Glasgow slots player wins £1.6m
A Scottish punter has won over £1.6m on an online slot.
The mystery Glasgow man scooped the prize on just a £1 spin of William Hill’s Pig Wizard game, which he was playing on his tablet.
The sixty-something Rutherglen resident, who immediately quit his factory job, won £1,659,372 – the biggest ever casino pay out at William Hill.
He is planning a trip to Vegas with his wife, although he also intends to make sure his grown-up child is “well looked after” and give money to other family and friends.
“I couldn’t believe it when I won it,” he said.
“We are just so happy and enjoyed a nice bottle of Dom Perignon to celebrate. I was nearing retirement but now I can retire a wee bit early and put my feet up!”
“We’ve got a lovely family and to think I can make such a difference to their lives – just by playing a game, for a bit of fun – it is just incredible.”
