Woman wins €3 million in the middle of the night
Åland-based gaming company Paf has paid out another record win, this time to a woman aged around sixty from Helsinki in Finland. She hit the jackpot in the Mega Fortune Dreams slot machine at Paf.com during Friday night, earning over €3 million.
The jackpot in Mega Fortune Dreams, worth 3,020,481 euros, was triggered at Paf.com at 2.30 early Saturday morning. This is the seventh largest win in Paf’s history.
“This is the happiest day of my life. I haven’t been able to sleep, and my husband and I can’t believe that this is really happening. I only really grasped that I had won when Paf contacted me by phone on Saturday morning”, says the lady, overjoyed and overwhelmed.
The lucky winner has been a Paf customer since early June. Her bet for the winning line was €0.40.
“There are so many things I can now afford to buy and do. First, I am going to the bank to deposit and invest some of the money”, she says.
As is customary with all large wins, Paf has been in contact with the winner to congratulate her and to offer advice and support in the novel situation she is facing.
“We want our winners to enjoy their money, so we encourage them to obtain financial advice and to remain anonymous. We also recommend that they take a break from playing. Our aim is for every customer to feel that they are among friends. To achieve this, we try to keep in personal contact with the winners of large sums, for as long as they want and need us to”, says Mattias Lindquist, Communications Manager at Paf.
Paf has held the world record in online slot machine winnings since 20 January 2013, when one of its customers won €17.8 million in Mega Fortune. The Guinness World Records has confirmed the record win.
