Player Wins Beach Life Jackpot & More Top Stories

July 16, 2015

Playtech recently announced details about a UK player who won the Beach Life progressive jackpot just as it had reached a life-changing £3,781,284.34 (which is approximately AU$7,800,000.00). The UK player netted his windfall over at a trusted gambling portal called bgo Casino (

The interesting thing about this story is that Playtech casino games have only been available at since June 11th, 2015. The player, known only as ‘Hilton’, was betting the full 20 paylines when five of the Sun Wild Symbols landed across the 20th payline. If these Wild Symbols had landed across paylines 1 to 19, the player would have only won 100,000 coins instead of the progressive jackpot.

This game also has Sandcastle Scatter Symbols and Treasure Chest Bonus Symbols, the latter of which can trigger an underwater second screen bonus round when three or more show up anywhere in view. It appears as though ‘Hilton’ had the line bet set at 0.50 coins, which means that he was spending as much as 10.00 coins per spin when he won.

Speaking about his win, ‘Hilton’ said, “I'm still in shock. Things like this usually happen to other people. I don't have big plans to spend all the money but my mum and my dad will be getting their bungalow. My nieces and nephews will be getting a good start in life. I'm still shocked.”

The Beach Life pokie is only available in the real money mode and it can now be found in more than 130 different Playtech powered casinos around the world. Some of the best Playtech casinos for Australian players include Fly Casino, Omni Casino and bgo Casino. These trustworthy online casinos are all free to sign up to, they all accept Australian dollars and they are all controlled by some of the most trusted names from the online gambling industry.
