€5,996,418 Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot Won

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Today a punter playing NetEnt's legendary video slot Mega Fortune hit the game's Mega Jackpot for a large €5,996,418 cash prize.

Details on the win aren't available just yet, but we can confirm that the prize was won, as our exclusive jackpot tracker picked up the prize. The win is the 46th since we've been tracking the prize, and it comes in well above the €4,126,861 average that is paid out every 10 weeks or so. The record jackpot is €17,860,868, which at one point was a Guinness World Record for largest online jackpot win.

The Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot is won when players are able to advance to the jackpot bonus round. There, they need to progress on the wheel of fortune all the way into the innermost symbol. If they make it there, they take home the Mega Jackpot.

Casino Listings News will be keeping up on the story and will update readers as we learn more.

UPDATE: We have some details on the win. The jackpot was hauled in by a 27 year old Swedish punter who took home the prize at Lets Bet Casino.

NetEnt's Henrik Fagerlund commented, saying, "Mega Million has been a huge success and we are thrilled that the final whistle has blown on our World Cup-themed campaign with the biggest Mega Fortune jackpot winner for two years. "It is also further proof that NetEnt games are regular millionaire-makers, with this being the ninth seven-figure jackpot winner in 2018."

Quite a young guy hits that one,hopefully not with his first spins ever.

And yeah pretty high above the average even though at this one you'll be just fine even with an "average" Jackpot hit.
