Life-Changing Mobile Progressive Jackpot Wins on the Rise

Mobile casino sites, dedicated casino applications and even mobile-first casinos are taking the web by storm in 2017 as mobile devices engulf an even larger portion of our attention. This growth in mobile gambling has sparked a boom in mobile jackpot wins as more and more players win life-changing progressive jackpots using their phones and tablets.

Researchers from the US-based firm 'dscout' published a study in 2016, titled Putting a Finger on Our Phone Obsession - Mobile Touches: A Study on Humans and Their Tech, which revealed the average person touches their phone 2,600+ times in a single day. That equates to over 1.12 million times a year we touch our phones on average.

With those shocking numbers expected to gradually increase as mobile technology continues its boom, it should come as no surprise the number of massive progressive jackpot wins on mobile devices is on the rise as well. It would make sense that if everyone is using their mobile devices more and more, especially to gamble online, the chances of landing a unthinkable jackpot on-the-go sky-rocket!

Mobile Gambling Takes Center Stage

The need for a quality mobile presence as a top online gambling website emerged years ago when mobile devices began their rise to prominence. The world's biggest online gambling sites were forced to develop mobile access for their digital products so players could enjoy the complete online betting experience while on-the-go.

Next came dedicated mobile applications for players to download directly to their mobile device for instant access to the casinos' full suites of mobile-friendly games. But the trend towards mobile gambling hasn't stopped there; some of the latest casinos to hit the web are calling themselves "mobile-first", developing their sites for mobile devices, ignoring desktop-friendly features.

And thanks to this mobile gambling boom, these recently launched mobile first casinos, like Fable Casino, have already dulled out millions in jackpot winnings. According to Fable's site, they've dished out over £3.2 million in jackpot winnings since its inception in 2016, a shocking number to those unfamiliar with just how often these jackpot wins are happening on-the-go.

Players Win Fortunes Spinning on Their Phones

Progressive jackpot slots offer players the chance to win a truly life-changing sum of money from a single spin. Without wagering your life away on a shrewd punt or risking it all on a hand of poker, players have the opportunity to win millions off a small wager on a single spin of a slot game. Progressive slots that have been adapted for mobile gameplay offer the same chance but while on-the-go.

Since the development and launch of mobile-friendly progressives, players have started racking up the jackpot wins while playing on phones and tablets. LeoVegas, considered the world's number one mobile casino, has crowned a few record-setting millionaires who won spinning from a mobile. One lucky LeoVegas winner even pulled home a huge sum while sitting in the loo (or "bathroom" for the non-Brits)!

The world record for largest mobile jackpot ever won sits at a whopping £8 million, set in April of this year. The player was enjoying the "millionaire-maker" - or so it is called - Mega Moolah slot game. Mega Moolah, the top progressive slot from Microgaming, has crowned a wealth of millionaires including the a few different record setters. Its adaptation to mobile devices has allowed for players to enjoy the game from anywhere, only upping the jackpot pool.

Now, the record for progressive jackpot win on a browser [£17 million] is still more than double the current record for a mobile jackpot win but the fact that there is competition is something an online gambler might not have even considered a few years ago prior to the mobile gambling boom. Players do not simply have a shot at winning millions from a mobile jackpot anymore, it's actually a reality for some players. If you want this to become your reality, head over to LeoVegas today to try their mobile progressive slots!
