Lad Slays Online Slots By Winning £4.4m Jackpot While Playing On His iPad
There are three things that immediately spring to mind when thinking about Sweden: beautiful blondes, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Ikea. Well, there are probably more than three: meatballs might be worth a mention too.
Oh, and the Swedes' seemingly inherent ability to absolutely boss it when it comes to playing online slots.
If you're looking for proof, last year, not one, but two Scandinavian guys won breath-taking, knee-trembling amounts of cash on the old online fruit machines.
One of them even bagged the single largest jackpot victory ever on a mobile device, raking in a colossal £4.4million, which will get you about one million Kopparbergs at my local. I'm not fussy though mate, any cheap European lager will do for me...
The slots have been taking a battering.
Yep, that's almost four-and-a-half million quid. Playing slots on his iPad. Sat on the sofa. Possibly while wearing only pants. That's what you call kicking the house right in the bollocks.

The lucky lad in question - known only as Stefan, probably like 'Beyonce' or 'Rihanna' now he's loaded - scooped the Mega Fortune jackpot like it was nothing.
A compatriot of Stefan's also gave the online slots a decent shot in the particulars in 2015 by scooping £570,407. The 49-year-old was playing Siberian Storm - Mega Jackpot, which sounds a bit like a KGB plot Vladimir Putin might scream at one of his henchmen, while shirtless on horseback and firing a shotgun, naturally.
Big money (not literally this big) to be won.
But, rather than blow it all on sugary cider hangovers and Swedish massages like I might (if you're reading this mum, that was a joke, please don't kick me out), the warm-hearted grandad decided to use it to set his family up for a bright future, and even give a chunk to charity.
"I've always wanted to start my own business so some of the money will go towards that, largely as I want something besides money to leave to my grandchildren," he said.
"I also want to start giving back and plan to donate a large portion of the money to several charities that I feel are in need."
