Torquay resident wins £345,000 - As Peter Pans the bookies
Peter Brown, who works for a newsagent in Torquay, is set to make the headlines this weekend following his £345,253.05 win on the William Hill Vegas game, ‘Leprechaun’s Luck’. The 44 year old father played a £1 spin on the popular slot game and turned it into the mammoth total.
[UKPRwire, Sun May 15 2011] Mr Brown, who opened his account with William Hill in 2001, is one of the biggest ever winners on William Hill Online. The plucky player follows a long list of British players who have won big jackpots on William Hill Vegas including a London woman who bagged £420,000 in September 2010.
‘I’m still in shock, I just can’t believe it’ said a delighted Mr Brown, ‘When it came up on the screen that I’d won – I thought I was dreaming – and it wasn’t until someone from William Hill rang to congratulate me that it started to sink in.’
‘My father in-law is Irish and when I told him I’d won £345,000 on a game called Leprechaun’s Luck - he thought I was pulling his leg. We’ll be raising a pint of Guinness to William Hill over the weekend.’
‘I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the money, but I fancy buying a new Jeep and maybe a brand new 3D TV.’
‘Peter’s big win came on Thursday 12th, but if he had played a day later then he might not have been so lucky,’ said William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny, ‘We’re delighted for Peter and we’d like to wish him all the best with his new found fortune.’
