Three months have gone by since the opening of the Electronic Gaming space, and over $1.3M were awarded in Jackpots. Out of all those happy winners – hundreds, literally! – two individuals stand out by the sheer size of the Jackpot amount that they won. Let’s take a second to relive the excitement!
Largest EGD Jackpots to Date!
On the night of January 16, early in the evening, Luigi was casually playing one of our Quick Hit Platinum Plus games, when his session suddenly took a sharp turn: Luigi hit a HUGE $30,222.70 Jackpot! Our winner-to-be was spinning at 300 credits a pop, or $6, which is the game’s maximum bet. He got himself a few free spins, and one of them unlocked our biggest Jackpot to date!
Some 2 weeks later, in the night of February 1 to February 2, Franco hit our second biggest EGD Jackpot to date! He was playing Eternal Lotus, betting $8.80 per spin, when four identical symbols appeared on his screen, along with this message: JACKPOT! CALL ATTENDANT / 28,791.93 CAD. Franco is well known at Playground as an experienced poker player and an all-around gentleman. He has been rounding our poker tables since the first year!
Quadruplets Meet Royalty
Last week, another long-time rounder had an amazing day… on the poker side! Joey was holding the third-best starting hand, pocket queens. His ladies connected with the board to complete quad queens, but were beat on the river by John’s royal flush! Joey was the big winner of 40% of the Primary Bad Beat Jackpot, which netted him $178,586!
Last night at 8:58PM, Danielle De Sève was playing 88 Fortunes, a game with amazing artwork that offers progressive Jackpot levels. She hit the Grand Jackpot while in Free Game mode; it had grown to $13,136.21! The whole room was offered Champagne and confetti flew! Congratulations Danielle!
On the poker side, already three Jackpots have hit in March. EGDs can award a Jackpot at any moment. The St. Patrick’s weekend is around the corner, and Playground is where you may find your pot of gold! We have your game… come for a spin!
