The UK bookie group Gala Coral is claiming the biggest payout by a British bookmaker this week following a major win by a 48-year-old punter from Portsmouth. Playing the Wagerworks MegaJackpot progressive slot the online gambler, who's name is being withheld at his request, hit a GBP 2 086 585 jackpot by lining up five winning symbols on the centre pay-line with a maximum bet.
The jackpot has already been reset to a generous GBP1.5 million by the group, paving the way for yet another big hit.
David Stevens, Public Relations Manager for Coral said, “This is a record win for a customer of any British bookmaker and we are thrilled that he won this incredible life-changing sum of money when playing at Coral.co.uk. The WagerWorks product range is immensely popular with Coral customers and this incredible win proves that you don’t need to stake big to win big!”
