25P BET NETS pounds 2.6M; Punter scoops a record payout at online casino.

Byline: LAURIE HANNA

A LUCKY online punter yesterday scooped the biggest win in the history of Ladbrokes bookmakers.

The anonymous businessman is pounds 2.6million richer after one 25p spin at the bookies' internet casino.

He hit the jackpot while playing the Mega Moolah slot machine - where the prize fund grows every time a player spins the wheels.

The massive payout left the winner from the Midlands stunned.

And David Williams of Ladbrokes said: "We've never known a luckier punter. It is a truly incredible win.

"He was playing in the early hours when he struck gold."

Last month, the Mirror revealed that a mum fed-up with her fella watching football on TV decided to have a go at an online game - and immediately won pounds 1.3million.

Lisa Potter, 33, from Witney, Oxon, only had a dabble because partner Terry Goodman was ignoring her as he sat glued to Euro 2012. She hit the jackpot thanks to a pounds 5 bet on Ladbrokes Bingo on her laptop.
