Aspiring Online Poker Player Takes Home the $7.5 million Slot Jackpot

With just a $3 meager wager, a 49 year old family man received a pop-up notification on the video slot screen he was playing that told him he was a$7,525,851 jackpot winner. The man was playing the five reel and 30 pay line progressive slot game called Melon Madness. Since video slots produce randomly generated results, any player can win progressive jackpots regardless of the amount placed as bets and of the winning combination achieved.

Melon Madness features five running progressive jackpots, which grow by the minute whenever a player places bets in Melon Madness and other collaborating video slots. The amount increases because the online casino house automatically adds a small amount to the current cash prize, for every spin made by a player.

This means that if there are about 100 online players on Melon Madness, the online casino adds a hundred times more for every spin that each player makes. Each of the five featured jackpots starts with a particular value and the 'Big One Colossal Cash Jackpot' has the highest starting amount at $1,500,000.

Now that an online player won the prize money, the value has since reverted to its starting amount and is currently progressing into becoming another colossal cash prize.

In reality, the player who won the $7.5 million jackpot was an aspiring online poker player who was trying to qualify for the Montreal World Poker Tour at PartyPoker, another online casino brand of Bwin, PartyCasino's parent company. By some stroke of luck, he decided to play Melon Madness at PartyCasino instead, and received the biggest payout ever made by the online casino.
