A punter from Finland has won the biggest internet progressive jackpot ever, as he (or she) managed to hit the Mega Fortune jackpot while playing at Paf Casino.

The epic win is worth €17,861,813.00 and will be paid out tax-free to the winner's casino account. The record setting amount beats the world record of €11.7 million which has been recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Commenting on the win Net Entertainment CEO Per Eriksson said: "This is our second world record jackpot in online gaming. The large liquidity within the slots with progressive jackpots enables the rapid growth of these jackpots, which is great news for the operators. We want to congratulate the winner of this record jackpot and hope to turn many more players into millionaires in the future."

Paf Head of Press and Public Relations Anders Sims also commented, saying: "This win is completely off the charts for these kinds of games. The whole gaming world has been holding its breath during this fall and winter, while the jackpot has just kept on growing. As this jackpot was pooled, which means that it is shared by several gaming companies, we are naturally very happy about the fact that the jackpot was again won by one of our customers. Paf players seem to have an incredibly good flow at the moment."
