Call Centre Worker Wins £258,670 Online Slots Jackpot

Call Centre Worker Wins £258,670 On Online SlotA UK call centre worker from Burnley is celebrating his incredible good fortune after scooping a £258,670 online slots jackpot while playing at William Hill.
On the fateful night Richard Taylor, 45, said he was having difficulty sleeping and so decided to go online and play the Super Spins Bar X slot at William Hill.  Mr Taylor said he had wagered a mere 20p on a single spin when he was distracted by the name of a horse mentioned on a racing program on TV. By the time he returned his gaze to his PC screen, he was greeted by five gold symbols and a figure showing he had just won £258,670. No doubt at that point he happily forgot about ever getting back to sleep again that night.
Describing the moment he won the incredible sum, Richard Taylor said: “I am still in shock really as I was playing the game to pass the time before I went to sleep ahead of my night shift. I was just pressing the buttons when the win happened – I only had to lift a finger to land a fortune. It is absolutely fantastic.”
In the UK there are no taxes on gambling winnings so Mr Taylor, who earns around £20,000-a-year as a call centre operative, says the win is equivalent to roughly 20 years of wages. When asked what the money meant to him, Mr Taylor said his life would now be a lot easier, he wouldn’t have to worry about finding money to pay bills, and that he could go wherever he wanted on holiday.
Mr Taylor is also a keen Burnley Football Club supporter, and quipped: “I am a Burnley fan and could probably buy the club with that sort of money the way they are playing at present. I might even splash out on a season ticket for Turf Moor – I’d really love some of my luck rub off on the team.”
