New Zealand man wins massive slot jackpotSlot game play is still one of the most popular gaming options for players who go online. With online casinos, players have access to hundreds of jackpots at any given site, including options for beginners, video slots, classic games and more. Players like to enjoy the slot games due to the simple nature of game play as well as the potential to win a massive jackpot. Just recently, a man from New Zealand was able to earn more than $10 million while playing a progressive jackpot.
A progressive jackpot slot game will offer a side wager that can be placed. The money from the side wager is added to a separate jackpot that can be won as the game is played. This jackpot will continue to grow until someone is able to get the right combination on the reels. Rawiri Pou was playing the Mega Moolah game at Casinoland when he hit the jackpot, earning just over $10m, which equated to $7.2 million in US dollars.
The 27 year old had first won $1,500 playing the game and decided to keep at it, eventually earning the big win on June 17th. The player works in Matamata at the local Kentucky Fried Chicken and has plans to keep his job for now. Pou cannot wrap his head around the win and feels a big giddy after earning the big win since his parents continued to chastise him for wasting money on such games.
On a side note, the win is one that has led to controversy in New Zealand. The government has made it illegal for residents to wager on online gaming sites that are located internationally but has yet to make a move on those who do offer such gaming options. It is likely that the government will now try to find ways in which access to such gaming sites are removed from the country.
