Irish Winner Hits the Stars – Big Winner at Genesis Casino!

Irish Winner Hits the Stars - Big Winner at Genesis Casino!
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Luck of the Irish rocks the galaxy with a €10,500 win!

One lucky winner from Ireland has landed in space with a massive €10,533.41 on Microgaming’s Cash Splash – 5 Reel. The win, triggered from a mere €3 wager, sent shockwaves throughout the universe!

Microgaming’s first foray in the Cash Splash series had yielded a fun slot across three-reels. It went on to become one of their most famous games, so why not make it even more enjoyable with a five-reel version? Despite being packed with Bonus features such as Wilds, Scatters offering fiery multipliers up to 250x your wager, and a Progressive Jackpot, the game is not known for its massive RTP. Nonetheless, it was big enough to send a meteor shower of cash straight into our lucky winner’s account who’s spilled the space-beans on this astronomic experience.

Reach for the stars and let their light shine on your reeling fun!

Expectant mother, Michelle, was in the hospital waiting room ahead of a routine check-up. “I had just woken up, I was sitting at the hospital feeling really bored.” Minutes and spins went by before she finally hit the winning combination. “I couldn’t believe my eyes,” she tells us, “suddenly my screen lit up and I realised I had won a big sum.”
Did she ever dream of winning big? “I never ever thought I would score a win of this size. I usually don’t bet that much per spin,” says Michelle, “but I gave it a try and landed a nice win just after a few spins. I haven’t told anybody about it yet – up until now, it was still my little secret!”
Michelle plans on using her newly-won cash on a little getaway after the birth of her baby, but she’ll also spend some of it on Christmas presents for her family and friends.

Star formation in the Genesis sky just before Michelle give birth to a star of her own!

Michelle is a relatively new player at Genesis Casino. Her experience in orbit is, in her own words, “no more than a couple of weeks. I was online and I think I saw Genesis Casino on Facebook or some other social media, so I decided to give it a shot.”
There’s a galaxy of choice at Genesis Casino – players can try their hands at over 1300 games, from video slots, to table games, scratch-cards, live casino and a nice selection of jackpots which includes the interstellar Cash Splash itself. There’s something for everybody at Genesis and you never know, the stars could conspire to turn you into the next big winner!

The police arrested 12 persons for allegedly kidnapping an American businessman in Costa Rica. The persons were arrested in Costa Rica and Spain.

The assailants kidnapped William Sean Creighton Kopko, the owner of 5Dimes, an online gambling platform, on September 24 in Costa Rica.

Kopko’s family agreed to pay the ransom of the Bitcoin equivalent of $950,800 after his kidnappers made several calls threatening to kill him.

But once the payment was made, the kidnappers stopped communicating with Kopko’s family and he is still missing.

After the kidnapping members of the gang fled to Cuba, the Civil Guard statement said. On November 9, Costa Rica informed the Civil Guard that three suspects had left Cuba and entered Spain through the Madrid-Barajas airport. The suspects who travelled to Spain were arrested after they rented a house in the city of Zaragoza, according to the news release.

Video from Costa Rican investigators shows authorities raiding a house on Friday in Costa Rica. That raid lead to the arrest of nine others allegedly involved in the kidnapping scheme.

The US State Department has not posted any travel advisories regarding Costa Rica, but there is a warning on its website that crime “is increasing in Costa Rica and U.S. citizens are frequent victims.”

American Carla Stefaniak was found dead after she went missing in Costa Rica in November. A security guard at the Airbnb where Stefaniak was staying was arrested and is a suspect in her killing.
