UK Progressive Slot Player Wins Big at Aspers Casino

UK Progressive Slot Player Wins Big at Aspers Casino’s Fort Knox Penny Slot

Patricia Foale’s 40p bet on the Fort Knox progressive slot at Northampton’s Aspers Casino landed her £18,265.49. The amount she won is the biggest jackpot ever paid out by a UK casino, since the country’s Gambling Act of 2005 limits progressive slot prizes up to a maximum £20,000 only. The win last Monday (March 17) also made Aspers the “home of big wins” since Patricia’s feat is close on the heels of the £18,096 jackpot won by a lucky slot player at the Aspers Casino in Stratford, London last March 07, 2014.

The Fort Knox Progressive Slot is one of the many penny slots developed by pioneer gaming technology provider IGT, mainly for UK recreational punters. The advent of Britain’s Gambling Act 2005 changed the slot gaming scene by increasing the limit of electronic gaming machines (EGM) installed inside casinos, based on the EGM category; albeit limiting the amounts placed as bets as well as the size of the jackpot at stake in every slot machine. Stand alone slots (B1 Category) offer a maximum prize of up to £10,000, while bets are capped at £5 max.

IGT’s Fort Knox progressive penny slot EGMs are linked to other widely-played IGT titles such as the Cleopatra I and II, Wild Goose Chase, Kenny Rogers 2, World Wrestling Entertainment and Sydney Omar’s Horoscope. Fort Knox has a Trigger Zone feature, which can be randomly activated between intervals in any of the active machines connected to IGT’s network of UK progressive slots. Once the Trigger Zone feature is activated, punters will have the chance to participate in the four-level bonus games in which the cash rewards get higher at every succeeding level.
