Friday November 22 ,2013 : STABLE GIRL WINS MAJOR PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT AT WILLIAM HILL
What a return on investment – GBP 238,165 on a 20p stake!
A Newmarket, Suffolk stable girl staking 20p for a bit of fun on a William Hill website progressive slot scooped GBP 238,165 this week, quit her job and is making bigger wedding arrangements thanks to the windfall.
Olesia Kuzmychova (29) played the Leprechaun's Luck progressive on her laptop after returning to her flat around midday after working at the stables. Feeling bored, she fired up her laptop, logged on to the Will Hill online casino site, and made a bet that immediately delivered a return bigger than anything she imagined.
“I was shouting and jumping and screaming like crazy. This has completely changed my life," said the attractive blonde. “I wake up in the morning and think it is a dream – then realise it is reality.”
Olesia said she intends to travel to her family home in the Ukraine and plans a “big wedding” to boyfriend, former jockey William Rovetti (32).
"The first thing I am going to do is go back to Kiev to see my dear mum. It will be wonderful to spend Christmas with her – it will be the best Christmas ever. My mum was crying today, she was so happy for me.
“Then I want to go somewhere hot with a nice beach. I have dreamed of going on holiday somewhere hot so that will be next on my list," she said.
