A man's lucky day at a New York state casino went up in smoke - along with his winnings.
Kenneth Lamoree said he returned to his home after winning more than £2,000 at the Turning Stone casino in Verona, but a little more than an hour later, a fire broke out in the home he shares with his fiancee and their three children.
The house suffered extensive damage and its contents - including Mr Lamoree's wallet with his casino winnings - were believed to have been destroyed.
