Online Gamer Beats Odds of 625 Million to 1 – to Scoop £1.7m in Jackpots

A woman from South London has become £1.7m richer by winning not once, but twice on the same online slot machine in just one month, beating unbelievable odds of 625 million to 1.

The online gaming company BGO Casino has announced that the winner, known as ‘Sandam’, made two £20 bets on the game MegaJackpots Star Lanterns. This incredible win comes after a father of two from Cheshire won a massive £6m from a £1.25 bet on BGO last Christmas.

‘Sandam’ initially won a whopping £1.13m on Good Friday. Then, just three and a half weeks later, she won over £627,000 by hitting the jackpot again on the same game. The chances of achieving this double win on BGO’s MegaJackpots Star Lanterns game are more remote than being struck by lightning, giving birth to identical quadruplets, winning an Oscar, or being attacked by a shark.

“I couldn’t believe it when I won the first jackpot,” said ‘Sandam’, who is in her 40s. “But when the second win happened less than a month later, I thought there must be a mistake. The first thing I’ll treat myself to is a new car, and I have lots of treats lined up for my family as well.”

Allan Turner, Head of Marketing at BGO, commented, “Sandam has been a customer since 2015. This double jackpot win proves that with the right strategy, big games do pay out. We are witnessing the growing popularity of these games. We take pride in providing exceptional customer experiences and a wide range of games for our players. It brings us great satisfaction when we can pay out on life-changing jackpots like these!”

BGO was launched in 2012 with the goal of offering the best casino, bingo, and slot products under a single brand, dedicated to delivering an outstanding player experience.
