Casinos By Daditz / February 2, 2018 Share Tweet Share A lucky player at SlotsMillion won a €2,553,604.67 jackpot while playing the NetEnt’s progressive jackpot slot Mega Fortune this week. This is the first multi-million euro jackpot drop the leading software provider saw this year and the SlotsMillion’s first ever millionaire. The €2.5m jackpot was won by a UK-based player who wants to stay anonymous. According to the press release published by NetEnt, he signed up with SlotsMillion just a few days prior to hitting the life-changing win. The last jackpot hit before this one dropped on January 23. Mega Fortune is a 5-reel, 25-payline video slot which uses a luxury theme. It has the largest online pooled jackpot of all NetEnt progressive slots and its luxury theme gives players a preview of a life they can live once they win the Mega jackpot. Besides the pooled jackpot which can go up to €4m, the game also features two local jackpots. To trigger the jackpot game, players have to land 3 bonus wheel symbols. Spin the Wheel of Fortune for a chance of winning one of the jackpots, a coin prize or a free spins feature with a multiplier going up to 5x on all payouts. In 2017, NetEnt paid out more than €75 million in jackpots. Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said that hitting the jackpot was a great start to the year for the lucky winner and they were pleased that they had been able to play a part in his life-changing moment. Mega Fortune is a long-time favourite with NetEnt players, so it’s no surprise to see it claim the first winner of 2018 and we hope it continues to be a lucky year for everyone who has a spin, said Fagerlund.
