5/25/10 – Still working as a hospital janitor at 72 years of age after hard financial times, a small-bet online punter’s ship finally came in this week at Casino.com.
 
The online casino reports that the anonymous player’s carefully built retirement savings were wiped out by heavy medical bills in his late fifties, making it impossible for him to retire from his night shift job at a hospital.
 
But his luck changed three weeks ago when his $20 stake on an internet slot delivered a $2 000 win, enabling him to play a little more than usual until this week he hit the slot’s jackpot, banked $94 377 and was finally able to achieve a modest retirement.
 
"I was just grateful to have a job and be able to still work at my age,” he told Casino.com management this week.  “I'm not planning anything too extravagant, but I certainly plan to spend more time at home with my dog, Barbie."
