Winning big at Casumo!Tuesday, Jul 4, 2017 13:43
Out in the Sticks!
Larvik is a quiet Norwegian town with a population of less than 45,000 which is best known for its Viking history. It’s a place where not a whole lot ever happens, but that was all turned on its head last week thanks to the efforts of one Norwegian woman.
A player at the online casino, Casumo, she had been enjoying the Mega Fortune Dreams online slot when with a single spin costing just 50 cents, she landed a jackpot worth over $83,000 (£65,000). That’s more than £1 for every resident in Larvik!
It seems a safe assumption that the anonymous gambler will be keeping the jackpot all to herself, however, since $83k (£65k) only goes so many ways. Though this sum is dwarfed by some of the bigger jackpots that have been won at Casumo in recent times, it’s still a respectable amount for what amounted to a few minutes work. Perhaps not quite a huge fortune, but a small fortune at least.
Small Stake, Big Returns!
What makes this win so incredible is that it was generated off such a small stake. Call it beginner’s luck, but the woman scooped her fortune on only the second slot she tried after she’d signed up at Casumo.
First, it was Starburst and then she moved on to Mega Fortune Dreams, a NetEnt slot prized for its trio of progressive jackpots. The 20 payline slot, which has an RTP just shy of 96%, is a medium variance game that awards 12 free spins accompanied by a 2x multiplier.
“I had no idea that Mega Fortune Dreams had a jackpot until I won,” recalled the winner, before going on to explain that her husband wasn’t aware she’d that she’d even created a casino account. His first thought was that his spouse had lost a load of money, “But when I told him about the jackpot he just wouldn’t believe me. When he realised I was telling the truth he just sat down and was really shocked!”
Other Notable Wins
As remarkable as the woman’s win is, it pales in comparison to two gigantic wins that were recorded at Casumo during the month of April. In just five days, £6.7 million was won by two punters, one of whom was playing Mega Fortune, the prequel to Mega Fortune Dreams. It was in the follow-up game, Mega Fortune Dreams, that a 30-year-old player deposited £20 and scooped a multi-million-pound jackpot with a £1 spin. When it comes to creating winners, Casumo isn’t shy about touting its strong track record, and naturally so. What’s the point in paying out a big win if you can’t tell the world about it?
