Another person has hit the headlines after winning a mobile jackpot of over £1 million! The 29-year old was spinning away at Melon Madness on his smartphone after placing a €16 bet. His life changed the moment he saw the slots align and saw his jackpot prize display on the scree – £1,405,000.
The lucky winner was playing on his iPhone when he got the ‘Big One’ at bwin Casino’s mobile site. When asked about how he felt when he won, he said the following: “I was at home when I hit the jackpot. It felt great! I can’t believe how lucky I am!”
How much is £1.4 million?
Most of us will not be able to comprehend quite how much £1.4 million is. To put it into a slightly clearer perspective, that amount of money could buy:
– 63,915 football shirts
– 7,490 pairs of Adidas Predator football boots (worn by Mesut Ozil)
– 1 Bugatti Veyron (driven by Samuel Eto’o)
– 1.4% of Gareth Bale (recently purchased for £100 million)
– 2,954 iPhone 5s
– 678,574 honeydew melons – pure melon madness!
