New record – 6.9 million euros won on slot machine
A Finnish player has won 6.9 million euros on a slot machine on Paf.com. It is the largest win ever on an online game in Finland. And the second largest in the world.
The Paf customer, who is in his thirties and lives in Helsinki, bet 2 euros on the slot Mega Fortune and won an unbelievable 6.9 million euros.
This is what the winner had to say to Paf less than 24 hours after the prize was won on the morning of 18 January: “I thought it was a dream. It was early in the morning when I won and I was in shock and couldn’t sleep. After a long while I fell asleep and then when I woke up I checked my gaming account straight away to see if the money was still there.”
“The whole thing is unreal. I still haven’t understood it.”
What are you going to do with the money?
“I haven’t been able to think about that yet.”
Paf’s customers have been spoiled by big wins recently. Less than a year ago a Swede won 5.3 million euros, which was the biggest online win ever in Sweden.
Paf’s Head of Press and PR, Anders Sims, says: “These wins are obviously really great for Paf too. They show that it is possible to have really big wins with us. That you really can realise your dreams and win a fantastic jackpot.”
This win means that Paf is now responsible for the two largest wins in the Nordic region in less than a year. But that doesn’t mean that this is the end of the big wins. The slot Arabian Nights, for example, has a jackpot of over 6 million euros that is still waiting for a winner.
When a customer wins a lot of money on Paf.com the gaming company gets in touch with them right away with help and advice.
“It is important that we as a gaming company take our responsibility and don’t leave the winner without any support. We make sure that the customer receives financial advice from a bank, and our advice is always that the customer keeps their identity a secret,” says Anders Sims.
