A Finnish man in his early forties has won the world's biggest online slot jackpot. The man logged into Paf.com and played for 25 cents on the slots game Mega Fortune, and suddenly landed the main jackpot. It was a staggering 17.8 million euros.
This is what the winner said when Paf interviewed him the day after his jackpot win:
How did you react when you realized you had won this amazing jackpot?
“It was completely unreal, I laughed and cried all at once. Can this really be happening? I wondered. But everything was so out of this world that I can hardly recall any of it. Then I called my girlfriend and told her that a huge win had just come in. She calmed me down and told me to keep both feet on the ground and just sit tight.”
How does it feel now, one day later?
“It's all still very unreal.”
Have you grasped how much money 18 million euros is?
“It is so much money that it is honestly quite hard to grasp.”
Do you know what you will do with the money yet?
“My first thought was that now I can help my relatives, make their lives easier. Then I might start looking around for a nicer car.”
What kind of experiences have you had with Paf as a gaming company?
“I have been a customer at Paf for two to three years and mostly play with small stakes. I like the games and the payback rate is good.”
Any favourite games?
“I'm really a poker player, but Mega Fortune is now my new favourite at Paf!”
What do you do in your spare time?
“I am going to hire a personal trainer and hopefully get in shape.”
