(Chicago, IL), September 15, 2005 – Sportsbook.com awarded the largest jackpot in its history this month with a cheque for $540,656. Steve A., a retired family man from Illinois, won the jackpot with a $1 progressive wager on Free Ride, a 5-card Caribbean Poker game.
“When I saw the Queen of Clubs come up, I was in total disbelief,” says Steve. “I called my wife in to look at the screen and together we determined we were half a million dollars richer.”
The self-proclaimed “moderate” player joined Sportsbook.com two years ago and wagers primarily on the NFL and casino games.
“My experience with Sportsbook.com has been amazing,” says Steve. “The customer service is great, the payouts are quick and the games are always fair. They are truly a professional organization.”
