Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot Won for €2,697,563

The world welcomed a new millionaire this past weekend when a punter won the Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot for an astounding €2,697,563 prize.

The win comes just days after another lucky punter won the Mega Fortune Dreams Mega Jackpot for €3,423,065, and is the 30th jackpot win for the game's Mega prize since we began tracking it in June 2009. On average the game pays out €4,212,042 and is won every 11 weeks.

The Mega Fortune slot features a theme of wealth and riches, and the game has a series of progressive jackpots that are won by having the wheel land on the particular jackpot wedge. The Mega Jackpot wedge is located in the dead center of the wheel, making it the hardest win to achieve.

The game previously held the Guinness World Record for largest progressive jackpot win at €17.8 million until the Mega Moolah Jackpot surpassed it late last year.

Casino Listings will update this story as more developments arise.

UPDATE: We can confirm that this big win was won by a punter from Yorkshire, who took home the big win at Casumo.

The big winner hit the win on his mobile phone, taking home the jackpot on just a £5 spin.

Commenting on his big win the new millionaire said, "I was shocked when I saw how much I had won, and ran downstairs to ask my dad to come and make sure I wasn't dreaming. I was shaking when he said it was real. Nothing like this has ever happened to me, it's a strange feeling, but it will mean so much to my family."

"I'm going to give some of the winnings to my family, buy a house, and maybe go on holiday. In a year from now I will still be the same as I ever was, but with a house - or two - of my own!"
