In February, Betfair announced that Sean Ward, a 35 year old chicken farm worker from Lancashire, won £1.3 million for a £2 spin on the Dynamite Riches slot.W

Ward said he initially misread his winnings for a smaller amount: “After working at the chicken farm I was back at my digs with a workmate who I live with and I decided to have a few spins on Betfair Casino.

“I landed the jackpot and showed my phone to my mate to check – he thought it was £1,300 but I told him he’d need to add a few zeros.

“I was in complete shock so had to look at the balance a few times and it still hasn’t sunk in – it’s the most surreal moment of my life.”
