One lucky PokerStars Casino player netted a €8.1 million prize last week after capturing the main pot of Jackpot King by Blueprint Gaming in the United Kingdom. The payday is the largest prize ever won by an individual in the progressive Blueprint jackpot system.

Unlike other “spin” games of chance, the Blueprint Jackpot King pot grows day by day based on how many players have taken part. Previously, as the pot has topped €5 million, intense scrutiny has been paid to the game.

The Big Win

The exact total of the prize was €8,133,445.23. The winner entered for only a €0.80 stake to take a spin at the jackpot.

“This latest big win epitomises the beauty of Jackpot King and why it continues to be an integral part of an operator’s online casino offering. The progressive pots that offer huge cash prizes are still hugely important to players worldwide,” said Jo Purvis, Director of Key Accounts and Marketing UK at Blueprint Gaming.

The win underscores the potential payoff of the progressive slots model. As Mike Epifani previously reported for “from an odds perspective, your best bet is progressive slots – but there’s a bit more to it than that. Let’s break it down to give you exactly what you need to know to win huge.”

According to research, players are six times less likely to win a traditional lottery like Mega Millions, than they are to win a progressive jackpot slot like Jackpot King at an online casino.
