The game was being played at PAF Casino and the casino reported that the man was playing at 25 cent per spin. They contacted him the following day to conform the win and to get a few comments. He reportedly stated “It was completely unreal. I laughed and cried all at once. Can this really be happening? I wondered.” He continued saying that he felt like he was dreaming and he had to get his girlfriend to calm him down. Anders Sims the head of PR at PAF Casino said that all Net Entertainment Casinos had been holding their breath as the jackpot continued to grow, knowing that it simply had to pay out at some stage. he was obviously thrilled that a PAF player had won the jackpot and that the huge amount would be paid out tax free directly into the players PAF account. Wow, that's going to be one nice cash out! PAF Casino have also advised that the man get a little financial advice as handling that amount can be difficult and it's always best to do the right things with a win that big.
