Craig from Derby pockets three jackpots in eight weeks playing for record £2.6m Sky Vegas prize pot
A proud dad to be from Derby has beaten the odds to win three jackpots in just eight weeks totalling £7,302.68 playing slots on Sky Vegas. One of nostalgic gamer Craig’s triple wins came from a 60p spin on his favourite Worms: Reloaded slot, which netted him the £2580.84 ‘Royal Pot’ – part of a whopping ‘Jackpot King’ that has just today broken the record for the biggest ever Sky Vegas cash payout as it passed the £2.6 million mark for the first time ever.
Just a few weeks on from his first jackpot surprise, Craig landed his unbelievable hat trick with two more wins on another nostalgic favourite, Count Duckula, banking £2120.92, followed by a further £2601.10.
The still swelling Jackpot King currently stands at nearly £1 million more than the amount paid to the most recent Sky Vegas millionaire Scott Clysdale, a builder from County Durham, who pocketed £1,632,481.71 from a £1 stake in August 2016 in just 23 minutes. Online play has now reached fever pitch as the Jackpot King has beat the amount won by biggest Sky Vegas winner, Dave Robson, a Civil Servant from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, who took home £2,642,668.61….and is still rising.
Players at Sky Vegas not only have the chance to hit a huge £2.6 Million win, but their Royal Pot is currently dropping 2-3 times per day at an average of £2.7k per player, and the Regal Pot drops on average at £27k. Since December, Sky Vegas has now given away over £1 MILLION from these two lucky pots alone, to players across the UK and Ireland – and Craig is one of those winners.
“Prior to November 2016, I hadn't played Sky Vegas for a while but saw the launch of a 'Jackpot King' promotion and thought I'd give it a go.
Nostalgia drew me to Worms: Reloaded and on my first day back to your site, I had rolled in the small jackpot of just over £2.5K. I couldn't believe it, I actually logged off then logged back in 10 minutes later to check I wasn't dreaming and there it was in my balance!
I withdrew it all, had a very good Xmas then nostalgia drew me back again in the New Year when I saw the Count Duckula slot.
I had a few spins on Count Duckula and I hit the Rapid Jackpot for just under 3K, it felt like a 2nd Xmas!
A week after this 2nd win we found out that we are expecting our first child and the money from Count Duckula would go a long way to paying for the cost of getting all the things we needed.
Not 10 days later I hit the Rapid Jackpot AGAIN on Count Duckula... This time our intention is to spend the winnings on a holiday before the baby comes along as we probably won't get much of a chance to get away when he or she arrives!
Overall the Jackpot King promo and Count Duckula games are great as the slots are packed full of features and you never know what might happen at any minute. I never thought I'd win a jackpot so to win 3 in just 2 months is incredible and shows that it really can be done!”
A great selection of games are linked to the Sky Vegas Jackpot King pots, since the launch of Top Cat and Slots O’ Gold, Sky Vegas’ selection has grown to include 8 slots and a new and exclusive Deal or No Deal Scratch Card.
Sarah Hackett, a spokesperson from Sky Vegas, said;
“We find players love to play big branded games like Deal or No Deal and Top Cat as they bring back memories - who doesn’t remember playing Worms or watching Top Cat? That’s why at Sky Vegas we try to bring players great game content. Deal or No Deal scratch card recently joined our Jackpot King games, and we’re hoping players will love it just as much as we do!”
