A very lucky woman from Småland, Sweden landed a 5.3 Million Euro jackpot while playing Mega Fortune slot machine in one of country’s online casinos. The winner has given a short interview and said: “It is difficult to see how much money it is, but I’ll take one day at a time and digest it all. I will buy a house and ensure that my family and loved ones are well off, and donate some to a good purpose.” There is no information available as to whether the online casino in Sweden used by the winner was under the control of the Gambling Monopoly, Svenska Spel.
Svenska Spel, the state-run Company, currently enjoys a monopoly on all gambling activities in the country including casinos, game machines, sports betting, poker games, and lotteries. A growing criticism from the EU and its constituent nations towards this situation makes Swedish government think about changing Swedish gambling laws to break up Svenska Spel and open up the market to foreign companies. Svenska Spel is also allowed to provide online gambling since 2002.
