Aberdeenshire fisherman lands £5.4m BetVictor casino jackpot from 20p stake

An Aberdeenshire fisherman landed a £5.4m jackpot after starting with 20p on an online casino - then vowed to keep working as he would miss it too much.

The trawlerman has decided to keep his identity a secret after his win on the BetVictor slot game.

He kept on playing after his 20p stake swelled, before finally netting the jackpot.

The winner said he will give some to charity.

He has not decided what to do with the rest.
