As the old saying goes, history often has a way of repeating itself. And that’s exactly what happened when a Scandinavian player from Sweden recently won an amazing €5,623,777 progressive jackpot while playing the Mega Fortune slot machine online less than two years after a Scandinavian player from Finland accomplished the same feat netting a record €17,861,813.
The latest jackpot of €5,623,777 was won at LeoVegas, which is a popular online casino that also offers a fantastic selection of mobile games. The lucky winner was playing the Mega Fortune video slot on his iPad, which oddly enough he had won from the same site in one of their past promotions. After placing a modest wager of about €1.35, the player was shocked to see his screen light up and it actually took him a few moments to realize that he had won the progressive jackpot.
While the jackpot winner has elected to remain anonymous, it’s safe to say that his life will be forever changed as a result of winning one of the largest progressive jackpots in the history of online gambling. However, since he has already won two great prizes from the same site, it wouldn’t surprise us in the least to hear another story about this player winning another great prize in the future.
