Two visitors to the Holland Casino in Eindhoven won the jackpot on Saturday night. During a game at the so-called Mega Millions machine, the duo won more than 1.4 million euros tax-free.
One of the two winners doubted beforehand whether they should still play on the Mega Millions machine. Because the jackpot doesn't fall, he thought, according to the casino.
The men from Sint-Michielsgestel and Schijndel can distribute a total of 1,415,158 euros. They do not yet know what they will do with that amount.
Gamblers who participate in the Mega Millions game have a chance of winning the jackpot if they play with the maximum bet of 5 euros. That jackpot of at least 1 million euros will increase as long as there is no winner.
The prize fell earlier this year in Holland Casinos in Utrecht (almost 2 million), Valkenburg (more than 1 million) and Breda (1.3 million).
