Wow! It’s not often that we’re this taken aback, but we really were beginning to believe that maybe, just maybe, Arabian Nights wouldn’t ever be hit again. Two months ago we wrote an article which “celebrated” Arabian Nights’ achievement of a full year since it was won on 2nd July 2016. Now, the 30th August (just) will go down in Arabian Nights history as a cool €2,651,019 was finally won on this progressive jackpot by one lucky gamer to thrust it firmly back into the spotlight!
With your stock rising by more than €2.6m in one night, the possibilities are endless for your future.
However, we imagine such a windfall will see a lavish amount of spending commencing in the next few days and weeks, and NetEnt Casino came up with a few suggestions on what to buy after a jackpot win (bear in mind this was when Arabian Nights’ total was at “just” €1.6m!).
More information will come pouring into us over the next few days we’re sure, as this jackpot scoop is a little different to the rest. As ever, we’ll bring you more details on exactly who the blessed iGamer is, and at which hugely rewarding online casino they won Arabian Nights at. We’re expecting something similar to the following from Casumo after Mega Fortune Dreams’ recent drop:

Until then, here are a few musings on Arabian Nights’ near 14-month stint as the unbreakable.
Just a month before Arabian Nights managed to reach the 365-day milestone, we wrote an entire piece on major world events to have happened since 2nd July 2016.
Of course, the last Arabian Nights claim came slightly after Britain’s historic EU Referendum result, but The Donald’s unimaginable surge to the White House surely Trumps that anyway for political shocks.
Other inclusions were based around sports and the progress our beloved iGaming scene had enjoyed, such as the continued rise of the mobile online casino, and we were rather concerned that we’d have to do it all over again around Christmas time!
Thankfully, though, someone has done us a favour by winning the €2.6m jackpot, which will have gone something similar to this:
With such a huge gap between Arabian Nights wins, there may well be a few of you wondering whether this is the longest time since a jackpot was won, ever! While it’s difficult to ascertain exactly what jackpot holds the record for the longest wait, it’s definitely not this edition of Arabian Nights.
The wait between 2nd July 2016 and 30th August 2017 isn’t even the longest gap between Arabian Nights wins itself!
According to the records, there was a 15-month period between November 2012 and March 2014 that was slightly longer, with that particular gamer landing €3.3m.
As Arabian Nights has been knocked off its pedestal, you’ll be interested to know what the other NetEnt progressive networked jackpot totals are, we assume? Considering Mega Fortune Dreams was won not so long ago, it’s down to the Mega Fortune internet casinos and Hall of Gods online casinos to do the business.
Both of these NetEnt pooled jackpots are pretty much level-pegging at the time of writing – close to €2.9m – so they’re well worth a healthy casino bonus or two to try your luck.
While there are plenty of casinos where you can play both, here are a couple of suggestions:
