Leicester player Jamie Vardy managed the feat of turning 7,000 reais into a jackpot of 220,000 reais in a casino on August 7, according to a report by The Sun. On that day, the Leicester cast was at the Park Lane Casino, in the city of London, to celebrate the victory over Manchester City in the decision of the Super Cup in England.

The bets of the striker and his teammates were supported by Leicester president Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha. According to the newspaper’s report, the president awarded each player with about 7,000 reais after winning the title.

As such, the striker’s luck in the middle of the casino was only part of his beautiful season ending. Before beating the team led by coach Pep Guardiola at Wembley, Leicester had already lifted the FA Cup Cup against defending Champions League champion Chelsea.

The party and gambling moment at the Park Lane Casino ‘sponsored’ by the president of Leicester had a dual role. That’s because, in the month of May, at the time of the FA Cup title, the blockades imposed by the authorities aiming to contain the cases of COVID-19 prevented any kind of celebration on the part of the players.
