Fisherman nets £5.4m slot jackpot
A North Sea cod fisherman has won the biggest ever UK online casino jackpot.
The lucky Aberdeenshire man reeled in a huge £5.4m payout playing the Hall of Gods slot at BetVictor casino.
The married father of one’s journey to the progressive jackpot began with him placing bets of just 20p a spin.
The Scot, who intends to continue fishing despite his gigantic win, plans to donate some of the money to charity in order to give something back to those less lucky than himself.
He said of his win: “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 can only compare the feeling of winning as equal, but different, from the day I saw my son born.”
BetVictor head of e-gaming Andrew Dymock said: “I couldn’t be happier for one of our most loyal Scottish customers to pick up this fantastic jackpot and it was a pleasure to congratulate him after his win.”
The payout comes just six months after another BetVictor customer won a massive £4.5m jackpot on the Mega Fortune slot game.
