Spain – Codere awards Spain’s biggest online jackpot everBy Phil - 28 August 2019
A lucky Codere player has won Spain’s biggest casino jackpot – a €1,510,172.82 payout on Playtech’s Gladiator Road to Rome.
The seven-figure jackpot is more than ten times the size of Spain’s previous biggest – a circa €130,000 win on Playtech’s DC Superheroes Jackpot series in May this year. The record win takes the amount paid out by jackpots by Playtech since April 2015 to €7.3m.
Based on the iconic Oscar-winning 2000 film, Gladiator Road to Rome is Playtech’s sequel to its highly successful original Gladiator slot. The game’s Gladiator Bonus feature, triggered when Helmet bonus symbols appear simultaneously across reels two, three and four, presents players with nine Helmets, all worth different cash prize amounts. Any player lucky enough to land nine gold helmets triggers the progressive jackpot.
Shimon Akad, COO, Playtech, said: “Gladiator: Road to Rome has become one of Playtech’s most successful games and characters, and we’re delighted it has created Spain’s first casino jackpot millionaire. Spain is a growing market with significant long-term potential and Codere is a key local partner for us, so it’s a great step forward to have awarded one of their players Spain’s biggest online gambling prize to date.
“With a portfolio of 80 progressive jackpot games and nearly €198m paid out in jackpot prizes worldwide in just a year, Playtech offers an unrivaled proposition for licensees looking to offer their players exciting gameplay and incredible win potential.”
Ángel Fernández, Global Brand and Marketing Director at Codere, added: “Everyone at Codere is very excited to have contributed to one of our clients achieving this win. Gladiator: Road to Rome is a hugely popular game for us, with the progressive jackpot proving a major draw. Many congratulations to our lucky client on their amazing win!”
