Playtech boosts win to a round $1 million

And Playtech, the gaming giant which developed and supplies the game software, has topped up the winner’s amount by $3,000 to make a nice round $1 million. The Europe-based player has now scooped the largest progressive jackpot ever won on a Playtech Age of the Gods™ slot game.

The winning player said he was playing the game because it had proved lucky for him before.

“It is my favourite game and I have won some smaller amounts on this game. A couple of $50 and $100 (wins). Of course, you dream about winning a million, but until now that was all it was.”
