Lady Luck smiled at a 49-year old family man, and stunned him with a pop-up notification on the video slot screen as it congratulated him for winning the $7,525,851 jackpot. The online player placed $3 as bet for a round of spinning the five-reel 30-bet paylines of Melon Madness, a progressive jackpot video slot. Since video slots produce randomly generated results, any player can win progressive jackpots regardless of the amount placed as bets and of the winning combination achieved.
Melon Madness features five running progressive jackpots, which grow by the minute whenever a player places bets in Melon Madness and other collaborating video slots. The amount increases because the online casino house automatically adds a small amount to the current cash prize, for every spin made by a player.
This means that if there are about 100 online players on Melon Madness, the online casino adds a hundred times more for every spin that each player makes. Each of the five featured jackpots starts with a particular value and the “Big One Colossal Cash Jackpot” has the highest starting amount at $1,500,000.
Now that an online player won the prize money, the value has since reverted to its starting amount and is currently progressing into becoming another colossal cash prize.
Actually, the player who won the $7.5 million jackpot was an aspiring online poker player who was trying to qualify for the Montreal World Poker Tour at PartyPoker, another online casino brand of Bwin, PartyCasino’s parent company. By some stroke of luck, he decided to play Melon Madness at PartyCasino instead, and the rest is now part of PartyCasino’s history for being the biggest payout ever made by the online casino.
