British Soldier Wins £13.2 Million…All From A 25p Stake!
By Jane Ambers for 123Casino, 08 December 2016
Life was well and truly turned around for one British soldier, who netted a cool £13.2 million win after playing online at Betway.com. What’s even more amazing is that he entered the realms of the Betway casino winners using just a 25p bet!
For Jon Heywood, 26, from Crewe, the money could not have come at a better time. At the time of winning, the soldier – who had previously toured Afghanistan – was recovering from the death of his grandfather just months before.
After scooping the £13,213,838.68 jackpot, the soldier vowed to use his winnings for good, starting with buying the “best possible medical treatment” for his father, who was awaiting a heart and lung transplant.
Jon said: “That’s more important than anything. Family comes first and I’d give all this money back for him to be healthy again.”
Now that he’s amongst one of the many Betway casino winners, the family-focused soldier also plans on treating his relatives to a relaxing Mediterranean cruise, which we’re sure will go down well with them!
However, Jon does have some ideas for treating himself with his winnings. First and foremost is a yellow Bentley Continental GT!
He said: “I never even dreamed of driving a Bentley, let alone owning one!”
The massive jackpot was scooped when Jon was playing the Mega Moolah game. His winnings are set to break the record for the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game – ever!
Alan Alger, a Betway spokesman, said: “We couldn’t be happier for Jon – he’s an incredibly nice guy and his family will benefit immensely from his huge win.”
With even more Betway casino winners made every single day, we can’t wait to see how the next big winner will spend their jackpot!
