A man in his forties from Norway has won over 4.8 million Euro on the online gaming site Betsson, with a stake of just 5€.
The win is the largest payout in Betsson's history, and one of the largest in online gaming ever. One can imagine how difficult it must be to describe how it feels to win this stunning amount.
Marius Andersen, Betsson Norway Country Manager: "The jackpot has built up over a long time, and it is always nice when a normal customer becomes a Betsson millionaire. The prize is the largest single win we have ever paid out, and shows that it is possible to win big even with small stakes"
The gamer from Norway hit the jackpot after betting €5 on Betsson's Arabian Nights online game. Jackpots have grown significantly in recent years as the number of online gamers has increased, and online games are increasingly competing with the national lotteries to fulfil the Europeans' dreams of becoming millionaires.
