Turku, Finland 22 April, 2008 -- BlackjackBallroom.com has made a VERY lucky player an incredible $5,556,753.68 richer.
Klaus E., from Finland became an instant millionaire last Friday when he placed a $0.50 bet on the Mega-Moolah Progressive Slot Machine and walked away $5.5 million dollars richer. He couldn't believe that he had won and says he was stunned and shocked and "my hands were shaking!" He hopes to pay off his apartment and go on a vacation as the first of many things he can do with his huge online casino win.
A CasinoRewards representative has said, "Klaus has just become part of an elite community of online casino players who have 'hit it big' and joined the exclusive CasinoRewards Millionaires' Club. We congratulate him on his win and look forward to joining him in his celebrations."
Blackjack Ballroom online casino is a proud partner of the long established CasinoRewards group, who has been in operation since September, 2000 and has many popular online casinos under its loyalty program. CasinoRewards.com is part of the Microgaming community and this jackpot win has been the biggest for both established groups. Klaus has become the 4th Member of the CasinoRewards Millionaires' club, and brought the total progressives wins across the CasinoRewards Network to over $27 Million Dollars!
Roger Raatgever, CEO, Microgaming, says, "Those that say thirteen is an unlucky number have only to take one look at Klaus E. who not only becomes the Microgaming Progressive Jackpot's thirteenth millionaire, but by far and away the biggest jackpot winner we've ever had. Mega-Moolah has been tantalising players for months now and its finally delivered on a massive scale - with $5,556,753.68 being one of the largest payouts this industry has ever seen."
Arrangements are currently being made to fly Klaus to Sydney, Australia where he will be presented with a check of his winnings and celebrate what is the biggest win in Blackjack Ballroom's history. His win proves that when luck strikes, it hits hard and you don't have to play big to win big!

$5.5m jackpot winner travels to Australia to collect enormous payout
"After hitting the $5.5 million Mega Moolah jackpot at Blackjack Ballroom, of course I was skeptical and had many concerns whether I would be paid my winnings. Then I got a phone call from the helpful people at Casino Rewards, and the next thing I knew I was on a plane to Australia!"
These are the words of Klaus E. who won the life-changing jackpot last month from a $0.50 bet at popular online casino BlackjackBallroom.com. Thanks to the 1 hour free-play and $500 sign up bonus, new players such as Klaus can try their hand at far more than just online blackjack, with over 250 games including progressive jackpots, table games, slots and card games catering for beginner and advanced alike.
In the online casino industry, one of the biggest concerns for new players is the authenticity of jackpots and payouts, especially when the jackpots run in to millions of dollars. The progressive jackpot Mega Moolah at Blackjack Ballroom for instance, never drops below $1m and is currently sitting at close to a cool $3.1m. However, personal contact with the people behind the online casinos, be it through Casino Rewards' superior 24/7 support center, or as in Klaus' case, through face-to-face contact with the staff, serves to bring much needed credence and recognition to the industry.
"When I arrived in Sydney, I met the team from Casino Rewards and they took me to the zoo, the aquarium and a restaurant by the Sydney Opera House. The highlight of my trip? Apart from collecting my winning check, it was having my photo taken with a koala!"
The online casinos operated by CasinoRewards.com have won awards for their support and efficiency, and are verified to confirm their generous payout rates. Casino Rewards is part of the Microgaming community and this jackpot win has been the biggest for both established groups. Klaus has become the 4th Member of the CasinoRewards Millionaires' club, and brought the total progressives wins across the CasinoRewards Network to over $27 Million Dollars!
"I won $5.5 million from a 50 cent bet at Blackjack Ballroom!... and now I'm in Australia, drinking champagne with them!" - Klaus with the final word on why online gambling at Casino Rewards has never been so attractive.
$5.5 million from 50 cents?! Is this the luckiest man online?
When Klaus E. from Finland made a 50 cent bet at popular online casino BlackjackBallroom.com, little did he know that his life was about to change forever!
One click and 3 seconds later, the reels aligned, the screen lit up, the bells rang out... and Klaus E was $5.5 million richer! In an interview with CasinoRewards, the group behind BlackjackBallroom.com, Klaus revealed the moments after hitting the gigantic jackpot:
"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!"
Klaus soon realized it was no mistake, and certainly no telephone number! He had just made online gambling history as winner of one of the biggest jackpot payouts ever!
"As soon as I got a phone call from CasinoRewards support, I knew it was no joke. They were very helpful and set about arranging flights for my fiancé and I to go to Australia to pick up my winning check... and maybe even meet a koala! I was very excited about this" - Down-to-earth Klaus showing that picking up a seven-figure check can actually rank up there with the simpler things in life such as going to an Australian wildlife park!
Whilst most jackpot winners choose to splash out on flashy sports cars, mansions and expensive designer labels, sensible Klaus has chosen a wiser option for his cash:
"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!"
