*UPDATE* – Maybe it’s because of Mega Million, but NetEnt confirm Mega Fortune’s July 2018 win of a combined €6.6m total within a matter of days. The lucky Swedish player in question won this windfall by playing at the relatively new LetsBet casino, having only opened their account three hours prior!
It’s one of those mornings again, as NetEnt’s Mega Fortune jackpot looks to have been claimed as we caught last night’s sleep. However, this win would be unlike any other if confirmed, as it would also be the second and last Mega Million offering from NetEnt themselves – adding €650,000 to the final pot.
And why do we think this, exactly?
Well, after scanning online casino sites this morning, it’s quite clear that the Mega Fortune jackpot counters, which keep track of the main prize pool, have dropped considerably.
NetEnt will likely release a statement in the coming weeks to confirm this victory – just as they did with the Hall of Gods Mega Million win.
Prior to today, the Mega Fortune counter had been soaring – boosted by the prospect of an extra €650k being offered to the next winner of this jackpot.
Yet, now, it’s languishing back down in the six-figure region – suggesting something big has dropped…
Although the exact figure isn’t known right now, our calculations had it at close to €6million prior to last night.
Whether it managed to surpass that mark remains to be seen, but we’re predicting a win time of around midnight CEST.
Would that make this a Monday 30th July 2018 Mega Fortune jackpot win? Or did the clock tick over into Tuesday 31st July?
One person who’s sure not to care about is the prospective winner!
Not only would they have landed one of iGaming’s most famous jackpots, but they’d also be the proud victor of NetEnt’s Mega Million promo.
Another reason why NetEnt will almost certainly confirm the next Mega Fortune winner is because of their Mega Million promo.
It initially went live the same day Russia thrashed Saudi Arabia 5-0 to kick WC 2018 off in style (the start of things to come!), and it promised to top-up the next Mega Fortune and Hall of Gods windfalls by an additional sum.
With Hall of Gods’ Mega Million boost of €350k already taken, it’s now Mega Fortune’s time to complete the million with its own €650k.
As it looks as though these two jackpots have been slain, attentions will now turn to NetEnt’s other two progressive networked games:
