Today a punter playing Net Ent's popular Mega Fortune video slot got an early Christmas gift when they hit the Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot for a staggering €7,437,182, the fourth-largest prize in the game's history.
We don't have details on the win as of press time, but we can confirm that the jackpot was hit, and is the 35th win for the Mega Jackpot since we began tracking the jackpot in June 2009. The Mega Jackpot is the largest prize in the game, and has a history of paying out some huge wins. The average win for the game is €4,255,751, with the largest win in the game's history being €17.8, which was won at Paf in 2013 and stood as the Guinness World Record for largest jackpot win until the Mega Moolah Jackpot overtook it in 2015.
The Mega Fortune slot is perhaps Net Ent's most popular slot, as players are always hunting for the jackpot. The game's top prize is won when players get to the jackpot wheel bonus round, and can advance all the way into the innermost wheel and then hit the bullseye Mega Jackpot symbol.
Casino Listings will update this story once Net Ent's PR staff gives us details on the win.
UPDATE: We can report that the win took place at bgo Casino, and came on a wager of just £1.25. The winner hails from Cheshire, and wants to remain anonymous, but did comment on his win, saying: "When I saw the amount that I had won, I was in complete shock and disbelief, so wasn't sure how to react. The win is life changing for me and my family and given us security for the future. First thing that we will enjoy with the win, will be a nice family holiday to Disneyland that my kids will enjoy."
Net Ent's Chief Product Officer Simon Hammon also spoke out about the win, noting: "Mega Fortunes has yet again made another player's dream come true. We're delighted NetEnt's games continue to create multi-millionaires and provide casinos with the chance to change their loyal players lives."
