Jackpot at a casino is a dream come true for any gambler. And that was a dream come true for an average cab driver, who won almost £90,000 in Blackjack.

On a quiet night, when there weren't any customers to drive, Goksel Selay, 53, decided to try his luck at the Genting Club Westcliff in Southend. He didn't expect anything special to happen, but he could not believe his eyes, when he was dealt four aces and won the blackjack aces jackpot of £89,950.

He said: “I could not believe it, it’s the first time in my life I have had such a big win. I don’t usually play blackjack as I prefer roulette but I wasn’t having much luck there so I decided to play blackjack instead as I saw the jackpot was rising.

“I had had a dream a few days earlier about winning big money and told my wife about it. We are not lucky normally. That night when I went to work it was very quiet so I thought I would try my luck because I had the dream, and it came true.”

The father-of-two already has a plan for his winnings. He is going to buy a car for his wife, invest into a family house and put a solid amount aside for the future of his teenage children.

Genting Club Westcliff’s general manager, Simon Woodford, said: “There was great excitement when the jackpot was won. It’s the biggest we have had here on this game. We’re all so pleased for Goksel who we have got to know over the years.”
