Wouldn't it be amazing to see two simultaneous hits of a progressive jackpot? Imagine being the guy who hits the second jackpot immediately after the epic one is hit. It would still be cool, but a bit like a punch to the stomach.

Odds are we will never see it happen, but still...

OMGosh, that is insane!

And I am happy when I win like 200 dollars. I think you would have to peel me off the ceiling if I ever won a BIG jackpot. lol! I wouldn't believe it until the money was in my hand, anyway!

Someone will have a happy holiday! Smile

You know what would truly suck - if you hit it a split second before the meter had a chance to refresh on your game. You would think you had won €8.6 million but instead you get whatever it resets to (€900k or something).

This is the related press release from Paf:

Quote:

A player in Finland has won 8.65 million euros on the slot machine Arabian Nights at Åland based Paf. It is a new Finnish record for online gaming – and the second largest in the world.

It was early Friday evening and the Paf player from the Helsinki region who had bet 5 euros could hardly believe his eyes when he looked at his gaming account. A win of 8.65 million euros, could it be true?
“Me and my wife shouted and hugged each other in joy for five minutes. I could not believe it was for real,” says the Paf winner. “I restarted the computer, and sure enough, the same unbelievable amount was still in my account.”

The win is the largest online gaming jackpot in Finland ever, and the second largest in the world.

The record breaker on Arabian Nights was a little dazed after the win, but at Paf's advice will refrain from playing for a while. Here's what the winner had to say about the future:

“I've been working a lot lately, so now I'll focus on my family and children, cut down on work and think about what quality of life really involves.”

After news of the win, he chose to continue an unforgettable Friday night with a sauna to collect his thoughts.

Paf winners receive advice

Every time a Paf customer wins a large sum of money, the gaming company does its best to give them support and advice in their new situation.

“It is important that we as a gaming company take responsibility and don’t leave the winner adrift. We ensure that everyone gets financial advice from a bank, and our recommendation is always that you should keep your identity secret,” says Anders Sims, Head of Press and PR at Paf.

The previous Finnish record was 6.9 million euros and was also set at Paf in January this year on the slot machine Mega Fortune. The new record may not last long as the previous record-setting slot machine, Mega Fortune, currently has a jackpot of over 9.6 million euros.

The world record for online gaming is just over 11.7 million euros and was also won on the Mega Fortune slot machine.
