A 40p bet at a Northampton casino has landed one lucky gambler a jackpot of more than £18,000.

Patricia Foale won £18,265.49 on the Fort Knox jackpot at Aspers Casino in Northampton on Monday night.

The win is reported to be the largest in the UK since law changes meant multiple jackpot-linked machines in casinos can offer prizes of up to £20,000.

David Stratford, general manager, said “We are thrilled to see Patricia win the jackpot.

“The new government law allows us to offer gamers the exciting chance to win a higher cash prize and making Aspers the home of the big win.”

The biggest so far was on March 7 when a gambler won £18,096 at Aspers Casino in Stratford, London.
