betsson jackpots - betsson.com bwinners With 5 jackpot wins of over €100,000 so far in 2014 plus another of just under that sum last night, Betsson.com’s 2014 resolution seems to be – Transform people’s lives and make them winners! The latest addition to the Betsson.com elite and growing club of jackpot winners at Betsson is a 29 year old Norwegian, who won the dream jackpot of nearly €95,000 yesterday, and if that wasn’t enough, he also won a trip to New Orleans and Mardi Gras in a campaign rewarding winners – what a fabulous way to celebrate his upcoming 30th birthday next week. Another happy Betsson customer is Ivan from Eskilstuna in Sweden, who won a whopping €340,000 jackpot on the Ring the Bells slot game last week.  After the initial joy and shock of the win, his only thoughts were of what to do with his winnings.

‘I was lying in my bed with my iPad and morning coffee, clicked stop 3 times and just screamed!’ he quipped. Obviously a very happy Betsson customer, he continued ‘Betsson always have the biggest wins and hopefully more people from Eskilstuna will join Betsson!’. Ivan will also go to Mardi Gras as one of the winners.

The biggest winner so far in 2014 is when another Swedish Betsson player, Per from Lindköping, launched Mega Fortune and put it on ”autospin” to go and watch TV with his wife. When the winner returned to the computer he couldn´t believe his eyes; there was a message on screen saying that he had won the mega jackpot exceeding €2,5 million.

– I couldn´t breathe and was in total disbelief. This has definitely changed life for me and my wife. Now I will retire, there is no reason to work until I´m 65 after winning this much. We are getting a new apartment to start with, Per said after the fantastic win.

As if winning millions wasn´t enough the Swede has also won a trip for 2 to the Maldives in the Betsson´s ”Big Winter Escape” campaign.

But the slot wasn´t finished as Mega Fortune was about to pay out a jackpot on mobile for the first time ever. The winning amount exceeded €650,000…

– I was just lying on the sofa and playing on my tablet and I went in to the bonus round where the wheels was spinning and I clicked stop, stop and stop and I couldn’t believe my eyes! I was in shock, Reino from Sweden told us.

Incredibly Reino only joined Betsson Casino in December, so this is some amazing beginner´s luck!

Mega Fortune

The largest win ever  in Betsson’s history  so far also broke the Guinness World Record at that time as the biggest ever jackpot pay-out in the history of online Casinos. It happened on 24th September 2011 when the Mega Fortune jackpot of €11.7 million was won by a 20 year old Norwegian student from Hordaland.

Having arrived home from a night out with friends, he decided to watch a movie. Since bed was not beckoning he decided to seek some light entertainment with 5 free spins on Mega Fortune and logged in to his Betsson account. That decision made him €11.7 million richer!

‘It was unbelievable, I could not believe it and called my brother and a few friends ‘- the jackpot winner told Betsson.com. ‘I didn’t get to sleep until 6 am… I was in complete shock!

Betsson.com also made a pay-out of €3.12 million in July 2012, when Christer from Linköping, Sweden played a €2 stake on Mega Fortune and hit the jackpot too.

Hall of Gods

Popular online slot game Hall of Gods has had its fair share of making millionaires not once but twice at Betsson.com;

October 2012 saw a Norwegian player from Sunnmøre celebrating his win of a staggering €7.3 million, making it the second biggest win on the gaming site. He was dubbed ‘Norway’s luckiest man’ at the time as he had won over €135,000 with Betsson.com the previous day on the game Super Lucky Frog as well as Hall of Gods!

Described as a quiet and reserved man who preferred to stay anonymous, he was offered financial counselling and a follow-up by Betsson’s company experts. He was quoted as saying; ‘I’ll pay off some debt, then I will see what happens afterwards. I have not had any time to really think about how I want to spend the money yet.’

The third biggest win in the Betsson.com history happened just 5 months later, in April 2013, when a Swedish customer, who had received a comeback offer on a Friday night, hit the Jackpot of over €6.7 million in the Casino game when he logged into his account on the Saturday evening.  His €2 stake activated a free spins bonus, and on the first of the free spins he hit the big jackpot.  The winner, who is a family man in his sixties from Norrköping, Sweden, was overwhelmed at his good fortune.

He was later quoted as saying; ‘I have a big family and I want to share this money with my wife, children and grandchildren but also use it to build a new business. I played with my son beside me and it took us a while to grasp the win after hitting the jackpot. But of course we became super happy after comprehending what had happened!
