While his name hasn't been publicly revealed, other details have emerged about the recent winner of the record Beach Life online progressive jackpot, including the random luck that brought him to play the popular slots game in the first place.

Playing at Betred.com, the fortunate gambler (who is in his 20s and lives in Scotland) was sound asleep when a dog barking outside woke him up for his date with destiny; unable to get back to sleep he decided to try his luck at the online slots, starting out by betting £1 per spin at King Kong slots.

A win of £250 gave him a larger bankroll to work with, which he took to the popular Beach Life progressive slots game. The Beach Life jackpot had swelled into one of the largest online progressive jackpots ever, smashing its previous record of $4.8 million set back in 2007.

Just like progressive games in brick-and-mortar casinos, online jackpots work the same way, pooling money from everyone playing certain games into a larger jackpot that's available at many different online gambling sites.

Players at online casinos using Playtech software -- which also include popular sites like Europa Casino and Swiss Casino -- all share the same games such as Beach Life and others.

The latest big jackpot winner had been playing Beach Life for just six spins before he suddenly found himself $8,211,488 richer -- and all thanks to a barking dog and a sleepless night.

He'll now be flown on a private jet to meet Betfred founder Fred Done to collect his winnings, with Done releasing the following statement:

"As a bookmaker I get a real thrill out of turning somebody into a multi-millionaire at the click of a mouse. The jackpot has been growing for a while now and we were all hoping that it would be a Betfred.com customer that won this life-changing jackpot. It just goes to show that it’s always worth trying your luck!"
