A few days ago, #1 casino streamer Roshtein accomplished the win of a lifetime, achieving €1,000,000 on a single slot machine spin. More than just a jackpot, this big win represents a symbolic number for this lifetime gambler.
Lucky7Bonus takes a look back at this incredible moment, which is sure to remain engraved in the Swede's memory.
Book of Shadows, the ultra volatile "book" slot
The Book of Shadows slot from Nolimit City is where Roshtein has reached its holy grail. After the huge success of Book of Dead, now the most played slot in the world, online game developers started to create slots following this model. Book of Shadows takes the basics of a "book" slot, but adds the Nolimit City touch, huge volatility and incredible winning potential.
Popular among the bravest gamblers, Book of Shadows is one of the most played slots of the moment. Now responsible for a large number of winning records, the popularity of this slot is not expected to decrease in the coming weeks.
How Book of Shadows works
Although it belongs to the "Book" family of slots, Book of Shadows is quite an original slot machine. Its starting grid is composed of 5 reels of 3 rows and it is possible to add one or two rows by paying 1.5 and 2 times the base bet per spin respectively.
During the base game, the symbols need to be found on predefined paylines, while during the bonus game, the "Book" system comes into play.
A symbol is chosen randomly and when enough of it is obtained, it expands to occupy the entire reel.
Getting the chosen symbol at least once on each reel will fill the grid with that symbol. Of course, this will have to happen with the best symbol possible to get the famous 10,000 times the bet on a single spin.
For the lucky ones, it is possible to repeat this feat several times, and the maximum winning potential of the machine is 30,338 times the base bet. Getting 3 Scatters to retrigger with 10 extra free spins can be a big help.
The old world record desired by Roshtein
In November 2020, an anonymous player broke the world record for a slot machine win with a €1 million spin on the same Book of Shadows. The feat was brought to the attention of Roshtein and the Swedish streamer was quick to watch the replay of the bonus. Indeed, like other slot providers, Nolimit City has a feature that allows you to watch the biggest wins on their slot bonuses.
During one of his streams' "farm duel" session on Honey Rush and Reactoonz 2, Rosh starts the video recording of this incredible Book of Shadows bonus. As the tension builds over the free spins, a retrigger is quickly obtained, offering 10 extra free spins.
Roshtein then turns his attention to the replay, which now occupies his entire stream window, which is normally supposed to be showing the slot the Swede is playing on at the moment.
As a gambling enthusiast and although he was not the beneficiary of this incredible win, the Swede inevitably had an epic reaction to the world record.
Of course, with the bonus video on his stream and a candy store smile on his face, Roshtein was quickly mistaken for the player behind the record. Whether by viewers of YouTube videos or even those on his own stream. The Swedish gambler had to explain several times a day that he was not the lucky one in question.
A million euros on a single spin can make any online casino fan dream. One can imagine that this record must have been on Roshtein's mind for a few months, until he accomplished this feat himself.
Roshtein breaks his own record in the best way possible
The more years go by, the more impressive the sums wagered by online casino streamers become. Roshtein has seen his bets and therefore his biggest winnings increase over the years, as have many other gamblers. It's unclear how far this rise in play value will go, but one thing is for sure, record winnings continue to fall one after the other.
The Swede got his previous record on January 29, 2021 on the juicy Fruit Party. In a bonus with a value of €100 per spin, Roshtein reached the maximum multiplier on this slot machine, x5,000. That's an incredible win of €500,000, his absolute record at the time.
Less than 3 months later, the showman completely exploded this record by obtaining more than double his previous win.
Officially in the hunt for a million, Roshtein is going on a wild session with Book of Shadows. Indeed, it is not easy to get such an impressive win, as it is impossible to buy free spins with such a high stake, as bonus purchases are blocked after a certain amount on Nolimit City slots.
So you have to get a natural bonus through the base game in search of the books. Then you have to hope to get the Queen of Shadows symbol, being the only symbol able to multiply the bet by 10,000 on a single spin.
With these conditions in place, the tension automatically rises and each free spin where the female character symbol appears provides a real adrenaline rush.
Finally, the desired result is achieved. The 5 reels reveal the long-awaited symbol that expands to occupy the entire grid and makes Roshtein jump for joy: "I've got the million!
Roshtein's reaction and the insane continuation of the stream
Faced with a full screen that represents only one thing: €1,000,000, Roshtein raises his voice by shouting "we've got a million!", before his friend and streamer VonDice joins him to celebrate together.
We'll let you enjoy the video clip and the joy of the two gamblers:
With his incredible winnings and a now impressive balance, the Swede was not in the mood to switch slots. So naturally, he started having fun with the different features of Book of Shadows until he paid almost €7,000 per spin.
Indeed, in Book of Shadows it is possible to lock the different reels. Depending on the symbols inside the locked reel(s), the effective price of a spin can increase or decrease without impacting the value of the spin itself.
This is something that Roshtein used to do in order to decrease the cost of a spin with a value of €100, but here he preferred to do the opposite. And by locking in reels with premium symbols or scatters, the Swedish streamer ended up spinning the slot at a cost of €6,700 per spin.
This wasn't such a bad idea, as he got 2 wins of €50,000 on 2 consecutive spins! After huge winnings and a now 7-figure balance, he finally decided to give the slot machine a rest, at least for the time being...
