A 50 cent bet has led to a life-changing win after a British player on Gate 777 hit for €3,3 million euro while playing Mega Fortune, the wildly popular progressive video slot from NetEnt.
The online domain is a brand managed by White Hat Gaming Limited and licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission of Great Britain, the Swedish Gambling Authority, Spelinspektionen, as well as the Malta Gaming Authority.
Director of Games for NetEnt, Bryan Upton used the official press release to comment on the big win, saying…
“We are thrilled that Mega Fortune has again created another instant multi-millionaire and delivered a life-changing win. Since their releases, Mega Fortune and its sibling titles have generated an astonishing 60 one-million-plus euro jackpots.”
Decades of experience:
The Swedish provider of premium gaming solutions to online casino operators has two decades worth of experience with jackpot games, including classics such as Mega Fortune, Mega Fortune Dreams, Hall of Gods and Arabian Nights.
And most recently, new jackpot games like the popular Japanese-themed diversion, Imperial Riches, Mercy of the Gods and Grand Spinn Superpot have joined the software developer’s award-winning games portfolio.
“We know that the chance of hitting it real big is something that players really love. Therefore, we’ve made a push to add even more exciting jackpot games to our portfolio. Stay tuned for more innovation in this space from NetEnt,” added Upton.
Also commenting on the whopping €3,3 million euro jackpot win, Chief Executive Officer for Gate777, Ronna Shilon, said…
“On behalf of everyone at Gate777, I extend huge congratulations to our big winner. We are beyond thrilled when our players have a fantastic experience with us and when they win. We work hard to bring them the best slot and table games the industry has to offer, and we look forward to seeing more and more winners on Gate777.”
Biggest NetEnt jackpot of 2019:
In March, following a €3,542,863 jackpot that dropped earlier in the SAME month, a 65-year-old woman landed NetEnt’s biggest jackpot of 2019 so far, when she took home €4,333,667.97 after staking just €4 on a round of spins at Betsson’s online casino while playing Mega Fortune Dreams.
The huge win was followed by another impressive payout of £5,400 that took place just a few weeks after NetEnt launched Dead or Alive 2, when a lucky winner earned 30,000x their 0.18c per spin stake while playing the sequel to Dead or Alive on Videoslots.com.
Red Tiger acquisition:
It’s been a busy year so far for the Stockholm-headquartered company, which earlier this month completed the acquisition of casino games development company, Red Tiger Gaming. In keeping with NetEnt’s vision to create the future of gaming, the all-cash deal, with an initial enterprise value of GBP 200 million, plus a possible additional amount of maximum GBP 23 million in 2022, works to enhance the two company’s combined global reach.
Commenting on the acquisition, Chief Executive officer for NetEnt, Therese Hillman, said at the time…
“We are very impressed by the big portfolio that they have. They also have great table games and their is a demand for more table games, especially across the US which offers a new opportunity for us.”
