Neil Foot, a football fan from the UK, had visited William Hill to place some bets on midweek games. However, while there he decided to play progressive jackpot game Goldrush Showdown. He made a £1 bet, and the rest is history.

He said: ‘My win is really down to my girlfriend, Ellie. She is always moaning at me for being online – on the Internet or looking up the footie odds. It was only because we weren’t able to meet up that day that I was playing on my computer, and look what happened! We’re now planning a lovely holiday and she won’t be able to moan at me for a while now!’

William Hill spokesperson Lili Huang said: "It seems that Goldrush Showdown likes Neil as much as he likes the game. William Hill Vegas has paid out more than £2,000,000 in jackpots since the website was setup, and it has become one of our most popular gaming sites.’
