World Record €11.7 Million Online Jackpot Won By Norweigan Student

A Norweigan student in his 20’s has become the world’s biggest online jackpot winner after scooping an incredible €11.7 million ($15.9m) playing the Mega Fortune slot game at online casino
Amazingly, the anonymous player didn’t even have to even gamble with his own money to win the staggering sum as he already had several free spins lodged on his account, a promotional tactic used by online casinos to attract new customers.
Apparently, the Norweigan student from Hordaland, still had 10 free spins to use and so one night after returning back from the cinema, he tried his hand at the Slot Machine Mega Fortune, whose rising progressive jackpot had been getting a lot of attention recently. He subsequently won €8 with his 10 free spins, and gambling on with his winnings at €0.50 a spin, he then hit the incredible €11.7 million jackpot on his 11th spin.
As the mystery Norweigan guy then explains: “Usually I play in Betsson’s brilliant Sports Book, but I saw the huge jackpot and thought: ” Yeah! Let’s give the free spins a shoot and see What Happens.”
“It was a shocking experience when the €11.7 millions dropped before my eyes. I couldn’t believe it. This is unbelievable, I didn’t believe it and had to call my brother and a few friends.”
“It hasn´t really sunk in yet. I couldn´t sleep until 06:00am due to the shock! I woke up at 07.00 again. It was just impossible to sleep, and I am shaking and sweating. I haven´t thought about what to do with the winnings. I need to try and calm down before even thinking of what I do with the money!”
As well as being the biggest amount won in online history, it is also Norway’s biggest ever jackpot, including that of the national lottery. The lucky winner has now apparently accepted Betsson’s offer of  financial advice to ensure he invests his fortunes wisely.
