Bowman had Apple’s latest hotly-anticipated release delivered by motorbike courier this morning after Leo Vegas secured the first spot in the bustling queue for the coveted new smartphone outside the Apple Store on Regent Street. The phone was officially purchased at 8.03am and was with Bowman at 8.21am. The antiques dealer was pulled at random from all the UK players that had played at LeoVegas in the last week.
She said: “I was aware of the competition but didn’t give myself any chance of winning. It was such a surprise to have a knock on my door that early and then to see what had been delivered ─ I couldn’t believe it. I’m thrilled and I think it’s the first time I’ve ever won something!”
Shenaly Amin, UK Manager for LeoVegas, said: “The release of the new Apple iPhone is always one of the most eagerly awaited events in the tech industry, and we wanted to reward one of our customers with the latest model. As a predominantly mobile casino, we want out players to enjoy the best possible gaming experience. We wish Alex all the best as she tries out our extensive range of games on her new toy.”
Promotional staff from Europe’s biggest mobile casino were also on hand this morning to give out free coffee to everyone in the queue, keeping them warm as the excitement grew ahead of the famous doors opening.
