The librarian, whose name was kept a secret, will receive a massive £4.5m cash prize, equivalent to the amount of the average salaries received for 170 years. Gala’s latest winner played from her smartphone, spending just £4 to make the lucky spin. So far, this is the biggest win from mobile bingo and the second largest for Playtech.

It seems like 2016 is going to be extremely successful for Playtech and they will continue firming their positions of one of the leading game-software companies. In 2015, Playtech gave away no less than 695 progressive jackpots which making them one of the major software providers with the largest prize pools and the biggest prize giveaways. Gala Bingo, who’s lucky player has recently scooped the record-breaking jackpot, is part of the biggest bingo network in the UK. Also, it is one of the most popular brands, powered by Virtue Fusion, the bingo arm of Playtech. The brand director of Gala Coral Bingo, Alison Digges, announced she’s happy from the fact that the jackpot went to one of their loyal players while playing one of their most preferred slots. Gala’s brand director also added that their omni-channel platform grows in popularity among their players which is another factor for their growing success.

Well, back to the lucky winner – she has been a loyal member of Gala bingo for the last three years. The night she hit the mark was just like any other night, she explains. She decided to take a spin on one of her favourite slot games, ‘Jackpot Giant’ and almost couldn’t believe her eyes when the giant number appeared on the screen of her smartphone. At first, she refused to believe it, but once she came to her senses, she felt blessed about the winning. She lives in Glasgow and works as a librarian in a local library. Even though she’s now a multi-millionaire, she refuses to leave her job. She can now afford a luxury life, without the need to work anymore but instead – she went back to work the very next day. This woman is the living prove that not all gamblers act the same, flittering away their winnings. Just the contrary – she claimed that she wouldn’t spend her money on a bohemian life. When asked about her plans with the prize… well, the lucky lady still has no plans. Maybe she will try another spin…Who knows?

This win sets a new record for the biggest amount ever won on a Playtech bingo site and it’s also the second largest jackpot, scooped from a Playtech slot. The previous winner who still keeps the record won £6.2 on the ‘Beach Life’ slot in 2012. We do encourage our players to explore the variety of games on the site and chance your luck!
