NetEnt pays out €6.6 million Mega Fortune™ Jackpot to Swedish player
It was last week that NetEnt’s Mega Fortune™ Jackpot dropped and an amazing €5,996,418 was paid out. However, the lucky player was even luckier than expected thanks to the Mega Million campaign which lead to an extra payout of €650,000. This is how the 27-year-old Swede collected a total win of €6.6 million.
Mega Million campaign
During the Mega Million Campaign which ran during the World Cup (14th June – 15th July), NetEnt gave away over €1 million in cash giveaways. The campaign was running on NetEnt’s popular jackpot games including Mega Fortune™ and Hall of Gods™.
The Mega Million Campaign was divided into two parts and the first part gave players a chance to win €3,800 on a day a world cup game was played. This resulted in an extra payout of €95,000 while another million was reserved for the first Mega Jackpot win as an additional sum of money (€350,000 for Hall of Gods™ and €650,000 for Mega Fortune™) was reserved for the next winner.
It was on the 21st June that a Finnish player managed to win the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot of €2.7 million which gave NetEnt the opportunity to add €350.000, part of the extra €1 million Mega Million prize pool. A mobile spin of just €2 on the Hall of Gods™ video slot was enough to scoop an amazing €3,1 million in total.
On the 15th of July, the World Cup final was played and France managed to bring home the cup. That day, the Mega Fortune™ Mega Jackpot didn’t drop yet, but it didn’t take too long as it was on the 30th July that a 27-year-old Swede claimed the Mega Jackpot, at that time showing an incredible €6 million which was also enhanced thanks to the Mega Million Campaign.
Mega Fortune Jackpot win July 2018
Only three hours after signing up at LetsBet, a rather new online casino, the player managed to win NetEnt’s Mega Fortune™ Jackpot. A unique double win, though, as another €650.000 was added as a result of the Mega Million campaign.
“I was on vacation and just felt like playing a bit,” said the shocked Mega Fortune winner. “I am not sure yet what I will use the winnings for, apart from sharing it with my closest ones and perhaps some more vacation.”
This Mega Fortune™ Jackpot win is the 46th win since the launch of the game in 2010. The average Mega Jackpot for the Mega Fortune™ video slot is €4,126,861, with the record being €17,860,868, won by a Finnish player at the beginning of 2013.
Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt Chief Product Officer, said: “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.”
