Slot Machine Jackpot Outdoes UK LotteryPublished October 29, 2009 by OCR Editor
Never before has this happened. 888's new Pirate Millions slot machine offers a staggering jackpot of almost 9 million British pounds.
For the first time ever, an online casino company is offering a slot machine jackpot bigger than that on offer by the UK national lottery, according to gambling blog Calida Gaming.
According to the blog, 888 is offering a jackpot of 8,888,888 pounds ($14.6 million) on its new Pirate Millions slot machine, significantly higher than the current estimated lottery jackpot of around 7 million pounds.
To promote the new slot, 888 is offering players their first three spins for free.
The offer marks a new all-time high for online slot machine jackpots, which have been steadily rising in the last few years.
The days when jackpots failed to reach even $1 million are a thing of the past, and we will no doubt be reporting very soon of 888's mark being broken and of a new record being set.
