A spokesperson for Betway, where the huge sum was won, said: “The woman had barely been playing for long, so was shocked to see how much she’d finally won.

“She’d been playing the Jack and the Beanstalk slot, which has been waiting for a big winner for quite some time now,” he added.

The Jack and the Beanstalk slot is a 5-reel, 20-payline, slot and is based on the classic tale with which it shares its name. Players can collect treasure with the special features and is available to play from 20p per spin.

The slot is one of the most popular slot games on the internet. Betway offers a series of free promotional bonuses to British customers, with up to £1000 deposit bonuses.

Earlier this year, a British man won dozens of thousands after a string of fortunate bets on slot machines. A 36-year-old woman was also fortunate, after taking home nearly £40,000. Ready to give it a whirl? Hit the link below now for your chance.
