One lucky winner made PartyCasino.com history this weekend, scooping
the biggest jackpot ever recorded on the site - a whopping
The winner, an amateur poker player, was attempting to qualify for
the Montreal World Poker Tour event on PartyPoker.com when he caught
sight of the Melon Madness jackpot slot game on PartyCasino.com. On a
whim, he decided to play on the five-reel, thirty-line slot and in an
instant he hit the $7,525,851.86 jackpot with only a $3 bet!
The 46 year-old said he was stunned by his win commenting: "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
This single win would put the amateur poker player and married father
of three in 12th place on the all-time list of World Series of Poker
money winners - or to put it another way, outstrip poker legend Phil
Ivey's entire WSOP career winnings!
To put the win into perspective, here's what you could buy with $7.5
-- 3 Bugatti(R) Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse sports cars
-- 9 houses on the same street as Jimmy Choo(R) co-founder Tamara Mellon
-- 37.5 trips to space
-- 75 seats to the WPT(R) World Championship Super High Roller poker
-- 100 private performances of Cantaloupe Island by Herbie Hancock
-- 300 nights in the Palms Casino Resort Penthouse, Las Vegas
-- 1,670,378 copies of Madness's Greatest Hits
-- 2,500,000 watermelons - now that really is Melon Madness!
