Online gambler 'Arkry222' is probably still celebrating his good fortune after hitting a $1.8 million slots jackpot win at Party Casino earlier this month. The 48-year-old player, who works on a horse ranch, won $1,888,198 on the internet casino's Gold Mega Jackpot slot - all from just a two-dollar spin on its Super Star game. And because the Gold Mega Jackpot was tied into the Grand Win Auto leader board promotion, his fortune saw another player rewarded with a new Maserati Gran Tourismo car.
"It was a Friday night and I wasn't far off going to bed and I was sat at the computer," said 'Arky222' this week.
"I actually had the volume turned down on the computer as I had the television on. I was playing Super Star and all of a sudden these squares came up. I hit 'complete' and the screen lit up in loads of colour. Then the number appeared on the screen. I have never seen so many numbers in my life; it was like an international phone number!"
As the realisation seeped in that he had just won a life-changing sum of hard cash, the player stare at his computer screen in disbelief. "I was numb," he recalls.
"I was on a different planet. It was then that I realised that I had missed a call from the VIP team at Party Casino and it started to sink in a little bit more. I hadn't been feeling well all week but now I was just in this strange kind of happy limbo. I went back into my account and there it was, over $1.8 million.
"I think I am going to have to spend the money on a holiday, a new car and a new house," Arky222 told casino management. "It will also allow me to be become more flexible with my working hours as I am going to go freelance."
The Grand Win Auto leader board promotion was due to run from May 6 to 19 and was based on the concept that the player sitting at the top of the board when the Gold Mega Jackpot was hit would be awarded with the new Maserati car or a cash equivalent.
"It didn't hit me until the next day that by winning the Gold Mega Jackpot someone else had won a Maserati," said 'Arky222'. "All I can say is to enjoy your drive, mate, and get in touch. Fancy taking me for a spin?"
