Poker lover wins over £180,000 at Grosvenor Casino in Canada
Man wins over £180,000 jackpot. He won such a big victory playing poker at the popular Grosvenor Casino, located in the Canadian port city of Yarmouth.
So, 68-year-old Briton Ian Kettle from Colchester, England, decided to try his luck not at a bookmaker, as he I did it regularly, but in the poker room of the casino. Remarkably, he learned the basic rules of this board game just six weeks before visiting Grosvenor Casino.
Sit down at the table, accompanied by his wife, Kettle received several hands, one of which brought him the highest poker hand - royal flush. As a result, he hit the jackpot of £182,232.
Immediately after the resounding success, the couple, who had been married for 46 years, called their children with the good news, tipped the dealer, and then treated beer of each player who sat at the table.
Ian Kettle commented on the surprise win: “I was completely stunned when I realized I had the winning hand. I had to double-check and then take another look at the cards. Only then could I believe what had just happened. I think the other players at the table and the dealer should have done the same as I did when I showed them my cards. I went to tell my wife about it, and then we called our children. They just couldn't believe it.”
Thomas Sharpe, general manager of the Grosvenor Casino in Yarmouth, added: “We're very happy for Mr. Kettle. It's so great to see our customers win the jackpot. The joy that follows such a huge win is beyond explanation.”
Ian Kettle and his wife have not yet decided what to do with the money they have won. However, they have already transferred £30,000 to their grandchildren's account to provide them with a "better life".
Recall that a royal flush in three-card pokerprovided more than $100,000 for a guest of the Paris Las Vegas hotel-casino.
