Finnish Gambler Wins 6.9 Million Euros On Mega Fortune

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

A gambler from Helsinki Finland won €6.9 million on a €2 wager while playing Mega Fortune last week.

The massive progressive jackpot was won on January 18th at Paf Casino, and the player, who has not been identified yet said "It was early in the morning when I won and I was in shock and couldn't sleep. After a long while I fell asleep and then when I woke up I checked my gaming account straight away to see if the money was still there."

Paf Head of Press and Public Relations Anders Sims said "These wins are obviously really great for Paf too. They show that it is possible to have really big wins with us, that you really can realise your dreams and win a fantastic jackpot."

“It is important that we as a gaming company take our responsibility and don't leave the winner without any support. We make sure that the customer receives financial guidance and have a routine and checklist that we go through with all big winners with the purpose to help them in this very unexpected but joyful situation."

We reviewed Paf Casino recently and they are very impressive. I like the fact they are showing concern for the player and providing assistance and financial guidance to try to make sure they don't squander it.
