You’re never too old to have fun, and what a great way to up your retirement savings. A retired 69 year old carpenter from Norway won a massive €4 million ($5,544,396) at CasinoEuro last Monday, after betting just €30.
“I was informed of the win a few minutes after the jackpot dropped. It is with great joy that I congratulate the winner and I hope that this large jackpot gives him the freedom to realize his dreams”, says Kevin Saliba, Business Area Director of CasinoEuro.
The man from the Hamar area has worked as a carpenter his whole life and is now retired. He won playing the life changing amount playing Mega Fortune, where the minimum bet is just €0.01. The jackpot had been building up for quite some time.
“I just wanted to play some low stakes but decided to put €30 on Mega Fortune and did nothing, as everything happened automatically using the auto play feature. Finally the reels stopped and I had won €4 million. I couldn’t believe it and when it finally sunk in that I had won, I had to shout for my wife, as I was about to faint”, says the retired 69 year old man.
This jackpot is one of many that Betsson (operator of CasinoEuro, and itself one of the market’s best gambling operators) has paid out to its customers during the last couple of years. It shows that online casinos, like CasinoEuro, can make dreams come true. We are very happy for our Norwegian winner, and send him our warmest congratulations, says Magnus Silfverberg, CEO for Betsson Malta.
Betsson and CasinoEuro have experienced an increasing interest from older players wanting to play online casino games. Elder people are now feeling a lot more comfortable when it comes to playing online, and the number of registered customers in this group has increased.
“It is unbelievable fun to pay out such large wins and even more pleasing and fun when it is a retired man who has won. So we sincerely hope that the money makes the retired carpenter and his wife enjoy their retirement even more”, says Kevin Saliba.
