DARTS FAN HITS ONLINE SLOT FOR GBP 258,670
12th March, 2013 at 10:09:04
And his stake was just 20p!
Brit darts player Richard Taylor tried a little something different on the William Hill
online casino this week, wagering 20p on a spin on a slot machine that immediately delivered a £ 258,670 windfall.
45-year-old call centre worker Taylor was having trouble sleeping ahead of his night shift but, instead of playing darts as his normal cure for insomnia, he went online and placed a 20p bet on the Super Spins Bar X slot...with spectacular results.
It's still not really sunk in," Taylor told casino management. "It's about the equivalent of 20 years wages as I won't pay any tax on my winnings.
He added: It's the kind of thing that happens to other people, but I never thought I'd ever get that kind of money for just 20p.
I've not got a car at present, but that will probably be my first buy. I currently lodge with friends, so now I can buy my own home.
It's not enough for me to retire, but it will make life a lot easier. I won't be worrying about the bills and I'll be able to go wherever I want on holiday.
