A Swedish man named Issa has hit one of the three progressive jackpots on the Mega Fortune slot machine in Vera & John Casino and has been rewarded with nearly half a million Swedish kronor (crowns).
On a €0.30 bet during a short break at work, Issa managed to trigger a progressive jackpot worth €55 760.
“The first thing I did was to call my spouse and tell her that all hour loans had been paid off,” Issa says in an interview with Vera & John after the jackpot win. “At first, she didn’t understand what I was talking about.”
Issa started playing at Vera & John after watching a TV commercial a few weeks ago. He made a deposit of just 100 crowns (roughly €12). Thanks to several small wins, the money in his account lasted for several weeks without any need for a refill. When he made his lucky bet at Mega Fortune, his account balance was still at 95 crowns.
“I never thought I would win,” says Issa. “Of course, I knew there was a chance and I was naturally hoping for it to happen. That’s why I picked Mega Fortune – you don’t need to make a large bet to have a chance of winning. But I never thought I would be the one sitting here with half a million crowns. I’m so darn happy.”
Issa will now use his prize money to make the household debt free, before going on a family vacation to Disneyland Paris.
