We all love to hear about stories of casino players who spend real cash, hit a big win, and get to bask in the reassuring warmth of being financially secure for a good couple of years to come! What makes this particular story even more interesting is that this young player, just over 18-years-old, won big time by just playing online slots!
The young Swedish winner, Håkan, is not your typical frequent player in many aspects. He is just like most players who only does make a deposit when he is either trying to cure a case of boredom or if he has some spare cash that he can happily part with by playing online. Moreover, just like most players, Håkan would often let months pass by without playing at all!
The total cash amount that Håkan has officially won is 600,000 SEK!
His key to success
We all have been in this situation - we cannot seem to fall asleep even if everyone else is already sleeping. To help himself relax, Håkan decided to take a few spins on some online slot games. However, this time, he figured he'd make some impulsive big bets, thinking that his gameplay won't last long and he can go back to bed once he's done.
At least, that was his plan.
His win is deemed by many to be pretty incredible - he won two similar big-time amounts on two different slot games, within just 5 minutes of playing!
By "going all out" was actually his key to success. He bets 600 SEK (equal to €64.28 or £46.50) on each spin which is actually a ballsy bet especially for a young player, but his big bets definitely paid off.
Håkan actually only got 2 hours of sleep (from 4am to 6am, as he starts work at 6am), but he stated that he really slept well during those 2 hours after he won two big prizes!
The two online slots that made him a big winner
It started just like any ordinary day, in which a person just wants to play for fun and hope to win a nice sum of money.
Håkan first played Starburst, a Net Entertainment online slot game. It's not his favorite slot game, but he decided to play there just because he wanted to play something different. Within minutes, he got his first big win of 300,000 SEK as he managed to line up 3 expanding Wilds with free Re-spins.
Next, he decided to play his favorite slot game Cash Spin by Bally. After only 5 minutes, he won another astounding 300,000 SEK!
All in all, Håkan won 600,000 SEK (equal to €64,254.74 or £46,596.00)!
Enjoying his winnings
Initially, his parents did not believe that he won that substantial amount of money.
Håkan is actually saving some money so he can buy a car and has just passed his driver's test a few months back, and with his winnings, he can now afford the car of his dreams!
Currently, his parents are the only ones who know about his huge win, but Håkan stated that he plans to throw a special party. He said he'll be booking a VIP table at a posh club in his town where they will be having a champagne celebration.
