NetEnt’s Mega Fortune progressive jackpot slot is, together with Microgaming’s Mega Moolah, one of the most popular slots in the online gaming world.
Considering that the jackpot’s minimum (i.e. reseed) value is an impressive £250,000, it’s no surprise that the video slot has taken pride of place in the games lobby of many UK-facing online bingo and casino sites.
Typically, the game pays out its progressive jackpot every 10-and-a-half weeks, and one of the most recent players to scoop it is a Swedish player.
The player, who was awarded the equivalent of €2.6m, managed to help his favourite online casino operator break its record for its biggest ever online slot win just one week after another player from Stockholm netted €238.5k on the same NetEnt slot.
The Chief Commercial Officer of NetEnt, Andy Whitworth, says that NetEnt is “proud to be able to bring such monumental wins to players” through its record-breaking jackpot games, and that the software developer hopes to launch “even bigger jackpots in future”.
MegaFortune is a popular feature of many Dragonfish bingo sites such as Bumble Bingo, Sailor Bingo, and Robin Hood Bingo, and members of these sites can take it for a spin for as little as 25p.
The largest ever recorded win on the slot was €17,860,868, although the jackpot’s average payout is just under €4m.
One of the biggest Mega Fortune payouts (N.B., €8,577,104) that occurred at a UK site was awarded to Wellzyc at BGO Casino in December 2016.
Just a couple of weeks ago, NetEnt’s latest non-progressive jackpot slot, Cash Noire, was launched across the Dragonfish bingo network.
Cash Noire is set in the gritty criminal underworld of San Cayetano and it features the patented Avalanche feature, 1,024 betways, and a free spins bonus that is triggered by collecting crime scene clues.
