Blueprint Gaming’s Jackpot King progressive system is connected to select slot games of the provider, offering players the ability to earn big jackpot wins. At PokerStars Casino, one of the games connected to the progressive jackpot is Genie Jackpots. The popular slot has now made a Norwegian player of PokerStars Casino a millionaire after the jackpot was activated on February 13th for £1.2 million.

The Genie Jackpots online slot game is actually a new addition to the Jackpot King progressive suite of Blueprint Gaming. With the win, it marks the first time that PokerStars Casino has seen a jackpot won resulting from the Jackpot King series.

In a press release, the winner stated that the jackpot will be used to take part in PokerStars Live events in the future and to take the family on a vacation this summer. The winner commented on the big win by stating: “When the wheel stopped at the jackpot, I was for a split second sure that the software had frozen. But when the congratulations came up on the screen and the money suddenly was on my PokerStars account I could not really breathe or believe it. I was so happy.”

Blueprint Gaming Managing Director Matt Cole commented on the jackpot win as well by stating: “Congratulations to the lucky player and what an amazing start to the year to win such a life-changing sum of money. Our Jackpot King series continues to offer highly immersive games and we have plans to add exciting new releases throughout 2018.”
