Casino Pharaon Lyon from Partouche GroupNot far from the Interpol headquarters, the Partouche Pharoah Casino in Lyon broke out the champagne with a winner who won the Partouche Megapot. In fact, on Tuesday the 5th of March 2012, an occasional player went to spend some time in the Lyon casino and bet 5 euros on one of the machines linked to the Partouche casinos progressive jackpot. The machine got carried away and displayed the massive amount of 2 942 355.80 euros. The lucky winner became an instant millionaire thanks to this progressive jackpot which accumulated, over 3 months, part of the bets on the 206 linked up slot machines. The last Partouche Megapot was won last November in the Agon Coutainville Casino and the winner took off with 2 474 604 euros.

Partouche Megapot: progressive Jackpot

The Partouche Megapot has been a real success since it was launched in 2008 and has helped the Partouche casinos to keep a certain clientele loyal. No less than 19 players have walked away millionaires and the Partouche group has handed out more than 42 million euros and 30 players have come up with the correct numbers for this progressive jackpot.

The Partouche Megapot is one of the largest European casinos’ jackpots but is far from the jackpots in American land based casinos. The Partouche Megapot has a serious competitor: the Magic Casinos Jackpot. This progressive jackpot incorporates more slot machines from different casino groups: Joagroupe, Tranchant, Barriere, Cogit and independent casinos. To-day, the Magic Casinos Jackpot is worth more than 4.7 million euros.

The concept of the Partouche Megapot is an excellent innovation even if several online casinos have been offering it for many years although the technology is easier to install.
