Fort Knox jackpot won in Casino Velden - Player from Upper Carinthia wins 275,269.06 euros

"You just have to know how to push the buttons!": a player from Upper Carinthia found the right combination to win the Fort Knox jackpot – worth 275,269.06 euros – at 4 p.m. yesterday.

On Wednesday afternoon, the man and his partner spontaneously decided to pay the casino in Velden a visit. At first he thought he had won 275 euros at the Fort Knox machine, but then it dawned on him that it was actually over 275,000 euros. He could hardly believe his luck at first. His initial, apt reaction once he was able to form a sentence: “You just have to know how to push the buttons!”

Together with Casino Director Marion Roseneder, they immediately toasted the happy occasion. The lucky man already has plans for his surprise windfall. A relaxing wellness holiday – their dog will also be allowed – and an upcoming house renovation. They can now make the decision whether to use a heat pump, an air pump or a photovoltaic system much more easily.

This Fort Knox win is the fourth this year. The 90 Fort Knox machines in the twelve casinos are connected to each other throughout Austria and are restocked with 200,000 euros after each jackpot win. No other Fort Knox machine in the world offers such a high prize payout. The minimum stake is a mere 75 cents.
