Entain’s Optibet Customer Hits €6.6 million Jackpot
One lucky customer of Entain’s Optibet, is today celebrating an historic €6.6 million win, the largest in the brand’s history. A 30-year-old Estonian player won the grand sum of exactly €6,597,136, having staked just €3.75 euros on the popular Mega Moolah game. Not only is the win a record for Optibet but it is also thought to be the largest ever win by an Estonian national.
In securing the win, the player beat odds of 1 in 185 million, and became the seventieth Mega Moolah jackpot winner since its inception in 2006. In that time, the slot has paid out jackpots ranging from €1 to 19.4 million, the latter being the world record for a slot game.
Commenting on his win, the Estonian player said:
"It's a huge surprise, I’m not a very frequent player! The first thing I am going to do is build my dream home!”
Optibet is in close contact with the player to ensure he receives independent financial advice and support on how to handle the life-changing win.
Optibet joined the Entain family of brands in March, having been acquired as part of the acquisition of Enlabs Ab. Optibet is a leading online betting and gaming brand focused on the Baltics region and operates under various local gaming licenses. The brand offers content richness and relevancy to a broad customer base.
