Paddy Power Bingo player wins £760,0002017-07-30 11:00:00
We all dream of our one in a million punt coming off and making us rich and that dream has become a reality for one Paddy Power bingo player. One very lucky player won a whopping £764,834 from a 50p stake on the online bingo game Beauty’s Beast at the Paddy Power casino.
The player, who has decided to remain anonymous, has described his life changing win in an interview with Paddy Power News. While most of us would be jumping for joy after winning three-quarters of a million pounds the fortuitous player recounted his initial lack of emotion when ‘Jackpot’ flashed across his screen. “At first, when I saw the message flash up on the screen, I didn’t feel anything. Honest to God! I was playing and this thing just flashed across my screen saying ‘Jackpot’. I didn’t take any notice of it, I actually thought it was an advert or something, so I quickly clicked out of it”.
He even carried on playing after he had won, not realizing he’d already scooped the top prize. It was only after returning to the casino lobby that the sceptical player realized that he had, in fact, won the jackpot. “Then I actually carried on playing the game for a few more spins. It wasn’t until I exited out of the game and came back to the lobby I even noticed anything. I saw my balance and realised that the flashing jackpot wasn’t an ad! I couldn’t believe it!”
He describes the moment when he first saw his account balance blow up and how he couldn’t believe it at first. The cautious player was still convinced that it was some sort of scam but soon had confirmation that he had in fact beaten all the odds and was instantly £764,834 richer. “I was in absolute shock. I had to call the help desk and confirm that I’d really won”.
It was only after Paddy Power had confirmed the win that he allowed himself to celebrate properly. “From there, I was in hysterics. I texted my missus right away. I told her she needed to be sitting down. I had to Whatsapp her a picture of the jackpot win, and it was hysterics all over again.”
Despite becoming more than £760,000 richer the careful player stated that the money won’t change him. He says he’ll splash some of the cash on a new house and car but won’t be quitting his job anytime soon. “I always said that if I won a load of cash, I wouldn’t change the way I worked. I’ve always worked hard. In fact, I’m in work on the phone to you and I have a long shift tomorrow I’ll be back in for!”
