A Norwegian man has won Net Entertainment's Mega Fortune jackpot worth €11,736,228. The jackpot accumulated for more than 200 days before a Norwegian man in his 20's hit the jackpot on a €0.50 wager. The man decided to play a few spins at Betsson after he came home from a night out at the movies. Using 10 free spins that were credited to his account he won 46 Norwegian Kronor and decided to keep playing. Eleven rounds later he hit the progressive jackpot, a staggering €11,736,228, a record for an internet based jackpot.
Speaking to Betsson management, the player said, "This is unbelievable, I didn’t believe it and had to call my brother and a few friends. It hasn’t really sunk in yet.
“I couldn’t sleep until 6 am due to the shock! I woke up at 7.00 am again. It was just impossible to sleep, and i am shaking and sweating. I haven’t thought about what to do with the winnings. i need to try and calm down before even thinking of what I do with the money!"
”I usually play in Betsson’s sportsbook, but I saw the huge sum of the jackpot and thought ‘Yeah! Let’s give the free spins a shoot and see what happens’. It was a shocking experience when €11.7 million dropped before my eyes”, he added.
”Not even in my wildest fantasies did I ever think I would win that €11.7 million jackpot. But it has happened and I am over the moon about it."
The man is a student hailing from Hordaland, Norway and will be receiving professional financial advice from consultants being provided from Betsson.
