Earlier this month, a very lucky NetEnt player won the Mega Fortune progressive slot jackpot. The new millionaire won an amount of €4,865,566. Details of winners are not always published, but this time, we know it was a Norwegian player who has been revealed as the Mega Fortune winner.
New Mega Fortune NetEnt Millionaire
The new Mega Fortune millionaire won the equivalent of approximately 45,000,000 kroner. When the player in his 20s first saw that he had won, he was pleased to note that he had won the amount of 45,000 kroner which is about €4,900. It took moments before he realised that he needed to add another three zeros to the winning amount.
The winner, who will remain anonymous, said: “I was playing NetEnt’s Mega Fortune game a little before bed, and then suddenly the jackpot hit. I was unsure at first if it was true, but it has gradually dawned on me how much I’ve won. I’ll build a house with the money, but otherwise want to just carry on as normal.”
The Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, Simon Hammon, commented on the recent win: “Mega Fortune continues to be one of NetEnt’s best performing and most played games, and we’re over the moon that another jackpot has dropped. We’re looking forward to even more players enjoying the great gameplay and features in the future, and I’m sure it won’t be too long before the slot changes another life for the good.”
