Lucky Player Scoops $4.4 million Top Prize on Aztec’s Millions Progressive Slot

Aztec's MillionsOne fortune player of RTG’s Aztec’s Millions progressive slot landed the top prize last week, $4.4million!

RTG has long been known for being the primary provider of online casino games to a US audience. Many top American casinos feature titles from Real Time Gaming, consisting of classic slots, table games, video slots and progressive jackpot games. One of the most famous is Aztec’s Millions, and last week, after a decade-plus long wait, its top prize was finally won.

The Twelve-Year Wait Has Ended

Aztec’s Millions first made its debut in the late 2000s. It is one of several progressive jackpot slots from RTG offered up to US casinos, with others including Megasaur, Spirit of the Inca, Jackpot Piñatas, and Jackpot Cleopatra’s Gold. Ever since it launched, players have been trying to get their hands on the top prize.

Like most progressives, the game takes a small sum of each bet and adds it to a collective pot. However, to win the prize, American players must wager the maximum stake of $6.25 a spin and hope that the randomly triggered prize falls their way. It has taken just under twelve years, but for one lucky player, that has become a reality. As you can imagine, such a lengthy gap between wins meant that the progressive prize had a substantial value. In total, the victor has scooped around $4.4m.

More Details Await

Thus far, the online casino in question and details on the player have not been made available. What is known is that the Real Time Gaming slot paid out an epic win worth $4,420,568.

By contrast, other RTG slots currently have jackpots which are only worth around the $1 million mark. While some USA players might have given up hope that Aztec’s Millions would ever dish out the goods, they are likely to be reinvigorated and full of confidence now. One would expect that a flurry of players will flock to play the game as its progressive prize builds up once more. At the time of writing, the jackpot already standards at over $1m.

Other bettors might now turn their eye to RTG’s other jackpot slots as they attempt to pocket life-changing sums of money. Megasaur’s jackpot is currently climbing towards the $950,000 mark, while Jackpot Piñatas is currently worth $1.8m. Even these prizes – and the most recent win – pale compared to the RTG record, which stands at the $5.46m mark and was won on Shopping Spree last summer. The winner certainly went on one.
