize of £3.4 million from a tiny 15p bet on the fun Millionaire Genie Jackpot slot game over at Iceland Bingo.
Whilst playing the progressive slot game she made a tiny wager of just 15p on the slot, then, when the reels had finished spinning she found that she was considerably richer.
Her lucky windfall apparently makes her the second biggest online bingo winner in the UK and it’s the biggest progressive jackpot prize that Iceland Bingo has ever had up for grabs.
When asked what her reaction was to winning a huge cash prize Miss Farrar said that she was completely taken aback at the size of her win and that she was only playing the slot for fun to pass the time. Still struggling to come to terms with her luck Miss Farrar also commented that she plans on: “staying grounded.”
When asked what she plans on spending her massive fortune on, Miss Farrar said she plans on buying a VW Golf and taking her two sons to Disney World in Florida. She also said she’s planning on moving to a nicer flat in Halifax and that she will be returning to her work in a cafe.
Makes you wish we could all be as lucky as her.
How Do Progressive Slots Work?
Progressive slots are one of the best features of an online bingo or casino site; they provide players with massive cash prizes to play for that continually grow over time until someone wins them.
They’re normally attached to some of the most popular games on a site, which in turn incentivizes players to try it out and spend more money on it. Also, the more cash that’s spent on it by players on a site the bigger it will become.
These kinds of jackpot slot games come in all shapes and sizes and they normally have either one or even three progressive prizes to play for. To win either the entire massive prize or a considerable share of it players normally have to land either five Wilds on the reels, or create a specific combination of symbols whilst betting at the maximum amount at the same time.
What makes Miss Farrar’s big win so unique is that she didn’t bet the maximum wager size; instead she only popped in just 15p and the jackpot was triggered at random. So as you can see, she certainly managed to beat quite large odds to take home that million pound prize.
How Does Millionaire Genie Work?
If you’ve never experienced Millionaire Genie before then don’t worry folks, it’s a fairly easy game to play. It’s got a great Arabian Nights style to it as well as five reels and 15 paylines to play around with as well as some pretty unique bonus features.
There’s the Free Spin Bonus that turns the reels for a set number of turns and creates Sticky Wilds to create more ways to win, then there’s the Belly Dancer Bonus which has you choosing chalices to win a multiplier prize.
It’s an incredibly fun game to play and with a progressive jackpot version to play it certainly is one game worth trying out. Also, if Miss Farrar can win such a massive prize for so small a bet, then perhaps you could be the next big winner for this game?
