|Christmas came early for one lucky casino player when he won over £150,000 at attheracescasino.com|
Peter, from Middlesex, struck gold when a £5 side bet on Caribbean Stud Poker displayed a Royal Flush and won him a staggering £125,000. His main bet of £150 won him an additional £30,150 to take his total haul with a single bet to £155,150.
And, he was so surprised with his win that he immediately placed a £1,000 bet just to make sure it was true. To confirm his good fortune he even won that too. Peter said: 'I normally play Blackjack but it wasn’t going as well as normal for me so I switched to Caribbean Stud. How lucky was that?'
At The Races, which is best known for its live horse racing channel, declared that it was the largest ever recorded win on its Casino. A spokesman for attheracescasino.com said: 'We are delighted for Peter. He is one of our most loyal customers and it is great to see our players win large jackpot prizes like this.'
The win could not have come at a better time for Peter with Christmas just around the corner. He also turns 60 this month.
He said: 'I have a large family and we always spend Christmas together. I plan to make the family happy and share my good luck.'
Surely, with such a big windfall Peter will hold back a little bit of money to spoil himself? 'I just might buy myself a Mercedes CL 500,' he added.
