Here’s How, On A 0.50 Bet, Ann Walked Away With Over 100 Thousand In CashSeptember 2nd, 2015
Here’s a story to shut up all the jackpot casino games nay-sayers: it is possible to win a progressive jackpot, and you don’t have to bet the house to do it.
Look, we’d be the first to say that we’ve never won a progressive jackpot.
If everyone won, then they wouldn’t be special.
That said, there’s something about a big winner casino story that reminds you that not only does it happen, but it can happen to the best, more deserving people.
We would like to introduce you to Ann-Kristin, an assistant nurse from Sandviken Sweden, who won a life changing amount, on the smallest of bets at one our favourite mobile casinos Leo Vegas.
How much did she win on Cosmic Fortune exactly?
Technically, technically, Ann-Kristin is now a millionaire.

But that’s only because the Swedish SEK currency is, frankly, ridiculous. Or at least for us living in the rest of the world.
She won 1,352,603 SEK. That’s over 1.3 million, if you’re eyes are going cross eyed at all the numbers.
Let’s translate that into a currency that’s a little more down to earth, shall we?
Now if we got a 100 grand in the bank, we’d be over the moon. For some of you out there, this might be short change.
For Ann-Kristin, it was the best day of her life. It meant clearing her debt, and a stress free life.
“It just felt unbelievable. I had to take some extra breaths because I was on my way to getting a heart attack. The world stood still and I couldn’t think straight. I’ve had so much debts and trouble in life, and to receive such a big amount of money… I just can’t describe it. It is impossible.” she said.
She won that on just a… 0.50 bet? Really?
Technically, technically, she won that on a 6 SEK bet.
You see where we are going with this right?
- 0.46 GBP
- 0.63 EUR
- 1 AUD
- 0.71 USD
You can’t say that’s not impressive.
By our calculation that’s a 225,710 times your bet win. Give or take a few currencies.
The biggest we’ve ever won is about 4 thousand times our bet. Never mind 225 thousand!
You only get those kind of numbers playing on a jackpot slot.
“When I told [my boyfriend] about it, he just laughed and did not believe me. He yelled: “Are you a millionaire?!??!?”” laughed Ann.
Talking of which… tell me more about Cosmic Fortune?
NetEnt’s Cosmic Fortune slot is not Ann-Kristin usual online casino game of choice, but she was no stranger to it’s cosmic draw.
“I usually prefer Gonzo’s Quest because it’s fun, but sometimes I go in and play Cosmic Fortune. Well, of course, it is now one my top favourites!” Said the winner.
A desktop online slot only, the Cosmic Fortune jackpot slot has had a difficult history.

Namely, because when it first came out, the progressive jackpots kept hitting all the time – a genuine mistake on the part of NetEnt, which they admitted to.
The progressives couldn’t climb much higher than a few tens here and there, making players feel like the jackpots were worthless.
Of course, once they fixed it, people complained that the four progressive jackpots now didn’t hit often enough!
Which is actually absurd as it hits more often than most still, and is much fairer in it’s distribution.
A great NetEnt jackpot casino game to discover
With a fun retro pinball theme, and some decent features within the game itself, including free spins and a pin-ball mini-games, Cosmic Fortune is actually one of the fun NetEnt jackpot games.
It doesn’t reach the heights of Hall of Gods or Mega Fortune, but thats because it’s a little easier on the wallet and tends to like to hit for big and small players alike.
Which is unusual for a progressive jackpot slot, and something that should be celebrated.
So here we are celebrating.
What our winner will do with her winnings
An assistant nurse, Ann-Kristin may not have had the most luxurious of lives, but she certainly has a very kind heart.
Of course, clearing her debts, on her house and bills, will be at the top of the list.

But that still leaves plenty behind to spoil the people she loves.
“I will pay for my partner, my step-daughter and I to go to America. We have always talked about it, and finally we can really do it.”
That said, she hasn’t forgotten the people she spends the late shifts working with, caring for others every day of the week. She ordered 3 huge platters of food for the whole department of ladies.
“It is for the ladies they really deserve it! I worked late yesterday, but after that we went to the bar and celebrated with Irish coffee. It was cosy and still unbelievable.”
