Leaving the casino 400,000 kroons richer, Erki has been lucky in casinos before – his largest winnings yet amounted to 80,000 kroons and that was also in a game of poker. “I visit the casino nearly every week, I mostly play poker,” is how Erki, living in Tartu, described his relations with casinos.
The married man could not say anything specific yet about how he will use his winnings. “I have no special expensive hobbies,” he said. “Tongue-in-cheek one might say that spending money is my hobby and I can promise to be good in spending the money I won.”
According to Tarmo Kase, the executive manager of Olympic Casino, the 400,000 kroons won on the slot machine this Friday were the second largest winnings ever at the Olympic Casino in Ülemiste Keskus. “The casino has been open since April last year and the largest winnings to date of 529,800 kroons were collected last October,” said Mr.Kase.
