Early yesterday morning, security officers at a London Airport confiscated 1.2 million euros in cash from a 21-year-old man.
On the flight LH442 from London to Costa Rica there was a young man who appeared to be hiding something. After careful investigation, it was revealed that he was covered with money from head to toe!
Since it looked like he might be smuggling, the security officers confiscated the cash and interviewed the man in collaboration with the police.
But that’s not the end of the story…
It soon became clear that the accused, Christian Neilson (21) was completely innocent. The source of the money was entirely legal.
Christian just so happened to have won the jackpot in "LeoVegas Online Casino" a few weeks ago. He wanted to bring the money to Costa Rica for a well-deserved retirement.
"I was just sick of my job and ready to get out. I didn't know how else to get the money to Costa Rica so carrying it with me seemed like the best solution."
"I had no idea that it was forbidden to take this much money with me, I have never sat in a plane before and figured I could do whatever I wanted with it!"
Despite missing his flight and having to pay a small fine for failing to register his money, Christian remains incredibly happy. In the end, he got all his money back, and now nothing stands in his way of moving.
As far as how he managed to hit the jackpot, he only said this:
"I'd honestly never played in a casino before. I saw an ad online for 100 free spins as a welcome bonus so I decided to try my luck!“
And then the incomprehensible happened. Christian actually cracked the "Mega Moolah Jackpot" and won 1.2 million euros!
After this story made the rounds in our editorial office, a lot of us also signed up to try our luck.
We asked our reporter, Vincent Steinhauer, to redeem the 100 spins welcome bonus to see if he could actually make a profit.
And he did!
"I've never gambled with so much money before as after just two hours of playing at LeoVegas Casino I've already won 1,507 Euros!"
Although not as much as Christian himself, he can at least now enjoy a nice summer holiday!
