Yako Casino Player Turns 40p Into Win of More Than £42K
Are you one of those online casino players who believe in order to win big you must stake big? Well, we’re here to tell you that you’re wrong. So wrong! Last week, a lucky Microgaming slot player scooped more than €17million from a bet of just 0.80 and now, we’re hearing of it happening again, only this time, a Big Time Gaming (BTG) fan over at Yako Casino. Lil’ Devil is a red-hot good vs evil video slot by BTG with the potential to hit huge wins, but never in a million years did the Yako Casino player imagine he would win tens of thousands from just a 0.40 bet!
The 6×4 reel engine offers 4,096 ways to win per spin, which is considerably less than a Megaways mechanic but substantially more than your typical 5-reel slot. Big wins can be had during the base game but it’s the free spins feature than can elevate the prizes. Triggering the spins, the player is given an option of 12 dynamite lover free spins or 7 be my angel free games, the player chose the latter. A random symbol is chosen and a designated area stretching from the 2nd reel to the 4th marked out in flames. Whenever the chosen symbol lands in this area, it becomes a sticky wild and remains in place for the duration of the spins. Additional spins can be obtained by landing 4 sticky wilds. Angel wilds begin with a 4x multiplier and will increase by 2x up to a maximum of 12x with every spin.
The lucky player’s chosen symbol was the number 9, one of the lowest paying symbols on the reels. Playing with his 0.40 a spin, he managed to land them gracefully on reel 3 and this led to reels 3 and 5 becoming fully wild. In the next two spins that followed, reels 4 and 2 also became fully wild and this resulted in the entire zone being wild. At this point, multipliers were 12x and 6x and this led to a win of £3,360.08, but he wasn’t done yet!
All but reels 1 and 6 were wild. He had used 11 of his 19 spins and both angel wilds had maxed out with the 12x multiplier, resulting in a combined multiplier of 144x with every single spin. High paying symbols began landing on reels 1 and 6 and this led to multiple 6-of-a-kind combinations per spin, all of which were boosted by those angel wild multipliers. The single highest pay on a single spin was £8,478.72! When all 19 spins were used, his 0.40 stake had produced an eye-watering and life-changing win of £42,051.92, which is 105,129.8 times his bet!
