Jackpot of £5.88m Won at Butlers Bingo

Ever dreamed of being a millionaire? One man is living the dream after winning £5,883,044.43 in a single 30p spin at Butlers Bingo. John Orchard, 60, sat down to play online bingo and headed for the slots section, where he chose a progressive jackpot game. Moments later he realized he had won the jackpot – but didn’t believe it.

Even after the company called to tell him that he had won, he was in disbelief and thought it was a joke. He insisted that they speak to his wife Linda, who was assured that it was really happening and that they really had won the whopping sum of money.

The father-of-four had only been playing at the site for a few days when he placed the fateful 30p spin – and now his life will never be the same.

Ian O’Farrell, Head of Promotions at ButlersBingo.com, is quoted on various bingo blog sites as saying: “ButlersBingo.com, part of the Microgaming Bingo Network, is thrilled to be a record-breaker and pay out the biggest online bingo win ever. We cannot wait to deposit £5,883,044.43 into John’s bank account! With over 200 casino games and dozens of jackpots to choose from, anyone could be the next big winner.”

It’s the biggest win ever given away on an online bingo site. John hasn’t quite figured out what he’ll do with the money, but has quit his job and splashed out on a £40,000 Jaguar. He’s planning to meet with the rest of his family to celebrate and decide what they’ll do with the cash. Congratulations to John and his family!
