    .

    Hopefully it was hit in a reputable Playtech casino.

    The previous big Playtech jackpot was hit at Winner Casino ( Gladiator jackpot).

    Winner Casino is one of the casinos listed in Casinomeister's Not Recommended section because of their unacceptable rules related to payouts of progressive wins (it may take a few decades to get paid).

    You will find the whole list here:

    a few decades, if you are lucky and they don´t go bust before, by the way it´s a good reason to go bust for a shady place

    I took a few shots at this jackpot as well, but knew that ever actually hitting it was mostly a pipe-dream.

    Considering that the average win prior to this was like $800k according to casinolistings, this might have been a great opportunity for someone who happened to have an extra million lying around to gamble. Would be nice.

    I´m quite sure you had a big advantage, when you are consider that the payout percentage at an average jackpot size already is over 97 percent, according the information from Playtech.

    I wagered there much more than 100000 Euros , but I´m not sure how much I lost actually, I played at so many different online casinos and a lot of the money was bonus money.

    So no idea of the winner of this yet? It took less than week for Playtech to give a press release of the 2.4€ million gladiator jackpot. Now it has been over 7 weeks since this 4.7€ million jackpot, the biggest Gold rally, and the 2nd biggest Playtech jackpot ever, was won. Has Playtech missed this PR opportunity because of amateurism? Or are they trying to keep it quiet because this jackpot was won on some casino that had some nutty progressive withdrawal limitations, so that withdrawing this going to take 40-100 years? Because of the Gladiator winner being British, the withdrawal limitations at Winner Casino (aka now as Loser casino because of predatory progressive withdrawal limitations :mad: ) were only mildly predatory, it takes 4 years for him or her to withdraw it totally instead of over 20 it would have taken for non-British. Either Playtech press release guys are total amateurs, or this progressive was won on such a rogue or borderline rogue casino that even Playtech is ashamed, and keep their mouth shut, despite of this being the 2nd biggest Playtech jackpot ever.

    Maybe Playtech keeps the money for themselves or pays Christmas bonuses with it? It is very very strange:confused::what::eek2:

    Wonder if there's any mechanism in place to make sure something like the above doesn't occur (I know casinos usually have some sort of regulating body, even if only a rubber stamp one, not sure if Playtech itself does.) Stranger things have happened, and ~$6 million is quite the incentive, even for a rather large company - if they know they couldn't get caught.

    What I find strange is that there is no PR from the casino where it has been won. You`d expect any casino to see this as an
    opportunity to get some buzz, but not this time. That to me is an indication that something is off.
    Playtech is a reckless operator, to say the least. Wish they could just pay the prog winners themselves, instead of giving
    jackpots to casinos and turning their backs.

    Maybe it was won on some casino which "maximum withdrawal when playing with bonus is 6 x deposit" or similar term, and the casino owners chose to close the shop and retire with the jackpot money. :eek2:

    I searched, but couldn't find anything about this. Very suspicious.

    I DID find out about some poor sod who who $1.5 million on the same game at Titan Casino (Rogue!) in May last year.
    With their ridiculous $10K/month cash-out limit, that guy still has another TWELVE YEARS to wait for the casino to give him the money which NEVER BELONGED TO THE CASINO IN THE FIRST PLACE. :mad:

    Makes me want to vomit! :puke:

    Exactly, who knows where Titan will be next years, nevermind in a decade. The worst part is that they are not only
    cheating the winner, but also the countless people who contributed to the jackpot. Hope this is not Joyland all over again.

    What makes it even more disgusting is that Titan Casino is 1 of 5 Europartners Affiliate casinos, and Playtech owns Euro partners affiliate program and all 5 Euro partners Affiliate casinos have that term.

    It's now over 2 months since this jackpot was won. Nothing related to the jackpot on Playtech press releases.

    In cases of unclaimed lottery prizes, vast majority of lottery programs put the unclaimed prizes back in the prize pool after certain amount of time. Even on those few cases where this doesn't happen, at least the money goes to whatever charitable causes the lottery organization donates to. If there was some clear cheating, multi accounting, etc., from the part of the player, if the Playtech decided to be lame and keep the money or the casino did that rather than put the money back to prize pool, at least they should have integrity to confess that. All lottery organizations release some information from the winner. At least Playtech should tell the winner's home country and the casino where it was won, or give some explanation what happened to the money.

    Playtech need to start taking care of the people who are making them money. It is not enough to merely blame it on the operators. Would be harsh against the operators that do care about their customers, but maybey iff enough players bocoytted all PT outfits for some weeks would put some pressure on PT?

    This is harder to do with this slot than with many other progressives. The biggest issue that there is no autoplay. Also the animation is long and cannot be interrupted, and the max bet is "only" 18 €/£/$. So you can't throw in money as fast and as efficiently and comfortably in this slot than in many other progressive slots.

    Maybe someone tried to do this, and used macros to run this slot 24/7 on several casinos, and was caught and Playtech confiscated the jackpot because of this.

    Anyway, if there was anykind of cheating, it would have been much nicer of Playtech to put the money back to the progressive jackpot.
