Here are the 3 biggest winners on the UK’s latest, fastest paced gambling systems.
The UK gaming industry has grown year on year but come the end of the 90’s, the industry hit somewhat of a flatline and now going into the millennium it was time to have a re-think and give the customer something to fall in love with again; something to put the excitement back in the hands of the working man.
The ‘Fixed-Odds’ betting terminal (FOBT) was introduced into bookmakers across the land in 2001 and the country was immediately gripped. Online gaming became a huge hit due to its convenience and high payouts.
With household names like Roulette and Blackjack now available and along with other featured xo slot style games, punters no longer had to make the effort to travel all the way to their nearest Casino in order to experience these classics. With FOBT odds as much as 35:1 being offered (and sometimes higher) and with a potential ‘one-spin’ payout of £500 or Online Gaming Jackpots in the £Millions, thrill seekers were now able to make serious cash in little to no time at all.
The introduction of FOBT’s and Online Games resulted in hysteria, with player’s winning a small fortune. Debt’s now being able to be paid off, family holidays paid for with ease, new cars or finally being able to fix the house up (or even buy a brand new one!).
Here are 3 of the biggest success stories from the UKs newly found favourite form of gambling.
1. Jon Heywood, Crewe, £13.2million playing Mega Moolah
Mr. Heywood of Crewe was absolutely delighted with his huge jackpot victory in 2015. He won the Biggy from just a 25p stake. It took a while for Jon to come around to the idea as he nobbily resumed his duty as a Soldier for several days after the success. Needless to say this colossal win changed the 26 year old’s life forever.
2.‘D.P’, £7.9million playing Mega Moolah
It’s made the list again! Unbelievably the increasingly popular game Mega Moolah has the second highest UK winner of all time. An anonymous man only known as ‘D.P’ won the huge jackpot from using his Smartphone! What are the chances! It proves that in today’s age you don’t even have to walk to your local bookies to have a flutter. You can win big all from the comfort of your own home!
3. Neil, Aberdeen, £4 million playing Hall of Gods
Arguably the person with the most beginners’ luck in all of history has to go to Neil from Aberdeen. The family man from Scotland was playing for the very first time in his life. He deposited £30 and it was with his very first spin that he was able to win the huge jackpot of £4 million. The spin only cost him a £4 stake and upon winning he even had to call of the family into the room to double check that he had actually won! I think that would be most people’s reaction after receiving such fortune.
