- Norwegian woman hits the jackpot playing Mega Fortune Dreams at Casumo Casino
- Having tried her luck at Starburst, she switches games, bets 50 cents (40p) and pockets $83K (£65K)
Larvik is a sleepy Norwegian municipality with a population of less than 45,000 which is best known for its Viking history. It’s a place where not much ever happens, but that changed last week thanks to the efforts of one Norwegian woman.
A player at online casino Casumo, she was enjoying the Mega Fortune Dreams online slot when with a single spin costing just 50 cents (40p) she landed a jackpot worth over $83,000 (£65,000). That’s more than £1 for every resident of Larvik.
A big win, from a small stake
It seems safe to assume that the anonymous gambler will be keeping the jackpot all to herself however, for $83k (£65k) only goes so many ways. Although this sum is dwarfed by some of the huge jackpots that have been won at Casumo in recent months, it’s still a respectable amount for what amounted to a few minutes work’. Perhaps not quite a mega fortune, but a small fortune at least.
What makes this win so seismic is that it was generated off such a small stake. Call it beginner’s luck, but the woman landed her modest fortune on only the second slot she tried after signing up at Casumo.
First it was Starburst and then she moved on to Mega Fortune Dreams, a NetEnt slot prized for its trio of progressive jackpots. The 20 payline slot, which has an RTP just shy of 96%, is a medium variance game that awards 12 free spins accompanied by a 2x multiplier.
‘He wouldn’t believe me’
“I had no idea that Mega Fortune Dreams had a jackpot until I won,” recounted the winner, before going on to explain that her husband wasn’t aware she’d even created a casino account. His first fear was that his spouse had lost a load of money, “But when I told him about the jackpot he just wouldn’t believe me. When he realised I was telling the truth he just sat down and was really shocked!”
Remarkable as the woman’s win is, it pales in comparison to two mammoth wins that were recorded at Casumo during April. In just five days, £6.7 million was won by two punters, one of whom was playing Mega Fortune, the prequel to Mega Fortune Dreams. It was on the the follow-up game, Mega Fortune Dreams, that a 30-year-old player deposited £20 and won a multi-million pound jackpot with a £1 spin. When it comes to creating winners, Casumo isn’t shy about touting its strong track record, and understandably so. What’s the point in paying out a big win if you can’t tell the world about it?
