3rd Mega Jackpot win in 9 days: player wins €7.5 Hall of Gods™ Jackpot
Nine days ago, all NetEnt Mega Jackpots, except for Arabian Nights™, were higher than €4.5 million and now, nine days later, all three of them have been hit. There is not too much to say yet about yesterday’s Hall of Gods™ Jackpot win except that one very lucky player can look forward to an incredible €7,530,141. With this win, the total amount of NetEnt Mega Jackpots won in the past nine days goes up to €20.6 million which must be a new record for the company. If so, it would not be the first record this week as a new mobile jackpot record was set with the win of €8.6 million on Mega Fortune Touch® six days ago.
Hall of Gods™ Jackpot
So it’s almost 24 hours ago an anonymous player at a still unknown NetEnt Casino won the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot and with that an amazing amount of €7,530,141. I have no details about the win other than the amount, but I’m sure more information will be out soon which means an update of this article.
It was at the end of 2010 the Hall of Gods™ slot was launched by NetEnt and ever since the Mega Jackpot, the biggest of the three Hall of Gods™ Jackpots, was hit 10 times. Yesterday’s win wasn’t the largest win, though, as it was earlier this year a €7.8 million Hall of Gods™ Jackpot was won while a €7.6 million jackpot was won at Unibet in 2012.
Although the two latest Mega Jackpot wins on Hall of Gods™ recorded wins of over €7 million, the third latest win amounted €3.8 million. All 10 Mega Jackpot wins divided by 10 makes an average payout of €5,8 million but the past years the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot climbs up faster and higher.
Just as you can’t say how high the next Hall of Gods™ Jackpot is going to be, you can also only guess when the next one is going to be hit by a lucky player. The average time so far is 25 weeks, but it is thanks to the Random Number Generator that a NetEnt Jackpot falls completely random which means the next win can be next week or next year.
New mobile jackpot record with Mega Fortune Touch®
While we wait for some more information about the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot win, which was obviously won at one of the NetEnt Casinos, I have some more NetEnt Jackpot new to share with you. It concerns last week’s win of which many thought it was probably won in an online casino. It was later on the news came out that the €8.6 million jackpot was won while a customer was playing Mega Fortune Touch®. What the player probably didn’t know was that at the exact moment history was made as never before an amount of €8.6 million was won via mobile.
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “NetEnt’s games excite, entertain and reward our players and it’s fantastic to break another record with this jackpot won via mobile. Our games have paid out over €13m in jackpots in just over a week – the perfect early Christmas present.”
The huge prize was won at one of the netEnt Casino’s mobile website from a bet of less than €1.50, turning one lucky 30-year-old from Sweden into a multi-millionaire in an instant. This news message came hot on the heels of a €4.5 million jackpot which fell on Mega Fortune Dreams™ with Unibet just three days before.
Alexander, 30, from Stockholm, said: “I was totally speechless and couldn’t believe what was happening. It was late and my wife had already gone to bed, but I had to wake her up and celebrate. I’m going to lay low to begin with, but I’ll make sure my mortgage is paid and treat myself to some exciting holidays. It will probably be difficult to avoid buying a new car!”
