Sharad Deshmukh, an employee of a KFC outlet in Bengaluru by playing live casino blackjack has won ₹ 15,62,52,872 at Leo Vegas Casino.

The claim about Sharad Deshmukh, an employee of KFC winning huge jackpot money is not true, but part of an online scam.

The story of Sharad Deshmukh, an employee of a KFC outlet in Bengaluru winning ₹ 15,62,52,872 at Leo Vegas Casino, has been viral all over social media. There are some mixed responses on social media, some have called it a hoax, others have called it to be a racket of frauds.

Meanwhile, a reverse image search of the story revealed that the photo from the said article was lifted from the Trip Advisor that shows the dumb and deaf workers at the KFC Santhome branch. Moreover, when we clicked through the links mentioned in the stories, we were taken to websites, where we were asked to submit our details and later deposit some money to be able to play any kind of game. Similar stories about Domino’s, KFC, or McDonald's employees winning huge jackpot money in free time and quitting the job are also circulated on social media with different names of the employee.

Therefore, it can be concluded that the story about an employee winning huge jackpot money in free time and quitting a job is a hoax and part of an online scam intended to steal money from unsuspecting users.
