    We would like to say congratulations to the big winner! This shows slots tournaments do pay off!!

    Stefan Stankowski from South East London has won the ultimate recession busting prize of one million Euros by winning the final of the biggest ever online slot tournament, The Grand Slam of Slots. Stefan qualified for the tournament back on 18th July by placing the minuscule bet of just two Euros. To top it off, he posted his top score in the final on his birthday putting him in pole position to scoop the mega jackpot!

    Playing at Ladbrokescasino.com, Stefan joined thousands of others who entered qualifying games and competitions between July and October 2009 to win the chance to fill one of the seats at the most hotly anticipated online slot tournaments of all time.

    The final tournament, which took place on the cult favourite Tomb Raider slot game had over 8,000 players. It took a staggering 10 days for the final jackpot bell to start ringing and for Stefan to have his life changed forever!

    Stefan, a photographer for the Harry Potter Films: “I’m ecstatic to have won and can’t quite believe it yet. I’m absolutely stunned! What will I do with the money? Who knows; we’ll have to wait and see! ” When questioned further on whether he plans to quit work on the back of the massive win Stefan goes on to say: “I’m not thinking about leaving work at all, I absolutely love what I do and want to continue it for as long as I can”.

    Whilst discussing his win, Stefan revealed that he was once filming a NFL game in Pasadena America, where he fell in love with the sport. So to help him celebrate the jackpot win, Ladbrokescasino.com will be sending the player off to the NFL Superbowl in February 2010 all expenses paid.

    Charlie Goodenough, Head of Marketing, Ladbrokescasino.com: “This tournament was always going to be exciting with one million Euros up for grabs and it is a great honour to be involved in creating the first online slot tournament millionaire. Ladbrokescasino.com is the home of winners – we’ve already had one winner that walked away with over one million pounds this year and another player who has won £50,000 twice in the last four months!”

    The Grand Slam of Slots tournament had a prize pot of 1.3 million Euros and along with Stefan, 482 other players walked away with winnings.

    The Tomb Raider game is one of Ladbrokescasino.com’s most popular games because it is simple and fun to play. It is part of a portfolio of over 450 thrilling games including numerous variants of roulette, blackjack and Slots.

    To celebrate the Grand Slam of Slots win, Ladbrokescasino.com has also extended their £25 free offer to all new customers until the end of the year.
