Casino Player Hit Double Jackpot
Everyone loves the idea of winning a huge payout playing online slots. After all, that's the point of casino games. We all dream of placing a modest bet that wins us millions — or at least a few hundred. And even though we all know the odds are against us, we keep playing, because every once in a while we hear a story that gives us hope. This is one of those stories.
Earlier this month, news broke that a Swedish player won the biggest Mega Fortune jackpot since 2016 — followed almost immediately by a sizable bonus from NetEnt's Mega Millions campaign. The €650,000 Mega Millions win alone would have been enough to make our hearts flutter with jealousy and hope, but that wasn't even the player's biggest win of the day. In fact, €650,000 is pocket change compared to the €5,984,456 jackpot he landed while playing Mega Fortune.
Perhaps the most incredible part of the story is how quickly he made his millions. The man set up an account with LetsBet Casino while on vacation and, three hours later, he was the proud winner of the coveted Mega Fortune jackpot, plus a Mega Millions win. LetsBet CEO and co-founder Michael Pederson called it a “life-changing experience”, and added, “I can't even begin to imagine what it feels like seeing a 6 Million Euro jackpot suddenly hit your account balance and, at the same time, also win the Mega Millions bonus of an extra 650,000 Euros.”
If you're wondering how the man managed to get so lucky, he's just as stumped as you. In his words, he “was on vacation and just felt like playing a bit.” How does he plan to spend his €6.7 million winnings? When asked, he answered, “I am not sure yet what I will use the winnings for, apart from sharing it with my closest ones and perhaps some more vacation.”
