NetEnt’s Mega Fortune slot is one of the most widely played progressive jackpot slots in the world. Because of its huge player base, it has a pot that regularly spills over into the tens of millions, granting any player lucky enough to win it, life changing money.
The latest lucky winner of that huge jackpot was a Norwegian player in his 20s, who managed to bag himself €5m while playing the Mega Fortune slot over at Betsson. The player has decided to remain anonymous beyond simply his general age and country of origin, but some congratulations are in order for a huge win like that.
The €5m Mega Fortune Jackpot Win
The unnamed winner had just decided to play a few rounds before he went to bed, before becoming a surprise millionaire, that is! In fact, he was so taken aback by it, he only thought he’d won €4,900, simply because the final amount was so unbelievable.
Like most progressive jackpot winners, this recent winner has gone down a similar path of asking for anonymity. Many players like to keep it private when they win big money and this new millionaire said that he just wanted to “carry on as normal.” When asked what he would be doing with the money, he said his first priority was to build himself a house. We bet it’ll be a lavish one!
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, said: “Mega Fortune continues to be one of NetEnt’s best performing and most played games, and we’re over the moon that another jackpot has dropped. We’re looking forward to even more players enjoying the great gameplay and features in the future, and I’m sure it won’t be too long before the slot changes another life for the good.”
Bigger Progressive Jackpot Wins On The Horizon
As more people move to online gambling, the progressive jackpots only get bigger. Within the last 12 months alone, we’ve seen the biggest online progressive jackpot payout ever, with Microgaming’s Mega Moolah paying out £13,213,838.68 to British player, Jon Heywood. Mega Fortune Dreams, the sister slot of Mega Fortune had seen its own successful big payout only back in July, when it paid out €2,970,929 to a lucky Swedish player.
The more people who play progressive jackpots, the bigger their payouts become. With NetEnt slots like Mega Fortune having such a great track record, if they manage to stay at the top of the charts, we can only imagine how big the next jackpot from a NetEnt game might be.
