Net Entertainment has a reputation as one of the online casino industry’s most prolific game developers. A notable product produced by NetEnt is their progressive pokies jackpot network, and progressive pokies like Mega Fortune have rose to stardom after having rewarded multiple players with multi-million dollar jackpots.
Most recently, NetEnt’s Mega Fortune progressive pokie has again entered the limelight. In September this year, the pokie paid out another substantial jackpot to an anonymous player from Norway. The jackpot win is valued at €4.9 million, which translates to over NZ$7.5 million.
Winner Remains Anonymous
The anonymous Norwegian player who won the most recent Mega Fortune jackpot struck it lucky while playing the NetEnt progressive game at Betsson.com. The player is believed to be in his mid 20’s, and stated that he won the jackpot while enjoying pokies as a way to relax before going to bed.
It was to his surprise that the NetEnt pokie paid out a life-changing multi-million jackpot, which is valued locally at NOK 45 million. In a press statement, the player admitted to celebrating what he thought at first was a NOK 45,000 win. However, he later realised that the jackpot had been a far more substantial multi-million amount, which was reported by Net Entertainment in a recent press statement.
The anonymous winner said that he was playing Mega Fortune a little before bed, and then suddenly the jackpot hit. He was unsure at first if it was true, but it gradually dawned on him how much he’d won. He said he’d build a house with the money, but otherwise wanted to just carry on as normal as he was content in every other way.
Yet Another Massive Pokies Payout
The most recent Mega Fortune jackpot winner is the second player to be made a multi-millionaire by the game so far in 2016. A few months prior in January, another player based in the UK triggered a $2.7 million jackpot. Triggered by a $5 stake, this jackpot was won at Casumo Casino by the Northern Yorkshire-based punter.
Giving comment on the most recent Mega Fortune win, the Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, Simon Hammon, said that Mega Fortune continues to be one of NetEnt's best performing and most played games, and the brand is over the moon that another jackpot has dropped. He added that NetEnt is looking forward to even more players enjoying the great gameplay and features in the future, and he was sure it wouldn’t be too long before the pokies game changed another life for the better.
