William Hill Casino's Biggest Winner Bags £1.6 Million From £1 Bet
William Hill saw its biggest ever win made as a gambler scooped a £1.6 million payout from a £1 bet made at their free online casino website.
The man, who will remain anonymous, won the £1,659,372 jackpot beginning from a mere £1 spin playing William Hill Casino's Pig Wizard on his tablet device.
The married man in his early 60s from Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, toasted the triumph with his wife before announcing an early retirement from his factory job.
"I couldn't believe it when I won it," he said. "I will head off to Vegas with my wife but I will make sure I won't spend too much.
"I kept saying over and over again, 'This can't be true'. I didn't sleep for two whole nights and my wife was climbing the walls as we waited over the bank holiday to see the money in our account.
"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."
Father to one, he added that he intends to share his winnings with family and friends close to him, saying: "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."
The win is the largest witnessed at William Hill Casino, who match the first deposit made by newly-registered customers up to a free casino bonus of £150 to begin your opportunity to do likewise.
