A 49-year-old Brit has claimed a windfall of £4,082,246.09 – all from an 80p online casino bet.
The sensational spin was landed in October on NetEnt’s Mega Fortune Dreams while the player was playing on online bingo and casino site Bingo.com.
“Mega Fortune Dreams has certainly lived up to its name again by creating another instant multi-millionaire and delivering a life-changing win,” said Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt Chief Product Officer.
The bingo.com customer, who won the £4m jackpot from an 80p spin at Bingo.com, is understandably thrilled. He said: “You hear about people winning these sorts of multi-million-pound jackpots, but you never really believe it as it never happens to anyone you know. And now it’s happened to me! It’s so unreal.”
He went onto explain how he won the jackpot: “I got home in the early afternoon and went to bed but couldn’t sleep so I decided to have a play on the computer. To be fair, I was actually dozing off when I pressed the button and the feature came up. I thought ‘that’s alright – I’ve won something’ – but I didn’t realise how much I had won. I sort of read something, so decided to get my glasses and that’s when I realised how much it was!”
“It really has changed my life – but it’s also changed other people’s lives for the good too. I’ve given my friends and family the best part of a million pounds. I’ve already bought an Aston Martin DB11 and a Jaguar XJ for my dad – but I got good deals! We’re going to Disneyland and I’m now retired!”
