Christmas has come early for a mobile gamer who has won the top £25,000 prize on ‘Pan for Gold’.
The £2 instant win scratch card game was only released on Sky Vegas at the end of November, but Dave, from Durham, England, has already beaten the odds to take the jackpot.
Incredibly, Dave took the prize on just his 10th attempt at the CORE Gaming-created title, which is set in the Wild West town of Goldville.
Players have two ways of winning the £25,000, either through collecting gems or golden nuggets from the Goldrush river in their pan.
They sink their pan three times and win by collecting three of the same jewel – from £2 for turquoise gems to the top prize for pearls.
Golden nuggets are stocked in the bonus bank and can be kept safe for subsequent scratch cards – giving players more chance to win. Once eight have been collected, the nuggets are weighed and could be worth up to £25,000.
A CORE Gaming (www.core-gaming.info) spokesman said: “We are delighted that Dave has taken this golden prize, especially just a few weeks before Christmas. It shows that dreams really can come true and we wish him all the best.”
