Massive Gladiator Jackpot Breaks Record

October 30, 2013

 

Progressive jackpots create the largest prizes available in the online casino industry. Players from all over the world come together on a daily basis to play popular progressives in hopes of winning a life-changing sum of money. Playtech has created a lot of popular progressives, and they tend to hit on a fairly regular basis. Recently, one of their most popular progressive slots had a big winner, and it even broke the previous record for the largest jackpot ever for that slot. This is an awesome win, and we're very happy for this lucky player.

The Gladiator jackpot was hit recently, and it was worth €2,374,847.22. This is the largest jackpot that Gladiator has ever paid out, so it's easy to see why it's worth celebrating. The lucky winner picked it up at Winner.com, and since it's a networked progressive jackpot, it was even bigger than if it would have just been confined to a single online casino.

Playtech's Casino Head Amir Askarov said, "I congratulate the lucky player on this astonishing jackpot win on Gladiator Jackpot. Playtech is honored to offer players prizes on this scale through our highly valued licensee — Winner.com. We take pride in the strong content and features of our slots and jackpots and are delighted to continually offer our players the opportunity to win huge prizes through our expanding games portfolio."

Gladiator has won a number of awards, and it's an extremely popular video slot. There's a cool free spins bonus feature with extra wilds and scatter symbols added on. There's also a special Gladiator Bonus where you'll get special payouts if you get three wilds on the reels at the same time. You're guaranteed at least a 9x payout times your entire bet, and it can be as high as 45x.

To say that Playtech is a popular software company for online gambling would be an understatement. A lot of experts believe that they are the single largest casino software developer to ever exist in the business, and it's hard to argue with that assessment. Playtech puts out a ton of top games, and many of these offer huge progressive jackpots. Gladiator is a great example of a top progressive jackpot that pays out huge sums of money to lucky winners, and it's one of Playtech's best. Keep an ear out because Playtech will likely have a lot of progressives hitting during the busy holiday season.
