Netent, one of the world’s leading online casino game providers, announced today that they have made yet another player a millionaire, as their progressive jackpot game “Mega Fortune” paid out €3,100,000 to a player from Hessen, Germany.
The player was playing the game from his/her mobile device on Betsson and placed a spin for €0.50 that triggered the massive jackpot prize. The jackpot prize was so high due to it being pooled between many of the biggest providers, with a constant flow of money going towards the prize pool.
The jackpot payout was the second within a week for Netent players, with a Swedish woman winning €4,600,000 earlier this week. The jackpot prizes were not anywhere close to the biggest one every won, which happened in January 2013 and was a massive prize of €17,900,000.
Jackpot winner, 23, from Hessen, Germany comments: “After seeing a Mega Fortune™ promotion, my husband and I decided to give the game a try after we put our children to bed – and then the impossible happened. When we saw the jackpot we jumped around!”
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, comments: “This great win is the second multi-million award in a week on NetEnt’s famous pooled jackpot games. The ability to win such an amount on a mobile device really shows how one’s life can change while on the move.”
