A lot has been happening over the past few weeks and we will be discussing some of the major highlights from the online casino industry in April 2015. The final furlong of the Sure Win Cup Slot Tournament is now in-play over at Golden Riviera Casino. This extended online slot tourney was split in to four sections (aka furlongs) and it started on Monday 6th April.

50% of participants were eliminated at the end of each furlong and the remaining players are still battling it out to win their share of the guaranteed €10k prize pool. “Sure Win at Golden Riviera Casino is the highlight of my experience,” said one of last year’s winners, player P.B. He added, “I’m always sure to keep an eye out for when the tournament begins as I’d hate to miss out. Last year I walked away with €8,250 with very little effort. Plus the bonuses at this casino are phenomenal.” These comments came directly from a Golden Riviera Casino press release.

One of the major stories this month was about the player from Canada who won an incredible CA$7.5+ million (approximately €5,375,695.08 / £3,847,506.77) over at Royal Vegas Mobile Casino on a game called Mega Moolah. The lucky Canadian was playing from his mobile or tablet device when he won his world-record-breaking prize from just one spin on April 9th. The Canadian player, known only as Mark A. had only signed up to this casino just one week prior to winning the largest ever progressive jackpot paid out on mobile.

“We’ve been watching the progressive ticker grow substantially over the last few weeks; anticipation was building as to when it was going to strike! Once again the jackpot was hit via a mobile device; it really is a sign of today’s industry and how prevalent mobile is! Congratulations to Mark A on becoming one of the biggest jackpot winners in Microgaming’s history,” said Microgaming’s Head of Casino, John Quinn.
