A LUCKY casino-goer has scooped a record £20,000 slot machine jackpot.

Shirley Stiborski from High Wycombe plans to go on a Caribbean cruise after landing the jackpot on the Fort Knox machine at Genting Casino in Reading.

The £20,000 jackpot is the maximum allowed under UK gaming legislation and it is believed the mother-of-two is the first to claim the top prize.

She said: “I could not believe it, I don’t normally play this but my husband said ‘you have to give it a go because it’s on jackpot level’.

Genting General Manager Jimmy Howard said: “We are thrilled for Shirley.

“This has been resting on the highest level of £20,000 for a few weeks now and so we have been waiting and hoping for it to pay out.

“It is the first time the £20,000 jackpot has been won in a Genting casino in the UK and we’re not aware of any others who have had such a big winner.”
