U.K woman hits record Deal or No Deal jackpot

17 December 2007

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Jackpotjoy news we've all been waiting for: Deal or No Deal's record Jackpot has just been won at a staggering £965,728, over £330,000 more than the game's previous record!

Our luckiest ever winner is 27-year-old Emira B from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire.

"Thank you so much. I'm in shock. It's unbelievable. I've just told my family. They sort of believe me! They didn't even know that I played. I told them to look and that I'd won the Jackpot. It's not sunk in yet. Oh my God."

Emira fled to the UK from Bosnia in 1992. She came with her baby brother and very little spoken English. Over time she has improved her language skills although life has been hard. Not long after she settled in the UK, her young brother passed away in a car accident.

After the win, we asked Emira what she had planned for the enormous sum of cash. It took her a few moments to collect her thoughts, but the ideas soon flooded in.

"Me and my family will be sorted! I've got work tomorrow but don't know if I'll go. I work as a therapist in a Beauty Salon. Perhaps I'll buy one and be my own boss!"

Emira joins a long list of huge jackpot winners whose lives have changed after enjoying the many games at This summer David E won an incredible £629,547 and hundreds more have won big cash prizes on slot games and bingo.
