(PRESS RELEASE) -- A 26-year-old man from Stockholm won over 37 million SEK, equal to 4.1 million EUR, in the Unibet Casino & Games casino game Arabian Nights. The newly fledged millionaire put in the lowest possible stake, 50 SEK, in order to hit the jackpot.
Thursday afternoon at 15:29 the jackpot in the casino game Arabian Nights was hit, and the 26-year-old man was able to cash in 37,335,618 SEK. It is the second-largest prize that Unibet Sweden has ever given out, and the third-largest in the history of Unibet worldwide.
"I was so surprised, it's hard to understand. You hear and read about others who win but think that it will never happen to me. And then this happened. It felt like I would have a heart attack," said the winner.
The casino player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, takes over the third place in Unibet's millionaire club, which includes a Dutch national who previously won 46 million SEK on the Mega Fortune.
"It feels incredibly fun to hand out such a large Christmas present with only a few days left until Christmas Eve. It was clearly a very excited and happy winner I spoke to. He said that it will take time to digest the win and still had not quite got over the shock," said Jonas Nilsson, press officer at Unibet Sweden.
The money will include a holiday with family and friends and a new apartment.
"I'm going to take it easy, invest some money and not waste it. It´s hard to decide now right away, I have not really had time to digest it yet. But it will probably be some vacation, then share with loved ones. Then I'll probably buy an apartment, too," the new multimillionaire continued.
