Mega Fortune jackpot creates new world record
A multi-million Euro slot win has been confirmed as the largest ever.
The €11.7 million progressive jackpot – equivalent to £10,272,600 or $15,844,900 – was won by a 20-year-old Norwegian man playing on Net Entertainment’s Mega Fortune game on Betsson.com back in September.
The payout has officially been established as the biggest ever by Guinness World Records, with Net Entertainment and Betsson.com named as co-owners of the prize.
Net Entertainment acting president and CEO Björn Krantz said: “It’s great that our efforts are recognised by the renowned Guinness book of World Records. We are very happy to be able to provide the most efficient pooled progressive online slot jackpot in the market to support our customers in their sales and marketing efforts.”
Mega Fortune is a progressive jackpot slot which forms part of Net Entertainment’s jackpot network, meaning liquidity is pooled from players at a number of Europe’s largest online casinos. In the last year the game has paid out over €26 million to lucky players.
