The biggest casino win of all times - 1,79 million kroons - was won at Olympic Casino
Posted on 15.10.2004The biggest single casino win of all times in Estonia – 1 786 498 kroons – was won yesterday in the early hours of October 10th. This historic win was issued by the poker-jackpot that connects oasis poker tables at Reval Park Hotel&Casino in Tallinn. The winnings were transferred to the bank account of the lucky winner Jaan.
“We’ve been holding our breaths with great excitement and waiting for the record jackpot to drop since May when it first reached 1,7 million,” said Marje Braunbrück, the marketing manager of Olympic Casino. “The poker-jackpot reached the magic two million margin in August this year.”
In the early hours of this Sunday, Jaan who is in his thirties, succeeded in getting the royal flush in poker table at Reval Park Hotel&Casino, which supplied his bank account with the historic gain of 1 786 498 kroons. Jaan’s bet when winning the record sum was just a mere 100-kroon starting bet and 50-kroon bonus bet.
The first part of this over two-million-kroon jackpot was won on October 4th when Allan, who is in his forties, won a straight flush with combination of 20% of all the jackpot i.e. 445 698 kroons. This remarkable winning sum was complemented by another 50 000-kroon table win.
“The entire Olympic Casino team is happy to witness big winnings,” said Marje Braunbrück, and added an interesting fact that record winnings tend to take place in Olympic Casinos. “The last winning of all times was also won in Olympic Casino. This winning of that time was given by Mystery Jackpot – an extra winnings’ system that connects all our slot-machines,” said Braunbrück. At the moment, the new Mystery Jackpot is 809 585 kroons and it can be won with just 10 cents.
