Earlier today the Casino Listings jackpot tracker detected an enormous £990,332 payday for one lucky player on Playtech's Sweet Party progressive jackpot game. The prize works out to be equivalent to €1.26 million or $1.41 million at today's exchange rates.
Sweet Party is a candy themed "reactor" style slot machine where prizes are awarded for matching adjacent symbols either vertically or horizontally. The top prize is awarded when a lucky player manages to land eight or more adjacent striped candy symbols.
It is only the seventh time the Sweet Party jackpot has been won, and only the second time it has been won while wagering the maximum amount of £10 per spin. The game pays out a percentage of the jackpot that scales with the player's bet size, but in this case since the entire jackpot was won we know that the winner was wagering the maximum per spin.
At this early stage we do not know which Playtech casino hosted the winning player. We will update this story as soon as we find out.
