Lady luck shines on Leeds casino punter

Have your say

One lucky punter at a Leeds casino is celebrating after walking away with more than £14,000 in prize money.

The 38-year-old construction worker won the jackpot playing Grosvenor Casino’s new Grosvenor Ace King Suited side bet on the tables, winning a massive £14.655.01

John Fordham, general manager at Grosvenor Casino on Leeds Westgate said: “It’s always nice to have a big win in the casino as it creates a really exciting atmosphere and we hope we can get many more players from Leeds walking away the jackpot!”

Priced at £1 per bet, per round, adding a Grosvenor Ace King Suited progressive side bet to a game gives customers the chance to win one of three progressive jackpots; Minor, Major and Mega, with the Mega jackpot paying out a guaranteed minimum of £10,000 if the customer and the dealer draw a Blackjack match by both holding the Ace and King of the same suit.
