Betfair player hits £1.2 million jackpot on Christmas

28 December 2016
(PRESS RELEASE) -- One lucky Betfair Arcade player hit the Red Tiger Gaming Macau Jackpot to win £1,197,161 while playing the popular Dragon's Luck slot on Christmas Day. The Macau tab, exclusive to Red Tiger Gaming, has become well known for its uniquely exciting progressive jackpots.
The progressive Macau Jackpot was won with a £2 stake and is the biggest of several types of Red Tiger jackpot available on Betfair. Other Red Tiger jackpots include the Super Jackpot and Dragon's Jackpot, progressives which must pay before the pot reaches £25,000. Also featured is the highly popular Betfair Arcade Daily Jackpot guaranteed to pay out daily before 11 p.m.
Red Tiger's jackpots on Betfair are available on the company's Macau tab, which exclusively hosts Red Tiger's Asian themed games. Red Tiger is also the primary external provider of slots to the Betfair Arcade, where its top quality European games such as Lucky Wizard, Rainbow Jackpots, Temple of Gold and Persian Fortune are all contributors to their own family of progressive jackpots.
Mike Phelan, Head of Betfair Arcade & Paddy Power Games, said, "We're delighted that one of our customers hit this fantastic Red Tiger jackpot on Christmas Day. We pay out jackpot prizes every day, but the big ones like this are really special and remind us of the joy we can bring. It was a very merry Christmas for one lucky player and we wish them all the best! The Macau Jackpot is already back up at almost £600,000 and can be won at any time."
Carl Ejlertsson, Account Director at Red Tiger Gaming, added, "We've been working very closely with the team at Paddy Power Betfair to build new and innovative jackpot features, including the popular Daily Jackpots which we originally built for them as a promo to pay out before the end of Euro 2016 football matches. To see one of their players hit the Macau Jackpot on Christmas Day really made our Christmas here at Red Tiger. We look forward to continuing to work with our close partners like Paddy Power Betfair to find new and exciting ways for people to win big casino prizes."
