January 27th - For some online casino players, January has begun with a bang. There have been three huge hits at NetEnt casinos in just one week. Each of the three hits took place on different NetEnt progressive jackpot slot games. Each hit was for over a million, creating three brand new millionaires.
NetEnt is known to release a number of slots throughout the year. The progressive jackpot games are particularly popular amongst players, having extremely lucrative jackpot prizes. NetEnt has paid out more than €250 million in winnings, having created 55 millionaires.
New Year Brings New NetEnt Millionaires
On January 15th, the first NetEnt millionaire of 2016 was born when a lucky man in his 40s hit the Mega Fortune Dreams progressive slot jackpot for a whopping €3.4 million. The Finnish player was playing at Paf.com when he placed a bet of €4 on the winning slot game.
A few days later, on January 17th, a player in the UK won €2.7 million when playing on the Mega Fortune progressive at Casumo. January 19th brought with it the third major jackpot win at a NetEnt casino. A Norwegian player at Vera&John won €1.6 million when playing the Hall of Gods slot. The hit took place after a bet of just €0.40 was placed.
Mega Fortune Dreams is the successor to the Mega Fortune jackpot game from NetEnt. While Mega Fortune Dreams is an updated version of Mega Fortune, the older slot game is still popular amongst players. The 5-reel, 25 line progressive jackpot video slot game has created a number of millionaires.
“NetEnt’s games are designed to excite, entertain and reward our players so we are thrilled to have created three new multi-millionaires in less than a week,” said Simon Hammon, the Chief Product Offer at NetEnt. “We’re already looking forward to the next big jackpot win – at this rate, I’m sure it will drop soon.”
