£866,000 Mobile Slots Jackpot Won
A lucky 33 year old from Wakefield has hit the jackpot playing the Cop-the-Lot slot game from his smartphone at William Hill mobile sportsbook. The player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, won a fantastic £866,000. This is thought to be the largest ever mobile casino payout from a bookmaker.
Until this win the previous record at William Hill was £341,259.
William Hill’s spokesperson, Joe Crilly, said “This is our biggest ever mobile payout and is probably the biggest win in the history of mobile gaming. There is no doubt that we will see our very first mobile millionaire soon.”
The winner couldn’t believe his luck at first, “I had to turn my phone off and then turn it back on again because I thought there had been a malfunction. I just could not believe it. I cannot explain how I felt as I just went numb.”
He said he has no plans to leave his job but will take some time off to travel, “I have never been to another country and there are so many places I would love to go to. I want to take my family around the world although first, I want to go to Tokyo and New Zealand.”
