Real-Life Alice in Wonderland Turns Little Into Big With GBP 460,000 Online Casino Win from GBP 1 Spin!

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 19, 2011) - A bingo hall worker was transported into a real-life wonderland when she won £460,134.23 from a £1 spin on one of Sky Vegas's casino games, Alice's Wonderland.

Debbie Mangan from Liverpool scooped the life-changing sum on Thursday September 8th to become Sky Vegas' biggest female winner. The bumper pay-out is Sky Vegas' largest, local jackpot win to date.

Speaking about her win, Debbie, 33, said: "I saw the banner on Sky Vegas saying the jackpot 'must be won', my friends had been playing so I thought I'd give it a go. I still can't believe I won, it hasn't sunk in yet."

It was a winning week all round Sky Vegas, who also celebrated a midi jackpot of £32,000 being won on their popular, matching symbol instant win game, All Sports. Plus, the most recent addition to the casino, Leprechaun's Luck, made another lucky lady £26,000 richer the day after it launched.

In fact, it has been a remarkably lucrative summer for Sky Vegas casino games players. An astonishing £3,000,000 in progressive jackpot prizes was paid out by Sky Vegas over the month of June, which included a spectacular win of £2,642,668.61 from a 90p spin on slot game, Millionaires Club.

The Millionaires Club winner David Robson, gave Debbie some advice: "Take your time with adapting to the new wealth, but also to enjoy it!"

Sky Vegas' Head of Gaming, John Parsonage, said: "This is another huge player win at Sky Vegas and there are plenty more jackpots to be won with the recent launch of Leprechauns Luck and the imminent launch of Sky Millions, exclusive to Sky Vegas."

Henry McLean, Marketing Manager at Ash Gaming, who created the game, was equally thrilled by Miss Mangan's windfall. "We are very pleased Sky Vegas has had such a big winner. It just goes to show anyone can win a life-changing amount of money playing Alice's Wonderland. This player won big from only a £1 spin!"
