A 39 year old man from Sunderland UK shocked the online casino world when he won over $1 million on a bet of only 18 cents while playing a slot game at PartyCasino.  According to the Sun, the chance of hitting the jackpot on that bet was an astounding 4.25 million to 1. 

Brian Somers, a gardener from a council estate, was the lucky player to pull of this amazing feat.  His exact winnings were $1,092,957 (or nearly £551,000).  Somers, a father of one, currently only earns £200 a week (the equivalent of about $15,000 per year).  And it seems as though the gardener has already decided how he will enjoy his new fortune.

"The way I see it, this is the perfect amount of money to win….It won't change me - I'll just be more relaxed. The big difference is I've got a permanent smile on my face." Says Somers.  “I'm hoping to use the money to make myself and my family secure for the rest of their lives. I want to buy a house, go on holiday and get a new car. I also want to expand my gardening business.”

Brian’s big win occurred at PartyCasino last week, while playing the Party Mega Jackpot slot.  Such a large outcome on such a small initial bet is a record win at the online casino, has seen their share of big winners in the past. 

When Somers saw the screen flashing before him showing the amount he had won, he couldn’t believe his eyes and thought that it was some sort of mistake.  He apparently, turned off his computer and even unplugged it.  But when he turned it back on his balance sure enough did read over $1 million. 

“Brian is a great guy and deserves it and we wish him and his family all the very best for the future.” Stated a spokesperson for PartyCasino.com.
