This is anything but the first time that this jackpot has been released, because in May of last year a man from the Eindhoven area also won no less than 2.7 million dollars with the same jackpot, while the highest amount was won with the Mega Millions Jackpot in 2015: the prize was then also handed out in Utrecht. Then it was even 3.6 million! And now let’s party again with this infamous jackpot, this time in Valkenburg!
Cool prize of 1.06 million dollars
The winner was a lucky Belgian from the Walloon city of Liège. He played his eighth round on the slot machine, where a bet of 5 dollars can be placed as a maximum bet. Players can choose to play with a lower stake, but then they also have less chance of winning a higher jackpot. The win of the Belgian comes barely a month after the win in Utrecht. Marcel Knols, the manager of the Holland Casino branch in Valkenburg, says it is “great that they can offer one of the guests such an evening and a new future”. After the price fell, the Mega Millions Jackpot immediately restarted with an amount of 1 million dollars. That also happened the last time in Utrecht and then it happened again a few weeks later. Would it work again after a few weeks?
According to Holland Casino, the man immediately indicated that he wanted to quit his job. And while we don’t know anything else about the man’s identity, we can’t blame him, of course. We do think it is crucial to allow the jackpot win to sink in just as well and especially not to get too excited after a financial hit like this. Because life after winning a big jackpot isn’t all luck and prosperity. As the winner, you will also have to take into account a lot of new responsibilities. Curious what those are? We explain it on our jackpots page, where we also tell you more about life after winning the jackpot.
