Dutch woman wins 4.3 million euros on a Unibet slotmachine.
June 22, 2009
Disbelief, astonishment and deep joy. That is what a Dutch woman felt last Sunday after she won 4.3 million euros playing Unibet’s Mega Fortune. The lucky lady from Utrecht pocketed the biggest-ever online jackpot paid out by European bookmaker Unibet.
It is not the first time the company has made one of their customers a millionaire. Her haul eclipses the 1.1 million euros won by Nils, a 43-year-old Norwegian, on Unibet’s Arabian Nights slot in January this year.
M., a 33-year-old from Utrecht and a regular player with Unibet, couldn’t believe her luck when the ‘Jackpot!’ message appeared on the screen: “I kept staring at my screen. I thought it was a joke. I then called the Unibet helpdesk and they confirmed that I had won the Mega Fortune jackpot!”
“People ask me what I am going to do with the money, but I’m not sure yet… It’s definitely enough money to make myself and my family very happy!”
Petter Nylander, CEO of Unibet said: “We are delighted to be giving away this fantastic amount of money! “Moneytainment”, for everyone, anytime, everywhere, that is what Unibet stands for. And this is not the end – there’s a lot more to be won on Unibet! “.
