Four winners in Velden, three in Bregenz, and one each in Kleinwalsertal and Linz: this series of high scorers on Fort Knox machines stretches all the way across Austria and doesn't appear to be letting up. An incredible total of nine guests have already won over 200,000 euros this year. A retiree from the region of Carinthia rounded off the winning quartet at Casino Velden this past Saturday with a prize of 207,199.83 euros.
And of course he's already made plans how to spend is princely sum: he'll be travelling throughout the remaining autumn months, and since it is such a tidy sum, there'll still be enough left over to bestow plenty of presents on his family.
This big win is the ninth this year on Austria's highest-paying slot jackpot and the fourth at Casino Velden. 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.
