Talk about beginner's luck!
A player from London, who had barely registered with the popular 888 Casino online gaming site, found himself nearly a quarter of a million pounds richer after hitting the jackpot on one of the games.
The player, known as JH, joined 888 Casino at the end of July after downloading the free software and opening a real money account.
A week later, he decided to try out the super games and came upon the popular King Kong video slot game.
This game is a huge favourite among players, not only for its popular movie inspired giant gorilla theme, but also because of this bonus and feature rounds.
Winnings in this game can be multiplied by up to 7,500 times.
After trying out the 25 pay line game, JH was suddenly stunned to find that he had hit the jackpot and was £230,000 richer!
"I couldn't believe it," said JH, recalling his moment of victory. "I've only been playing for a week."
"It would be nice to get this every week!" he quipped.
The Chief Operating Officer of 888.com, Itai Pazner said about the win: "The £230,000 jackpot payout is excellent news and indicates to our players the life changing potential of 88.com's games."
"We are delighted to congratulate JH on his good fortune and wish him and all our players the very best of luck at 888.com," he added.
