A BGO online casino punter in the UK enjoyed extraordinarily good luck on the slots over the past month, striking two major jackpots for a total of over GBP 1.75 million.
The player, a UK woman identified by her nom de plume of Sandam, started her lucky run with a GBP20 stake on the casinos IGT MegaJackpots Star Lanterns slot on Good Friday, hitting a GBP 1.13 million jackpot.
Just under a month later she returned to the same game to hit another jackpot with a similar bet…this one for just over GBP 627,000.
Taking a novel approach to reporting such unusual feats, the casino noted that statistically speaking there’s more chance of being struck by lightning (10m:1), giving birth to identical quadruplets (13m:1), being hit by a falling aircraft part (1 in 10m) or being attacked by a shark (11.5m:1) than scooping two seriously large rewards on the MegaJackpots Star Lanterns game.
“I just couldn’t believe it when I won the first jackpot” says ‘Sandam’ who is in her 40s. “But when the second win happened less than a month later I thought there must be a mistake. The first thing I’ll splash out on is a new car and there’ll be lots of treats for the family lined up too.”
