November 22, 2013 | by | 0 Comments

A stable girl has quit her job after she won a staggering £240,000 — from a 20p bet online.

Olesia Kuzmychova, 29, was wasting time when she placed the little bet on an internet slot game.

And her luck paid off as she scooped a £238,165 jackpot – an extraordinary 1.2 MILLION times more than her outlay.

She said: “I came back from work at the stables around midday and was feeling bored.

“I’d had a hard day and decided to have one 20 pence bet on the game – I never expected to win anything big.

“The next thing I know I hit the jackpot. I was shouting and jumping and screaming like crazy. This has completely changed my life.

“I wake up in the morning and think it is a dream – then realise it is reality.”

Olesia, of Newmarket, Suffolk, won the progressive jackpot on William Hill’s Leprechaun’s Luck game.

She has now quit her £290-a-week job as a stable girl and plans to visit family in Ukraine before marrying ex-jockey boyfriend William Rovetti, 32.

She added: “The first thing I am going to do is go back to Kiev to see my dear mum. It will be wonderful to spend Christmas with her – it will be the best Christmas ever.

“My mum was crying today, she was so happy for me.

“Then I want to go somewhere hot with a nice beach. I have dreamed of going on holiday somewhere hot so that will be next on my list.

“William and I love each other and we were planning a small wedding ceremony as we had so little money.”

William Hill spokesman Jem Maidment said: “We are absolutely thrilled for Olesia. It is a life changing win and all for the princely sum of 20 pence.”
