You don’t always need a ship and a map to find hordes of treasure, as one lucky online bingo player found recently as she walked away with an astonishing £627,179 from a tiny £1.40 bet on the online slot game Chest of Plenty at Gala Bingo. The 37-year-old mother of three from Berkshire said: “I am absolutely delighted and can’t wait to treat my family!”
A jackpot 5 reel video slot game, Chest of Plenty has an absorbing pirate theme where players can chose from scatter, wild, stacked and extra wild symbols. There is also a treasure map and treasure chest that act as bonus features. Players can wager as little as 1p up to a maximum of £10 on each payline, meaning nervy beginners and experienced gamblers alike can sit comfortably, investing large or small sums as determined by their luck and bank balance.
On this occasion, it was more a matter of wonderful fortune, as the disbelieving winner only sat down for a quick (inexpensive!) game before turning in for the night. Well, there is little doubt that that was the best decision the lucky housewife ever made. The money from the massive win will go towards a luxury family holiday and a new house, so is life changing in every way.
Encouragingly, this is not exactly the first time Chest of Plenty has paid out large sums to lucky winners. Indeed, in recent months, huge wins worth £310,726 and £587,697.86 have also gone to overjoyed gamers.
The Gala Bingo Marketing Manager says: “We love giving away prizes at galabingo.com and we are thrilled that we’ve had such a big win on our Chest of Plenty game. On average we give away around £60 million a month so we never tire of hearing how even a quick game can deliver a jackpot win. Congratulations to our Berkshire winner!”
