It's rare that we get to hear from the same winner twice in 6 months but lucky Satoshi does it again and he's got some stellar advice for all of us.
Last October Vera & John were happy to give Satoshi a call after he won an epic £31,571 win on the Elk Studios slot Hidden.
What no one was expecting was that 6 months later they would be speaking to him again, this time having won a massive £155,553 on the classic Red Tiger game Emerald Diamond.
So what’s his trick? Does he have any advice or is it all luck? We look at his story and find out from the man himself.
Generally, after most big wins, the gambler in question will say that they have a new favourite slot and that’s the one they’ll be playing on forever.

Not Satoshi. He’d moved on from the Elk Studios game that got him his first large win at this mobile casino gambling site and was trying a new game.
The game in question isn’t an obvious choice either.
Hidden is a 178 ways to win slot machine with 5 reels and multiple bonus games. The Emerald Diamond slot, on the other hand, has 3 reels, 1 payline and one wild with a single re-spin.
You couldn’t get two more different casino mobile games if you tried.
This isn’t bad advice. It’s why we have a whole section devoted to new mobile video slots, knowing that some (in fact most) will be fun enough to play – some more than others, obviously.
“I play the all new games with real money for a bit,” he told VJ. “I take my time checking them out to see how they work before I decide if it’s a game that might lead me to a big win.”
Basically, he doesn’t care about themes, paylines, or favourite features. Any slot may be worth playing if, at the end of it, there’s a good chance at a big win.
The Emerald Diamond game is not complicated to figure out. You have three reels with bars and 7 symbols clunking down on each spin with a satisfying old fashioned thud.
You even have the sound of bustling conversations in the background to give that brick and mortar casino feel.
But there’s no denying that this won’t be for everyone. It’s old-fashioned and simple. There are only two features, the blue diamond wild that gives you a re-spin of the other reels.
And then there’s the Emerald Diamond which has a 2x multiplier and when 3 symbols land in a row, give you 1,000 times your bet.
Guess what happened to our friend Satoshi? Yeap – he landed those green diamonds and cashed out plenty of greens in return.
When asked how he felt about his huge win, the master of understatement simply said: “I’m just genuinely happy”.
He doesn’t know how he’ll spend his money just yet.
Our big casino slot winner is far too cool to jump to any rash decisions, instead preferring to wait till the win has washed over him before deciding how he’ll spend his new fortune.
£155,553 might not be enough to let him quit his job (if he even wanted to), but it certainly means he may be able to pay off a big chunk of the mortgage or even go around the world a couple of times.
Now, he’s not saying that you should bet more than you usually would or that you sometimes have to bet big when you usually bet small.

Instead, his advice is far more sensible. If you get a winning streak, use that money to bet big, cause it’s not really yours till you cash out.
“I always play with this idea in my head—that if I make a steady effort, I’ll get a winning streak one day. But I always make bets within my means, at least until I start to get lucky. When that happens, I gradually increase the amount, and if that luck continues, you might get a big win.”
It’s not bad advice. After all, the money you deposit at Vera and John casino is the money you want to come home with, at minimum. Anything extra is just theoretical money till you cash out.
Why not use it to see if the slot machine gives you a bigger win?
We’d add our own little piece of advice to Satoshi. Whilst it’s no bad thing to try and push your luck when you are lucky, there’s also no point wasting a big win.
The best thing you can do is set yourself an amount that you want to win before you begin spinning. So either 50% on top of your deposit, double your money, or 500%.
Whatever the amount, once you’ve reached it, cash out. Only you can decide what it means to be a winner, and it doesn’t have to be £155,553 in order to be significant to you.
After all, one spin is all it takes to win at the many slot machines at Vera and John. And they’ve got plenty of choices, from the big names like NetEnt, Microgaming and IGT, to the up and coming software providers like Yggdrasil, Iron Dog, and Thunderkick.
