A punter playing William Hill's Pig Wizard mobile slot hit the win of a lifetime last week, when they took home the game's £1,659,372 progressive jackpot on a £1 wager.
The winner wishes to remain anonymous, but we can report that he is from the town of Rutherglen, and ended up leaving his job at a factory following his big win, starting an early retirement. He also plans to give money away to family and friends.
Recalling his win the punter said: “I kept saying over and over again ‘this can’t be true’. I didn’t sleep for two whole nights and my wife was climbing the walls as we waited over the Bank Holiday to see the money in our account."
A William Hill Spokesman added: “We really couldn’t be happier for him and his family. He’s a lovely guy who can now look forward to retirement with no money worries – not bad for a GBP 1 investment!”
