Blacksmith wins $8million world record jackpot

A blacksmith from Switzerland has won the world’s biggest ever online jackpot after winning $8 million playing on Intercasino’s Millionaires Club progressive slot machine game.

Omar Basseo, 29, who collected his money from model Sophie Anderton, won the life-changing amount of money after playing on the game for the very first time.

"This is amazing. I am in total shock. It will completely change my life. I still cannot believe it as I never win anything and this is the first time I have played. I keep expecting to wake up and find this is a dream. I don't know what I will do with the money but I am looking forward to treating my family to a really great summer holiday, it will be the first time many of them have flown. I enjoy being a blacksmith but I need never work again,” beamed Mr Basseo.

If and when Basseo does take his family on a summer holiday it will be a unique experience from him as well; he has never travelled more than 50km away from his home!
