Tyler Morris had been at a friend’s funeral earlier in the day and decided to go and play the penny slots in memory of his friend’s favourite gambling pastime.
Morris was playing The Lord of the Rings slot when he won and was soon presented with a cheque from the Palace Casino.
After receiving his winnings Morris told Lisa Quirch, the PR manager at the casino, that he felt his friend had influenced his luck, “Tyler said he felt his friend was watching over him and had blessed him with the big win.”
Morris said that he intends to use the winnings to pay off some debts, repair the roof of their house and spend some of the money on their children and grandchildren.
