Man Hits $7.5 Million Melon Madness Jackpot At Party Casino

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

A 46 year old punter won $7,525,851.86 while playing the Melon Madness slot at Bwin owned Party Casino.

The man was on the site attempting to qualify for the Montreal World Poker Tour when he decided to take a bit of a breather and play the Melon Madness slot. The man put just three dollars into the game before the record setting jackpot was triggered. The huge win is the largest ever taken at Party Casino, and the 22nd million dollar plus jackpot.

Commenting on his big win the new multi-millionaire said: "Two years ago I left my job after 23 years and decided to try my hand at poker. I was trying to win a seat to the WPT on PartyPoker, I had $21 left over after registering for the tournament and thought I would try my luck on their sister site PartyCasino. I was thinking maybe I could double up and register for another poker tournament. After a couple of spins, I hit the big one! The pop up on the screen was saying I won over 7 MILLION! I thought to myself, wow, it took me 2 years to realize that I'm a mediocre poker player and only 2 or 3 spins to realize that I'm really, really good at slots! Thank you PartyCasino."
