Only last week, casino gaming giant Net Entertainment announced that Mega Fortune was coming to the touch range, meaning that players on mobiles and tablets could get their hands on the slot that holds the world record for the largest ever online pay out. Well, they couldn’t have asked for a better slice of free publicity as Friday the 13th, which may be unlucky for some, saw an unnamed Finnish player scooping the mammoth top prize of €2.6 million.
While Microgaming’s Mega Moolah slot might still be the king of online progressive jackpot games, the company must be looking over their shoulder at the fast approaching Mega Fortune which is looking to take its crown. The game features top class gaming action and a dedicated bonus round. What keeps players coming back for more is that a specific symbol combination opens up the wheel of fortune and if the arrows land right four times, then the top prize is yours. This is exactly what happened to this lucky player who can be certain of a merry Christmas this year, and we’d dare say every year for the rest of their life!
Like many flagship progressive slots from each of the major developers, Mega Fortune taps into the liquidity of all of the leading Net Entertainment casinos. Qualifying bets start at a €1 or the local currency equivalent and require all wins to be active. A small part of each qualifying bet is then split among the three main jackpots on the game, the Rapid, Major and Mega Prizes. Basically, every player is contributing to the same pool if they’re playing Mega Fortune and each player also has an equal shot at scooping the jackpot. This is of course great news for our readers, as we don’t have to simply say ‘play here for the best shot at winning’ and you can check out all of the leading Net Entertainment casinos to see which one best suits your needs and tastes.
The latest win brings the total paid out in jackpots on Mega Fortune to over €40 million and the game continues to hold the aforementioned world record for an online slot pay out, which changed someone’s life in January 2013 to the tune of nearly €18 million.
Significant jackpot wins at NetEnt casinos always attract comment from the man at the top at the company, CEO Per Eriksson, and he said of this latest hit: “We congratulate the lucky Mega Fortune jackpot winner for this life changing win. Net Entertainment offers the very best progressive jackpot slots on the market and the high liquidity that we see through these games supports a swift turnaround of multimillion euro pay outs. I am sure that we will be able to congratulate yet another millionaire in the near future.”
He could well be right. Unlike many progressive games, there’s no way of predicting or even getting a feel for when the jackpot will hit and it reaches seven figures so quickly that it is always worth playing for. Even at the exact time of writing, the jackpot stands at over half a million euros, having only been hit four days ago. With the game now available not only online but also mobiles, there’s absolutely no excuse not to get involved! You can play Mega Fortune and other big NetEnt progressive games like Arabian Nights right now at Mr Green Casino, or even get those strategies in place before dipping into your bankroll by checking out both games with no deposit required, right here at Mr Gamez.
