The expression ‘’Christmas has come early for…’’ is one of those slightly over-used ones that ends up not really meaning that much. Unless of course your name is Marcus Goodwin. If winning $11,633,898.44 in early November isn’t a case of ‘’Christmas has come early’’ then we really don’t know what is.
Marcus was playing Mega Moolah on the evening of the 5th November when the progressive Jackpot had reached $11 million. One spin later and there was no more Jackpot to be won. Because Marcus had won it.
Now for those not so used to English colloquialisms, it’s worth explaining that ‘moolah’ is a term sometimes used for ‘money’. They weren’t kidding when they decided to name that slot, by the sound of things.
Marcus was playing at YakoCasino.com, a new online casino launched in August 2015. Available in five languages; English, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian and German, YakoCasino offers endless jackpots, slots, and table games from Microgaming, Netent, Play’nGO, Evolution Gaming and NYX.
Nice chaps that they are over at YakoCasino, this is what Steven, Co-founder & CEO of YakoCasino had to say: "Everyone at YakoCasino is ecstatic for the player and we wish Marcus all the very best with this record breaking win!’
Of course, we were also very curious about what the man himself had to say. Would his Christmas budget now extend to a second box of post-dinner After Eights? Was he really going to push the boat out and buy his parents one of those sets of Japanese steak knives they used to advertise on late-night TV? We just had to ask. In his own words:
"Wow thank you so much! This is obviously life changing! I cannot believe it! I will definitely be buying a nice big house and a vacation cottage! And taking my entire family on a first class trip to Africa! This will mean great Christmas presents for everyone!"
And we here at All In Translations were as delighted as everyone else. YakoCasino are one of our most esteemed clients, to whom we offer our first class translation services. We like their style, such as the way they offer new players a match bonus of up €222/$333 on their first deposit along with 222 free spins. They also have several Christmas-themed promos coming up.

*We actually thought his dog looked pretty chilled; it didn’t look like it’s heart was still racing at all.
