Paddy Power Pays out Big Jackpot on Mars Attacks Game
Paddy Power is one of the biggest and most popular gambling websites in the world, working with a host of top developers to provide great games, big jackpots and more. This week one of their big jackpots, provided by Blueprint Gaming title Mars Attacks, was claimed to the tune of £4.3 million, creating yet another delighted Paddy Power player.
The Big Win
The £4.3 million wins were scooped by a player from Northern Ireland, just over the border from where Paddy Power was founded. Thirty-three year-old Sean Doyle had all the luck of the Irish on his side when he entered the Jackpot King Deluxe feature and claimed this life-changing sum.
The game is built around Blueprint Gaming’s progressive jackpot system, which is used across several different titles. The Gaming Commercial Director of Paddy Power, Mike Phelan, noted that the Blueprint progressive jackpot system was a “key component” of what Paddy Power was offering right now, helping to “raise excitement levels” and to “deliver increased revenues”.
The game itself, Mars Attacks, is a recent release based on the 1996 film of the same name. The video slot is every bit as quirky and eccentric as the film, and it came off the back of a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. The slot has several great features in addition to the progressive jackpots and has proved to be very popular with players since its release.
Nostalgia no doubt has a part to play here, as one of the biggest online gambling demographics is millennials, and this age group would have just been coming of age during the initial release of Mars Attacks. But, make no mistake about it, the big win potential of the progressive jackpots has had more of a role to play and following this huge jackpot, countless more players will no doubt be waiting to try the Mars Attacks slot for themselves.
