he players – ages 24 and 25 – were playing French Fortune eMillions at Casino Cosmopol in Stockholm when they triggered the jackpot at 3:10 p.m. on Sunday, June 28.
Once the overwhelmed winners finished their celebratory dance through the casino they were taken to the casino’s VIP area to have a quiet drink and come to grips with what had just happened. They immediately started planning what to do with the money and weren’t short of ideas. Eventually though they postponed all planning, took 815 euros of their prize to celebrate their win and ventured out into the Stockholm nightlife to celebrate their fortune.
eMillions gives every player a chance to become a millionaire.
