Casumo Casino became the online gaming industry's proverbial millionaire maker in April after it crowned not one but two progressive jackpot princes. In scenes that only a Hollywood movie could script, Casumo paid out more than £6 million to two players who spent just £3.50 between them. The flow of big money jackpots started when a 28-year-old fresh off a night shift came home and decided to have a flutter.
A regular at Casumo for a while but rarely playing the progressive jackpot slots, the Swedish spinner quickly saw what he'd been missing out on all those years. Playing the ever-popular Mega Fortune slot, the novice player set his coin value to £0.10 and opened up all 25 win lines for a total stake of £2.50.
With his partner asleep upstairs and his late dinner slowly digesting, things quickly got interesting when the three bonus symbols appeared on reels one, two and three. With the bonus wheel unlocked, all the player had to do was spin the wheel, land on three arrows and reach the central cog to claim the mega jackpot. Never assuming he'd manage the feat, the player made his moves and, thanks to a little help from the progressive jackpot gods, he made it!
As the screen flashed and the realisation he'd won €3,317,639/£2,806,171 kicked in, the lucky spinner had no choice but to wake up his partner and tell her the good news. Of course, when you've just become a newly minted Mega Fortune millionaire, the first thing you do is think about retirement.
Talking to Casumo's PR team after the fact, the young player said that he's going to try life without work for a little while before he starts to do the things he's only ever dreamed of before. What's also nice to hear is that he's planning to use at least some of his money to help both his family and those in need:
"I will be sharing some of the money with my family and I’m also planning on becoming a godparent to a child in need. I want to sponsor some charity organization, but I am not sure which one yet," said the recent winner.
As well as loving online slot games and online casino games, the Casumo customer is also a fan of online poker and sports betting. With a bankroll that's now bursting at the seams, there's a strong chance the mystery man might be flying to the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas this summer to see if he can parlay his recent fortune into another mega jackpot.
With the confetti still on the ground and Casumo's slots abuzz with activity following the 30 March 30, it was almost inevitable that lightening would strike twice. Progressive jackpots might not bear too much resemblance to buses, but when a 30-year-old player rolled in another eye-watering prize just five days later, it certainly felt as though they were.
In a twist (or should that be spin) of fate, Mega Fortune was the bearer of good news, but this time it was with the 'Dreams' mobile slot version. Not wanting to be outdone by his Swedish counterpart, the most recent winner spent just £1 before finding himself on the bonus board. Three bonus symbols on reels three, four and five got the game underway and, just as it happened before, the arrows (and stars) aligned to leave the player €4,621,607/£3,908,431 richer.
That win, just a few strokes before midnight, not only gave the anonymous player the slot surprise of their life, but signalled the largest progressive jackpot ever struck at Casumo. In fact, with two players banking an astonishing £6.7 million between then in less than a week, Casumo Casino now has the honour of crowing a total of five progressive jackpot winners.
Of course, with plenty more money to be had, the site's owners are hoping to make it three in a month by the close of April. With Hall of Gods currently boasting a top prize worth £3.5+ million, another win would certainly be something to write about. In fact, a few more days at its current rate of growth and it might not only be the third win in recent weeks, but another record for one of the rising starts on the iGaming scene.
For now, Casumo Casino can stand tall as the place to play progressive jackpot slots.
