GIBRALTAR, GIBRALTAR--(Marketwire - June 10, 2010) - http://www.partycasino.com/ the world's largest online casino, can confirm that May was a record jackpot month. During May, PartyCasino.com has paid out more money in jackpots than any other month in its history! The payout bonanza for May up until the end of the 1st June saw a total of $6,429,000 in jackpots over $10k paid out! Not included in these jackpot figures was the fact that the player at the top of the Grand Win Auto leaderboard became entitled to pick up a brand new Maserati Grand Turismo when 'Arkry222' scooped the $1.88 million Gold Mega Jackpot on the 7th May – making it an even bigger month for monster payouts!

A PartyCasino.com spokesman said: "We have never seen a month like it! May was the biggest jackpot winning month in our history – highlights include two massive wins in 24 hours for two players from Belgium. The fateful day was Saturday 29th May when a Palladium Lounge VIP took down The Big One for US$3,057,043, while his fellow countryman 'Silverdxp' took out over $123,000 in jackpots. To add to this, 'Arkry222' scooped US$1.88million jackpot on the Gold Mega Jackpot on the 7th May, sparking the Maserati Gran Turismo payout. If that wasn't enough, another casino player weighed in and won over $685,000 on June 1st!"

"The amount paid out in jackpots in May smashed the previous record set in December 2009. There's a lot more to come though as already the total jackpot amount on the site exceeds $2,300,000, including 'The Big One,' the largest progressive seeded jackpot in the online gaming industry."

One player who was super happy with taking a piece of this record month of jackpots was 'Silverdxp' who took out over $123,000 in jackpots on the same day his fellow Belgian won over $3,000,000. "The win is a life changer for me, I am very much an occasional player," he said. "The world economic crisis has hit my own business hard and this money is going to be vital in helping it continue to operate. It is hard to believe that on the same day a fellow Belgian won over $3,000,000 as well. I suppose I should have played much more that day and that huge jackpot would have been mine!"
