Canadian girl abruptly dumps boyfriend, then begs him back after he wins $362,259 from online game...
A lovesick Canadian man dumped by his girlfriend of four years, was browsing the web when he came across an offer he could not refuse.
Bingo Liner, a brand new online casino just legalized in Canada, was offering new players $30 free (with no credit card or deposit required) for a chance to win a progressive jackpot of over half a million Canadian dollars ($500,000.00)
Carl Matthews, 29, from Toronto, Canada 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, Carls life was about to dramatically change. Those $30 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 theBingo Liner 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 local newspaper, The Toronto Star. 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.
