One lucky grandfather from Weston-Super- Mare won £391k jackpot while playing Leprechaun’s Luck Slots at Gala Bingo.
Unable to sleep the restless shift worker, who wishes to remain anonymous, logged on to have a quick play on to Gala Bingo's
popular five-reel Irish themed Leprechaun’s Luck slot game. Just minutes later the 61-year-old hit the pot of gold worth £391,146.
In total disbelief the ecstatic aircraft refueller had to wait until the morning to confirm his eyes weren’t deceiving him and he in fact clearly had the luck of the Irish. Still in shock, he said: “I keep pinching myself. This kind of thing doesn't happen to me! I’ve always longed to be my own boss and this win has allowed me to do just that. I've just handed in my notice and now plan to set up my own gardening business.”
He added: “I’m also looking forward to spoiling my family. My fifth grandchild is due in the summer and winning on galabingo.com will allow us to treat the whole family.”
Lesley Whyte, consumer PR manager for Gala said: “We give away over £62 million a month and always love hearing how our players plan on spending their winnings. We wish this lucky customer all the best in starting his new gardening business and spoiling his entire family. While our Leprechaun’s Luck jackpot may have just gone, there’s still plenty of opportunity for our players to strike lucky with our other games such as Alice’s Wonderland, which currently has a jackpot of nearly £100k.”
