Just days after Leicester City fans had taken to the streets to celebrate their team’s remarkable Premier League title victory, the club’s owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, celebrated in a very different way. Having seen results go in his side’s favour on Monday, the Thai businessman spent last Wednesday evening relaxing at a casino and left with a rather handsome windfall of £2.5 million under his belt.


According to The Sun, Mr Srivaddhanaprabha, who purchased the Foxes in 2010, won the impressive sum while playing at a card table with a group of friends in the Leicester branch of Genting Casino. His sensational win came just days after the nation witnessed Tottenham Hotspur surrendered a two-goal lead at away to Chelsea, a result that denied the North London club the three points they needed to keep pace with the leaders Leicester at the top of the table. The result handed the Foxes their first top-tier title and, coupled with his seven-figure casino win, no doubt resulted in a week to remember for Thailand’s fourth-richest man.

This win has seemingly come at just the right time, with recent reports suggesting that King Power owner and CEO Mr Srivaddhanaprabha is set to reward each member of his winning side with a Mercedes worth £32,670. The squad are also set to receive a number of bonuses and added cash incentives to reject lucrative moves away from the King Power Stadium and remain with the European-bound Foxes next season.       

Mr Srivaddhanaprabha has proved to be a popular figure in the East Midlands, overseeing the club’s rise from a mid-table Championship side to newly crowned champions of England’s top division. Fans of the Foxes will be even more delighted if this incredible casino win goes some way to keeping hold of the club’s biggest and brightest stars.
