23-year-old petrolhead wins a GBP 50,000 sports car

A 23-year-old Southampton University student identified only as Leo has won a GBP 50,000 BMW X4 sports saloon car playing NetEnt’s Live Casino Roulette on the Leo Vegas mobile gambling site.

The fortunate player staked just GBP10 and managed to win the car and an additional GBP 30. Given a choice between the car or a GBP 50,000 cash payment, Leo opted for the latter.

To celebrate his big win, LeoVegas invited Leo to Thruxton racetrack to test out his new motor, with former Top Gear and Fifth Gear presenter Tiff Needell on hand to put him through his paces.

To capture the dynamic action and Leo’s quandary on film (and generate some social media publicity), LeoVegas created a video using car cameras, drones and shoulder mounted cameras, which can be viewed here:

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
