The news of a million plus jackpot has been some time coming and therefore is all that much sweeter. To add to the sweetness are the facts that this million is in British Pounds and not the usual U.S Dollars and that this is the fourth millionaire made by William Hill in the last 12 months.
A recent press release by William Hill identified the lucky winner as 'Simon' from Hampshire. Other information about him has been withheld at his request. Simon was playing Clover Rollover at William Hill Bingo when he made the hit with a Ł1 spin. He saw five lucky shamrocks lining up and was richer by Ł1,566,056.97. In terms of U.S Dollars this amounts to over 2.3 million. This hit by Simon is reportedly the biggest at any U.K. based online casino. Like all big winners Simon is currently in a state of shock. He knows that this win will change his life but he wants to "have a think" before he makes any decisions.
This is the fourth time within a year that William Hill spokeswoman Jennie Prest is making such an announcement. One would have thought that the online casino might not have been all that happy at having to dish out more than a million pounds again, but Jennie is thrilled. After all it is great publicity for the casino and helps in drawing the traffic. Speaking about the winner she said, "This is one chap who won't be worrying about the credit crunch when it comes to buying his friends and family Christmas presents!" Jennie is hoping that the Clover Rollover jackpot will grow to a similar amount soon. The Clover Rollover progressive jackpot was introduced at the William Hill Bingo website in March this year. It starts at Ł100,000. Within a space of eight months it has breached the Ł1.5 million level. Now with this popularity the jackpot should grow at a faster rate. Players have been tracking this game since June this year when it breached Ł700,000. Since then it has jumped by over Ł10,000 a day on many days.
William Hill's millionaire saga began a week before Christmas last year when a player from Oxfordshire won Ł1.1 million at a progressive jackpot on William Hill Casino. Then Fred Craggs won Ł1million in February on an 8-horse accumulator. The third winner was Jason H from Sussex, who won Ł1.4 million in May at when his chosen number '23' hit a massive winning streak. Now Simon has topped them all with his over Ł1.5 million win.
