Overjoyed man from South East Finland kicks off the weekend by winning 3.4 million euros on Paf.com

The morning of 15 January 2016 is one that a man in his 40s living in South East Finland will never forget. Yet again it was time for the Åland gaming company Paf to hand out a record win – on this occasion just over 3.4 million euros. The man who, and this is no exaggeration, started his Friday morning in the best possible way, won the jackpot on the slot machine Mega Fortune Dreams.

The jackpot of 3,423,172 euros went out on Mega Fortune Dreams on Paf.com at 10 o'clock in morning. The win is the fifth largest ever in Paf's history and the eighth win of over €3 million in the last five years on Paf.com.

The lucky big winner is a loyal customer who has been playing on Paf.com since 2003. The man’s winning stake was just 4 euros and in a phone call with Paf the man says that he felt remarkably calm when he won and that there was no loud shouts of joy.

“Clearly it was exciting, but surprisingly enough I felt nothing except a sense of calm,” said the winner.

The man says that he does not yet have any special plans and he would rather take one day at a time to begin with. The man added that he has not yet told his family about the win.

“I have a wife and kids and they will probably be very surprised when I tell them about the win,” said the winner.

When Paf asked him if this was a good start to the weekend the winner answered with real joy in his voice: “It could not be better!”

Paf, as is the case with all big winners, has been in personal contact with the winner not only to offer congratulations, but also to provide advice and support for the new life situation the winner faces.

“We want the money to bring joy and therefore we recommend that our winners obtain financial advice and that they remain anonymous. We also recommend that all our big winners take a break from gambling. Our goal is that our customers should feel that they are among friends and we try to keep in personal contact with the big winners as long as there is a desire and a need to do so,” says Mattias Lindquist, Communications Manager at Paf.

In addition to this big win, Paf has started the New Year strongly by paying out a range of large jackpots to big winners. On 11 January 2016, a lucky Finnish winner landed 160,500 euros on the exclusive Paf game Cash and Carry and five days previously another Finn won 136,500 euros on Hall of Gods.
