Sky Bingo has made its first ever millionaire with a big jackpot win of £1.3 million going to a lucky player from Wales. Chrissie Johnson, a chiropodist, won the jackpot while playing the Chests of Plenty slots game from Playtech.

Johnson had been a customer of Sky Bingo for just over a year when she won the £1,346,155.43 payout. This was the first payout over a million pounds from Sky Bingo and the largest single payout by the Sky Betting and Gaming brand since it launched.

“I like to play Sky Bingo because they play fair,” commented Johnson. “I also enjoy the games, features and chat. I can’t thank them enough; this is a life-changing amount and I’m looking forward to spending more quality time with my husband Mike and my children and grandchildren.”

Chests of Plenty is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slots game with a pirate theme with symbols that include a one-eyed pirate, a parrot, a map, a treasure chest and crossed cutlasses. There are multiple features including the Treasure Island Bonus, the Chesty Wild that can turn symbols wild and the Treasure Chest Progressive Jackpot.

The game was developed by Playtech’s bingo division and is part of the suite of bingo and slots games available on the site.

“We’re so delighted for Chrissie and to celebrate our biggest ever winning bingo prize pot with her here in Leeds,” announced James Boord, head of bingo and poker marketing. “We take great pride in building long-lasting relationships with customers by offering a best-in-class product and customer experience.”

“This win is proof that the excitement is real, as dreams really do come true. Sky Bingo has an exciting business plan with significant investment planned in product, marketing and people.”
