Betsson casino big winnerWinning, no matter how or when, is an exciting occurrence. There’s not much better than being able to gather your friends and family to tell them the good news – that you’re a big winner!

Halvor from Oslo, Norway, who had just celebrated his 27th birthday before becoming Betsson’s big winner, had that exact experience. The weather in Oslo, Norway can make communication a bit of a battle at times, but we’re sure that Halvor was ecstatic, no matter how bad the telephone line may have been. 

On the 11th of January 2016, Betsson contacted Halvor and informed him that he was the lucky €100,000 (or 1,000,000 NOK) New Year’s Lottery winner! There’s no better way to start the year!

A win on a whim

Not a regular player of the popular New Year’s Lottery, Halvor decided to play on a whim as a bit of fun. And lucky for him that he did so! Naturally, the lucky punter was looking forward to sharing the news with his loved ones, but most of all his grandmother.

He commented saying: “I live in a big apartment building and I’m waiting for family members to come home so I can tell them the big news. I can’t wait to tell my grandma. She will be the first to know.”

Already a fan of Betsson Casino, Halvor is definitely even more impressed now. Speaking to a Betsson representative, Halvor said, “You have a lot of great games in the casino, but I like Gonzo’s Quest the most because it’s fast and exciting. I would like to say big thanks to everyone at Betsson. You’ve made me really happy.”

Plans for the cash

Halvor has already decided how he would like to spend his winnings. “Now that the money is in my account I’ve started to make some plans,” Halvor said. “Firstly I will invest in a big apartment project so a lot of money will go towards that, then I have plans to go to Spain later this year and watch El Clasico in Madrid. I’m not sure but it also looks like I will continue further south down to Morocco.”
