Fort Knox hands out a 21st birthday gift: 249,048 euros!

A casino guest has won €249,048.70 at Casino Baden on his 21st birthday. This is the second time this year that Austria’s highest-dollar slot machine jackpot has yielded the jackpot prize.

Our casinos see plenty of birthday celebrations throughout the year, and with the extensive range of games there are plenty of opportunities for guests to treat themselves to a present. That’s in addition to the excellent cuisine, special ambience, and all the fun and excitement to be had. It’s a great way to celebrate, especially when – as happened in this case – after just a few minutes of playing the Fort Knox machine and betting just one euro, the display announced that the jackpot has been won.

This is what happened last Friday to a young man who was celebrating his 21st birthday with his parents at Casino Baden. As soon as he had taken a seat in front of the vending machine and all the lights were flashing, he quickly called his parents over. After a few moments of incredulous amazement, they confirmed what had just happened. Lady Luck had treated the young man to a birthday present of exactly 249,048.70 euros. Of course this was followed by an extensive celebration and toasted with champagne and cocktails to round off what is sure to be an unforgettable birthday.

Prizes of this size are always good to win, but in the case of the young visitor, it has come at exactly the right time. He is set to complete his basic military service soon, and now he faces the start of an already well-planned professional life. This prize will help this lucky young man on his way to independence. Casinos Austria congratulates him and wishes him all the best!

This Fort Knox Jackpot grand prize is the second to be won in 2023. The previous one was won at Casino Velden in March. 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.
