“I play the BIG CA$H games online because I like the chance to win the progressive prize,” said the 62-year-old player. “When I won earlier this year it was a huge surprise but it was an even bigger surprise that I won a second time!
“I never expected to win and winning twice has been such a blessing. Being able to invest this money for my retirement means I can retire sooner than I was planning to and spend time with my family.”
