LONDON, April 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
A lucky online casino player from Teesside has become the latest person to win a life-changing amount of money at SkyVegas.com.
DW from Middlesbrough bagged £587,697.86 on Easter Sunday, playing the popular, progressive jackpot slot game, Chests of Plenty.
Over several weeks, the jackpot of the pirate-themed slot game swelled to over £1/2m, making it Sky Vegas' largest non-networked jackpot ever. Unsurprisingly, the game attracted record numbers of bounty-hunting players over the bank holiday weekend.
Speaking of her colossal win, DW said: "When the amount I had won popped up on screen I started shaking uncontrollably and felt utterly sick. It was late at night but I had to tell someone immediately so I called my partner and woke him up. Neither of us slept a wink that night!"
Chests of Plenty is a colourful and easy-to-play slot, which has become one of Sky Vegas' most popular games since its launch in October 2011. It includes a bonus game, during which three treasure chests appear and each one of them reveals three gems. Three identical gems in the same chest trigger a prize. The eye-watering jackpot was landed when all nine gems were revealed to be diamonds, proving that diamonds really are a girl's best friend!
Sky Vegas spokesman, Robert Parker, was delighted to see the mammoth jackpot finally drop : "Huge congratulations go to our winner on landing the progressive jackpot! It is the largest Sky Vegas specific jackpot we have ever paid out and I'm sure it made a nice Easter surprise!"
Chests of Plenty is just one of many fantastic progressive jackpot games available at Sky Vegas.
