Today the largest-ever WinADay Progressive Jackpot win took place, as a lucky punter hit the prize for an impressive $329,858, blowing the previous record of $277,480 out of the water.
The jackpot win is the largest ever for the casino and is also the 27th in the history of the prize, which we've been tracking since April of 2010. The jackpot is exclusive to WinADay Casino, which has their own proprietary games. The jackpot grows with each bet placed and is won completely randomly. Traditionally WinADay is very good at releasing details on their big winners, so we're expecting to see something soon.
The game's average jackpot win is $187,072, but the smallest is still an impressive $95,771, and the prize is won roughly every 16 weeks on average.
We'll let readers know as soon as we learn more about the big win.

UPDATE: We have gotten some details on the win, which was hit by James H., a ski technician. James spoke about his win, exclaiming: "I've had some big wins, but they tell me this beats the casino's record. That's kind of insane!"
"We want to go to Europe for the first time and ski in the Alps. We've been saving for that for awhile. I'm also thinking of getting a motorcycle but not sure yet!"
"I play on my phone lots, not usually high bets. But I got over $400 on free spins this time so put up my bet to max. That's when I hit the jackpot!"
