We've heard of the luck of the Irish, but did you know there's such a thing as the luck of the Swedes? No? Let us tell you a tale of wonderment and hope...
Sweden; a country full of cheap pine furniture, meatballs and dill. A country that, we can tell you from experience, is underrated by the rest of Europe. It has oceans, it has islands, it has sunshine that lasts all day and night. Add some mid-summer parties with alcohol that burns the back of your spine and really, it surprises us that more people don’t head over there for the warmer months.
Tourist boards aside, we want you to imagine this land of tolerant Vikings and ask yourself this: but what makes them so special? Because apparently, whatever grog they’ve been drinking has been good to them, with Leo Vegas mobile casino celebrating TWO big winners in one week.
That’s two huge payouts and the only things the gentlemen had in common was their sex, their country and their love for NetEnt slot games.
We have no names for the two men, who would rather remain anonymous after their big slot wins. We shall call one Sven and the other Björn because stereotypes exist for a reason.
We shall also, in view of our international audience, translate the amounts into currencies that don’t have so many zeros at the end.
Sven is a pretty laid back guy and takes things one day at a time. Gambling is fun and usually better than a night out. So when it comes to gambling he only bets as much as it would cost him to buy a beer; around 75 SEK. That’s about, US$11, €8 or £6 for the rest of us.
Unaware that, comparatively speaking, beer is expensive in Sweden (what? wasn’t that what you were thinking?), he started spinning on the simple but popular Flowers slot by Netent.
The reason it’s so popular, no doubt, is because of the free spins round. You can win up to 30 free spins with a 10x multiplier attached. It’s hard, don’t get us wrong, but has proven itself by creating a few big slot wins in it’s past. So not impossible.
As Sven proved, in fact, when he finally closed the game for the night having won an incredible 360,150 SEK. (Or €40,029 / £31,956 / US$54,208.)
He was, needless to say, ecstatic and shocked to be such a lucky win.
This lucky 31 year old has been a seasoned gambler for some time. Björn logged in at Leo Vegas casino with one aim in mind: to win. Living in the little city of Malmö (population 303,873 at last count. Thank-you Wikipedia.) he’d passed a nice Sunday with nothing much to do. The weather not looking as great as it had in the past week, he decided to turn on his computer and begin his favourite past time in the whole wide world: playing the NetEnt slot Mega Joker.
A simple classic online slot, Mega Joker also has a progressive jackpot which is a clear draw for fans. It’s not as big as Mega Fortune jackpot slot and so doesn’t go into the millions, but certainly high enough to make you think twice. Best of all, it can be triggered whether you play the minimum bet of 0.10 or go all the way up to 10.
As it happened, Björn was betting the maximum amount of 10 in cash (or 100 SEK in his world). We’re sure that it wouldn’t have made a difference to his level of happiness had he won the jackpot on a lower denomination.
“It feels absolutely wonderful. I was just about to make my last spin, and as I did my last play I saw something I’ve never seen on that game before. All lights started to blink and I soon realized that I won the jackpot. When I saw my balance increase, that’s when I realized I just won almost 500 000 SEK!”
The actual amount he won was 494 286 SEK. Or translated… (god%$%”!£$damn$*&%!”?currencies)… €54,964… or £43,865… or US$74,426.
You could be. All you have to do is play and maybe we will be making up your name in our next big winner story.
