A 47 year old man from Turin, Italy has won €100,000 in 888.it's Money Drop game, the first player ever to do so.
The lucky player, Guido G. was presented his jackpot check by 888.it CEO Pier Francesco Geraci during a celebratory dinner. Geraci commented on the big win, saying "Every time one of our clients wins it is as if we won too. It is thanks to them that 888.it continues to grow and to receive the appreciation not only of other professionals, but also all our players, expert and novice. Guido is the first winner of one of our most fun games and it is only natural that we would want to meet him to deliver the Jackpot prize money in person and celebrate this victory with him."
For his part, Guido was very excited saying "I do not believe it, maybe I'm dreaming! I know the game from the TV, but I never tried it online and I would never have imagined winning. I had no winning strategy, just beginner's luck!"
Money Drop is a wagering game based off of the television program of the same name.
