Hamed Shahbazy Nikjeh struck lucky at Genting Club Fountainpark when he placed a £1 side bet playing Blackjack Aces. He was dealt four aces to scoop a jackpot of £100,977 in a game which links 35 casinos.
Hamed, a chef who lives in Glasgow, said: “I couldn’t believe it. It’s the biggest win I’ve ever had. I’d gone to the casino to play poker and thought I’d have a go on the Blackjack Aces before the poker competition started.
“To win such a big jackpot was amazing and means I can buy my dream car – an Audi R8 - and also put money towards a mortgage on a house.”
Genting Club Fountainpark deputy manager Tony Oliver said: “There was great excitement on the night. It’s the biggest jackpot we’ve had here on this game and we’re so pleased for Hamed and his good fortune.”
