A single mother of five won £1.6 million after spending 40p on an online slot machine for the first time ever.
“I’m still in shock,” said the anonymous woman.
The woman from Dagenham, Essex, decided to have a go on the Mighty Tusk slot game on online casino Meccabingo.com this week. She hit the massive jackpot of £1.6 million just after spending 40p on her first-ever spin.
The lucky winner plans to purchase a new home and improve the lives of her family with her newly-gained fortune. “I’m a single parent with five children so the money is certainly going to improve my life, but more importantly theirs.”
“We hope the winner has a successful house hunt and enjoys the fruits of their new-found millionaire lifestyle with their family!” said the spokesman for Meccabingo.com.
A woman from New Jersey, United States, also won an impressive amount playing an online slot machine earlier this month. She took home a total of $287,945 after putting a $2 bet on the Divine Fortune slot at the SugarHouse Online Casino. It was the biggest online slots payout in the history of America as well as the largest win in New Jersey since SugarHouse Casino, originally from Philadelphia, entered the online gambling market of New Jersey in 2016.
“…People can win life-changing amounts online at any time and anyplace,” Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive, operator of SugarHouse Casino commented after the New Jersey woman won the record-breaking jackpot. The £1.6 million winnings of the single mum from Essex seem to have proved him right again.
