A lucky punter hailing from the United Kingdom hit a large $266,800 progressive jackpot while playing the slot game "Carnival" at the online casino Slotland.
The winner, who is known as SinclairU, said that he has been playing at Slotland for five years and never thought he would ever win a massive jackpot.
The win is the largest in the history of Slotland Casino, as it overtook the $207,000 a US punter hit while playing Treasure Box and the $200,000 won by a British man who played Heavy Metal.
Sinclair told casino management that he plans to put money away for his kids' education and pay off some bills. However, the father of three did say: “I think once I’ve done the sensible stuff there will still be enough for a great vacation. I hope to take the family to Europe."
