Sussex businessman and Internet gambler Jason H. will by now be viewing a brilliant GBP 1 426 000 addition to his bank account following a bold winning streak on the virtual roulette tables at William Hill Casino.com.
 
For the forty-something Brit, who is a regular player at Will Hill, the lucky number combination is 23, and it came up trumps for him last week. Starting off with his usual bets, Mr. H built up his balance after a good run…and then his good fortune really kicked in.

amazement as it came in for him, netting a cool six-figure amount.
 
Not content to stop there he followed the same tactics to see 23 drop again and again, boosting his payout to a total of GBP 1 426 000. At this point, Jason H couldn't believe his run of luck and he called the casino to check that his computer wasn't playing up and confirm his win was real.
 
"It was real alright," confirmed Hills spokesman David Hood.
 
”We must be the world's luckiest betting company……. for punters! Since Christmas, we have written three GBP 1+ million cheques out to winning customers and at this rate we're aiming to tackle the credit crunch one ‘Willionaire' at a time! For Jason H, it wasn't a case of third time lucky, but ‘twenty-third' time lucky as the number '23' came up several times in short succession. The client, because he was on such a hot streak kept increasing his stakes with his winnings until he hit that magical GBP 1.4 million win. Incredible!”
 
Mr. H's win comes just weeks after Yorkshireman Fred Craggs's historic GBP 1 million pound 8-horse accumulator win from a 50p bet, and hot on the heels of another Hills internet casino player, Mr X, who celebrated Christmas with a GBP 1 million slot machine win.
