Superstitious winner


Player sees ill omens in jackpot win

A Chinese player created something of a stir at the Jackpot City online casino group this week when he expressed reservations about cashing in a GBP 4 444 jackpot win, according to a press release from the company.

The player hit the WowPot jackpot, but was concerned that all those figure 4's in the reward might be inauspicious and a harbinger of death.

A spokesman for the group with the unlikely name of Terry Maverick is quoted in the material as saying: "The player contacted our customer services department, quite concerned about the winning amount. He was obviously keen not to lose out on the money, but at the same time wary of bringing bad luck on himself or his family.

"It is a first for us, where a player refuses to accept the cheque for their winnings. According to Chinese culture the number 4 is pronounced like the word for death and is considered as a very unlucky number.

"We're still talking to the player and working out the best approach to handle this, which is sensitive to the player's beliefs and concerns, but ensures that he does not lose out on his winnings."

Perhaps a conversion to another currency might ameliorate the player's fears....do you think?
