It doesn’t happen every day that a bingo website can claim that one of its players won a multi-million pound prize – but on Sunday the 9th of December Butlers Bingo achieved exactly that. One of their players in the Microgaming slots called the Dark Knight won a whopping £5,883,044.43. The lucky contestant was a Mr John O who resides in Lincolnshire. What’s even better is that John spun the reels on that particular game using a minimum bet of only 30p!
The lucky win happened because of the fact that Dark Knight has a randomly activated bonus round. During this bonus round the player has to spin a wheel and hope that the pointer will come to rest on the Mega segment and not on the Major, Minor or Mini sections of the reel. And this is exactly what happened in the case of John O.
A number of different games at the Butlers Bingo Microgaming range of slots all contribute towards the grand jackpot prize. Sunday’s win is the biggest that any player has ever won up to now. In fact, the jackpot has only been above £5 million four times since its launch. Five months ago a Ladbrokes player walked away with a prize money of £2.6 million.
Those who preferred to play bingo rather than slots at Butlers Bingo are also regularly awarded with high prizes. On the 10th of December at 6pm one lucky player walked away with a jackpot prize of £15,834.41. This came only one day after John O went home with £5.8 million prize money in the slots.
