Posted on 11.03.2003

The prize amount of the electronic extra winning system Mystery Jackpot that connects the slot machines belonging to the Olympic Casino Eesti casino chain exceeded EEK 1.4 million on March 1, 2003 and is approaching the record - EEK 1.55 million - that was made in 2000.
In the Mystery Jackpot system of Olympic Casino one may become a casino millionaire 24 hours a day on 7 days a week with a one kroon stake in a slot machine. The slot machines of ten casinos and slot casinos of Olympic Casino all over Estonia have been connected to the Mystery Jackpot system. From each stake made a certain percent is accumulated for the growing jackpot bank. The time of hitting Jackpot is determined by the computer system by random selection and the probability of winning is not affected by the amount of stakes made. According to the Marketing Director of Olympic Casino Marje Braunbrück the majority Mystery Jackpots won have remained between EEK 1-1.5 million. “The probability of a new record is exactly as big as the chance that the jackpot is hit at this very moment,“ Braunbrück was unable to predict the great moment. She added that the only certain opportunity for the gambler to increase this probability is to place stakes in whatever amount in a slot machine.

The largest single winning in the Baltic countries ever was also won in the Mystery Jackpot system of Olympic Casino in 2000, when the total amount reached EEK 1,556,735 kroons. Last Mystery Jackpot was won by a young pensioner Niina in September 2002, when she placed her lucky stake in the Olympic Casino Mustakivi slot casino Russian Tsar.

In addition to Mystery Jackpot Olympic Casino launched a charitable jackpot system in January this year that functions according to the same principle. In this system a certain percent from each stake made in the slot machine is accumulated for the charity fund. The new charity jackpot is one part of the great campaign celebrating the 10th year of operation of Olympic Casino, called “Benefaction in every stake,” that will last until the end of 2003.
