We all dream about it, that one spin that sees us winning a life changing amount of money in our favourite slot. Unfortunately for most, that dream must stay exactly that, a dream but for the very lucky few luck can be on their side. It also helps when you decide to play games that are known for paying out huge rewards, some games have larger bonuses that rack up cash for you slowly and others have large jackpots waiting to be struck at the right time. A Swedish man has landed a €3.6 million ($4.2M) jackpot by doing just that, he was playing Mega Fortune one of the most famous high jackpot earning games at the Mr Green Casino; a company that also has a strong reputation for making its players millionaires.
The day was Saturday, July 22nd, 2017, the unnamed Swedish man was sitting in his summer home playing his favourite slot while unbeknownst to him he was working towards the biggest slot win of his life. It’s interesting to note that the player was playing the Mega Fortune slot game on his mobile, a true sign of the changing times in online gaming. According to the winner, the shock was initially too much and he didn’t believe that he’d been lucky enough to make such a win.
The winner is the second Swedish player to land a progressive jackpot with the online casino, following the rare double success of Jessica C, who picked up a big win playing Siberian Storm in 2015 and won €4.3 million on the Mega Fortune game in February this year.
Commenting on the news, the CEO of Mr Green Ltd, Jesper Karrbrink expressed his happiness for the winner:
“It is absolutely amazing that one of our Swedish members at Mr Green has once again won a big Jackpot. It is the third big jackpot that has been paid to Swedish Mr Green customers in a short period of time.”
He continued: “It truly feels like we are the number one jackpot casino right now. We wish our winner all the best and it will be exciting to follow him and hear what he intends to do with the money.”
Mega Fortune is what is called a Progressive Jackpot game. Progressive jackpot games make it possible for players to land massive and potentially unlimited payouts, many of which have grabbed the headlines, and a number of those big wins have been achieved on the Mega Fortune game.
Launched by NetEnt in 2009, it is built around the theme of luxury, and features symbols representing yachts, rings, fine cigars and expensive cars, and has proved to be extremely popular with jackpot players.
The first ever Mega Fortune winner scooped a jackpot worth $5 million, and since 2009, the average jackpot win on the game has been $4.9 million. To date, the biggest-ever win was in 2013, when a player from Finland won $20 million, a total that entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest online casino game jackpot win ever.
