March 16, 2009 (InfoPowa News) — Massive progressive jackpot wins appear to run in the family for a British duo, which has seen the family fortunes increase by a total of $2,122,213.82, reports PartyCasino.com in a statement this week.
In a remarkable coincidence, the father and son duo — who wish to remain anonymous — scooped up two significant jackpots almost exactly nine months apart.
On February 24th 2009, 'ScottishAOD' won the $1,358,857.49 Gold Mega Jackpot on the Mega Fortune Wheel.
"This jackpot was particularly closely followed as it looked at one point as if the PartyCasino.com record of $1,571,974 paid out to one player on the 8th October 2006 was under threat," said a Party Casino spokesman.
Remarkably, the winner's father, 'Takemystack7', had also won a Gold Mega Jackpot but for $763,356.33 a year earlier on 24 May 2008 — almost nine months to the day before his son's windfall!
ScottishAOD is a 29-year-old financial advisor who has played on PartyCasino.com for four years. Like his father, he plays frequently and his biggest previous single win was $8,000.
"It was great telling my Dad about my jackpot win," said ScottishAOD. "I loved it — he reacted with jealousy and disbelief that I had won more than he did! There is a bit of karma involved in this since my old man rubbed his win in so much — it was simply great to win and even better to win more than him!"
Asked if he was planning on buying his father a present he said with a grin: "I'm sure I can slip him a few quid to tide him over for the next few days. I've got plenty of plans for the money. Mainly, however, I intend to invest the monies to further retirement funds. Some would say this has been the luckiest nine months of my life, however, that honour still goes to the first nine months I met my wife."
The PartyCasino.com spokesman said: "What is truly remarkable is that their super delivery of big bucks was exactly nine months apart to the day! The father planted the seed and the son gave birth to a remarkable piece of online gaming history. Father and son are both doing well."
