We love big casino wins… And winners
We’re going to let you in on a little secret: most online casinos don’t like winners.
So it’s a good thing that at LeoVegas we always do things a little differently; we march to the beat of a different drum over here. We love winners. And the only thing we love more than winners are winners happy to share their story of how it all happened. And this is your chance to do just that, right here on this very page.
In the most prestigious land-based casinos in the world- be it Las Vegas or Monte Carlo- big winners are congratulated by the Casino Manager, treated to free Hotel suites and gourmet dinners.
Well, we go a step further. We’ve created this section of our blog to celebrate online Jackpot winners, progressive Jackpot winners, big casino wins on other slots and other quirky and amusing stories about LeoVegas Casino wins.
It’s not just about the instant millionaires and the mind-boggling largest slot machine wins. We also want to celebrate the smaller wins that came with a funny story, the non-money prizes our customers particularly enjoyed and other casino tales that will live long in the memory.
As the LeoVegas Editor of this page says: ‘’Prize doesn’t matter.’’
Jackpot winner stories
We’re going to start the ball rolling with a few stories we particularly enjoyed. By given reasons we have disguised their real names and exchanged it for something ‘appropriate’.
“The Mobile man”
In January 2015 a LeoVegas customer made history by becoming the largest jackpot winner and taking place in the Guinness World Record Book… Using a mobile device. Playing Mega Fortune, he managed to activate the triple Jackpot bonus game and win 5.6 Million Euros, secured with a bet of just 1.25 Euros. Now, that’s still a fair bit off the 17.8 million Euros won by a Finnish player a few years ago but it made the record books nonetheless for being the biggest win secured using a mobile device.
And if you need further proof that LeoVegas really is King of Mobile for online casino, consider this: it was LeoVegas who had given him the iPad he was playing on when he got the Jackpot!
“Hi, I’m from Austria…You can call me Lady Luck”
To secure one big win is lucky. Two separate big wins is quite the story. But three? That’s just freaky.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to a LeoVegas player from Austria. A 52, 500 Euro win on ‘Mega Fortune Dreams‘ wasn’t one of the big Jackpot wins on the famous slot- it’s normally at least a million when it’s won- but it was a sign of things to come. She followed that up with a win of 40,600 Euros on the game ‘Jackpot 50,000 Jester’ and shortly after took 32,800 Euros off the slot ‘Million Cents’.
No wonder we felt like asking her: ‘’Excuse me, miss. Any thoughts on this week’s Euro Millions numbers?’’
“Last time Lucky”
A couple of years ago a LeoVegas Swedish customer from Malmö was wondering what to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon at home when he decided to play a few spins on Mega Joker. A few rounds later and he was around 55,000 Euros richer. Nice win but what’s so special about it? (we hear you ask). The answer is it was his very last spin. In his own words:
“It feels absolutely wonderful. I was just about to make my last spin, and as I did my last play I saw something I’ve never seen on that game before. All lights started to blink and I soon realized that I won the jackpot. When I saw my balance increase, that’s when I realized I just won almost 500 000 SEK!”
“Apple of my eyes”
We told you that this section isn’t just about the biggest online slot wins and this story isn’t even about money at all.
The release of the new iPhone is always a big deal in the world of tech and Apple fans are always desperate to get their hands on the latest iPhone as quickly as possible. You’ll hear your friend saying: ‘’I got it the day after it was released.’’ Or ‘’I was officially the 124th person in the UK to buy it.’’
But what if you were the first? When the iPhone 6 was released a couple of years ago, we sent one of our employees to the Apple store on London’s Regent’s Street and he managed to buy the very first one that went on sale in the UK. But he didn’t keep it.
He instantly gave it to a waiting courier who took it to the home of a LeoVegas customer living in Wimbledon, who had won it in a draw open to all LeoVegas customers in the UK who had played Casino that week.
‘’It was such a surprise to have a knock on my door that early and then to see what had been delivered – I couldn’t believe it.’’ said the lucky winner.
