Let’s take a look at the main gambling news headlines this week, starting with a feel-good story from Scotland.
Player at William Hill Casino Wins £2.5 Million
A player at William Hill Vegas Casino became a millionaire a few days ago after winning a massive sum of £2.5 million wagering on the Festival of Lights slot game with a bet of £2.50 at the site on Valentine’s Day.
The winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, is a single mum in her early forties from the Western Isles in Scotland whose huge cash prize was won three months after winning an amount of £30,000 on another slot game at William Hill.
According to the lucky winner, she intends using a portion of her winnings on extending her kitchen and purchasing a dishwasher. She added that she will take her time in deciding what to do with her winnings but has, meanwhile, booked a trip to Disney World for herself and seven-year-old son.
A spokesperson for William Hill commented that this win, by their reckoning, is the biggest sum of money that a customer at William Hill has ever won.
