Just got that email also.

I hate that kind of advertising.

What are we suppose to think?... "Oh great I better go place 40,000.00 on number 23 and I too could maybe win 1.4M" :rolleyes:

The other question is, playying at such high stakes for 30 minutes, he probably lost more than that.

Also its probably acumalative winnings!

Here's the press release from Will Hill Online:

William Hill are today writing out a cheque for 1,426,000 to a Sussex based internet client who hit a winning streak online at when his lucky number, twenty-three came up trumps for him whilst playing roulette.

Wishing to only be Known as Jason H, from Sussex, the 40 yr old local businessman is a regular player with Hills and hit a lucky run with his favourite number '23'.

Starting off with his usual bets, Jason built up his balance after a good run until his luck REALLY kicked in!

Caught up in the moment he wagered his entire balance around his lucky number and then watched in amazement as it came in for him, netting a cool six-figure amount.

Not content to stop there he followed the same tactics to see 23 drop again and again, boosting his payout to a total of 1,426,000!

At this point, Jason H didn't believe his luck and called Hills to check that his computer wasn't playing up and confirm his win was real.

"It was real alright," said Hills spokesman David Hood,

''We must be the world's luckiest betting company....... for punters! Since Christmas, we have written three 1+million cheques out to winning customers and at this rate we're aiming to tackle the credit crunch one 'Willionaire' at a time! For Jason H, it wasn't a case of third time lucky, but 'twenty-third' time lucky as the number '23' came up several times in short succession. The client, because he was on such a hot streak kept increasing his stakes with his winnings until he hit that magical 1.4miilion win. Incredible!''

Jason H's win comes just weeks after Fred Craggs's historic 1million pound 8-horse accumulator win from a 50p bet, and hot on the heels of another Hills internet casino player, the mystery Mr X, who celebrated Christmas with a 1million slot machine win.

Mr H's win comes just weeks after Yorkshireman Fred Craggs won 1m after placing a 50p bet, and another internet casino player, known only as Mr X, landed 1m on a slot machine game in December.
