This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Today a punter changed their life forever when they struck NetEnt's Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot, taking home a whopping €3,467,888 cash prize.

The win was hit in the early morning hours, and hence we don't have any details on the win just yet. The jackpot is hit every 10 weeks on average, with the median prize as of this win sitting at €4,112,840. The most recent win before this hit was €5,996,418, which was hit 8 weeks ago at LetsBet. The jackpot is famous for its large hits, and at one time held a Guinness World Record for largest win.

The Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot is won when players are able to move to the jackpot bonus round, where you're presented with a huge wheel of fortune. In that round, you need to advance to the innermost section of the wheel, where the Mega Jackpot resides.

We'll be following the story and will update as we learn more about the win.

UPDATE: We have obtained some details on the win, with the winner hailing from Germany and winning the prize at PokerStars Casino. The casino posted the video of the win, which can be seen below:

The big winner spoke about the win, revealing: "I was numb and disbelieved for a few minutes."

He plans to buy a second home, an SUV, and to do some home repairs. Of course, there will be plenty left over to enjoy the higher end of things as well.

NetEnt's Henrik Fagerlund also spoke about the win, revealing: "After breaking yet another record, NetEnt's Mega Fortune has once again underlined its legendary status among slots players. This time it has paid out the biggest cash prize in Stars' history, with the jackpot swelling the number of Mega Fortune millionaires to eight in 2018."

What can I say, congrats to that punter, I think reading news like these is what keeps many of us still motivated trying, even without being a Guinness record that's still a massive hit.

I feel the Jackpot game a bit easier to get than other Mega Jackpot games, but my wins mostly were finished in the first tier, hahaha 🙂

I am not sure, but in Mega Fortune Dream, I used to go into the 3rd tier often when I was playing with 1~2 Euro(probably) long before. I just guess that it might be related to the bet size.

So, I assume the same rule in Mega Fortune Mega, which is original.
