A Bedfordshire online punter, Jim Riley, is GBP 95 771 richer this week after busting the jackpot on Will Hill's Pharoah's Treasure progressive slot at Vegas.William Hill.com

The lucky online gambler opened his account when William Hill plc launched its sportsbook and casino website in 1998. His occasional GBP 30 punt on the horses never brought him much luck, and although he had some small wins on the casino games, the big jackpots had always passed him by.

A company spokesman said that Riley's luck improved as a result of a Feng Shui revelation, which occurred when a work colleague visited the house shared by Jim and his partner Jenny and pointed out the fatal Feng Shui dissonance in their home - the toilet door was always open and all their wealth was going down the drain. The couple wisely took the advice, kept the bathroom door firmly shut and with immediate effect the 48-year-old grandfather hit his winning streak!

It all started with winning GBP 3 000 on the Roulette at William Hill Casino, followed by another 3 big wins on the slot games and a GBP 1 200 jackpot from Lucky 88. All in all he has won nearly GBP 20 000 prize money since January in a prelude to the massive GBP 95 000 he won on Pharaoh's Treasure this week.

Speaking about his win, Jim, a self employed electrician said, "Jenny and my friends kept telling me it was just fluke, they didn't believe I could keep winning until I won the jackpot!"

He already has some of the money earmarked for trips abroad and gifts for his family. "I will take my dad to Canada for a holiday and send my brother to New Zealand as he has always wanted to go there. I'm also going to spoil my grandchildren with presents, but my pension is only worth half of its value now, so I will save the rest for my retirement."

    "thank you for your response May be my english is too bad to be understood into my post i tried to explain what i did not like: about  your  rules for  free tournaments i played for  free and  p aid- Iliked  to play at both. BUt  that I not understood  it is if  your rules say to deposit  each time to have the right to play at each freeroll, why  3 deposit  with just one freebiie cancelll this right ? because i used  one freebie.just after 3 deposits ? I accepted the  fact that you dont give casback because  before my last deposit i won $100 at a  free fournament. I did not have the choice.:) But with all that it seems me that you dont encourage  your players to deposit regulary.or often. bul it is only my opinion"
