For the second time in its 11 year history, the Australia-based Casino Rewards online casino group rolled out the red carpet and lavished warm hospitality on a newbie player who hit a Euro 3.8 million jackpot at one of the group’s casinos on the Mega Moolah progressive slot recently.
Newbie ‘A.D.’ and his partner were flown out to Sydney, Australia to be entertained at the top notch restaurant Aria, overlooking the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge. After a press photo event in the Royal Botanic Gardens, A.D. was handed a cheque for the full amount amid applause from casino personnel.
“I plan to give something from my winnings to charity, and then I will help some relatives, my girlfriend… some more travelling too, that’s for sure! I may never stop working… I may have some other people working for me… basically I’m not in a great hurry to spend this money,” A.D. said.
His win is the second biggest jackpot win at a Casino Rewards online casino, following that of K.E., who hit a $5.5 million jackpot in 2008 on the same online slot.
“The day I won the jackpot is a beautiful memory,” AD recalled. “It’s still quite vivid. I played Mega Moolah, the jackpot screen opened, the wheel was spinning, there were a few segments on which it could have stopped, but that was exceptional and I thought that that could not happen to me… but it did!
“I could not believe it at first, then I called to make sure, because I thought it could be an error… but it wasn’t! I stayed there for I don’t know how long, staring at the ceiling and thinking lots of things. At first I didn’t think much, I only thought that my life was most probably going to change.”
Like his record win predecessor KE, the latest instant millionaire can thank a promotional CD posted to him by Casino Rewards for his good fortune; AD downloaded the gift, and that attracted him to the casino and the gambling group’s services and action.
