On a flying visit to Carinthia, 258,000-euro Fort Knox jackpot was won at Casino Velden

On Saturday evening, a casino guest scored the first jackpot of the year on Austria’s highest-paying slot machine.

It’s not uncommon for visitors to Carinthia to be drawn to the Casino Velden. A prime location on the lake, a first-class range of games, excellent cuisine and the best service, these factors all speak for themselves – but the fact that a casino visitor managed to score the Fort Knox jackpot on his first attempt at playing the machines is a real sensation.

He spends a lot of time travelling abroad, and this was supposed to be a relaxing, fun casino outing with the family. For the first time, he chose to play the slot machines, just so he would have at least tried this out once, after roulette and poker. This little lark turned out to lead to a bull’s eye, as the fifth of five free spins won him the main prize in Austria’s highest-paying slot jackpot, the Fort Knox. The winnings amount to exactly 258,067.98 euros and will be a welcome boost to this globetrotter on his travels.

This Fort Knox Jackpot grand prize is the first to be won in 2023. In the previous year, the jackpot was won a total of ten times. The 90 Fort Knox machines offer Casinos Austria’s guests a unique slot gaming experience. They are connected to each other in twelve casinos throughout Austria and are restocked with 200,000 euros after each jackpot win. The minimum stake is a mere 75 cents.
