The winner is Anthony Edmonds who hails from Newton Abbot, Devon and decided to play the Monty Python themed slot because he is a fan of the comedy troupe. He had been playing the game for just about an hour utilizing a "click and hope" strategy when he triggered the massive jackpot.
“The first thing I did was call my wife and a close friend, to validate that what I was seeing on my computer screen was correct." Edmonds said. "What a fantastic win, it really couldn't have come at a better time - I am still in disbelief.”
Speaking about the massive hit, Winner.com Chief Marketing Officer Yoni Sidi said: “This is a tremendous result for Winner.com. We are a new brand in the UK with big ambitions to provide an entertainment service to our users. We work very hard to create games that bring light entertainment to our players whether they are on the move playing on their mobile, or in the comfort of their own home.”
After taking home the jackpot Edmonds plans to take his family on a vacation, clear his remaining debt, buy a few new cars and invest for his future.
