On November 28th we brought you the news that, for a second time that week, a huge Netent jackpot had been hit. Mega Fortune had paid out a whopping €8.5 million. At the time we didn’t have much information except how much they won, that they were a Swedish player and where they won; Comeon’s Folkeautomaten brand. Now, we have an interview with the man himself on his big win!
Introducing Alexander, a 30 year old gentleman from Stockholm, Sweden, who is NetEnt’s latest jackpot multimillionaire. He was playing with a stake of less than €1.50 when he hit the bonus round and had a balance update of €8.5 million.
How did you feel when you realised you’d won the huge €8.5 million Mega Fortune Jackpot?
I was totally speechless and couldn’t believe what was happening. It was late and my wife had already gone to bed, but I had to wake her up and celebrate.
Do you have any plans for the money, if you don’t mind us asking?
I’m going to lay low to begin with, but I’ll make sure my mortgage is paid and treat myself to some exciting holidays. It will probably be difficult to avoid buying a new car!
Sounds like a solid plan to me! As excited as Alex surely is, there is something else exciting about this win and that it has broken another world record (NetEnt just keep on doing that, don’t they?).
Biggest Ever Mobile Jackpot Win on Mega Fortune Touch
This new €8.5 million jackpot hit was actually achieved on Mega Fortune Touch, making it the largest ever mobile win! This is an excellent piece of free marketing for NetEnt, after their Guinness World Record for highest ever online jackpot hit was beaten recently (only by a hair!) by another provider. This shows the world that NetEnt games really are worth playing as they are continually breaking records and making millionaires out of ‘normal’ people like you and I.
Second Jackpot in One Week
The news of this record breaking mobile jackpot win came just days after another player became a millionaire with Mega Fortune’s sister slot, Mega Fortune Dreams. At Maria Casino, from Unibet, a Swedish player won €4.5 million on the night of the 24th November. This brings the total of NetEnt jackpot wins, for one week alone up to over €13 million.
