LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Aug. 13, 2013) -

Editors Note: There is an image accompanying this press release.

One very "Appy" winner made history last night, scooping the biggest slots jackpot ever won on a mobile phone - a telephone number sized figure of £1,448,150.01!

The winner, a 50 year-old slots player, landed the 'Big One' playing on his smartphone at PartyCasino's m.partycasino.com site. He was killing time while out and about when he decided to have a spin on his iPhone on PartyCasino's five-reel Melon Madness jackpot slot. Within minutes he was stunned to hit the feature and land 'The Big One' jackpot - finding himself celebrating the most successful slot spin in the history of mobile phones. The mobile win brings a whole new meaning to the term cash-and-carry!

To put the win into perspective, here's what you could buy with £1.4 million:

  • 2,071 top of the range iPhone 5s or if Android is your thing, 2,637 Samsung Galaxy S 4s
  • 100 nights in the Palms® Casino Resort Penthouse, Las Vegas
  • 57,926 deluxe musical baby mobiles
  • 724,075 watermelons – now that really is Melon Madness!

This awesome £1.4 million mobile jackpot win smashes the previous record of £866,000 won in July 2013 and brings the total number of PartyCasino dollar millionaires to twenty-three.

Commenting on the win, PartyCasino's Director of Games Golan Shaked said:

"We are delighted one of our players has hit such an amazing jackpot – and broken the world record for a slots jackpot won on a mobile phone.
