Yesterday the biggest casino software provider Microgaming announced the winner of the Grand Slam Slots tournament, the lucky guy is a Ladbrokes player, alias Pattoned, who walks out with 1 mill Euros.
This tournament is the first of it's kind and as I know Microgaming they'll probably do it again soon. The tournament odds are much better then in lottery, only 1:9000 what makes this event very attracted by many online gamblers that wanted to put their hands on that ticket.
Commenting on the win, Pattoned said: “ I’m ecstatic to have won and can’t quite believe it yet. I’m absolutely stunned! What will I do with the money? Who knows; we’ll have to wait and see! ” When questioned further on whether he plans to quit work on the back of the massive win Pattoned went on to say: “I’m not thinking about leaving work at all, I absolutely love what I do and want to continue it for as long as I can”.
Mike Hebden, Casino Channel Lead, Microgaming said: “The tournament has certainly lived up to expectations and generated a tremendous buzz amongst the online slot playing community. We are delighted to have been the power behind the biggest ever online slot tournament and offer our congratulations to Pattoned on this historic win.”
It's great the the casinos are doing also ruffles like that which bring more opportunities to gamblers to win big prizes on top of the regular well know Progressive Jackpot.
