After almost two months it was confirmed that one player registered at Netbet has won the Siberian Storm Megajackpot, a sum of £1,300,889.76. The slot of IGT, Siberian Storm, has a special version that is all about the progressive jackpot of the game. In fact, IGT has released Megajackpots versions for seven of its games until today including their most famous title, Cleopatra. Megajackpots can be described as a type of lottery within a slot game. A portion of each bet made by a player is added to the progressive jackpot until it “erupts” and lands on the feet of a lucky player.
It’s easily understood that the longer the jackpot piles up “donations” from the players’ bets the more money a lucky gambler can receive, reaching the millionaire status in an instant! When the progressive jackpot is claimed, it resets to a standard value which in the case of Siberian Storm Megajackpots is £500,000.
It comes as no surprise that this type of slots has grown devoted fans around the world as the promise for immediate success is too tempting for the gamblers. Also, it’s not unusual to see consecutive wins of that type in a span of few weeks. For example, in 2015 there was reported that five MegaJackpots wins were noted in a short period of time.
The amounts of progressive jackpots can range from half a million pounds to almost one and a half million pounds. Most of the times the winners aren’t announced immediately but after a couple of months or we may never find out about them. Of course, their personal data remain concealed with regard to their anonymity and safety.
