The roofer won £258,000 thanks to one of the rarest blackjack hands ever
The life of a roofer who visited a Leeds casino with his work mates changed forever after winning the £258,750 jackpot. Its winner was 36-year-old Richard.
The situation took place at the Grosvenor Casino Leeds Westgate in Leeds, England. Richard and his work friends from the city of Darlington decided to spend the evening in the casino after a hard day. The main character is a fan of card entertainment, so he quickly got the hang of the blackjack table and got off to a good start in the gaming session. He couldn’t imagine what would happen a few minutes later when he and the dealer were dealt a king and an ace, one of the rarest hands in the game.
Commenting on his win, Richard stated, “To be honest, during the hobby, I never realized I had won the jackpot. My friend wanted to tell me about it, but even he couldn’t believe it at the time. The amount turned out to be something exorbitant, unreal to me. This was the first time I had visited Grosvenor Casino Leeds Westgate. But it was the happiest night of my life. I’d also like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at the venue who helped me celebrate with flair.”
Grosvenor Casino Leeds Westgate general manager Kat Riley added: “We can only hope that this good fortune continues and that our guests can celebrate more wins, both here in beautiful Leeds and at our other venues around the UK.”
It is already known that Richard decided to put most of the money he won into a deposit account at the bank. According to the hero, he and his girlfriend have been saving for several years to buy a house and start a new chapter in their lives.
He has also decided to join his father on a golf championship trip to Las Vegas scheduled for next year.
Recall, the legendary Mega Moolah slot from Microgaming brought the player almost 4 million euros.
