    I was trying to figure out if this progressive was actually positive before it hit. I would say there was a decent chance. I read other threads about it when it got over 10 million. Sounded like people were just throwing money at the game.

    Actually it's not Euros, it's British Pounds. So 13.2m pounds are around 20.2m USD.

    And he only bet 25p. Wow. Wonder what odds he had to fade on that. It might literally have been one in a billion!

    At least it sounds like he plans to put the money to good use.

    getting taxed on gambling winnings is something I will never get my head around, just seems so ridiculous

    Brits pay tax on the stake rather than winnings so I'm very glad I'm a Brit when I've won jackpots in Vegas and we have the current agreement of no tax there on winnings. Yay.

    Yeah, us from other countries are less fortunate, this is the big reason why I rarely play slots in Vegas.......even when I do I tend to stick with smaller denominations or bets so I don't have to deal with withholding tax, unless I hit a very big one......
