There was a HUGE pot of Gold at the end of the Leprechaun’s Luck rainbow for our biggest Jackpot Winner of 2010 who has taken £234,399.29!!

Jamie was used to using the casino machines and placing his football bets in William Hill’s shops when he decided to open an online account. He had only had his account 4 days when he became William Hill’s first big winner on our new slot Leprechaun’s Luck. Jamie secured a whopping £234,399.29, our biggest win of 2010 so far.

A shocked Jamie from Scotland said: "I regularly use your betting shops to put my bets on and have played on the machines in there as well. I decided I’d like an account so opened one with yourselves as you always have great odds on the Football. I liked the sound of the Leprechaun’s Luck slot as it was new and the Jackpot was really big. They are really similar to the ones in your shops that is why I like the games on the site. When the bonus round came up and then it said I had won I honestly didn’t believe it. I had to call up your Customer Services to make sure it was correct!"

Speaking about how he is feeling at the moment, he said; "I’m ecstatic! I really am still in shock; it’s only just sinking in. I’ve not slept hardly since I won and its only today when the money hit my bank account I actually started to believe I’ve just won almost a quarter of a million pounds!"

Responding to what he plans on doing with the money, Jamie said; "I’m not too sure, I’m still getting my head around the whole idea but I will definitely be getting myself a brand new car. I’m going to go on a massive holiday with my best mate and pay off some debts, then who knows.

William Hill Spokesperson Sharon Young said; "When I spoke to Jamie I still think he was trying to take it all in. He was very calm for someone who had just won such a life-changing amount. Jamie seemed not only happy but grateful at how lucky he has been. For us it’s fantastic, not only is it a new slot but it’s also for a new customer and the BIGGEST win so far this year on progressive jackpots. Definitely a life-changing amount and I wish him all the best for the future. I just hope he continues to use William Hill as his bookmaker after proving we really do change people’s lives for the better with our excellent choice of products across the site."

The Jackpot is now rebuilding for our next lucky jackpot winner.
