But it didn't pay out all at once. Oh no. This slot took it's time and kept paying out again, and again, and again.
Johan is in his mid-thirties, has a small son, and has recently found it hard to find work. Johan, like the rest of us, is a faithful gambler who enjoys the thrill of the win more than the winnings themselves. He’s played at Vera and John Casino for a while and loves slots in particular.
We saw this story and thought it was good, but didn’t grab our attention enough to write about it. Someone (clue: see above) won €36,000 in the launch of the new slot, Silent Run. It was two big payouts in under eight minutes and made for a compelling win.
It was a good story but the lack of details made it difficult to write about or get excited. We applauded silently in our heads and wistfully wished it was us.
And here is where it gets interesting. 36 thousand is a tidy sum, but what do we hear but that the same man then wins nearly half a million euros THAT SAME WEEK?? Now this we had to investigate.
So the story goes:
With his winnings of 36 thousand, Johan kept on playing. Two days on the slots and he got an additional €25,800 win. Vera & John called him. Congratulated him. He was dazed, confused, could this day get any better?
“As a matter of fact” says he to the staff at the casino, figuring lady luck must be on his side “I think I will give it another try. I’ll talk to you when I win over €100,000” and ends the call.
We couldn’t make this up if we tried. At this point Johan is up 160 thousands Euros and he is crazy with excitement. The long dreamed summer home is just within reach. He stops for the day thinking he best take what he has and enjoy it.
But Johan is a gambler after our own hearts – he knows that the thrill of winning is the best part of the game. So the next day he is at it again.
It took him 21 spins but Johan won €26,200 on what is now his favourite slot of all time. Still not satisfied, 8 minutes later came his first €100,000 win of the day when €122,300 landed into his account. And believe it or not, 5 minutes later he hit an even bigger win of €171,215.
By the end this cool and lucky cat had a whopping €479,715 in winnings just waiting for him to collect.
“This is completely crazy.” He stated “I’ve been wandering around my apartment not knowing what to do.”
But apparently, that gave him the idea of a lifetime and he knew exactly what he had to do. Johan has since stated that he plans on buying a brand new apartment for himself and his son to settle in permanently.
We love happy endings. Congratulations to Johan and his headstrong determination to keep Lady Luck by his side.
