Cape Town – Young school teacher, Rob Brits gave his wife, Hannah the best wedding present possible. Not only because the gift was valued at R15 847 920, but because of the great romantic gesture that went with it. Winning a huge sum by cracking Winner Casino‘s jackpot made their lives much easier.
Rob Brit is a young school teacher at a small primary school in the heart of Cape Town. Over the past three years, Rob has accumulated a large amount of debt trying to pay for his Hannah’s medical bills following a serious car accident. Since their medical insurance refused to pay Brit’s medical bills, Rob fell further in debt and had to sell their house to make ends meet.
The good news is that Hannah has made a full recovery and the young couple decided it was time to celebrate their marriage with a small and inexpensive wedding celebration with their families. Sadly, the idea of a honeymoon was completely off the cards. Hannah has always dreamed of going Mauritius for their honeymoon and would talk about it all the time while she was recovering in hospital.
Sitting in the hospital waiting area one night, Rob was updating his Facebook status to let family and friends know how Hannah’s recovery was going. Scrolling through his news feed, Rob came across an advert for Winner Casino. Feeling exhausted and borderline depressed, Rob scrolled past but went back quickly to read the advert again. He had almost no money and it would be foolish to spend any betting online. It was then that he saw the promotion they were offering to win the Mega Moolah jackpot. It was too good a deal to pass up.
What happened next would change the Brits’ lives for the better. After signing up and taking just a single spin on the Casino’s Mega Moolah, Rob had won! Cashing out a grand total of R15,847,920 in a matter of minutes, every single one of Robs financial worries melted away. His winnings were more than 50 times his annual salary, meaning Rob could pay all his debts and take Hannah on the trip she always dreamed about. “I nearly fell to the floor when I saw the winning jackpot payout,” he said. “That kind of money is life-changing for a couple like us. I figured that there was no for me not to try it, and I’m grateful for that decision.”
“I couldn’t believe my eyes,” says Rob. “I thought I was dreaming in that moment that I hit the jackpot. I was so shocked the next day to see the full amount in my cheque account. I really couldn’t believe it. I started paying off the medical bills quietly and adding funds to our wedding savings and secretly bought us a house.”
On our wedding night, having kept in these huge secrets for weeks, Rob knelt down next to Hannah and placed two plane tickets in front of her. When she opened them and saw they were for a trip to Mauritius, Rob whispered in her ear, telling her the whole story of what had happened that night in the hospital waiting area. He then handed Hannah the keys to their new house, still in disbelief.
It was a matter of destiny that Rob would come across the Winner Casino advert that night and try his luck with the bonus they were offering. That single moment turned his life around.
Although he is one of the bigger winners of the jackpot, Rob is not the only one cashing out on Winner’s bonuses. Since they began the promotion, over 250 players throughout the country have won money from playing the games. It seems that the promotion will, however, be coming to a close soon given that the company has paid out winnings of around R300 million to new members since the promotion began.
“Since the promotions began last month, over 240 players in South Africa have won over R12,000,000 from Playing”
Other players in Cape Town have also shared in the winnings, just like Rob. You can’t always win that big, but if you don’t play, you don’t stand a chance.
