Congratulations for winning $6,500 on the Fruit Fiesta progressive jackpot.
“Thanks. That was the best $0.75 investment I’ve ever made!”
You also hold the distinction of being the first Russian player to win a progressive jackpot within the Microgaming group of casinos - the leading gaming network on the Internet.
“It couldn’t have happened to a nicer and more deserving guy [laughing]. I’m honored and lucky to hold this distinction. I’d also like to be the first Russian player to win two progressive jackpots, so I’ll keep trying. Particularly since I now know it’s a possibility.”
Did you realize that Microgaming never took Russian bets over the Internet before they opened the Goldfishka online casino?
“Yes, I knew that, since I was never able to register on any of Microgaming’s other online casinos. We’re lucky that Microgaming finally decided to offer its world-class software through Goldfishka, which really sets it apart from the other Russian online casinos.”
Tell us a bit about yourself.
“I am a scientist, not really a gambler. I like to play sometimes, since Moscow has many interesting land-based casinos. I visit them on occasion, but I’ve never won nearly as much as I did with that one spin at the Goldfishka online casino.”
What do you do in your spare time?
“I don’t have to much spare time. But if there’s a spare hour I like to play online in a good reputable casino.”
So, should we assume that Goldfishka is your favorite casino?
“Absolutely, 100% percent! Where else can you get the excitement of a land-based casino in the comfort of your home? Other online casinos try to compete, but Goldfishka is truly unique among them, with such wonderful customer service, warm atmosphere and wide game selection.”
What did you do when you realized you'd hit the jackpot?
“Honestly, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I thought I was dreaming, but there it was, 5 fruit fiestas in a row. No disputing it - I hit the jackpot. I called my friends and no one believed me.”
Do you think that people, particularly Russian players, are cynical about winning a progressive jackpot?
“I would say yes. Everyone thinks it’s only possible to lose at a casino, not win. Big progressive jackpots are generally perceived as ‘marketing gimmicks’ to get people to spend more money. Well, at Goldfishka, that’s not the case. I’m living proof!”
How long were you playing before you hit the jackpot?
“I’ve been playing at Goldfishka online casino for more that 8 months, having tried a wide range of different games, most of them I liked very much. Since Goldfishka is part of the world-famous Microgaming group of casinos, none of Goldfishka’s competitors in Russia are able to provide a better or more entertaining gaming experience.”
What would you recommend to other online and land-based gamblers?
“If you’re looking for an entertaining experience, with the chance to make good money, try your luck at Goldfishka online casino. It worked for me.”
How will you spend your winnings?
“I will take a long-deserved holiday in Turkey and celebrate my winning, so long as they have Internet access to that I can play at Goldfishka.”
Describe in detail your dream holiday destination.
“I have been traveling quite a lot in Europe, South-East Asia. I would like to go to USA and South America. I have many friends in USA. In South America I was going to visit their rivers, but unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to do it.”
