Net Entertainment, the world’s leading provider of high-quality online casino games, has paid out 2.9 MEUR after a Swedish player won the massive pooled jackpot when playing on Maria from a bet of just 0.7 Euro cents.
The middle-aged jackpot winner, who lives in Jönköping, Sweden was playing the desktop version of Mega Fortune. Since its release, the game has become hugely popular with players around Europe and currently holds the Guinness World Record for the largest ever jackpot payout in an online slot machine of 17.9 MEUR from January 2013.
The life-changing win is Net Entertainment’s second largest payout in 2014 following a 3.3 MEUR payout to a 50-year-old man from Southern Finland just last month.
Mega Fortune is a progressive pooled jackpot and part of Net Entertainment’s jackpot network, where the liquidity from players from many of the largest European online casinos is pooled. Mega Fortune has made millionaires across Europe since 2008 when it was commercially released to the general market.
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of Net Entertainment, comments: “This has been an astonishing start to the year. Mega Fortune has paid out millions of euros to players and we are delighted that Net Entertainment yet again has proved to the gaming community that regular, life-changing wins occur on our mobile or desktop platforms.”
