NetEnt might have created some of the best games in the online gaming world, but they may also have created one of the luckiest and biggest winning jackpots too. The Mega Fortune slot is what it says it is: a mega fortune. When you play at this slot you have to opportunity to win some potentially huge jackpots, all because the participating casinos slowly add a percentage of the wagers to the overall jackpot. Read below to find out more.
Mega Fortune is a relatively simple looking slot from NetEnt but it is also an impressive triple jackpot slot game. It is recognised by everyone within the iGaming world as having some of the largest payouts in iGaming history. People love this fact about it, because it is one of those NetEnt games that could make you an overnight millionaire if everything lands in the right place (see below for the previous winners).
There are three progressive jackpots in Mega Fortune (by progressive we mean that the jackpot amount is determined by the players at the casino which you’re at, and in line with others, they slowly add up by deducting a portion of all the slots wagers): Mega Fortune Rapid, Mega Fortune Major, and Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot. The first two jackpots can award you some large figures that any player would be happy to get, but it is this last figure that has everyone in the iGaming world excited (read below for more).
If you won one of these life-changing jackpots, what would you do? You’d be in shock, you wouldn’t know who to tell first, and you might not even believe it at first. This is basically what happened to the most recent winner of the Mega Fortune jackpot.
The most recent winner is a German journalist living in Lower Saxony. After coming home from work one night, tired after a long day and ready for something to eat, our winner soon got one of the biggest surprises in his life. He had put his oven pizza in, and whilst waiting though he might as well have a spin on a slot. Moments later he had one of the largest prizes in NetEnt’s roster: exactly €3,469,139.45 !!!
“I was numb and disbelieved for a few minutes” our journalist said – imagine what his partner said when they found out too!
How then do you win the Mega Jackpot? Well firstly you have to get three of the bonus symbols in a winning line combination. Following this you’ll be taken to the Mega Wheel of Fortune. This is three wheels attached to one another, and to get to the Mega Jackpot for the millions you have to progressively move through each wheel.
The first wheel allows you to win the first jackpot: the Mega Fortune Rapid. The second wheel allows you to win the second: the Mega Fortune Major. If you win both these, then you progress to the big one!
Surely it can’t pay out often? Nope. In the last year Mega Fortune has made 8 millionaires, and it pays out its average €4,000,000 every ten weeks. As Henrik Fagerlund, the Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, said “the jackpot [is] swelling the number of Mega Fortune millionaires”.
