Posted on 20.09.2006

The 32-year-old construction worker of Estonian nationality said he doesn’t go to a casino very often, but whenever he does, he prefers modern slot machines. Until now he has never won more that 10, 000 EEK, but last night he became a millionaire. The man had no hesitations as to how he is going to spend the money. ‘I’ll buy an apartment,’ he said after recovering from the first excitement.

The largest ever sum of money won in Estonia from a slot machine was won thanks to the jackpot system called Cash Fever that was first set up in the Treasure Hall of the casino in June last year. The jackpot system has four levels and it connects four slot machines. The bonus game gets randomly activated and as of last night the highest level jackpot had raised up to the record sum.

The lucky man was playing with the bet of 30 EEK when Dr.Cash Feaver got activated in the slot machine and allowed him to play free bonus games. These went very smoothly and the man made it to the highest level jackpot that was exactly 2, 151, 316 EEK by the moment he won. According to the lucky man, he first thought he was dreaming. A moment later he was in full ecstasy and shared his feelings with everybody else in the casino at that time.

According to the marketing manager of the Olympic Casino Mrs. Helen Tarmas, the highest level jackpot of the Cash Fever gaming system starts raising right after falling. ‘It doesn’t start growing from zero, but from 250 000 EEK.’ Said Mrs. Helen Tarmas. The jackpot system gives the customers additional opportunities also in the Tropicana Olympic Casino in Annelinna Centre in Tartu. The highest tempting level there is close to 400, 000 EEK at this time.

Multi-level jackpot systems offer additional opportunities to win in other Olympic Casinos as well. The most popular of them is Fort Knox, named the American Goldmine, that has brought some good luck to several dozens of customers. Thanks to platinum wins they have become close to a quarter of a million richer. Fort Knox games have been set up in the Tzar of Russia Casino in Mustakivi Shopping Centre, the Island of Temptations Casino in Pirita TOP SPA Hotel and the Olympic Casinos in Tartu and Ülemiste.
