Reports of a win have not yet been confirmed however a little bird sang in my ear this morning and told me that one lucky winner has scooped the Mega Jackpot on Netent’s Mega Fortune pooled jackpot video slot of approximately €1.5 million! Rumour has it that the jackpot fell at one of World Class Entertainment’s brands, possibly the Swedish focused SverigeKronan.
Another Swedish Win?
You may wonder why jackpots often seem to fall around the Scandinavian area and it’s not a case of favouritism, let me assure you! All Netent games, whether it’s jackpots, classic video slots, or table games like blackjack and roulette, are powered by a RNG a.k.a a Random Number Generator to ensure all results are completely random. It doesn’t matter where you’re located, how much you’ve bet before, what time of day it is, how many other people are playing at the same time, it’s all completely random. The reason that the Scandinavians seem to get so lucky is that Netent games are hugely popular over there and they’re probably Netent’s biggest player base right now.
We don’t yet have any details such as name, age or location of the player, or even the exact figure, however at my last check the jackpot was around €1,450,000. The Mega Fortune video slot only paid out very recently, in March, but since then had already crept up to over a million, a true testament to how popular these games are.
Back in March the Mega Fortune win was around €3 million and was taken home by a speechless Norwegian player who could not believe their luck. I’m betting that even though todays win was a little smaller, there will be no complaints from this lucky winner and we could not be more happy for them.
Why so Secretive?
Jackpot winners are rarely announced immediately when the jackpot falls. This is for a number of reasons, firstly, the win needs to be verified. It’s a lot of money we’re talking about here, so the casino and Netent need to make sure everything is correct and as it should be. Secondly, the winner needs some time to take this news in. This kind of win is completely life changing and not always for the better. Do they want their name disclosed to the public? They can if they wish but they need time to decide whether that would be OK with them, and just what information they’re happy to give out (age, town, initials?). They also need some kind of advice on what to do with that kind of money and often Netent and reputable casinos will be happy to put you in touch with people who can assist you the best way to deal with that kind of cash coming into your life.
Hall of Gods at €8 Million
Once the winner has been announced, if indeed they ever wish to be, we’ll be sure to keep you posted. In the meantime, why not check out Hall of Gods, Netent’s current highest jackpot video slot which boasts a jackpot of almost €8 million right now!
