Stunned Man Wins £2 Million Jackpot At Online SlotsSeptember 3, 2010 8:03 am
One lucky punter from Bristol, England can still hardly believe his good fortune after scooping an enormous £1,963,088 ($3,025,153), while playing the progressive ‘Deal or No Deal’ slot game at Jackpotjoy Bingo at the weekend.
The man, known only as Matthew G, was passing the time during the Bank Holiday weekend with a friend, when they duo decided to have a gamble on the site.
That was around 3pm on Saturday, and as Matthew G explains:
“I joined the site in 2009 and hadn’t played for a while when my mate suggested we have a go while we were round mine on Saturday. I joked that if I won I would give him £250,000 never thinking for one moment I would!”
“I am definitely fulfilling my promise to my friend who will be getting £250,000, but apart from that I have no idea how I will spend it.”
The massive win will certainly prove to be a life changing experience for the two pals, but not surprisingly Matthew G remains overawed by his unbelievable luck and is still trying to grasp the reality of becoming an overnight millionaire.
“My head still feels numb, I’m just so shocked! I kept refreshing my balance to check the money’s still there. I couldn’t believe it had actually happened. The support team were great over the Bank Holiday weekend assuring me it was all real!
“I’m still living in a day dream and really can’t believe this has happened to me.”
As Matthew G spends the rest of his life coming to grips with his life changing experience, the Deal or No Deal jackpot has been reset to £18,000 and has begun its dizzying ascent once more.
