A strange story

A lovesick British man dumped by his girlfriend of four years, was browsing the web when he came across an offer he could not refuse. King Jackpot, a brand new online casino just legalized in Canada, was offering new players £20 free (with no credit card or deposit required) for a chance to win a progressive jackpot of over half a million British dollars (£500,000.00)

Carl Matthews, 29, from London had just lost his job, and had incurred over £9,300 of credit card bills he could not afford to pay back. Just when he thought his situation could not get any worse, his beloved girlfriend, Amy Parkinson, decided to call it quits.

Amy admits, "I was just over his lack of motivation. Carl was the sweetest guy, but was in a never-ending hole. My girlfriends would continuously tell me that I needed someone with drive, who could look after me financially and I just never saw Carl being that person."

Little did Amy know, Carl's life was about to dramatically change. Those £20 free dollars that initially aroused his interest ended up multiplying for him over 10,000 times. After spinning for 14 minutes, Carl won a progressive Jackpot on the King Jackpot game "The Posh Life". Soon, he received a massive sum of £362,259.00 in his bank account.

"I was at an absolute loss of words. I could not believe I had just won all of this money, all from one lucky spin. My life was in the slums and this was just what I needed to get me back on track. God is clearly on my side. I am beyond excited to restart my life with this new found wealth" Matthews reported when describing his reaction to this massive win.

The story was soon after picked up by national paper, the Telegraph. Amy, who receives this paper daily immediately saw her ex-boyfriend on the cover. Her feelings towards Carl quickly changed. "She started calling, texting, emailing, saying she wanted to give it another go. Saying she wanted to make it work. That she loved me, she missed me, she couldn't imagine life without me," Carl reported.

Carl currently remains single. Amy remains persistent in giving their relationship another go.

God just made a joke on them, nobody was wrong, it is fairly easy to undstand the fact Amy left Carl who can't make her feel safty . Carl just is the lucky person ,that's all, if he can accept Amy again , The only thing Amy should do is face the reality and move on.

That's a real danger for him, and if he takes Amy back, that will be his most dangerous gamble, she will help him spend his money and probably leave him.
She states that he is a really nice guy, but does not have enough ambition, it seems to be why she left him, she expects a man to support her financially, and in my opinion, if a woman brings nothing but sex to a relationship, then she is little better than a prostitute, thankfully, most women are not like this.
I hope he uses the money wisely and has a good life, gaining money like that is a lucky boost of opportunity.

I know two men who's wives left them after a career change they didn't approve of. Both men were worth over 20 Million USD when I met them a few years latter. Those women regretted that decision.
