NetEnt, the world’s leading provider of high-quality online casino games, has paid out 2.5 MEUR after a Swedish player won the massive pooled jackpot when playing Mega Fortune Touch™ on LeoVegas.com.
The 24-year-old jackpot winner, who lives in Stockholm, Sweden, was playing the mobile version of Mega Fortune™. Since its release, the game has become hugely popular with players around Europe and currently holds the Guinness World Record for the largest ever jackpot payout in an online slot machine of 17.8 MEUR from January 2013.
The lucky player comments: “I can’t believe it, I mean, I saw the screen on my mobile but I still can’t believe it. Almost 23 million Swedish Kronor and I’m only 24 years old, it’s totally insane. Now I’m going to invest the money to make sure I’m set for the future, and of course go out and celebrate with my friends. A big thanks to LeoVegas!”
Mega Fortune™ is part of NetEnt’s global jackpot network, where the liquidity from many of the largest European online casinos is pooled. Mega Fortune™ has made millionaires across Europe since 2008 when it was commercially released to the general market.
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of Net Entertainment, comments: “It’s so exciting that this Mega Fortune jackpot was won using a mobile device. Players can now become millionaires, even while on the bus or taking a walk in the park. Congratulations to Leo Vegas and the player on this epic win!”
