The win took place last Thursday at Unibet, when the man hit the jackpot at the Swedish casino. The jackpot is the second largest that the casino has ever doled out.
Commenting on his massive win the new multi-millionaire said, "I was so surprised, it's hard to understand. You hear and read about others who win but think that it will never happen to me. And then this happened. It felt like I would have a heart attack."
"I'm going to take it easy, invest some money and not waste it. It´s hard to decide now right away, I have not really had time to digest it yet. But it will probably be some vacation, then share with loved ones. Then I'll probably buy an apartment too."
Unibet Sweden Press Officer Jonas Nilsson added: "It feels incredibly fun to hand out such a large Christmas present with only a few days left until Christmas Eve. It was clearly a very excited and happy winner I spoke to. He said that it will take time to digest the win and still had not quite got over the shock."
