A Norwegian student won the biggest online casino progressive video slot jackpot of all time at $15.9 million and plans to party till he pukes.
An anonymous player who has only been identified as a 22 year old student from the town of Hordaland, Norway hit the biggest online progressive jackpot of all time, scoring a cool €11.7 million ($15,900,000).
The lucky winner received 10 free spins for signing up in a standard casino promotion called ‘no-deposit-bonus’, which means that he received casino credits without the need to deposit a single penny.
Upon returning home from the screening of a hit Norwegian movie – ‘Why Snow is Awesome’, the student decided to get his online gambling on by using his free credits.
According to casino gambling news, after spending the credits, he was up €8, and decided to try his luck at the Slot Machine Mega Fortune.
He was playing at €0.50 a spin, and on his 11th spin he hit the €11,700,000 jackpot.
“It was a shocking experience when the €11.7 million dropped before my eyes. I couldn’t believe it. This is unbelievable; I didn’t believe it and had to call my brother and a few friends.”
“It hasn´t really sunk in yet. I couldn´t sleep until 06:00am due to the shock! I woke up at 07.00 again. It was just impossible to sleep, and I am shaking and sweating.
I haven´t thought about what to do with the winnings. I need to try and calm down before even thinking of what I do with the money!”
After getting his wits together, the casino winner decided to allow the online casino to manage his money, which shows that you don’t have to be a genius to win online.
