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."

    "The 'Billy Goat Curse' has been broken! It's pretty interesting that the Cubs made it to the World Series on the date of the 46th anniversary of William Sianis' death. As the story goes, Sianis was not allowed to enter the stadium with his goat and missed out on seeing the Cubs play in Game 4 of 1945 World Series. Ticked off about it, he 'cursed' the team so they'd never make the World Series again. Good article from CBSSports Odd coincidence? Creator of Cubs 'curse' died on Oct. 22, Cubs win pennant Oct. 22"

    "Really honestly this is all going to come down at the end of the day.  The bonus offerings that casinos offer to sign up, to entice you to deposit, or the loyalty bonuses given for being a regular customer.  This is where 95% of players get caught up because they huge a match bonus or sign up bonus.  Take it without reading the fine print, find out later it was only for sports book, slots, or whatever the restriction was.  Play whatever game they please. Then of course we have the other 5% of the complaints, that come with the standard casino we can do what we want clause.  This is where the other small percentage of folks get caught up mainly.  Whether they won too much at once and the casino wants to point fingers on fraud, or they just don't want to pay. I can see this doing the industry some good, finally painting a clear picture of what your getting into.  Yet at the same time, I don't think this will be a catch all."
