An unnamed woman is celebrating after she won an incredible £1.4 million playing Genie Jackpots at the online bingo site Buzz Bingo. The lucky player bet just £2 on the popular slot and according to Buzz Bingo, it is the biggest jackpot ever won at the site.
Unsurprisingly, it is taking a bit of time for the reality of the big win to sink in. Speaking after hearing the news, the player, who is only known as Pottsy25, said:
“I thought I’d won £100k at first but to find out it was over £1.3 million was just another level. We all speak about what we’d do if we won but now it’s actually happened I’m not exactly sure. It hasn’t sunk in yet but I’m just so happy. I do know that I’m going to share some with my brother though and I’d like to buy a bungalow for my mum. My neighbours have been really good to me through a difficult time of loss so I’ll definitely be treating them too. I already had a trip to Skegness booked so I’m going to celebrate there, relax and really think about what else I’ll do with the money.”
Buzz Bingo was quick to celebrate the win with David Evans, the company’s digital director, calling it “mind-blowing”. He said that they “couldn’t be happier” for the player and added, “We absolutely love making winners and as our community continues to grow, we’re so excited to be part of the next life-changing win.”
As mentioned, the Buzz Bingo jackpot was won from Genie Jackpots slot, a popular game developed by Blueprint Gaming, and it is part of the Jackpot King system.
The game features 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines. The theme is based on the fairy tale and it is famous for it’s Aladdin’s film adaptations. The theme is brilliantly brought to life through the game’s graphics, animations and sound effects. The reels are set against a backdrop of a dusky sky and the magic lamp can be seen in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Genie Jackpots has a betting range of £0.20 up to £10 per spin, so you could bet less than the £2 Pottsy25 did and still win a jackpot. It also has an impressively high RTP for a progressive jackpot slot, 96.49%.
On the reels are symbols, including the game’s logo, the genie’s lamp, swords, and a jewel-encrusted turban. There is also a monkey wild symbol; it can substitute for all of the regular symbols to help form winning combinations.
The slot is packed with features. The 3 Wishes Power Spin feature may trigger at random on any spin. You will be asked to pick a lamp to reveal one of four possible rewards. The lamp may trigger one of the two bonus games or it can award one of three modifiers:
The Magic Carpet Bonus is triggered by landing two bonus symbols together with the Magic Carpet symbol. You have to click on carpets to reveal either ‘Advance’ or ‘Collect’. Revealing ‘Advance’ moves the monkey along a trail of flying carpets and you may uncover prizes of up to 1,000 times the bet. Better yet, the Jackpot Genie can appear to give the prizes a boost.
The Mystery Win Bonus begins if you land two bonus symbols together with the Treasure Chest symbol. You will be awarded a mystery prize from the genie’s cave that is worth up to 100 times the bet.
Of course, you are probably most interested in winning the progressive jackpot. The Jackpot King feature can trigger at random on any spin. Once it triggers, you need to collect as many crowns as possible, progress to the Wheel King mini-game, and with a bit of luck, you will become the next big Buzz Bingo jackpot winner. However, even if you don’t trigger the jackpot game, you can still win payouts of up to 50,000x!
The Jackpot King progressive is already rapidly growing at Buzz Bingo and the site offers many more progressive jackpot slots with enormous prizes waiting to be won. More importantly, it also offers top-quality online bingo with huge jackpots, ensuring that everyone has the chance to win life-changing sums of money.
