Online casino King Billy is no stranger to big wins, with these two whoppers among its roll of honour:

  • $204,399 on NetEnt’s Dead or Alive II, won on a single spin by a German player 
  • €313,542 on Evolution Games’ Live Roulette won by a Danish player on his 20th day at King Billy

Commenting on the latest win, footage of which is available here, King Billy Casino CEO, Volodymyr Harkusha, said: “King Billy is a multiple times awarded casino. But, frankly speaking, awards count mostly for us. Winning is what counts for the players! And in this light, wins are an essential part of the King Billy package, which also includes irresistible offers and features, top-notch customer support and the widest variety of games and providers. Congratulations to our player and, of course, to Hacksaw Gaming for their fantastic slot!”

Margarita Dellaca, key account manager at Hacksaw Gaming, said: “At Hacksaw Gaming we pride ourselves on creating high quality, diverse and mobile-first games. Our games keep players on the edge of their seats and this amazing win proves that the house does not always win. Wishing the lucky player big congratulations and what an epic and intriguing round that was!”

King Billy caught up with the lucky winner, Sami B from the Nordics, who shared a few words.

Congratulations on your win! How do you feel? I can’t really explain how I really feel, it’s hard. To be honest when I saw that I had won €88,000 from a €10 bet, I just stared at my screen for five minutes. It took some time to sink in, and after a week or two it feels more than amazing.

Have you ever won this much with such a small bet in the past? I haven’t won this much before. Maybe €2,000 or €5,000, so €88,000 is on another level!

Do you prefer to play Hacksaw Games or it did it happen by accident? It was almost by accident. By that I mean that I was hovering my mouse over the game and then was looking at a casino stream and the guy won, like, €6,000 on a €30 bet so I wanted to give it a try. And guess what, it worked out more than I could ever imagine!

What are you going to do with the winnings? Have you decided? I've taken two weeks off work in January so I will travel. Then I might play some more and get a hair transplant! Of course, of course, I will save money as well.

Give us a few words for King Billy. Honestly, they offer amazing support that answers all the questions that I have. Support is more important than anything. For everyone reading this, I hope you all have an amazing time trying your luck because sometimes it just happens and when you get a hit with that luck you need great support. Thanks King Billy for being so amazing!
