The first of the two was Marcus Goodwin, a very lucky slot machine player that took home a huge prize, of $11,633,898.44, the amount that was won by triggering the Mega Moolah progressive prize. The prize was won at Yako Casino, an online gaming establishment that operates under a Malta license. He won his prize on November 5th, 2016.
Marcus Goodwin commented that he still couldn’t believe that it happened, and that now his life would be changed forever. He plans on buying a big house to live in, plus a smaller vacation cottage. First thing he’s going to do with the money? He’s going to Africa with his family, with first class tickets, as a way to give them a nice present.
The second of the two big winners was Mandy Bowman, and she also triggered a progressive jackpot, earlier this November. It’s a nice story that we get here, of a Bingo player that tries out a slot machine because she wants to change something, and ends up triggering a huge progressive prize from Major Millions, worth GBP 1.2 million. It was won at Glossy Bingo. Mandy is Scottish and she tends to play her games on mobile devices, and usually sticks to the game of Bingo. It’s fair to say that she’s just become a huge slot machine player as well.
She used the GBP 400 winnings from a Bingo game, to try out the Major Millions slot, and she kept playing until she was down to just GBP 3, when she finally triggered the progressive jackpot, on her very last spin before calling it of.
She mentioned to the casino’s representatives that she doesn’t usually gamble much, only tries it out once per month, and only wagers amounts she’s comfortable losing. She already received the money, but she hasn’t decided what she will be doing with it.
