Jackpot joy as €5million drops on NetEnt’s Mega Fortune slot

NetEnt, the leading developer of world-class digital casino solutions, helped the dreams of one Betsson player come true, following the fall of a 45,000,000 kroner (€4.9m) jackpot on its popular Mega Fortune slot.

The Norwegian man, playing on the Betsson.com website, is the second multi-millionaire to be created playing Mega Fortune this year, following a €2.7m windfall in the UK in January.

Initially the man, in his 20s, thought he’d won 45,000 kroner (€4,900), before realising he’d won the life-changing amount. He said: “I was playing NetEnt’s Mega Fortune game a little before bed, and then suddenly the jackpot hit. I was unsure at first if it was true, but it has gradually dawned on me how much I’ve won. I’ll build a house with the money, but otherwise want to just carry on as normal.”

Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, said: “Mega Fortune continues to be one of NetEnt’s best performing and most played games, and we’re over the moon that another jackpot has dropped. We’re looking forward to even more players enjoying the great gameplay and features in the future, and I’m sure it won’t be too long before the slot changes another life for the good.”
