What does it feel like to wager 50 cents and reap a reward of five and a half million dollars? The question was answered this week in a follow-up story to the gigantic win of a Finnish player at the Blackjack Ballroom.com online casino site earlier this year .
 
Online gambler Klaus E. from Finland made that 50 cent bet, and one click and 3 seconds later, the reels aligned, the

screen lit up, the bells rang out… and Klaus E was $5.5 million richer! In an interview with Casino Rewards, the group behind BlackjackBallroom.com, Klaus revealed his reactions and emotions when the big hit took place.
 
"When I saw 5 556 753 flash on my computer screen I thought it was a US phone number," the super-lucky Finn recalled this week.  "It couldn't be a jackpot, I must be mistaken! So I just got up from my table, went outside to clear my head, and then came back in again for another look… and noticed $5.5 million sitting in my casino account!"
 
Klaus soon realised it was no mistake, and certainly no telephone number – he had just made online gambling history as the winner of one of the biggest jackpot payouts ever!
 
"I got a phone call from Casino Rewards support who were very reassuring and helpful, and the next thing I knew I was on a plane to Australia to pick up my winning check!" he continues. "In Sydney, the Casino Rewards team took me to the wildlife park, the aquarium and a restaurant by the Opera House. The highlight of my trip? Apart from collecting my enormous check, it was having my photo taken with a koala bear!"
 
Whilst most jackpot winners choose to splash out on flashy sports cars, mansions and expensive designer labels, sensible Klaus has chosen a wiser option for his cash:
 
"I don't want any sports cars, as I don't even have a driving license, but maybe I'll invest. Oh, and some holidays too!"
