A high roller on a lucky streak has won $50,000 on a digital slot machine at a Web casino. Details about the cybergambler are being kept secret and all that's known is that he (or she) won the jackpot over the New Year. The owner of the GalaxiWorld casino (www.galaxiworld.com) -- based in the West Indies -- admitted that he's made some pretty hefty payouts during his first month of business, but said that this was by the largest. "I know this may sound ridiculous, but we couldn't be happier with this payout!'' exclaimed casino boss Larry Weltman through gritted teeth. ®
