A lucky Canadian player turned a 1 Euro bet into big jackpot while playing online bingo at a casino. The player, who lives in the United Kingdom, won 321,000 Euros on a 1 Euro bet.
After winning the jackpot, the player, who asked to remain anonymous, said she plans on taking care of her debts and going on a vacation.
“Getting a sum like this has been a real shock, it hasn’t even sunk in yet. You hear about others winning this kind of money in the news but you never think it could happen to you. I can’t wait to put my winnings towards enjoying some summer sun in style.”
