English Man Wins Record Jackpot At William Hill

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

A 23 year old man from Doncaster, England has won the largest jackpot ever at William Hill's online casino while playing "Millionaires Club".

Lien Bailey won the £807,313.43 progressive jackpot but was unaware of the epic win because his wi-fi internet connection dropped out immediately after triggering the small fortune. Bailey remained oblivious of his good fortune until a William Hill representative contacted him a few days later.

"I was playing the Millionaires Club on the Vegas slots at William Hill when the connection went down and when I went back on the jackpot had been won, so I never thought anything more of it. After William Hill told me that I had landed the prize I still thought they were pulling my leg, but when I checked online on the game the money was in my account. I have not been able to go to sleep since, it is amazing and it’s completely life-changing for me." Bailey said of his win.

Rupert Adams, a William Hill spokesman commented, saying "This is the biggest William Hill online game win we've ever heard of, so as well as winning himself a fortune Lien has gone in to the record books too."

Bailey said he will take some of his winnings and purchase a new Range Rover, a Honda Integra race car, and tickets to watch his favorite football team at Wembley Stadium.

I couldn't imagine winning this much money and not even knowing. That is absolutely crazy.

Wow, What an amazing set of coincidences. First to win and not know about it, then for the wifi connection to go down a split second after he won....... That would be one good surprise!
