Lucky gambler scoops 65K win from Â£2 bet
A lucky online gambler has scooped Â£65K in winnings '“ from a Â£2 bet.
Dennis, from Burton on Trent, who wants to remain anonymous, struck it lucky just before midnight.
His all-or-nothing bet of Â£2 netted Dennis the Â£65,826 win using online casino Casumo.com.
Dennis said: 'I hit the jackpot around midnight and then I just couldn't sleep. I was too excited and too much in disbelief to be able to settle.
'I did try to catch some z's but after a couple of hours of tossing and turning I just ran downstairs to get the laptop and check if the win was real and still there.'
In a recent study conducted by Casumo.com, Brits revealed the cash sum they would need to win in order to feel like winners, valuing that winning feeling at Â£336K.
The average Brit reckons they achieve an average of three '˜little wins' a week, but only one in 10 says they feel like a true winner at life.
In light of his recent windfall, Dennis has already started crossing things off his bucket list.
For starters, he gave generous cash gifts to each of his two children and intends to go car shopping.
With a holiday booked in Tenerife with his wife next week, Dennis is currently thinking of other ways to enjoy their retirement together, including finishing off their home renovation.
Last December, Dennis created an account on the site for the first time and has become a regular player.
Claire Steggles from online casinoÂ Casumo.com, said: 'We are always happy to see our customers win big, and we hope Dennis uses the money to achieve his dreams.
'While a score of Â£65K is a little far off the winning sum we uncovered in our study, for a Â£2 entry it's not bad innings.'
