Greek gambling news were proud to report that Christmas came early for their fellow countryman.
Bwin announced that a record Gold Mega Jackpot hit was hit on their Greek online casino this week.
The record jackpot was won by a Greek hairdresser named “Charalampos T”. According to Bwin, the lucky punter turned his initial wager of 20 Euro cents into EUR 826.127.00 playing the Dragon’s Hoard online slot game.
The mega jackpot won from just a EUR 0.20 bet corresponds to 413,000 times return on his initial investment, making the win to be one of the highest percentage payout of all times.
Charalampos T commented the news understandingly happily, saying: “I cannot describe my joy since I realized that I have won! Initially I found it difficult to believe that all this is real and the money is all mine! But it is true! Thank you very much bwin!”
Charalampos spoke on his plans for the near future: “I will buy a house, I will pay some debts of mine and then I will try to make a long trip.”
A bwin casino spokesman confirmed: “To win over Euro 800,000 from just a 20 cent spin is mind blowing. You could say that Charalampos T got his prize for just a snip and has given us a full cut, wash and blow dry with his win!”
The bwin spokesman added: “This is certainly one of the biggest wins on bwin casino in recent years, perhaps we need to change the name of the game from Dragon’s Hoard to ‘Charalampos’ Hoard!?”
It is not known if the lucky winner has to pay any taxes required by the Greek gambling laws.
