The female 32Red VIP player sat down in front of her PC at her Australasian home late on Tuesday evening to play at her favourite online casino. Unbelievably, she had visited 32Red 32 times since joining and within a few minutes, she was an instant millionaire as the five King Cashalot symbols slotted into place – bagging £1,000,641 ($1,987,698) for a bet of only £2.25!

CEO and founder of 32Red, Ed Ware was overjoyed by the news of the jackpot win, which will go down as one of the biggest in history. Ed Ware said of the win, "Everyone at 32Red is delighted at the good fortune bestowed upon one of our players. For this to be one of the biggest ever wins online is just amazing. Add to that it is the 32nd time she has played at 32Red, you have to say that 32 really is a lucky number for her!"

Ware continued to say that this online slots win came at the perfect time, "Not only is this the biggest ever online jackpot win at 32Red, more importantly it means that our customer can now celebrate Australia Day this Friday in style!"

The lucky player said of her win, "I still can't believe it. I don't think it has sunk in. I'm numb! I remember almost in slow motion how the kings dropped into place and the jackpot window appeared. I'm still finding it difficult to believe that such good fortune could happen to me. Thank you 32Red!"

King Cashalot is just one of over twenty progressive jackpots available at 32Red, all of which are part of the Microgaming Progressive Jackpot Network - the largest online progressive jackpot offering on the internet.

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming said of the win.

"This latest King Cashalot payout is the highest sum ever won on the Microgaming Progressive Jackpot Network and delivers our eleventh millionaire in less than four years. Our progressive has paid out over $225m in winnings during this period and with the Mega Moolah progressive now sitting at over a million dollars, it won’t be long before there is another player joining the millionaire club."

The news of this record-breaking jackpot win comes only days after 32Red was named, ‘Casino of the Year’, for the fourth year in succession by the online casino industry watchdog and player advocate Casinomeister.
