PARIS France SPIELO International’s Wide Area Progressive WAP Jackpots system has broken national payout records in France on 6th May, presidential election day, with the country’s second biggest jackpots payout by MAGIC CASINOS JACKPOT of €5,875, 836. The lucky winner was a 49 year old father of two at Casino JOA de GERARDMER. France’s jackpot record of €9, 420, 902 in March 2011 is also held by MAGIC CASINOS JACKPOT.
MAGIC CASINOS JACKPOT is the world’s largest WAP jackpots system based on the well-known Star JACKPOT™ software and CRYSTAL WEB™ floor network solution from SPIELO International.
The fact that more than half the casinos in France have joined together to offer the country´s first truly national progressive jackpot also ensures the very high re-start value of €2, 010, 909 after the latest jackpot hit. A total of nearly 300 slot machines in nearly 100 casinos are connected to MAGIC CASINOS JACKPOT.
The joint venture includes the five largest casino groups including Lucien Barrière Hotels and Casinos, JOA, Tranchant, Emeraude, COGIT, and 20 independent casinos.
The jackpot generates enormous excitement, because a small bet can pay big: players wager a minimum of 3 credits of €0.50 (for a total of €1.5) to qualify for a jackpot of several million Euros.
This is another example of SPIELO International´s unique WAP expertise, which can be easily deployed across any number of casinos. SPIELO International offers the full scope of wide area progressive solutions, from just Star JACKPOT and CRYSTAL.net™ or CRYSTAL WEB installation to a full turnkey solution that includes machines, systems and administration.
SPIELO International administrates the jackpot 24/7, and is subject to very strict regulations. The jackpot administration includes daily meter reconciliation against system participation, hit management and regulatory reporting, as well as the accounting.
