Biggest ever slot machine win in Olympic Casino’s history
Posted on 10.01.2006On Sunday, the 8th of January, a 38-year-old man from Tallinn won the largest single slot machine win – one million kroons – at Ülemiste slot casino, which belongs to the Olympic Casino chain.
According to Mr Tarmo Kase, managing director of Olympic Casino Eesti AS, a royal flush on a Game King poker machine secured a record win. "The lucky player had won “modest” 17,500 kroons the same morning, but now we can say that this was only an introduction to bigger winnings," Mr Kase said. "In earlier game combinations a million win has been only one card away five times, and finally the winnings were dealt."
Never before has anybody taken such a large single win on a slot machine at Olympic Casino. The mystery jackpot that links Olympic Casino’s all slot machines has generated over million kroons wins, though. The latest was a 1,088,921 kroons jackpot, which was hit on 22 December at Treasure Hall slot casino in Rocca al Mare Centre.
The million was not the only win at Ülemiste slot casino yesterday. "One player won 95,000 kroons on a poker machine, and in the evening a 19,000 kroons mystery jackpot, a system linking all slot machines at Ülemiste slot casino, took a client by surprise," Mr Kase added.
Wins that have brought many happy surprises have been plentiful particularly at Ülemiste Olympic Casino since the end of last year when the Fort Knox jackpot system was set up there. Slot machines linked to the Fort Knox jackpot system, which carries the name of the famous bullion depository, enable bonusing regardless of a combination or bet. All Fort Knox highest Platinum level wins exceed 200,000 kroons, which Fortuna has kindly delivered eight times in two months at Ülemiste slot casino.
