£2.5m Win Is William Hill’s Biggest Ever

A single mother in her early 40s from Northern Scotland was celebrating after becoming a millionaire on Valentine’s Day - scooping a whopping £2.558m with William Hill bookmakers. The lady, who works in a school and wishes to remain anonymous was playing William Hill Vegas when she bagged the accumulated jackpot which had been building over 18 months on The Festival Of Lights Vegas game.

She has already booked a trip to Disneyworld for herself and her seven-year-old son but other than that has no idea what she will do with her winnings.

“I was washing the dishes this morning and thought to myself – ‘no matter how much money you have, you still have to wash the dishes.’ It is all still so surreal. You obviously play these games, hoping to win a couple of quid, not a couple of million. I’m still stunned.”

A spokesperson from William Hill said of the win – “This, by our reckoning is the biggest sum that a William Hill customer has ever won. It is an incredible, life changing sum of money.”

It was not the first time this lady had been celebrating in the last 12 months having netted £30,000 with William Hill just three months ago.
