NetEnt pays out first Mega Fortune™ Mega jackpot of 2020

With the last Mega Fortune™ win being 17 weeks ago, it was about time that another lucky player would come into the picture! The Mega Fortune™ slot is creating numerous lucky winners daily, but only once in a while, that super attractive Mega Fortune™ Jackpot is won. It has been a week ago that one lucky player had the luck to win the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot with NetEnt paying out an incredible €3.8 million! Now the player just has to wait until after the lockdown to be able to spend his or her new fortune!

Rich or happy?

If there’s one lesson we learned in the past weeks, it’s that money can’t buy you health! Health isn’t for sale, and we already know that happiness isn’t for sale either, then what is! I’m sure you can buy friends and when you’re over 70, you might be able to buy yourself a gold digger, but I’m pretty sure it’s not worth spending your new fortune on.

After all the travelling I’ve done and the things I did, I think I would spend my new fortune on a beach house or a trailer I can put on the beach. As long as I’m far away from the civilized world, I’ll be happy! I used to love living in crowded places, but I guess things change, we change!

I’m just wondering if this Covid19 fiasco we’re in, changed the priorities of the people. I, for example, had my eyes opened a long time ago and never had the intention to become rich and powerful! I just want to have a simple life and rather make memories than money. A few years ago, I stopped buying everything I wanted to buy. Instead, I asked myself the question if I really need it. Why buying it, if I don’t really need it? I saved some money there, that’s for sure! And no, I didn’t become a hippy, but my reckless shopping days are definitely over!

So being rich is not my pursuit of happiness, but that doesn’t mean that a few extra bucks can’t come in handy in life. Making memories often cost money as well. That’s when the Mega Fortune™ slot comes into the picture as this game has been developed with millionaires in mind. Everything in this game breathes money! The yachts, the jewellery, the limousine, and the Champagne. There are dollars everywhere and there are even more dollars (and euros and pounds) to be won! These come in the form of standard wins and three progressive jackpots.

The Mega Fortune™ video slot comes with a bonus game, activated by three bonus symbols on consecutive reels. Inside the big conspicuous wheel, you’ll find two inner wheels. These wheels will start moving around one another when you click the spin button. The outer wheel guarantees wither a cash prize or an arrow. A cash prize will mean the end of the bonus game while an arrow sends you further into the wheel. A cash prize will be yours as well unless a second arrow is picked! The cash prizes are getting better each time you move into the Wheel of Fortune. However, the best-case scenario is that you’ll reach the heart of the wheel to pick up your fortune.

The Jackpot Bonus game features 3 wheels and 3 progressive Jackpots which means that among the cash prizes, there are two more symbols to be found. These symbols are linked to the two local jackpots, the Rapid and the Major Jackpots. These two jackpots are linked to either one brand or to one operator which means they’ll climb up slower than the pooled jackpot linked to all NetEnt Casinos.

Besides the Jackpot Bonus game, you’ll have access to Wilds, Scatters, and Free Spins as well. The Wild will do what it always does in a NetEnt video slot, substituting for any other symbol (except the Scatter and Bonus symbols). The Scatter won’t be substituted by the Wild because it has its own important role to play in the game. Three Scatters will award free spins with free wins flowing into your account.

When three Champagne Scatters appear anywhere on the reels, you have to select one of the Scatters to reveal the number of Free Spins and the Multiplier linked to these free spins. 2 or more Scatters during the Free Spins will activate additional Free Spins or an additional Multiplier.

Mega Fortune™ Jackpot win

The pooled Mega Fortune™ Jackpot created 54 new millionaires so far, including the last winner. NetEnt paid out an incredible €3,772,519 to this last winner, the highest Mega Fortune™ win this year.

The average time the Mega Jackpot usually needs is 10 weeks. The average Mega Jackpot paid out by NetEnt is €3,999,945 while the highest Mega Fortune™ Jackpot amounts €17,860,868. This jackpot was won in January 2013 by a Finnish player.

In 2019, the Mega Fortune™  Mega Jackpot was paid out four times with the highest jackpot €4,187,576. With an average of 10 weeks for this jackpot to be won, this number is in line with the average. I expect the jackpot to create another four to five winners in 2020 with the first being a fact now.
