31-year-old scores a $280,270 windfall.
A British PokerStars Casino player has turned gold into bricks and mortar with an impressive $280,270 win on PokerStars Casino’s Winstar slot.
The lucky 31-year-old from the East Midlands was “shaking like a jelly” and had to ask his mother to double check if he had really just hit the jackpot or if it was just his imagination after all five reels turned gold on the progressive jackpot slot, a press release from Pokerstars revealed Thursday.
“I can't put into words… I felt relieved I could finally buy a house, but oddly stressed and confused, elated and well, I don't know… it was so surreal, and unbelievable,” the punter told casino management, revealing that his big win is going to go towards providing a secure future for himself, his girlfriend and her daughter.
“I've already found a house I want. It’s a dream house, two weeks ago I would never be able to look at a house; now it’s a reality,” he said.
Other plans include treating himself to a new car and investing.
This is the second time this year that PokerStars Casino has provided a major winning moment and has paid out a mega jackpot of more than $100,000; another casino player also hit the Winstar progressive jackpot earlier this month. More than $5 million in Winstar jackpot wins have been paid out since its launch on PokerStars Casino in February 2016.
