After building for nine months, the jackpot for the Chain Reactors slot game was hit last week at LadbrokesGames.com by a 40-year-old resident of St Albans.
The lucky player took home a £109,467 windfall after playing during a break at the office. He threw caution to the wind and placed a three-pound bet before seeing his six symbols roll in to award him the jackpot prize, which worked out at a massive £36,489 return for each pound staked.
'Not even an Icelandic bank in its heyday could have offered me interest rates this good,” said the player, whose wife celebrated her birthday two days after the win.
'I was stunned when I won. I tried to save the winning picture on screen but my IT skills obviously leave a lot to be desired. It couldn't have come at a better time, business has been slow and, as a result, the wife and I cancelled our annual ski holiday this year and resigned ourselves to watching the pennies.'
The jackpot winner stated that he is now taking stock of his new financial situation before deciding what to do with his win.
'Its always great news when someone wins on LadbrokesGames.com,” said Emma Thomson Head of Marketing for LadbrokesGames.com.
“The jackpot has been building for nine months and we're already looking forward to our next big winner.'
