A Dutch weather girl won almost one million dollars just hours into her shift! Ashley Meyer, of Tilburg, had been with RTL News for over ten years and yet her salary remained the same as when she started (€22,781/year). Little did she know that begging for a raise was not necessary.
“I’d only been at work for a few hours,” says Ashley. “I was midway through forecasting the rain in Tilburg, when I took a coffee break. It was then that I won the money.
During her break, Ashley spotted an advertisement on Facebook. It was for a new online casino, MagicRed, that was proving a hit in the United Kingdom. “It said that everyone who registered got 80 free spins. All you needed to do was give an email. They didn’t want a deposit or anything. So I signed up there and then.”
”At first I didn’t win anything so I decided to try my luck and deposit €10.”
And bam just a few minutes later, Ashley struck the jackpot, winning an incredible $892,392.
“I couldn’t believe it,” she says. “I was worried that it was a scam, so made sure to cash out right away. But when the money hit my instantly, I knew it was true.”
”I waited to confirm with my bank to make sure the money was real before quitting haha. Luckily they confirmed that indeed the €892,392 was all mine.“
When asked about what she would do with the money, Ashley mentioned that she plans to travel the world. “Too many people in this world spend a majority of their life working and I do not want to be apart of this rat race. I want to enjoy the little time I have in this world!”
Gambling industry expert Alan Silver shares his thoughts on this sensation, “What you often see in new online casinos is that they run a huge loss in the beginning because they have a lot of money off roads to come in the hope of new customers. That makes this the perfect time to score well with MagicRed. Once a customer base is established winning becomes much harder therefore it is very important to capitalize on new casino games and capture all the winnings you can. ”
ATV journalist Marieke Kessel tried it herself. She won €1290 after 7 minutes. “Unfortunately, it’s not as much as Ashley but I’m not complaining.”
