A lucky casino player scoops a whopping GBP 1.45 million playing the popular Melon Madness slot from his iPhone.
Online casino wins happen every minute, big wins happen every hour, jackpot wins happen every day, huge jackpot wins are a little bit rare. But huge mobile casino wins are still a bit of a shock. Just recently a GBP 1.45 million was paid out to a lucky player enjoying his gaming on an iPhone.
The huge win happened on the Party Casino mobile platform. The GBP 1.45 million is the biggest mobile jackpot ever, but considering the rate at which mobile casinos are growing it will not stand long for sure. The lucky winner is a 50-something player who was quietly enjoying an iPhone mobile casino session on his device.
The win is hardly surprising anymore, as both Android and iOS smartphone and tablet sales are reaching new heights, opening up gambling market to new audiences. The Asian market seems particularly attractive with people there being early tech adopters and keen on gaming at the same time.
Casino gambling news reported on a research by Gartner, which showed that smartphones are now representing over 52 percent of the 435 million cellphones sold worldwide in the third quarter of 2013. This figure is a huge 46 percent rise year-on-year. Most importantly 74 percent of that increase came from Asia-Pacific.
