This story was published more than 1 year ago.

A lucky player at Betfair Casino this week hit it big when they hit the Big Time Gaming version of the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megapays Jackpot, taking home a huge €1,036,049.65 cash prize on just a €0.70 bet.

The big win is the first-ever for the Megapays win for the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire version of the game, which hit the market in September of 2020. The game was deployed to Betfair through Relax Gaming's Silver Bullet platform.

The slot is one of several Megapays games out there, each tied with an array of different progressive jackpots. It's won when you advance to the Megapays jackpot round and score matching symbols and fill the side meter.

Commenting on the big win BTG CEO Nick Robinson said, "It was only a matter of time before Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megapays created a real millionaire and it was a nice touch that it came bang on the anniversary of the game's release. This game has got so many plaudits and won so many fans over the past 12 months, and we're delighted that the life of one of those fans has been changed forever."

Relax Gaming CPO Simon Hammon added: "It's always a pleasure to drive differentiation by collaborating on industry-defining games and mechanics. It's wonderful to hear about people who then benefit massively from the titles we bring to market.

"We hope the recent Who Wants to be a Millionaire Megapays winner enjoys this life-changing sum of money to the fullest and that others continue to appreciate the added excitement this jackpot brings."

I saw a news article on this a couple of days ago. That's one fantastic win, to say the least. I think that from all jackpot games, this is one I can see myself playing- design is nice and win potential is exciting. Congratulations to the lucky player!
