Player scores a million in sterling at Ladbrokes online

A player from the north east of England who wishes to remain anonymous became Internet gambling's latest major winner over the weekend when his GBP2.25 wager on the King Cashalot online slot delivered a stunning GBP 1 031 985.20 jackpot.

Mr.S hit the biggest jackpot yet recorded at Ladbrokes Casino - a marvellous present for his birthday next week.

Casino management report that the player was astonished, and not a little shocked, when he called the casino in the early hours of the morning to confirm his big win, commenting that he intended to enjoy a brandy as a celebratory nightcap.

Mr.S will be paid out in one massive tranche, and will be offered financial advice, a spokesman confirmed.

The major win leaves Mega Moolah as Ladbrokes' biggest jackpot currently on offer at GBP 5.25 million and counting.
