A man got lucky while playing on his favorite slot machine at a casino in England, winning a jackpot prize of over £18,000. Christopher Holder, age 48, resident of Cumbria, is elated and still astonished at his awesome luck when he played the Cleopatra slot machine at the Grosvenor Casino located in Blackpool, Lancashire, England.
General Manager of the casino Murray Pauline said, "We're thrilled to have a jackpot winner. It's great to see people enjoying our gaming area and having a big win like this creates a really exciting buzz around the new additions to the casino."
The most recent change made in UK casino legislation allows a progressive linked jackpot for slot machines inside the same casino area to a maximum prize of £20,000 - which is definitely good news for gamblers who love to play on slots.
When asked what he is going to do with the prize, Mr. Holder said that he's now planning to enjoy his £18,231 prize by going on a Las Vegas trip with his wife as a way to celebrate their upcoming anniversary.
He said, "It's unbelievable, I never thought that this would happen. My wife and I are planning a trip to Vegas in 2019, I turn 50, she turns 60, and we have a big anniversary coming up. This will definitely help pay for that. We should also be able to pay off some of the mortgage, and still have some left to enjoy."
