Player Wins Over €2 Million at Guts Online CasinoPublished May 1, 2015 by Elana K
A Swedish player won over €2 million at Guts Casino when she hit the progressive jackpot in the NetEnt slot game, Arabian Nights.
The online casino Guts has created its first millionaire. It happened last week, on April 23, when Swedish player Monica hit the progressive jackpot while playing the game Arabian Nights, and took home €2,633,052.
Interestingly, Monica did not even realize she had hit the jackpot; she played a few more rounds and went to bed. Monica only realized she won big when she received a congratulatory phone call from the team at Guts the next day, who seemed equally as excited as the new millionaire.
Managing Director of Guts, Robin Reed, commented, “This is truly a remarkable day. We love to celebrate winners at Guts, this is the largest win we have ever had the pleasure of celebrating. We are so happy for Monica who has been playing at Guts since the start and we look forward to making more millionaires in the future. Well done Monica!”
Monica said that she will use her winnings to pay off her home loan, help her children and grandchildren, travel and donate to charity. All worthwhile endeavors!
Arabian Nights is a NetEnt progressive jackpot that is set in the medieval Arabian world. There are 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines, and symbols include camels, a hat with tassels, a tent, pointy shoes and a knife. Features include a wild symbol (an Arabian Knight) that triggers the jackpot and also acts as a multiplier, and a scatter symbol (a genie!) that grants free spins and bonus multipliers.
The progressive jackpot is what made Monica a millionaire overnight, and it is the real attraction of the game. Every time a player places a bet (at any online casino that offers the game), a portion of the bet goes to a prize pool, which is how the jackpot gets so big.
