Gambler wins $5.5 million at online casino
One lucky online gambler from Finland has won $5.5 million from just a 50 cent bet at Blackjackballroom.com.
Klaus E was playing the slots when he won the life-changing amount of money. However, it took him a while for the reality to hit home.
"When I saw 5,556,753 flash on my screen, I thought it was a US phone number. It couldn't be a jackpot, I must be mistaken. So I just got up from my table, went outside to clear my head, and then came back in again for another look ... and noticed $5.5 million sitting in my casino account,” he told Casino Rewards, the company behind Blackjackballroom, in an interview.
Despite the massive win, Klaus is keeping his feet firmly on the ground and will be spending his money relatively prudently.
"I don't want any sports cars, as I don't even have a driving license, but maybe I'll invest. Oh, and some holidays too!”
