Major jackpot win for bet365 player

Playtech’s Beach Life progressive unloads again  

The UK-based online gambling operator bet365 reports that one of its players has struck it rich on the Beach Life progressive, hitting a jackpot worth GBP 1,506,098.

Player MattC is the latest online gambling instant millionaire, and joined bet365 as a mainly sports betting punter a year ago. Seeking action that was a little different, he moved on to the site’s online casino and played the slots, eventually harvesting his big win on Beach Life.

The player told casino management that he was playing with his sound off and could hardly believe his eyes when the big win notification flashed on his screen.

MattC clearly is a switched on individual, telling the casino that he plans to invest the money in property and venture capital funds, with a little madness by upgrading his wheels to a luxury sports car.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
