(ADW) The saying “lightning never strikes twice in the same place”, could be applied to many things in life including big money wins. But this was not the case for one Luxembourger who won a major jackpot not once, but twice within the space of a week at Casino 2000 in Mondorf-les-Bains.
It was on May 27 when a Luxembourger in his fifties, got lucky at the casino while playing one of the many slot machines as it spewed out winnings of no less than 203,800 euros to the delighted player.
Just one week later on Saturday June 4, the man decided to return to Casino 2000 to celebrate his winnings and while he was there, slide a few more coins in the slot machines.
To his amazement, he won again, only this time nearly double his previous win. The lucky man managed to take home a whopping 460,638 euros.
His two wins together makes up a very impressive figure of 664,438 euros.
This time to celebrate his astonishing wins, a balthazar of champagne (12 litres) was cracked open.
As a one-off win, the man's 460,638 euro jackpot is actually the third biggest win of all time for Casino 2000. The biggest win was in 2007 when one lucky customer struck gold with 1,638,299 euros, and in 2011 no less than 686,384 euros was won in one go.
Casino 2000 themselves plan to celebrate this month's major win with a special party event that will take place on June 12 in Mondorf-les-Bains.
