NetEnt Pays Record Mega Fortune Jackpot to German Online Casino
Recently, a Swedish player hit life-changing money by landing the Mega jackpot. It set a record for the operator offering the game while giving the player a healthy €2.6 million prize.
Swedish Player Wins €2.6 million Jackpot
Mega Fortune’s Mega jackpot hit on June 27 to give a Swedish player a payday of €2.6 million (AUD $4.27 million). The jackpot hit at Germany’s Svenska Spel Sport & Casino. The jackpot win shattered the previous record of just €238,000. Interestingly enough this previous record was hit a week earlier on the same game when a smaller progressive jackpot was triggered.
Chief Commercial Officer at NetEnt Andy Whitworth commented on the win. He said, “Our global jackpot games are continuing to break records across the globe and we’re proud to be able to bring such monumental wins to players through Mega Fortune. We hope to continue raising the bar with even bigger jackpots in future.”
Svenska Spel Sport & Casino’s Head of Online Casino Niklas Örtbrant also commented on the win, stating, “To break records twice in two weeks with such a significant jump from the second to first highest win is incredible and we can’t wait to see what the jackpot climbs to next time. We wish all the best to the lucky player and hope they enjoy this life-changing sum.”
Mega Jackpot Hit Five Times in the Last Year
Casinolistings regularly tracks all of the major progressive jackpots in online gambling, including Mega Fortune. According to their stats, this is the fifth time that this game has paid out its Mega jackpot in the last year.
Before this win, the game paid out a jackpot of €3.77 million back in April. The smallest jackpot of the year was just over €1 million paid back in December.
According to their records, Mega Fortune pays out every 10 weeks on average. It has an average win of $3.97 million. The smallest win ever was €6557,050 while the largest win in history was €17.86 million recorded back in January of 2013.
The largest win in the last year was €4.18 million, happening back in November 2019. The Mega jackpot currently sits around €1 million. Based on past results, the game isn’t due to hit for at least another month.
Winning the Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot
Mega Fortune has three different progressive jackpots you can win. The Rapid and Major jackpot award reasonable prizes, but nothing compared to the Mega jackpot. To win the Mega jackpot, you have to make it to the Bonus Game.
During the Bonus Game, you spin the reel and try to progress deeper into the wheel by landing on an arrow. During the progression, you can land on the Rapid or Major jackpots but if you are lucky enough to progress to the innermost reel, you will win the Mega jackpot.
The Mega jackpot seeds at €250,000 and builds from there.
Play Mega Fortune at Australian Online Casinos
Keep in mind that Mega Fortune is not a good game to play if you do not like high variance or plan to clear online casino bonuses. Most bonuses will not allow you to play jackpot pokies. Mega Fortune is a game suitable for players looking to make life-changing money and don’t mind a little extra risk to their bankroll.
