April 2024: A Geordie construction worker cemented himself as a jackpot winner after turning a lucky £1 bet into almost £20,000 on a visit to Grosvenor Casino Newcastle.

The mystery man and Newcastle local, who has chosen to remain anonymous, placed a £1 bet in the Blackjack side bet game, Ace King Progressive. Shortly after going head-to-head with the dealer, the winner was left in disbelief after discovering that he’d nailed the jackpot, winning £19,400.

To win from a £1 chip, both the player and dealer must draw a Blackjack match by both holding the Ace and King of the same suit.

The winner now plans to down tools and has set his sights on whisking his wife and daughter away on a luxury holiday.

Speaking about his jackpot prize, the mystery winner said: “To be honest, the feeling of winning still hasn’t sunk in, I'm still on cloud nine. The win has come at the right time as I was hoping to take the family away on holiday and with the money, I can do just that!”

Wayne Sheekey, General Manager at Grosvenor Casino Newcastle, said, “A massive congratulations to our lucky winner. He’s been a regular at the casino for some time so it’s amazing to see a jackpot come his way. We look forward to seeing pictures of his holiday when he next visits the casino.”
