Did you know that you don’t just have to play Netent jackpot games to hit the big win? Even their standard video slots like Starburst or Magic Portals have the potential to change your life in just one spin. Today we bring you some examples of Netent players who won big on these player favourite slots recently, how they did it and which casinos they were playing at.
€36 Deposit into €52,000 at LaRomere
One incredibly lucky player had 3 lucky hits recently at LaRomere when she managed to turn a 50CAD (approx €36) deposit into a whopping 70,885CAD win (we’re talking over €52,000!). Here’s where she won her money;
- Magic Portals: 38,100CAD (approx €28,000)
- Space Wars: two big wins of 16,450CAD and 16,335CAD (approx €24,000).
These are two games that I personally don’t play so often, but it’s exactly this kind of news which pushes me to try out new games, rather than sticking to my old favourites. It’s good to have your favs, but nice to mix things up a bit sometimes.
Magic Portals is a 5 reel, 25 pay-line video slot from Netent, with a super high theoretical return to player of 96.6%. The Magic Portals feature is super unique; a portal sits on each side of the reels and if identical icons land inside them, then other symbols will transform too, creating even more win chances.
Space Wars is a cute space themed video slot with 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 pay-lines. It features an even bigger RTP of 96.8% so this big win on LaRomere is no surprise!
€66,000 win on Starburst at Royal Panda
Starburst is by far one of Netent’s most successful video slots. It’s super simple, but appealing with it’s bright colours, fun Expanding Wild + ReSpin feature and, of course, it’s generous 96.1% RTP. In Starburst, if a Starburst Wild appears on the reels, it’ll expand up and down to cover the entire row, creating win chances, then it’ll freeze in place and ReSpin the reels for free, giving you a second chance at winning with just the one spin.
The winning player at Royal Panda managed to hit 3 Starburst Wilds at once, which expanded and completed their respins and with several combinations and several more good spins, she managed to bag herself 615,567 SEK, around €66,000!
These kind of big wins just go to show that you don’t have to be a high roller, or a big spender in order to win huge prizes and having a smaller budget does not necessarily put you at a disadvantage. All Netent slots are run via a Random Number Generator (often known simply as a RNG) meaning your previous history, deposit amount, time of day, other player results do not affect whether you win with each spin. It means that whoever you are, literally anything can happen!
