Vardy party! Jamie wins 7 punters share of £500,000 Hotshot Jackpot

The Foxes striker will be more popular than Santa Claus in our winners homes this Christmas…


Seven Paddy Power customers have got one of the best Christmas presents ever tonight from Jamie Vardy of all people.

Having correctly selected five of the six first goalscorers required to win our £500,000 Hotshot Jackpot, our super seven needed the England frontman to strike first in tonight’s late kick-off as Leicester City hosted Manchester United – and good jolly, he didn’t let them down.

They were among 40 Hotshot Jackpot players waiting on one of eight different players from either side to score first in the game, but it was Vardy who did the business latching onto a pass from Riyad Mahrez to slot past David De Gea just before the half hour mark.

That outstanding opener must have sent our seven winners – who are all based in the UK – wild as it means they will all get a whopping £71,428 each.

What a result with Christmas literally just around the corner!

To win the loot our winners correctly called six first goalscorers in this round of Premier League fixtures in our free to enter Hotshot Jackpot game. They were as follows: Charlie Austin, Luka Milivojevic, Marko Arnautovic, Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and of course, Jamie Vardy.

It’s simple to take part and you can find out all about it here. The next round opens on December 27th at 1pm if you want to take part by the way!

One things for sure though, if any one of our winners ever meets Vardy they sure do owe him as many blue WKD’s as he can handle!
