One lucky customer at Grosvenor Casino Riverboat in Glasgow has walked away with a whopping prize.

A 49-year-old man from the Southside has won the jackpot playing the casino’s new Grosvenor Ace King Suited side bet on the tables, winning a massive £73,887.27.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “I was literally speechless! I had only come in to use the bathroom and decided to try my luck at a game of blackjack.

“It’s safe to say I’m glad I did! I was totally in shock and had to sit down.”

The lucky customer, who is a business owner, is planning to use his earnings to start a new venture and has already bought his dream car, which is something he has always wanted.

Peter Donnelly, General Manager at Grosvenor Casino Riverboat comments: “We‘re thrilled to have such a huge jackpot win with our new Grosvenor Ace King Suited progressive side bet. It’s created a really exciting atmosphere in the casino and we hope we can get many more players from Glasgow walking away with the jackpot!”.
