Player Wins £345,253 Online Slots JackpotMay 30, 2011 8:40 am
One lucky William Hill’s customer is waking up to a whole new world of possibilities after scooping a £345,253 ($568,650) slots jackpot on the site this month.
Torquay newsagent Peter Brown, 44, had just spent a single pound on the Leprechauns’ Luck online slot when the 20 line online game aligned in such a way as to release the massive £345,253 jackpot.
Then hardly able to believe his good fortune, Mr Brown explained: “I’m still in shock, I just can’t believe it. I thought I was dreaming when it came up on the screen that I’d won and it wasn’t until someone from WilliamHill.com rang to congratulate me that it started to sink in.”
As it turned out Peter Brown was not the only person with difficulty believing the incredible news as his Irish father-in-law naturally assumed Peter was joking around when he called him up to tell him of his massive win on the Irish sounding game.
“He thought I was pulling his leg when I told him I’d won £345,000 on a game called Leprechaun’s Luck,” said the rather amused winner.
However, it didn’t take long before Peter Brown’s story was accepted by family and friends alike and now the resident from Devon, England said he was looking forward to buying, amongst other things, a new jeep and 3D television.
Following Mr Brown’s incredible win, William Hill spokesperson Tony Kenny commented:
“To turn one pound into £345,253 is just phenomenal. We’re delighted for Peter and we’d like to wish him all the best with his new found fortune.”
