|Finnish gambler Klaus E told of his shock at winning over $5m on a tiny bet at BlackJackBallroom – thinking that the string of numbers flashing up on his screen was a telephone number.|
Klaus had wagered a mere $0.50 on a slots machine at BlackJackBallroom and then he saw the reels align and the huge number $5,556,753 dominate his screen – he thought it was a United States landline.
“I thought it was a US phone number,” the stunned gambler said. “It couldn’t be a jackpot, I must be mistaken. I went outside to get some fresh air and when I came back I had $5.5m sitting in my casino account.”
The win – one of the largest recorded in online casino history – saw Klaus jetted off to Australia to collect his massive cheque.
“In Sydney, the CasinoRewards team took me to the wildlife park, the aquarium and a restaurant by the Opera House,” he said. He has revealed he will invest his winnings. The highlight of his Ozzie trip? “Apart from collecting my enormous cheque, it was having my photo taken with a koala.”
