I had busier years when it comes to the NetEnt updates involving new customer agreements, licenses received and more, but one aspect of the company never fails to bring news: the NetEnt Jackpots. Growing faster than ever, new winners are created constantly with a total of 321 jackpots won in 2017. Together these 321 online casino jackpot payouts amounted a dazzling €78.3 million while the NetEnt Jackpots keep on growing in popularity.
Pooled NetEnt Jackpots
Mega Fortune™, Mega Fortune Dreams™, Arabian Nights™ and Hall of Gods™ are NetEnt’s famous pooled jackpot slots giving operators access to four of the largest online jackpots in the iGaming industry offering players a chance to win a truly life-changing jackpot of which the largest ever won in a NetEnt Casino amounted €17.9 million through the Mega Fortune™ video slot in 2013.
Being pooled jackpots, these four NetEnt jackpot slots are more appealing to the NetEnt Casino players with a chance to win millions within just one spin. The pooled NetEnt Jackpots are famous for their high jackpots while climbing up faster than most online casino jackpots. The logical explanation for these pooled NetEnt Jackpots to climb up much faster than regular jackpots is because the pooled NetEnt Jackpots are linked to tens of online casinos with an impressive jackpot as the result.
Mega Fortune™, for example, the most popular pooled jackpot in the iGaming industry and responsible for the second-highest online casino jackpot win, is available at an incredible 145+ NetEnt Casinos. It’s because of this extended network of NetEnt Casinos, an impressive number of players find their way to the Mega Fortune™ slot, or any of the other three pooled NetEnt Jackpots, playing with real money leaving a small percentage of every bet behind for the Mega Fortune™ Mega Jackpot to climb.
As mentioned before, Mega Fortune™, Mega Fortune Dreams™, Arabian Nights™ and Hall of Gods™ are the four pooled NetEnt Jackpots allowing players to win a life-changing jackpot. It’s these four progressive jackpots that can be found at a wide range of NetEnt Casinos.
Mega Fortune™ Jackpot
The Mega Fortune™ slot, linked to the Mega Fortune™ Mega Jackpot, is available at the largest number of NetEnt Casinos making it the most popular NetEnt Jackpot.
While being known as the most popular jackpot game available, this NetEnt jackpot game is also offering a great gameplay including Scatters, Wilds, and Free Spins.
It’s the recognisable Wheel of Fortune bonus game that could turn your session into a successful one with three Mega Fortune Jackpots™ to be won including the popular Mega Fortune™ Mega Jackpot. The additional two jackpots are local jackpots which means they are linked to just one operator or one online casino. However, the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot will be yours when you manage to get to the heart of the Wheel of Fortune.
For a few years, Mega Fortune™ was holding the Guinness World Record for the largest jackpot ever won in an online casino after a player won a staggering €17.9 million in 2013. This win was beating the old record jackpot win that was won in 2011 when a player won the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot of €11.7 million.
Mega Fortune Dreams™ video slot
As the successor of Mega Fortune™, the Mega Fortune Dreams™ video slot will be all about wealth. Besides a chance of becoming the newest NetEnt millionaire, the Mega Fortune Dreams™ video slot gives you a preview of what a wealthy life looks like as well.
The look into the life of a millionaire isn’t all you can expect as this video slot offers a lot of extra features such as Wild substitutions, Free Spins with Multipliers, and Re-spins while a triple progressive jackpot Bonus Game gives you a chance to win one of the three Mega Fortune Dreams™ Jackpots.
“Mega Fortune Dreams alone has paid out around €30 million, but we must not forget Mega Fortune, Arabian Night and Halls of Gods, showing there’s more than one opportunity to win a life-changing amount of money with our pooled jackpots.”
Three bonus symbols anywhere on the reels will be triggering the Bonus game in which you need to pass all three wheels in order to get to the centre of the Fortune Wheel winning the desired Mega Jackpot.
The Mega Fortune Dreams™ video slot is exclusively available at around 25 NetEnt Casinos including LeoVegas and Maria Casino.
Hall of Gods™ video slot
What used to be a less popular jackpot game has truly won in popularity in the past years resulting in the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot growing faster than ever before. The Hall of Gods™ video slot learns you more about Norse mythology with again three NetEnt Jackpots being available.
Mythological characters can be found all over the reels with the Midgard Serpent in the role as Expanding Wild, Odin’s ravens visible on the Scatter symbols while Thor’s Hammer is begin used to break some shield in the bonus game in order to win a jackpot or bonus win.
Three or more Scatters will activate up to 20 free spins in which winnings will be multiplied by an x3 Multiplier.
The bonus game is triggered by three bonus symbols after which you get a chance to win one of the three Hall of Gods™ Jackpots by using Thor’s hammer to break shields aiming for three matching jackpot symbols to win one of the three Hall of Gods™ Jackpots. Three of the same bonus amounts will award you the exact same amount.
Arabian Nights™ video slot
While all the above pooled NetEnt Jackpots are way more popular, the Arabian Nights™ slot is still popular enough for the jackpot to climb into the millions. This pooled jackpot won’t grow as fast as the above NetEnt Jackpots but once those five Wild symbols on an active bet line become visible, you’ll be still secured of a lucrative jackpot while the game is also featuring Wilds, Scatters, and Free Spins.
Total payout NetEnt Jackpots 2017
It was recently that NetEnt revealed the total number of 321 jackpots paid out by the company together amounting a dazzling €78.3 million.
Earlier this year, two players ensured they had the perfect Christmas present after claiming a staggering €3.3 million and €3.5 million respectively via their mobile. A whopping €30.4 million was paid out via the Mega Fortune Dreams™ slot in 2017. The Mega Fortune Dreams™ was the most popular jackpot slot thanks to the highest number of unique players and rounds played.
While Mega Fortune Dreams™ was the most popular slot with incredibly fast-growing jackpots, it was the Hall of Gods™ video slot that has been responsible for the highest jackpot payout this year and the fourth-highest payout in NetEnt history. It was in June that a lucky player scooped a dazzling €7.5 million on Hall of Gods™.
“Our games are continuing to pay out life-changing winnings to players and to be able to win them €78 million in 2017 makes us all very proud.
