Will Hill player strikes it rich


Finishing 2008 in style this week, and getting 2009 off to a running start, William Hill Casino player SimonB cracked a sublime GBP 227 054 progressive jackpot on the Pharaoh's Treasure slot....on a 40p winning line!

The thirty-something Staffordshire online player's initial stake took him to the King Tut's Tomb bonus round on the Egyptian-themed slot game, where a mixture of memory and skill helped him to unearth the three jackpot-winning Tutankhamen's masks in the bonus game, producing a life-changing win.

"I still can't quite believe it but I'll certainly be celebrating the New Year with a bang now," said the delighted player. "I've won a few hundred pounds before but nothing remotely like this. It's out of this world."

SimonB wasn't the only big winner; over at an as yet unidentified Vegas Technologies powered casino, believed to be either Golden Casino or SuperSlots, an online gambler scooped a blackjack progressive jackpot for $155 848 Sunday.

And in Sydney, Australia a factory worker who found refuge from Vietnam 20 years ago has won a A$ 6 million Powerball jackpot. The 43-year-old father of two, who wishes to remain anonymous, had his lucky numbers drawn on Christmas Day but had to wait five anxious days before his win was confirmed.

He plans to buy his two daughters a house each, pay for them to study, and continue his own studies, which he was forced to abandon when he left Vietnam, The Daily Telegraph reports.

"I'd love for my daughters to become a doctor and a teacher, good people to help Australia," he said. "When I came to Australia I had to work as a labourer to earn my living. In Vietnam I studied to become a manager - now I would like to study computing or something like that."

The man said that his life had been hard, and the big win obviously was going to change that; "Never give up hope. The future is always a blue sky. You never know what is going to happen," he said.
