Betfred Casino Awards Player with the UK’s Largest Progressive Jackpot Prize

An anonymous member has just received an enormous windfall that made them much, much richer while also setting the record for the United Kingdom’s largest progressive jackpot prize.

The life-changing jackpot provided the unknown Betfred player with some £5.1 million, an amount awarded after the site member had staked only £1 on a slot game. The anonymous player sat down to a game of Beach Life and, after only six spins of the virtual slots, had triggered the staggering progressive jackpot — an amount that had been steadily building in size before being won. With such a large prize needing to be claimed, the winner was required to receive the multi-million pound cheque in person from Betfred’s founder Fred Done, receiving a trip aboard Done’s private jet. Even more extraordinary is the anonymous player’s earlier luck. Before winning the £5.1 million Beach Life jackpot, s/he had scored £250 through the King Kong slot. Later in the day, the winner became the recipient of the third largest progressive slot jackpot in the entire world.

Done spoke to press about the milestone jackpot, describing his enthusiasm as a bookmaker for “turning someone into a multi-millionaire at the click of a mouse” while adding that “it just goes to show it’s always worth trying your luck.” Players who want to take a shot at winning their own fortune should head to Betfred now to play at Gold Rally, the biggest progressive jackpot (at £838,000) currently available at the site.

New Video Slots Made Available through BetFred and William Hill

Fans of video slots have some great new game to try out from the casino sites of Betfred and William Hill. Both Betfred’s Top Trumps Celebs and Will Hill’s Iron Man 2 have just been made available to play and feature exciting film themes alongside the promise of huge cash rewards.

Betfred’s new video slot was developed by Playtech (the same company behind the bulk of the site’s gaming platform) and is already available for play. Top Trumps Celebs is a 20-payline affair that is designed to bring a bit of Hollywood to online gamers through five reels covered in images of stars like Will Smith, Madonna, Brad Pitt, Beyonce Knowles and more. The new video slot lets players pick their favourite celebrities then assigns their faces to the reels’ wild symbols. The movie theme continues on with red carpet bonus rounds as well.

William Hill’s Iron Man 2 is another five reel slot but, unlike Top Trumps Celebs, it comes with 25-paylines. Iron Man 2 awards free games when players are lucky enough to trigger three or more Iron Man logos on the reels. The free games come complete with a multiplier that increases with every other spin, promising great cash rewards during bonus play. Most exciting of the new video slot’s features is the introduction of fixed paylines (that keep all 25 lines active throughout play) and the Iron Man Reactor, an extra wild symbol that appears in all free games. Iron Man 2 can be played at William Hill Casino now.

Given Wagerworks reputation for quality game development, Betfred fans should have a lot to look forward to. It’s good news for online gamers and exciting for both Betfred and Wagerworks too. The recent deal that saw the two companies enter a working relationship currently looks like a win for everyone involved.

BetFred Poker Launch Summer Tournament Series

BetFred Poker Launch Summer Tournament Series

If poker fans can tear themselves away from the conclusion of the 2009
World Series of Poker then they’re likely to find a number of excellent promotions occurring at their favourite sites, like BetFred’s newest, the Summer Tournament Series.

The BetFred Poker Summer Tournament Series is a massive series already underway at the site and slated to run daily until the end of the season. With buy-ins set as low as 1 cent and a prize pool guaranteed to run at least
$43,000 USD in total the tables at BetFred are sure to be buzzing for the next two months. The company will be adding up to $1,500 with every continuing week of the series. Qualifying games run each and every day — the players that earn their way to the top will then be able to compete in a weekly tournament. These tournaments take place every Friday night at 8pm EST, hosting a re-buy format and starting players with 1,500 chips and a minimum 10-chip blind.

All online poker players need to get in on the
Summer Tournament Series is an account with BetFred Poker and to follow a few simple steps. New registrants must hold a deposited amount sufficient to cover a buy-in to one of the many BetFred tables then compete in a poker game and accumulate a relatively easy 1,000 points (earned from real-money game actions such as betting, winning hands and so forth).

Betfred Launch St. Patrick’s Promotion and More

Betfred Launch St. Patrick’s Promotion and More

Players at Betfred Bingo are sure to have a busy month ahead of them as the notable site crams even more great bonuses and rewards into the second half of March. Members of Betfred will be able to compete for some great, seasonal prizes throughout the next two weeks as the popular network launches special events for two of the month’s biggest days.

March 17th is St. Patrick’s Day and Betfred Bingo is celebrating by providing lucky members the chance to double their winnings with a special promotion. Players who have deposited within the last seven days before St. Paddy’s will be able to compete for a full house during the 17th. If achieved, Betfred will double your earnings. The second big event commemorates the official first day of spring, March 20th, with an IKEA voucher giveaway. Players that have deposited at least £25 between the 1st and 19th of March become eligible for a £250 IKEA reward as part of the Spring Makeover competition. Every eligible Betfred member will then be entered into a draw through which the winner is eventually announced at the end of the day on the 20th.

With both of these promotions, Betfred Bingo is going a long way toward making March a good month to play in while waiting for spring to truly arrive. Both promotions accompany the already outstanding bonuses regularly available for Betfred members.
