This wasn’t the first time he’d played his way to the jackpot round on the Wild Wild West slot. He’d been there before so he knew what to expect but he’d never hit the top prize before. “I got into the jackpot round, which I’ve actually hit a few times in the past. But this time the screens started moving up and down and slowly this amount just appeared on the screen -£1.2m. I just stared at the screen for what must have been 5 minutes – I’m not sure I even blinked! I had to make sure it was right! So many zeros… So little time!”.

I really want to share my happiness with others.”.
The win couldn’t have come at a better time, although winning big at any time is great when you’re in the process of moving-house it’s all the sweeter; ““The timing is perfect because I am in the process of relocating house – so this will help this procedure no end and allow me to purchase it without worry or stress. I also want to share my winnings with people I love – my family, my children, my friends.”.
Speaking about sharing his million with others he added; “I’ll also be able to help my best friend get on the property ladder – which is an amazing feeling, knowing I’m able to help him with that.”
