Huge online slot win breaks jackpot record
An online slots player has broken the world record for the biggest jackpot win.
A middle-aged Finnish player scooped €17.8m while playing the Mega Fortune game at internet casino Paf.com.
The previous record, as found in the Guinness Book of World Records, was €11.7m.
Several big jackpots have been won at Paf.com in the past year, including prizes of €8.6m and €6.9m.
The latest jackpot will be paid tax free straight into the player’s account.
“The whole gaming world has been holding its breath during this fall and winter, while the jackpot has just kept on growing,” said Paf head of press and PR Anders Sims.
“Since this jackpot was pooled, which means that it is shared by several gaming companies, we are naturally very happy about the fact that the jackpot was again won by one of our customers.”
Per Eriksson, CEO of Mega Fortune providers Net Entertainment, added: “The large liquidity within the slots with progressive jackpots enables the rapid growth of these jackpots, which is great news for the operators.”
