GBP 200 000 jackpot win for 21-year-old

When 21-year-old UK online gambler Matt Styles hit an almost GBP 200 000 jackpot at Ladbrokes last Friday he initially feared it was just a wind-up, but he soon realised it was for real, and is now making financial plans he would not previously have thought possible.

A day after celebrating his 21st birthday, the High Wycombe administrator logged on to the Ladbrokes Games website and started playing Deal or No Deal, soon triggering a substatial GBP 196 633 jackpot that has been building since the launch of the game just over one year ago.

Matt, who lives at home with his parents and two sisters, now has big plans that include buying a car and taking a trip to Canada to visit a recently emigrated aunt. But he won't be squandering his big win and is considering investment opportunities.

Matt told Ladbrokes staff: "I'm thrilled with my win but it's only just sinking in - I'm still waiting for someone to tell me it's a wind up!
"Last week was definitely one I won't forget for a long time, turning 21 and then going on to win almost GBP200k in such a short space of time was unbelievable. Maybe some of Noel Edmond's cosmic ordering has rubbed off on me!"

Charlie Goodenough, Acquisition Marketing Manager at Ladbrokes says, "The Deal or No Deal Jackpot took just over a year to trigger and what a fantastic coincidence that our own birthday celebrations corresponded with Matt's 21st birthday. The game, based on the hugely successful television game show, has been extremely popular since its launch and has seen us give away over GBP 14.75 million in prizes."

    "I just started using bitcoin myself. I buy bitcoin using my checking account thru Coinbase. It takes a little longer than using a debit/credit card but if I understand it correctly the fees are lower that way. Then I transfer bitcoin to my wallet at Blockchain before depositing at an online casino. I made two deposits at Slotastic! and one at Slotocash and each time the money was there immediately. The only problem I had was on my first deposit I did not account for the conversion difference when making a minimum amount deposit and my bonus did not get triggered automatically. I got it soon worked out though when I contacted support thru Live Chat and explained the mistake was caused by my first time using bitcoin. They credited my account with the bonus and just suggested I add a little more next time to cover the additional fees and conversion rate differences. I didn't do too good at Slotocash but did much better at Slotastic! and even though I made my deposit using bitcoin there was a message on the Withdraw screen saying I had to send in their Credit Card Authorization Agreement before I could make a withdrawal. I contacted Live Support to clarify and they advised I only had to send in a copy of my drivers license and a recent utility bill to verify my identity not my credit card. After I emailed these documents I received an email the next day advising my documents had been received and approved. I then submitted my withdrawal request and expected an immediate response just like I got on my deposit but it didn't happen. That's been about 7 hours ago now so I'm guessing it might be a day or two at least if I'm lucky before anything happens. But if it happens then that'll be much better than having to wait weeks or months like some have to. I'll update later when the withdrawal is finally completed."
