WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO BECOME AN INSTANT MULTI-MILLIONAIRE?
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO BECOME AN INSTANT MULTI-MILLIONAIRE? Online gambler won 11 million times original bet! What does it feel like to wager 50 cents and reap a reward of five and a half million dollars? The question was answered this week in a follow-up story to the gigantic win of a Finnish player at the Blackjack Ballroom.com online casino site earlier this year (see previous InfoPowa report). Online gambler Klaus E. from Finland made that 50 cent bet, and one click and 3 seconds later, the reels aligned, the screen lit up, the bells rang out… and Klaus E was $5.5 million richer! In an interview with Casino Rewards, the group behind BlackjackBallroom.com, Klaus revealed his reactions and emotions when the big hit took place. "When I saw 5 556 753 flash on my computer screen I thought it was a US phone number," the super-lucky Finn recalled this week. "It couldn't be a jackpot, I must be mistaken! So I just got up from my table, went outside to clear my head, and then came back in again for another look… and noticed $5.5 million sitting in my casino account!" Klaus soon realised it was no mistake, and certainly no telephone number – he had just made online gambling history as the winner of one of the biggest jackpot payouts ever! "I got a phone call from Casino Rewards support who were very reassuring and helpful, and the next thing I knew I was on a plane to Australia to pick up my winning check!" he continues. "In Sydney, the Casino Rewards team took me to the wildlife park, the aquarium and a restaurant by the Opera House. The highlight of my trip? Apart from collecting my enormous check, it was having my photo taken with a koala bear!" Whilst most jackpot winners choose to splash out on flashy sports cars, mansions and expensive designer labels, sensible Klaus has chosen a wiser option for his cash: "I don't want any sports cars, as I don't even have a driving license, but maybe I'll invest. Oh, and some holidays too!"
