A woman from South London has found herself £1.7m richer by winning TWICE on the same online slot machine within a month, beating huge odds of 625 million to 1.

ONLINE GAMER BEATS ODDS OF 625 MILLION TO 1  TO SCOOP £1.7m IN JACKPOTSOnline gaming company bgo has revealed that the winner, who plays under the name ‘Sandam’, won when staking two £20 bets on the game MegaJackpots Star Lanterns. The staggering win follows a father of two from Cheshire’s huge £6m win on bgo last Christmas from a £1.25 bet!

‘Sandam’s’ first jackpot win happened on Good Friday when she scooped a hefty £1.13m. Just three and a half weeks later, she found herself winning over £627,000 by once again hitting the jackpot on the same game. Statistically there’s more chance of being struck by lightning (10m:1), giving birth to identical quadruplets (13m:1), winning an Oscar (only 11,500:1) or being attacked by a shark (11.5m:1) than scooping the two wins on bgo’s MegaJackpots Star Lanterns game.

“I just couldn’t believe it when I won the first jackpot” says ‘Sandam’ who is in her 40s. “But when the second win happened less than a month later I thought there must be a mistake. The first thing I’ll splash out on is a new car and there’ll be lots of treats for the family lined up too.”

Allan Turner, Head of Marketing at bgo comments: “These two wins happening to the same player within a month is just staggering: the odds are crazy but she has beaten them! We’re really pleased for ‘Sandam’ – she’s obviously got the magic touch and the boss should be worried – he doesn’t like being beaten!”
