Online casino player wins $5.5 million jackpot

Online casino player wins $5.5 million jackpot The online casino "Blackjack Ballroom" has made a Finish player a very wealthy man, a $5,556,753.68 richer than before. Klaus E., from Finland became an instant millionaire on Friday, after placing a $0.50 bet on the "Mega-Moolah" progressive slot machine and won the gigantic jackpot prize of over $5.5 million. Blackjack Ballroom online casino is one of the 18 online gambling properties owned by CasinoRewards group and Klaus became the fourth person to win a progressive slots jackpot totalling over one million at the CasinoRewards online casinos. He hopes to pay off his apartment and go on a vacation as the first of many things he can do with his huge online casino win. Arrangements are currently being made to fly Klaus to Sydney, Australia where he will be presented with a check of his winnings and celebrate what is the biggest win in Blackjack Ballroom's history.

 "Those that say thirteen is an unlucky number have only to take one look at Klaus E. who not only becomes the Microgaming Progressive Jackpot's thirteenth millionaire, but by far and away the biggest jackpot winner we've ever had. Mega-Moolah has been tantalising players for months now and its finally delivered on a massive scale -- with $5,556,753.68 being one of the largest payouts this industry has ever seen," said Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, the software developer behind the Blackjack Ballroom and the company which would actually pay the millions to the lucky gambler. Contrary to the popular belief, it's not the online casinos who pay out the progressive jackpots, rather the software developer, in this case Microgaming. Some of the most popular Microgaming-powered online casinos include the famous RiverBelle Casino and Lucky Nugget.
