Monica Won a €2.6 Million Slot Jackpot… And Didn’t Realise

Saturday, April 25th, 2015 by LuckyMobileSlots

How do you win €2,633,052 whilst playing jackpot slots and not realise it? By playing half asleep apparently. Here's Monica's full big win story.

€2.6 Million Jackpots Slot Online Winner at Guts

We’ve had a whole host of big winner stories lately.

We had the big Twin Spin player who walked away with €31,564.50 after a series of clever bets. Then there was the 5.3 million jackpot won on Mega Moolah back on 14th of April.

Not to mention the IGT MegaJackpots win on the 10th of April…

Basically, April has been the month for winning big on jackpot slots.

The difference between those stories and this one is that the winners realised that they’d won a life-changing amount.

Monica on the other hand, had no clue until Guts casino called her the next day to confirm. They had to tell her seven times in a row before she believed them.

Imagine this, it’s 3:47 am, and everything is dark

The house is quiet, not a noise can be heard, not even the pitter patter of mice…

Right, we are making this up, we know.

But you can still kinda see it if you close your eyes, right?

There’s Monica, sitting at her desk, the lights are dim, and her face is flashed in a halo of light from her computer screen.

She presses spin.

Arabian Nights was her game of choice

One of NetEnt’s older jackpot slot games, Arabian Nights is everything you want when you are trying to escape to a far away exotic land at 3am in the morning.

This Islamic world of the ninth to thirteenth centuries is old, but popular with savvy jackpot slot hunters.

Mostly because it rises high enough to give you a few million, but hits often enough that any time you play… that could be it.

She’d played Arabian Nights slot many a time

A 10 payline game, this NetEnt online slot is incredibly simple.

The Arabian man is the wild symbol and multiplies any wins by two. The scatter is the golden lamp, and get 3 or more and you’ll get 15 free spins where all wins are tripled.

That’s the game that Monica was playing. Getting five of a kind symbol win with a 3x multiplier is what she was really chasing.

Sure, she knew about the jackpot… in the same way that you know that at any point you might get a phone call and tell you that some distant relative left you a fortune somewhere.

It happens to some people out there, because you hear it in the news, but you don’t think it will happen to you.

Still, Monica was betting the max bet of €5 a spin, because whilst she didn’t think it would happen, she wasn’t stupid enough not to at least try for the jackpot.

Which is why when she did, she didn’t notice it happened

Here’s the thing. When you’ve never won a jackpot before, you’re don’t quite know what it looks like when it happens.

And what it looked like to Monica, at 3:47am with her blurry eyes and unfocused mind, was 5 wilds in a row.

Now here’s the thing. She knew she had won something, but she hadn’t been paying particular attention to the reels, and her bank balance hadn’t changed much.

The thing about jackpots is that you don’t suddenly get 2 million in your cashout button.

Plus we mentioned it was 4am right?

Monica played a few more spins and then went straight to bed.

The surprise phone call in the morning

Guts casino, of course, knew about this straight away and got to work.

They contacted NetEntertainment, got the win confirmed, and when they thought it would be polite to call Monica to congratulate her… they did.

And Monica had no clue what they were talking about.

She asked them seven times if it was real. Guts weren’t quite sure what it would take for her to realise that she was now a new millionaire.

“I can’t believe it, I think I may faint, is it really true.” After a little more convincing, Monica shouted out “this is so crazy!”

What is she going to do with €2.6 million?

It’s a really hard sum to get your head around.

How do you even plan to use up that kind of money?

Seeing as she had the whole of five minutes to think about her new found millions, her choices reflect why Monica is so well deserving of her win.

“I will pay off my home loan, help out my children and my grandchildren, donate some money to charity and then enjoy a little travelling with my family.”

So home, family and travelling.

That’s the right priorities right there.
