A player at Grosvenor G Casino in Stockton is celebrating after winning a slots jackpot worth £10,897. The lucky winner, who has been named as Thanh Ha, won the prize on a Category B1 machine, which has a maximum stake of £5 and an advertised jackpot of £10,000 or a linked jackpot of up to £20,000. Category B1 slots used to have a maximum stake of £2 and offer maximum jackpots of £4,000, so a revision of the rules at the beginning of 2014 has certainly been good news for winning players.


Thanh Ha, who said that he will use some of the cash to visit the USA for a holiday, is obviously delighted with his win, but it was also welcomed by management at the casino itself. It might sound a little far-fetched for a casino to be happy about paying out a five-figure sum to any individual, but it is a fantastic way for a venue to make headlines and attract even more players in the future.

In this age of online casino gaming, it can be very easy to fall into the trap of thinking that big wins are only landed at digital venues, but that isn’t the case at all. Traditional casino venues across the country are paying out fortunes every week, and the majority of the cash that is staked on slots games is paid back to those who win. That means a night out at a local casino could also turn out to be a night out which boosts your bank account quite significantly.

Another benefit of playing at traditional casinos is that it gives a player a much richer experience than participating online. Standing on the plush carpet, or sitting on a stool, with the sound of machines punctuating an atmosphere of excitement and anticipation, and physically inserting cash into a slot before pushing the button to spin the reels and hearing celebratory alarm bells that indicate a big win is a multi-sensory experience that is hard to replicate online. 

Players today are in the fortunate position of being able to enjoy the best of both worlds. They can play online when they want to enjoy the excitement and big-win potential of casino gaming without leaving the comfort of their own homes, and they can also treat themselves to a night out at their local bricks-and-mortar establishment to enjoy the traditional casino gaming experience. 

We congratulate Thanh Ha on his recent win at the Grosvenor G Casino in Stockton, and we hope that it will inspire others to have a go at repeating his success.
