Highly-paid NRL star Corey Norman has won $25,000 on the pokies during a night out with mates, sending the group of football players into a frenzy.
The St George Illawarra Dragons player snatched the jackpot while hitting the town with fellow sporting legends Matthew Moylan, Nathan Peats, and Bryce Cartwright on Friday night.

The 29-year-old plays as a five-eight for the NSW-based team, after joining them ahead of the 2019 season.
He is contracted to play with St George until the end of 2021.
Norman debuted with the Brisbane Broncos in 2010 before signing with the Parramatta Eels three years later.
During his decade-long career, he has been embroiled in a string of scandals.
In July 2016, he was fined $800 after pleading guilty to drug possession after he was caught with MDMA and muscle relaxants at The Star casino.
The same month two sex tapes he had sent to friends were reportedly shopped to media outlets in an extortion attempt.
