June’s Single Biggest Jackpot Win

It’s time to find out which OJO game scored the biggest single jackpot win of June, which was a mighty £42,776.71! It was Relax Gaming’s Temple Tumble 2 Dream Drop, where our lucky winner had only bet £5 before she found herself in the Dream Drop jackpot round. A hop, skip and a spin later and the Major Jackpot was staring back at her!

With 46,656 ways to win and cascades and exploding stone blocks allowing more win-ways, Temple Tumble 2 Dream Drop is one temple that’s worth a visit. The Golden Temple in India is another, but for different reasons.

June’s Highest Paying Casino Games

Once again, Big Bass Bonanza is the Catch of the Day, paying out a grand total of £2,729,934.34 this June. Also making a splash was its brother from another mother, Big Bass Splash who swam all the way to the 3rd highest paying game of the month. If you’re not much of a fish fan, there are plenty of other tasty treats on the highest paying games menu, so grab a plate and see what takes your fancy…
