Beginners Luck for Italian online player
 
Guido G, a 47-year-old player from Turin Italy has become the first to win Euro 100 000 in 888.it's "The Money Drop" game.
 
The winner's cheque was delivered at a celebratory dinner hosted by 888.it chief executive officer Pier Francesco Geraci, who said:  "Every time one of our clients wins it is as if we won too.  It is thanks to them that 888.it continues to grow and to receive the appreciation not only of other professionals, but also all our players, expert and novice. Guido is the first winner of one of our most fun games and it is only natural that we would want to meet him to deliver the Jackpot prize money in person and celebrate this victory with him."
 
"The Money Drop" is a branded game show offering from Endemol based on the television programme of the same name.
 
An excited Guido G said: "I do not believe it, maybe I'm dreaming! I know the game from the TV, but I never tried it online and I would never have imagined winning. I had no winning strategy, just beginner's luck!"
