- First winner strikes it lucky on Mega Fortune, collecting $3.5 million
- Second goes even bigger five days later, taking home a cool $4.9 million
It’s been a good month to be a player of online casino slots. Or rather, it’s been a good month to be one of the two Casumo players who recorded mammoth jackpot wins.
Earlier in April, over the space of just five days, two lucky punters walked away $8.5 million (£6.7 million) richer courtesy of the site’s progressive jackpot slots.
Although the identities of the fortuitous players isn’t known, it has been confirmed that they hail from different countries, and Casumo has also confirmed the online slots that furnished them with their bumper wins.
One player succeeded in taking a $3.5 million (£2.8 million) jackpot from NetEnt’s Mega Fortune, a feat that occurred on Thursday March 30. No sooner had the fizz in the champagne glasses settled than it was the turn of a second punter to follow suit, helping themselves to a $4.9 million (£3.9 million) jackpot the following Tuesday.
Mega Fortune was the slot which turned the first player, a 28-year-old man, into an instant millionaire, while its sister slot, Mega Fortune Dreams, was responsible for the second bumper win.
The theme of the games is certainly in keeping with the lifestyle the fortune-blessed pair will now be enjoying, for the Mega Fortune slot is awash with champagne, wads of cash, designer watches and all the other trappings of high end living.
Struck gold with a $2.75 spin
A few more snippets of information have been released about the $3.5 million winner, tidbits that suggest that such an event might – might – just happen to any of us on a good day.
After completing his evening shift, the Swedish national got home to eat dinner and then play a spot of slots before bed. With just a $2.75 (£2.15) spin he struck gold and the rest, as they say, is history.
Biggest win in Casumo history
The jackpot that was won five days later was the largest Casumo Casino had ever paid out. Mega Fortune Dreams, just like Mega Fortune, celebrates high class living, in this instance on a superyacht replete with tropical islands, diamond rings, sparkling watches and more of the obligatory champagne.
With scatters appearing as a big ol’ diamond, the game is certainly exciting, as the 30-year-old jackpot winner discovered. Remarkably, the player chose the game by complete coincide, made a deposit of $25 (£20) and hit the jackpot with a $1.20 (£1) spin.
Casumo has certainly had its share of success stories. Four years ago a Finnish player won £2.9 million at the site and last year a Swede and a Brit won £2.6 million and £2.7 million respectively. The latest and largest win at Casumo Casino however puts those previous feats in the shade.
It’s rare you see big wins like this in such a close timeframe, which is why we had to roundup the month in style. For two lucky players, early April was a good time to hit the online casinos and who knows what May will hold. What does this story tell you? Well, it shows you that you stand as good a chance as anyone of winning big if you bide your time and play to win – to do it’s clear that slots with progressive jackpots may just be the way forward. Be sure to scout out the games in advance to make sure you know what you’re playing for, and how. And who knows, this time next month we could be reporting on your big win.
