South Africa’s Thunderbolt Casino R700,000 Winner
James S. had an incredible R700,000 winning streak playing the Secret Jungle slot game at South Africa’s Thunderbolt Casino earlier this month.
“I told my wife to pack her bags, we’re going on a nice vacation!” James told the Thunderbolt customer service rep that called to congratulate him on his win.
“I couldn’t believe it at first — I even logged out and back in again just to make sure! I’m a regular at Thunderbolt. I’ve won quite a few times before — but never such a huge amount!”
James and his wife own an event organizing company and both work from their home office. He often plays games on his mobile phone when he steps outside for a break.
James’ run of good luck began when he deposited R190 and used a coupon code to get a 110% bonus it. He won about R242,000 off that deposit. He cashed out a few times but continued to play his balance up more and more using comp points accumulated by the leftover winnings. His balance never dropped below R110,000.00 during this time. By the end of his amazing winning streak he’d won nearly R700,000, most of it playing his favourite slot game, Secret Jungle.
There were several times when James wondered if he should call it a day and cash out, but something told him his winning streak wasn’t over.
“Just when you feel like your luck’s run out,” said James, 42. “Look what happens!”
“James isn’t the first big winner that’s told me they’d almost packed it in just before a winning spin. They’re sure glad they decided to take a few more spins!” said Casino Manager Alisa Van Der Merwe. “I’m really glad it paid off for James this time!”
