Lucky Scots trawlerman nets £5.4million online gambling jackpot from a stake of 20p



A SCOTS trawlerman has netted a £5.4million online gambling jackpot from a stake of just 20p.

The mystery dad-of-one, from Aberdeenshire, reeled in the biggest internet casino win ever seen in the UK on BetVictor’s Hall of Gods game.

It took the North Sea cod fisherman half an hour to get the payout on the virtual slot machine on Sunday.
