A player in the UK found NetEnt's Mega Fortune™ slot to be true to name when he hit a €2,553,604.67 jackpot while playing the progressive video slot at SlotsMillion Casino. The player, who only signed up at the mega-casino a few days prior, wishes to remain anonymous. All of his stars were aligned, as were the concentric wheels on the bonus game when the jackpot fell at 20:03 GMT on 23 January 2018.
Mega Fortune Has Set World Records
The 5-reel, 25 pay line game reseeds at €250,000 and has already grown to €632,456 in just a week. That's really no surprise after looking at the numbers, it is a very popular game. The jackpot is also fed by players at many different NetEnt casinos so it grows quickly. Casino Listings has been tracking it since June 2009 and it goes off about every ten weeks for an average win of €4,125,565. The most the game has ever given up in a single spin was €17.8 million when a player from Finland got a chance to play the wheel. That win can be found in the Guinness Book of World Records. The game broke a world record for mobile play in 2015, with a jackpot of €8.6 million.
First NetEnt Multi-Million Winner of 2018
The UK player was not only SlotsMillion's first progressive jackpot millionaire, his win was also NetEnt's first multi-million euro jackpot of 2018 after paying out over €75 million last year.
A Life-Changing Moment
NetEnt Chief Product Officer, Henrik Fagerlund said: "What a great start to the year it’s been for the lucky winner and we’re so pleased that we’ve been able to play a part in his life-changing moment.
"Mega Fortune is a long-time favourite with NetEnt players, so it’s no surprise to see it claim the first winner of 2018 and we hope it continues to be a lucky year for everyone who has a spin!"
