Friday, April 10th, 2015 by LuckyMobileSlots

Believe it or not, one man defies the odds as he wins the MegaJackpot on Siberian Storm on a 1.20 bet. Here's his story and how you can do the same.

Leo Vegas casino certainly seems to be competing for the best place to play jackpot slots on mobile.

They currently hold the record for the biggest mobile progressive jackpot ever won at £4.4 million (€5.6 million) on the Mega Fortune slot.

And whilst this story doesn’t end with quite such a huge happy ending, it still has plenty of stormy weather and dream-like wins for one 49 year old, whose life will never be the same again.

And it all starts, as it often does, in the cold northern European lands.

Choosing IGT’s Siberian Storm MegaJackpots slot

International Gaming Technologies launched a pool of progressive jackpot slot machines, only last month.

All connected, you can win the jackpot on any of them. They put this jackpot on some of their most popular slots, namely Cleopatra and Siberian Storm.

Now we should warn you. When you play at an IGT casino like Leo Vegas, you will be given two sets of games. The Cleopatra as standard, and the Cleopatra with the jackpot.

Now, we’re not one to tell you what to do but…

Always, always, always pick the one with the MegaJackpot on it. Here’s why.

A cold blizzard of a game, for a cold blizzard of a day

Not to say that Sweden doesn’t have it’s nice days, but let’s be honest. This time of year, it’s generally a vague bright haze behind grey cloudy skies.

Enter our dear friend Sven.

We don’t know if Sven is his name. All we know is that he is 49 years old, from Sweden, and would rather keeps his details out of the press, thank-you very much.

So, for ease, let’s call him Sven. Because, Sweden.

Our friend isn’t the biggest gambler in the world. Not to say he hasn’t been gambling for years, because he has, but that he doesn’t blow out huge amounts every week.

No more than what a night out at the pub/bars would cost you or I, let’s say.

And even though the odds were against him, he still choose the brilliant Siberian Storm MegaJackpots slot as his game of choice.

Why were the odds against him?

Now we have to applaud Sven. He knew that this version of Siberian Storm would give him equal amounts of big wins as the original.

It still had 720 paylines, up to 96 free spins to trigger, and the multi-way extra pays that gives you multipliers on any spins at any time.

But he choose to play on the version of the game that has the jackpot.

And the reason the odds were against him was because IGT do not hide the fact that the odds of winning the jackpot dramatically improve once the jackpot hits over a million.

Which is when most people choose to play on IGT MegaJackpot games.

They also don’t hide that the more you bet, the better your odds of triggering the jackpot. Still, Sven ignored all advice.

He bet €1.20 and won €774,616 in cash

By all accounts he shouldn’t have won. He wasn’t betting huge amounts, and the jackpot prize was nowhere near the amount it starts to think about breaking.

Bear in mind these jackpots can go into the 2 millions on a very good day.

Yet, proving once again that slot machines follow only the rules of chaos and randomness, the unbelievable happened.

The screen flashed, and the five MegaJackpot scatter symbols lined up, like beautiful golden ducks, all in a row.

Investing in the future of his children and the planet

We like it when big wins come out of nowhere, to players who expect little.

It makes the wins more… meaningful? Somehow?

So what went through Sven’s mind when he won? The same as what would happen if it happened to you; he called someone to make sure he wasn’t going crazy.

“I was in total shock and disbelief and I had to call my son who was at his friends place to confirm that what he saw on the screen was true.” Said Sven

What does someone do with over half a million in cash?

Mostly, when we write these big winner slot stories we get the fairly boring ‘I have no idea’ or the more inventive ‘probably buy a house’.

It’s like, the number is so huge, people can’t quite comprehend spending that much cash at once.

We think it’s a lack of imagination. With that much money you could:

  • Spend a month travelling around the world and staying at the top 5 star hotels
  • Rent the top floor of a Vegas penthouse and invite all your best friends for a blow out weekend
  • AND still buy a huge family home for the future (who needs more than 5 bedrooms really? You know how long it takes to clean anything bigger??)

Not that we’ve thought about it this too much.

Sven, however, is a far more down to earth guy

And has some very specific ideas of how he will invest this small fortune.

“I want to open my own business (a kiosk where people can place their trotting bets etc) so I can leave something behind for my children when I retire. I also want to start giving money to various charities on a monthly basis.”

How about that? Puts our goals to shame. Only just won the cash, and he’s already a philanthropic businessman.

Well done Sven, a well deserved win for a long term gambler who took a chance when the odds where stacked against him.
