Finnish Casino Player Won €3.3 Million Jackpot

One lucky Finnish casino player won a life changing jackpot while he was playing in Casumo Casino yesterday. The 50 year old Finnish player was listening to Dire Straits in his headphones while playing “Arabian Nights”, which is a jackpot game offered by Netent.

After a few spins only, the lucky player hit the jackpot and saw a massive €3.3 million being credited directly to his player account. When asked what he wanted to spend the jackpot prize money on, the Finnish player told the press that he would like to take some time and clear his head before making any decisions.  He did however say that he would spend a portion of it on renovating his house as well as travelling around the world.

Casumo is also happy on behalf of their Finnish winner, with Country Manager for Finland, Hanne Aimonen, making the following comment:  “It is a wonderful feeling to call a player and tell him he has become a multimillionaire. Winning a jackpot this big really changes one’s life.”

The jackpot was far from the biggest that has been won on Netent games, but it is still more than enough to change a casino players life. The highest jackpot prize to date that has been paid out is €17.9 million, which was won on Mega Fortune Slot in January of 2013.
