Bet365 gives this player a great welcome to online gambling!
M. Crocker, a UK player who had only been playing the slots at bet365.com for a week, hit the big time with a win that most punters only dream about last week, collecting GBP 609,320 in a massive progressive jackpot hit on Leprechaun's Luck.
Casino management reports that the lucky player initially joined the site to have a flutter on a horse race, but the casino games attracted him as well, and a week later paid out more than he could have imagined.
“I was shocked, I had to ring a few people to see if it was true," said Crocker this week. "It still hasn’t sunk in yet and probably won’t until I see it in my bank account.”
Now he has immediate plans for a holiday, a new car, then he’ll “go from there”.
Bet365 is powered by Playtech software, and can boast over seven million customers worldwide. The group is based in Britain and employs over 1,700 people.
