A Kesgrave man plans to buy his dream house and to holiday in Dubai after winning £885,000 from a 60p bet in an online casino.

The man, who has not been named, had to check how much he had won several times before he believed it.

He said: "It’s a completely amazing experience and for a long time I had no idea exactly how much I’d won. I couldn’t believe my eyes until I looked closely at the balance and saw £885,000 — from a spin of just 60p. 

“I’ve enjoyed a bet my entire adult life but never come close to winning as much as this before. I took my girlfriend out for dinner to celebrate, then we’ll start looking for our dream house.”
