Piggy Bank jackpot
Sheriff Gaming’s Piggy Bank slot proves to be lucrative for a casual player from Switzerland.
A 72 year old pensioner from Switzerland playing at the Tropezia Palace online casino made it into
casino gambling news when she took home 90,000 Euros on Tuesday, which is a fairly large sum even by Swiss standards.
Technically speaking of course she did not take anything home, since she was playing the online slotsfrom her home to begin with.
The retired businesswoman named only as Michelle managed to score big on Piggy Bank, Sheriff Gaming’s gangster-themed slot title. The plot in the 3D video slot revolves around a London bank robbery, complete with armed criminals wearing pig masks, helicopters, security cameras, city scenery and other eye candy.
Speaking of eyes, the elderly lady had a hard time believing hers, when all the right symbols popped up. Nevertheless, she has already made some preliminary plans for spending the money.
“I want to spoil the people I love. My daughter will give birth soon, so I want to get her something very special for the occasion. Then I plan on heading out to the end of the world, first class, at a five star hotel, and enjoy a little luxury!”, exclaimed Michelle.
The retiree had began her slots escapade with a 100 Euro initial bet, which she then turned into 750 through getting 3 pigs and a wild. Luck smiled on her when she also triggered a multiplier bonus round. Rolling the right symbols, the lucky player multiplied her winnings by 4, by 6, and ultimately by 5, resulting in a total multiplier of 120 on the 750 Euros.
While congratulating the winner, Eric Roskamp of Sheriff Gaming also confirmed that “the intricacy of the bonus rounds and multipliers has made Piggy Bank a big hit with players worldwide.”
Casino Manager Jean-Pierre Lafitte commented positively on the lady’s luck while also viewing it as a validation of the Tropezia Palace Casino strategy of targeting a wide demographics. “It’s great to see our players enjoy all the games we have to offer, [and our games], as Michelle has proven, are as great fun for the younger as much as for the older generation,” stated Lafitte.
