Posted on 07.04.2003

The prize sum of the Mystery Jackpot electronic bonus-prize system connecting the casinos of the Olympic Casino chain swelled to more than EEK 1.56 million on Friday, beating the record sum won in the autumn of 2000.

The Olympic Casino Mystery Jackpot system offers the chance to become a casino millionaire 24 hours a day 7 days a week via only EEK 1 bet made on a gaming machine. The Mystery Jackpot system connects the Olympic Casino gaming machines of ten casinos and gaming halls across Estonia. A certain percentage from every bet goes to the growing jackpot fundKASSA. The Jackpot winning instant is decided randomly by a computer system; the size of a bet made does not influence the probability of winning. “We have ascertained it is only a matter of time when the biggest casino prize in Estonia will be won, “ commented the Olympic Casino marketing executive Marje Braunbrück on the record size of the jackpot.

Although it is by no means easy to win the jackpot, the gamers can be certain they receive the whole sum if they win. A casino jackpot can only be won by a single person, making it different from numerous lottery games where many players can have the same winning combination and the main prize must be divided.

In addition to the Mystery Jackpot Olympic Casino introduced a new charity jackpot in January of the current year, operating on the same principles: a certain percentage from every bet made on gaming machines goes to the charity fund. The new jackpot is part of the Good Deed By Every Bet charity project that lasts throughout the year and celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Olympic Casino. The Sillamäe orphanage Lootus, Estonian Union Of Sports For The Disabled and the Pegulinna Birth Clinic have received support during the first two months of the charity jackpot. The next Olympic Casino charity jackpot, collected until the end of April will be used to support young skiers.

Until present the biggest one time casino prize won in the Baltics, EEK 1.556.735, was also won in the Olympic Casino Mystery Jackpot system in 2000. The most recent Mystery Jackpot was won by Niina, a lady approching her retirement age, in September, 2002. She made her lucky bet in the Olympic Casino gaming machine casino Vene tsaar in Mustakivi.
