Progressive casino games are the most exciting to play due to the fact that at any second you may be the lucky winner of millions of dollars. In general, online slots are the most popular and frequently played games and as such they also produce the most millionaires, with other progressive casino games rarely producing big winners. There is however an exception to every rule and a recent win in excess of $2 million dollars paid out on a progressive online roulette variant at Casino Tropez.
On the 10th of March 2013, Casino Tropez paid out lucky winner Leonid (an alias) a whopping $2,034,464 when he hit the jackpot on the Playtech powered French Roulette progressive. Just prior to this massive win, the same game also paid out a generous €56,444 to Sylvia, a regular winner on the casino’s winners list.
Of all of the roulette game variations offered by Casino Tropez, namely European, French and American Roulette, French Roulette offers player the highest average return thanks in part to the La Partage rule as well as other special betting options within the game that make it a more competitive option with increased odds of winning than its European and American counterparts.
Other table games it seems have also been paying out at Casino Tropez this month with Scott winning $54,396 on the 10th and a massive $267,466 the very next day on the 11th of March at the craps tables.
The month is still young, so if you’re a table games fan you could just be the next lucky winner! Head on over to Casino Tropez for all of the action and more of the rewards now!

We’ve been following the ever increasing Beach Life Progressive Jackpot for quite a while now and on the 12th of February 2012 the massive Beach Life Progressive Jackpot totalling $8,211,488 was hit.
While the lucky player and the casino where the jackpot was hit are yet to be revealed, the win definitely occurred and players saw the machine reset to 50,000 coins on Sunday, which we’re sure broke many other players hearts.
For those who are interested in the statistics of this progressive slot, this huge win has altered the average payout figures quite dramatically. Over the last five wins the average payout has increased to over 2.6 million credits and the average duration between hits has extended to 163 days. This being said though, the Beach Life Progressive is one of the most erratic jackpots on the web and over the last four years has hit from 200,000 to a whopping 4,200,000 and most recently 8,200,000, so it’s still one of the most rewarding slots to play.
So if you’re in the mood for some summer fun with an ever increasing jackpot pool, why not play the Beach Life Progressive Slot at your favourite Playtech powered casino like Europa Casino today.

They say that lightning doesn’t strike in the same place twice, but it certainly did for one lucky Finnish couple who each won jackpots within a month of each other when playing at Casino Euro.
The husband and wife team Päivi and Marko both share a passion for playing at online casinos and both love the Super Lucky Frog Online Slot, and true to its name the game proved very lucky for each of them on two separate occasions where they were rewarded with close to €80,000 each in jackpot wins.
The couple was recently flown to the Casino Euro headquarters in Malta to meet the casino’s management and share their story which goes like this:
Marko signed up at Casino Euro six months ago after seeing a TV ad advertising the casino’s 100% up to €100 welcome bonus. He enjoyed it so much that his wife, Päivi decided to join him, finding that she enjoyed playing online just as much.
A few months after joining the casino, Päivi was playing one of her favourite games, Super Lucky Frog slot and hit the jackpot…her screams were apparently so loud that neighbours ran over to find out what was happening. Then unexpectedly, less than a month later Marko was playing Super Lucky Frog and hit the jackpot too! Of course, friends and family could not believe the couples luck, and Marko and Päivi are overjoyed.
When asked what they plan to do with their winnings the couple stated that they would pay off their debt, renovate their home and perhaps indulge in a nice holiday.
Talk about lucky!
Friday the 22nd of October was a lucky day for a retired carpenter from Norway when he hit the whopping €4 million Mega Fortune Progressive Jackpot at Casino Euro after spending just €30!
He is Casino Euro’s third official millionaire and is of course ecstatic to claim that title. According to the man he decided to play a low stakes round on the progressive machine, only depositing €30, he didn’t even have to do anything as he was using the auto-play feature and once the reels stopped he had won €4 million. He could hardly believe it at first and once the reality of his win sank in he called for his wife as he felt like he was going to faint.
This is one of the largest jackpot wins in recent times but jackpot pools are set to get bigger as increased numbers of people play online.
Casino Euro is owned and operated by the Betsson Group and has reportedly experienced a surge in older players playing casino games online and has extended their congratulations to their latest millionaire who is now assured of truly golden years thanks to his win.
Euro Partners is a well known casino operator which runs Europa Casino, Casino Tropez and Titan Casino. This group always has generous promotions up for grabs, but their latest one is way more novel than what we usually see at this group and is definitely one for beer lovers.
They are currently running a promotion in which one of their players will win a year’s supply of beer in celebration of Oktoberfest. Their “Free Beer for a Year” promotion takes place from the 23rd of September until the 6th of October 2010.
If you can’t actually join the 6 million people who celebrate Oktoberfest by drinking beer, enjoying great German food and having all out fun in person, you can cash in on the fun at Europa Casino, Casino Tropez or Titan casino by trying to earn as many comp points as possible to win their “Free Beer for a Year” prizes.
As any seasoned player knows, comp points are earned automatically when real money is wagered on any of the casino games available at these properties. So all you have to do is play, and you could end up being paid in beer…sounds like every guys dream!
We’ve heard many things in our day, but a player not wanting to collect a supposedly “unlucky” jackpot has to be a first!
Chinese player “Mr C” as he is known, won the WowPot Slot Jackpot of £4,444 at Jackpot City Casino earlier this month. Although the player was initially ecstatic at his win, he later refused to claim it, apparently concerned that the amount won was “unlucky” and an ominous signifier of death.
According to Chinese culture, the number 4 is pronounced like the word for death and is therefore a very unlucky number, so put four 4′s in a row in a jackpot and the superstitious in the culture are sure to be concerned.
Terry Maverick, the spokes person for Jackpot City stated that the player had contacted the casinos customer service department regarding the amount and while he doesn’t want to lose the money, he fears it will bring bad luck upon himself or his family if he accepts it. Casino personell are currently talking to the player in order to ascertain how the situation would be best handled to ensure a happy outcome for him.
While many gamblers are notoriously superstitious and stories abound of lottery winners who subsequently suffer from bad luck, this is believed to be the first real life instance of a player refusing to accept their winnings from an online casino.
It was recently reported that the ever popular online payment method, PayPal will be renewing its full service offering to selected online casinos. This means that players frequenting its casino partners properties will be able to pay and play using PayPal.
The decision comes nearly a year after the processor withdrew from the world of online casinos, reportedly due to the instability of the industry at the time. However it was also reported that its parent company Ebay had been accused of violating United States law whilst transferring funds to offshore gambling websites which was probably the major cause for the company’s hasty departure, although the company did still maintain industry ties with 888.com by using payment processor Neovia’s Netbank system.
According to reports, Ladbrokes and 32Red were the first groups to establish new partnership agreements with PayPal, however it is also apparent that Virgin Casino has recently reached an agreement with the payment provider and it seems more will follow.
PayPal offers players safety and convenience when affecting financial transactions online and their re-entry into the online gambling arena is one that will be welcomed by many of their loyal customer base which generates over $2 billion in revenue annually.
