Beginners Luck


We all dream of winning big from a small stake and that’s exactly what one lucky Paddy Power player did when she won £220,000 from £1.25 bet on the sites Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven slot. Within two hours of signing up to the Irish bookmaker’s casino the player from Manchester known as CJK had won more money online with a single spin than most of us can expect to win in a lifetime. With a combination of luck and being in the right place at the right she scooped the slots top jackpot prize.

Dettori Delight


Speaking to Paddy Power News CJM has described the win and her initial shock and disbelief after seeing the word ‘Jackpot’ flash across her screen. She still seems a little shaken by it all and the big win and the news of her new-found fortune has quite sunken in yet. “I didn’t believe it a first, and I’m not actually sure if I do now… I guess it’ll feel real when I see those numbers in my bank account” she explained. When asked why she chose the Frankie Dettori slot she was quick to admit that she’s not much of a horse racing fan: “I’m not even into horse racing as punter or anything – but I just decided to give the Dettori game a go and managed to hit the jackpot. I once won some money betting on Red Rum in the Aintree Grand National when I was younger, so maybe that influenced my choice of game.”.

Renovations and a Holiday


The big question asked of every jackpot winner is what they’re going to spend the money on. CJM has modest aspirations for the money prioritizing repairing her house over spending it frivolously. “We have needed to do some work on our house now for a while, including fixing the roof” she explained. But after the house has been done up she will allow herself to enjoy the money a little bit and is “most looking forward to bringing my child on holiday for the first time”. Her plans might be delayed slightly though as she needs to get her passport renewed: “I have to get my passport renewed, though. It hasn’t been valid for ages now, because we’ve not been able to afford a holiday for so long. But that’s all changed now!” she said.

“Pure Relief”


When asked to sum up her win in a few words the lucky punter said “Pure relief! Mainly that I had won a really good amount of money, with which I can now use to make some differences to the people I care about. Not only that, but I can make some necessary repairs to the house and get away on holiday. It’s unbelievable.”.
