A father of three from the UK has hit the jackpot at Betfred, winning a staggering £5.4 million ($7.5 million) while playing a slot game. Michael Clark, who is in his 40s, placed a £1.40 bet on the slot game at a Betfred shop in the town of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
According to Betfred, the odds of winning such a large sum of money on the slot game are incredibly low. However, Clark’s luck was in and he managed to hit the game’s top prize, winning the £5.4 million payout.“I couldn’t believe it when I saw that I had won. I thought there must be some mistake,” Clark said in a statement. “I’m still in shock, but I’m really happy. This money will make a huge difference to my family’s life.”Clark plans to use some of the money to take his family on a luxury vacation and to invest in a property. He also plans to donate a portion of the winnings to charity.“We are thrilled for Michael and his family,” said a Betfred spokesperson. “This win serves as a reminder that you never know when your luck is going to change and a small bet can result in a life-changing sum of money.”
