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.
