Fisherman wins biggest ever online jackpot in the UK

A fisherman from Aberdeenshire has hit a £5.4 million online jackpot, the largest ever paid by an online casino in the United Kingdom. The man said he started wagering 20p coins per spin in the Hall of Gods slots machine at BetVictor until he hit the jackpot.

The jackpot winner who has chosen to remain annonymous, said “When I won, the first person I told was my wife. She was as shocked as I was. I can only compare the feeling of winning as equal, but different, from the day I saw my son born. 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.”

The man says the had tried his luck betting on sports and later playing poker at the same site, but it was the size of the advertised jckpots what really caught his attention. And it seems to have paid out.

Although nothing has been decided yet as to how the money will be used for, the fisherman from Aberdeenshire says a part will go to charity and he will definitely not quit his job as a fisherman since he would probably miss it.

Only six months ago, another BetVictor player had also won a massive jackpot at the Mega Fortune slots games at the online casino.
