Paf player wins a record bingo jackpot
A woman from the Pori region of Finland has won an exceptionally large bingo jackpot on Paf.com.
The total win of more than 96,000 euros is most likely the first ever in Finland.
Compared to the other online games, the bingo jackpots are rarely very big. However, on Wednesday the 16January, a woman bought a two-euro coupon from a gaming company in Åland and won the biggest bingo jackpot ever given out by Paf.
Paf’s PR manager, Anders Sims says, “As far as we know, no one has ever won this much in bingo in Finland before. It’s extremely rare that a bingo jackpot gets this big. Something like this hasn’t happened very many times before in the world.”
The winner was still ecstatic when Paf called and congratulated her. “I started playing bingo online, but then I stopped because we had guests. When I came back I noticed I had won.”
What did you think at the time?
“What? Is this true? I don’t play that much, so this was a huge surprise.”
What are you going to do with your winnings?
“I haven’t really had time to plan anything, but my house really needs renovating.”
In the past year, Paf has had the honour of giving out many big wins. Last year, Paf’s customers won several big jackpots playing games at Paf.com. For example, one person won 6.9 million euros and another 8.6 million.
At this very moment, Paf.com is offering the world’s second biggest jackpot in its Mega Fortune game. The jackpot has already reached an unbelievable 17 million euros and the amount continues to grow rapidly.
Keeping in contact with the winners
Whenever one of Paf’s customers wins a large sum of money, we do our best to provide the winner with advice in their new situation.
“We want the money to lead to happiness and for this reason we make sure our customers receive financial advice. We advise them to remain anonymous and to take a break from gaming for a while,” says Sims.
He adds, “We want our customers to feel they are among friends, and for this reason we keep in contact with our big winners for as long as they want and need us to.”
