A 23-year-old woman won the Mega Millions Jackpot on Monday evening at Holland Casino in the Eindhoven location. The woman would have bet only 1 euro and went home with 75,000 euros. If she had wagered 5 euros, she would have won 1.7 million euros.
The woman spent her vacation in the Eindhoven region. Together with her boyfriend and parents-in-law, she decided to pay a visit to the Holland Casino, her first visit to a casino ever. And that first visit could hardly have been any better. The cash prize that the woman has won, no less than 75,000 euros, is tax-free.
Mega Millions history
It is not the first time that a Brabander wins a large amount of money in the casino, at a lottery or a game show. In 2019, it was also hit at the Holland Casino branch in Breda. A lucky Belgian also won 1.4 million euros on a gaming machine. And that on his first visit to the casino. In the same casino a few years earlier, a man from the Breda area won 1.7 million euros with the game Mega Millions.
