Crown Bingo Pays Out Largest Jackpot to DateOnline bingo giant, Crown Bingo has recently awarded its largest jackpot to date with the conclusion of a particularly large (and lucky) slot game won by Bristol player, Glen Johnson. With the receipt of the huge sum of money, Crown and Johnson have created one of the most impressive good-luck stories to come out of the gambling world in quite some time, drawing plenty of attention and publicity for both parties.
Johnson won his prize at Crown’s Lucky Ladies 88 slot game last month and managed to take home a staggering £240,561 jackpot. The slot was played with only a £2 bet, an amount that increased incredibly as Johnson became the winner of a mounting progressive jackpot. Now Crown has provided Glen and his wife with the sum in a time of particularly dire circumstances. Both the winner and his wife suffer from disabilities that hinder their ability to properly care for their young children. A spinal problem prevents Johnson from being able to share his burden of household chores, an issue that became further exasperated by his wife’s cancer scare around the time of his big jackpot win.
Now Johnson and his wife will be able to purchase mobility equipment, a factor that will greatly improve their ability to care for, and spend quality time, with their children. Glen Johnson had only been a member at Crown Bingo for a little over a week when he sat down to play the slot game of his life.

Full Tilt Poker Become Poker Million SponsorsAn unexpected turn of events has seen one of online poker’s most high profile events, the Poker Million, switch sponsorship and fall under the wing of internet gaming network, Full Tilt Poker. The company will now be in charge of promoting and backing the prestigious television tournament when it kicks off this summer.
The Poker Million was formerly sponsored by UK gaming giants, Ladbrokes but is now moving forward into 2009 with a brand new face. Matchroom Sport’s TV poker tournament entered into partnership with Full Tilt Poker as part of a multi-year contract that should ensure some stability with the event for the foreseeable future. As proof of a well-functioning relationship, the two companies have already released details regarding the launch of the 2009 Poker Million, a tournament slated to take place on July 15th at London’s Sky Sports Studios.
British poker players are apparently delighted to host American professionals in England this summer. Most notably, Roland de Wolfe has compared the Full Tilt/Poker Million union to his “. . . best mate marrying his sister . . .” and gone on record to make boasts about “knocking out” his professional pals from across the pond (specifically, Phil Ivey, Chris Ferguson and edog) before showing them around his hometown.
