The €5.3m Jackpot Payout at BetVictor Casino
Mega Fortune is one of Net Entertainment’s most popular online slots to date. The game is part of the developer’s network of progressive slots, which share prize pools as players play them online. In May of 2013, Net Entertainment’s Mega Fortune peaks and then pays out €5.3m to a player from the UK. The prize was won over the local UK Bank Holiday weekend.
This was the fourth largest jackpot prize to be awarded by the Mega Fortune slot, which also holds the world record for the largest online slots jackpot payout to date. The winning player was playing the online version of Mega Fortune at BetVictor online casino when he triggered the jackpot.
Net Entertainment’s Online Progressive Network
The May 2013 jackpot payout of Mega Fortune closely preceded the game’s record breaking payout of €18m in December of the same year. A month after the €5.3m win in April, another player triggered a €6.7m jackpot while playing Net Entertainment’s Hall of Gods online slot.
Net Entertainment’s progressive network covers three of their progressive online slots, namely Mega Fortune, Arabian Nights, and Hall of Gods. As players play these games online, portions of their bets per spin are added to the network’s Rapid, Major and Mega jackpots.
