Ladbrokes Yields First Grand Slam of Slots Millionaire

When top online gambling software developer Microgaming first suggested
running an online slots tournament with a €1 million grand prize, many
thought the company was crazy, but many months down the line, the Grand Slam
of Slots
has come to an end and produced its first ever millionaire.

What is known about the lucky UK online slots fan and latest online millionaire
known only by his online alias ‘Pattoned’, is that he managed to win the Grand
Slam of Slots after signing up at Ladbrokescasino.com. As a
Microgaming-powered online casino, all Ladbrokes’s players had access to the
tournament.

Pattoned was obviously ecstatic after he won his place in the finals of the
Grand Slam of Slots thanks to a €2 qualifier. And once in the final, he
proved virtually unstoppable, as with less than 24 hours to go in the tournament
he surpassed Rick H, who had been at the top of the leader board, to go into the
lead.

That lead proved to great to catch and when the Grand Slam of Slots officially
ended, Pattoned was €1 million richer while Rick H had to be content with
second place. The one consolation of coming so close to becoming an overnight
millionaire is that Rick H got to walk away with the €50,000 second prize.

Plus, he and the rest of the top 10 finishers will each be able to enjoy an
automatic entry into the next Grand Slam of Slots, which is expected to be even
bigger and better than this one. But it’s still hard to believe that after 11
grueling and nail-biting days, the world’s richest online slots tournament is
finally over.

Said an ecstatic Pattoned, ‘I can’t quite believe it yet. I’m absolutely
stunned. What will I do with the money? Who knows, we’ll have to wait and see.
I’m not thinking about leaving work at all, I absolutely love what I do and want
to continue it for as long as I can.’ There’s no doubt that he’ll be back for
more.

This year’s Grand Slam of Slots tournament offered a total prize pool of
€1.3 million and was limited to just 8,700 online slot fans from all over
the world. Each of whom earned their coveted spot in the lucrative tournament by
entering freeroll satellite online slot tournaments at their favorite
Microgaming online casinos.

Said Ladbrokescasino.com head of marketing, Charlie Goodenough, ‘This tournament
was always going to be exciting with €1 million up for grabs and it is a
great honor to be involved in creating the first online slot tournament
millionaire. The Grand Slam of Slots has added a new dimension to our marketing
activities.’
