The fisherman won his jackpot on the Hall of Gods slot at BetVictor Casino
A Scottish deep sea fisherman was celebrating this morning after winning a bumper £5.4 million jackpot on the Hall of Gods slot at BetVictor Casino this week.
The father of one from Aberdeenshire managed to hit the multi-million pound progressive jackpot after just playing with 20p bets. His win has been recorded as the largest ever payout by a UK bookmaker.
The player had been a long time visitor to BetVictor’s online sportsbook and poker offerings but was often put off by the slim chances of winning big at the online casino’s slots. However, the temptation of the potential large jackpots became too much and he decided to finally give the slots a go.
The fisherman said "When I won, the first person I told was my wife. She was as shocked as I was. I can only compare the feeling of winning as equal, but different, from the day I saw my son born."
He continued "I guess we all chase the dream and winning the biggest ever UK online jackpot has been a dream come true for me and my family as it will change our lives - we have no worries about the future now."
Head of eGaming at BetVictor Andrew Dymock stated "I couldn't be happier for one of our most loyal of Scottish customers to pick up this fantastic jackpot and it was a pleasure to congratulate him after his win.”
Dymock added "This jackpot is the biggest single win BetVictor has ever paid out and we are delighted to say that we've paid out £10 million to two lucky BetVictor players in the last six months.”
