UK Player Plays With a 25p Stake, And Comes Away With £2.6 Million!

  • By Jane Ambers for 123Casino, 06 December 2016

Ladbrokes are no strangers to paying out big on their slot machines. Over the last few years they’ve made some huge cash payouts to players, creating hundreds of lucky Ladbrokes casino winners. But none can be more spectacular than a £2.6 million jackpot won by a player from the Midlands!

Spectacularly, the winner – an anonymous businessman – won the amount after just making one 25p spin on the Mega Moolah game, where the prize fund grows every time a player spins the wheel.

Known as a progressive jackpot, these are often the most profitable games for players to focus on.

The win is the largest in the history of Ladbrokes bookmakers, who were the first to congratulate the lucky winner after news spread of this enormous win.


David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “We’ve never known a luckier punter. It is a truly incredible win.

“He was playing in the early hours when he struck gold.”

But the anonymous businessman isn’t the first person to hit headlines for becoming one of the latest Ladbrokes casino winners. Just a few months earlier The Mirror reported that a mum won a £1.3 million jackpot after getting fed-up with her partner watching football on TV.

Lisa Potter, 33, from Witney, Oxon, was so annoyed with her partner ignoring her as he sat watching Euro 2012, that she turned to Ladbrokes Bingo on her laptop to keep herself entertained.

A £5 stake later, and she was a millionaire!

All this just goes to show that you don’t need to bet big to win big! Maybe your next spin will make you one of the big Ladbrokes casino winners?

I can definitely identify with that woman who turned to Ladbrokes to alleviate boredom, haha! I go on the site every other day and it's just SO much fun. There are always so many new games going up on the site...I love the Jackpot Giant game, in particular. It's so good!

Progressive jackpots are definitely the slot games to look out for because the amount you can win is just astronomical! That's what I always recommend my friends do: target these games, because they're your best shot! I myself have got a good deal of money out of them over the years!

Ladbrokes are fantastic - I love all of their slot games! Last year I won £3851 on the Gold Rally game, it was so much fun! The customer service team is beyond helpful, and they're so insanely friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend them any day of the week.
