On Saturday 23 February, a normal night at Sawtell RSL turned into a night to remember. One member won close to $950,000 on the new MAXIMILLION$ Statewide Linked Jackpot.
The lucky winner recently moved into the area and is a new member of Sawtell RSL. They were visiting the club and decided to play MAXIMILLION$. Surprised club members were initially puzzled when the jackpot went off, however soon realised that one of their very own would be the first person to claim the MAXIMILLION$ top prize.
“It took a while for the winner to realise, then there was a lot of shock and hugs. Staff shook their hands and congratulated them, but they didn’t want to make a fuss,” said Steve McDonald, Gaming Manager of Sawtell RSL.
Sawtell RSLs General Manager, Greg Agius added, “We are incredibly proud that the largest poker machine jackpot in Australian Club history has gone off for the first time in our small seaside Club. We congratulate the winners, and welcome everyone to experience our lucky Club.”
Mark Brokenshire, Account Manager for MAX reiterated the significance of the jackpot for the venue. “It’s great to see that the first MAXIMILLION$ Jackpot has been won in a country venue. This jackpot win shows that any venue on the MAXIMILLION$ Statewide Jackpot Link has an opportunity to win big.”
As well as the promotional material given to the venue when they implemented MAXIMILLION$, Steve McDonald feels the multiple triple screen displays have great presence on their gaming floor, which helps to bring awareness of the jackpot.
