A Mind-blowing Win
The lucky player plans to use the jackpot cash to buy a dream home for himself and his girlfriend and send his parents on a magical trip to Canada for their 50th anniversary. There will be more for the winner, as he will then jet off to Dubai with his girlfriend after purchasing a new car.
In his own words, the lucky punter described winning as a completely amazing experience. He said that for long after the win, he had no idea of how much he had won. This was just that his mind could not fathom the figure he saw on his Betfair account balance, £885,000.
He said that he was a regular punter on the Betfair casino platform, but he had never come any close to winning that amount all his life. Immediately after winning the amount, the punter took his girlfriend for dinner to celebrate the good news. They started looking for a dream house the next day.
According to Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom, the casino was delighted to pay the sum of a whopping £885,000 to the winner from just a 60p. He added that every player on the platform had the opportunity to make big wins regardless of the size of his wager, and when they hit their luck, the casino is usually at hand to break the good news.
The spokesperson added that the casino has been in contact with the winner since his big day. In addition to helping him withdraw the wins, the casino also delivered some financial education to the player. In the education, the casino discussed the importance of controlled play, safe gambling tools, and spending the win well. Sometimes punters are overwhelmed by the huge wins they make. Therefore, it is always good that the organisation educates them on using their money and gambling responsibly.
Betfair is a leading gambling platform in the UK. It is licenced by both the Malta Gaming Authority and UK Gambling Commission. The casino has a reputation for quality service, wide coverage of games from various providers, and round-the-clock customer service. It also pays punters their wins as soon as possible.
