Michael Smith lands casino jackpot hours after being filmed around bikini-clad women
Michael Smith landed a huge casino jackpot just hours after being filmed around bikini-clad women in a Las Vegas pool.
Smith's been living it up in Sin City after becoming world darts champion a few weeks ago. The 32-year-old was spotted lounging in a pool on Monday smoking a cigar as buxom beauties frolicked in the vicinity, in what he called the penultimate life achievement.
Whilst chilling in the jacuzzi, Smith said "World number 1 world champion and now life. Completed it mate."
And Bully Boy continued his winning streak at a casino in the city where he won almost $12,000 (£9650) from a $10 bet which he flipped into $450 (£362) credit. Clearly chuffed with the achievement, Smith mused on social media: "Nice 12k jackpot."
Fans concurred with the darts icon and heralded his victory on Twitter. One fan said: "Vegas is completed now mate." A second user quipped: "Spare a fiver?"
Then a third supporter exclaimed: "Mate you've got too much money!!! Enjoy." Meanwhile, over on Instagram, supporters gave champ a new name based on his winnings. One fan declared: "Michael 'Jackpot' Smith."
Followed by another supporter who anointed him: "Michael 'The Gambling Boy' Smith." But being champion has weighed heavy on Smith's shoulders and he shared the advice darts counterpart Phil Taylor gave him on how to handle the accolade.
He said: "The biggest downfall for me is being World Champion and not enjoying it. I'm putting too much pressure on myself going Mike you're World Number One, you should be playing like a World Number One. Instead of just enjoying it and relaxing. This year you've seen a couple of moments where I've done it and I've relaxed and chilled.
"It's my first time, I spoke to Phil (Taylor) last week at an exhibition and asked how he dealt with it. I said Phil you've won 16, how do you do it.
He just said no. I'm like what do you mean, I'm asking for your advice. He went I'm just telling you learn the word no. The second time I win it will be a lot easier than this one."
