A locally loved businessman has won a jaw-dropping £133,000 at the Grosvenor Casino in Leicester this month.
The family man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was playing Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em Poker one evening when his luck came with a royal flush. He was completely shocked by the fortune of his hand and couldn’t believe that he would gain a tremendous amount of winnings that night.
On the question of how he plans to spend his mega-winnings, the Leicester local plans to treat his family to a ‘dreamy holiday’ and he also will be able to pay off the mortgage on his brand-new family home.
Speaking after his jackpot win, the Leicester winner said: “It’s amazing when life brings you good fortune unexpectedly. I am so amazed by this win, I still feel the electricity when I fully took in how much money I had won – what a shock! My family couldn’t believe it, I still can barely believe it!”
The businessman has been a regular at Grosvenor Casino Leicester for a long time and has played the £1 bet game for over five years.
The staff at the casino are said to be elated by his win.
“We absolutely love it when our players are lucky in their games, and this is just another spectacular instance,” said Paul Davies, General Manager at Grosvenor Casino Leicester.
“This player is so beloved by the team, so it is truly amazing to witness and celebrate this win with him. We hope that the luck in the air holds strong for our many other players in the casino!”
