It is always nice to hear now and then about a big slots win in order to both congratulate the winner and to imagine yourself in that position, so our round of applause this week has to go to Burnley man Richard Taylor, a darts fan who managed to hit a jackpot of £258,670 from a bet of just 20p at an online casino very recently.
Richard is a forty five year old who works in a call centre, and normally it is darts rather than * slot machine games which are his thing. He sometimes has a bit of trouble sleeping ahead of his night shifts at the centre, and when this is the case he normally plays darts in order to help him relax – but not this time. His decision to go to the William Hill Online site and play the Super Spins Bar X just happens to have been one of the best decisions that he has ever made in his life, as he now stands to receive a huge amount of money as a result of his exciting luck.
Speaking of the win to a local paper, he said: “It’s still not really sunk in. It’s about the equivalent of 20 years wages as I won’t pay any tax on my winnings. It’s the kind of thing that happens to other people, but I never thought I’d ever get that kind of money for just 20p. I’ve not got a car at present, but that will probably be my first buy. I currently lodge with friends, so now I can buy my own home. It’s not enough for me to retire, but it will make life a lot easier. I won’t be worrying about the bills and I’ll be able to go wherever I want on holiday.”
This is certainly one happy customer who will be celebrating the day that he went to the online casino for a long time, and it seems as though it will really make a difference to his whole life too. We have to wish him all the best with such a win!
