UK – BetVictor punter wins biggest ever UK slot payoutBy Phil - 30 October 2013
BetVictor, announced its luckiest ever casino punter, a North Sea Cod fisherman from Aberdeenshire, who hauled in a staggering £5.4m jackpot in the ‘Hall of Gods’ in BetVictor’s casino.
The married father of one reeled in the biggest ever UK online casino pay-out winning a progressive jackpot, which started with him placing just 20p a spin, as his fortune grew to a multi-million pound drop.
The deep sea fisherman’s winnings came just six months after another BetVictor customer landed a huge catch of £4.5 million after playing on the ‘Mega Fortune’ slot at BetVictor’s Casino.
Ecstatic with his win the Scottish fisherman who never believed it was possible to win so much money online says: “There’s no need to ask how I’m feeling, yahoooo should answer that! I guess we all chase the dream and winning the biggest ever UK online jackpot has been a dream come true for me and my family as it will change our lives; we have no worries about the future now.
“I have been a member of BetVictor for a long time and I bet across their sportsbook and poker games but one day I thought I would give the casino slots a try too, as the jackpots are so tempting; but I never dreamt I could actually win so much. When I won the first person I told was my wife, she was as shocked as I was. I can only compare the feeling of winning as equal, but different, from the day I saw my son born.”
The lucky Aberdeenshire man is keeping his feet firmly on the ground and plans to continue fishing as it has always been his way of life and he would miss it too much if he stopped. He will take some time out to decide what to do with his winnings but plans to donate some of it to charity, as he believes everyone should give something back to help others who don’t have the same luck in life.
Andrew Dymock, Head of eGaming at BetVictor said: “I couldn’t be happier for one of our most loyal of Scottish customer’s to pick up this fantastic jackpot and it was a pleasure to congratulate him after his win. This jackpot is the biggest single win BetVictor has ever paid out and we are delighted to say that we’ve paid out £10 million to two lucky BetVictor players in the last six months. BetVictor has the strongest range of casino games available and as we are clearly one of the ‘luckiest’ online bookmakers, there is no better place to play!”
Offering a word of advice to other online players, the Aberdeenshire winner comments: “Keep chasing your dreams as, like me, they might just come true. BetVictor is the number one site for me and who knows who could be next to hit the jackpot.”
BetVictor has made two of its casino customer’s multi-millionaires in 2013 and with over 600 casino games to choose from, four Live Casino’s to play including Victor’s Casino, their recently launched privately owned live casino, there could be even more BetVictor millionaire winners before the end of the year.
