'gamago' Hits Record partycasino.com Gold Mega Jackpot and Makes Online Gaming History

$45 SPINS UP TO $4,978,336.62 ON THE MEGA FORTUNE WHEEL!

GIBRALTAR, GIBRALTAR--(Marketwire - Dec. 8, 2009) - The Gold Mega Jackpot at http://www.partycasino.com/, sister site of http://www.partypoker.com/, has finally been hit and one lucky player is a staggering $4,978,336.62 better off! The jackpot was by far the biggest in the industry and is a landmark for the world's largest online casino!

The lucky player is 'gamago,' a member of the PartyGaming VIP Club, the Palladium Lounge, http://www.palladiumlounge.com/ from Germany. He was delighted by his record breaking win.

"I was so shocked when I won the jackpot and the news still really hasn't sunk in! I have to say I had my eye on the big jackpot but I really don't play aiming for them, I play for fun. I have won $50,000 and $100,000 jackpots before but nothing on this scale. It is unbelievable that one spin has given me nearly $5 million!"

The fateful spin came at 20.42ET on December 2nd. The stake was $45 on popular PartyCasino.com Gold Mega Jackpot game, the Mega Fortune Wheel. The screen exploded with congratulations and colour as 'gamago' turned $45 into $4,978,336.62!

Clearly, nearly $5 million is a life changing amount of money but 'gamago' has no real view on what he is going to be doing with this record windfall. "To be honest, I don't have any plans on what I am going to do with the money as yet."

A PartyCasino.com spokesman said: "We would like to congratulate 'gamago' on taking down this monster record Gold Mega Jackpot and making online gaming history. We assumed the jackpot would reach $5 million and stated as such but this record Gold Mega Jackpot hit shortly after we published those fateful words! 'gamago' is a valued member of the Palladium Lounge and we wish him well with his newly found mega riches!"
