NetEntertainment recently congratulated an extremely fortunate progressive jackpot winner who netted himself a life-changing €17.8 million while playing on a progressive jackpot slot machine called Mega Fortune. This lucky 40-year-old player from Helsinki, Finland, was playing at a cross-platform gambling portal called PAF (Play Among Friends) when he hit the jackpot, which had been climbing for several months.

“This win is completely off the charts for these kinds of games. The whole gaming world has been holding its breath during this fall and winter, while the jackpot has just kept on growing. As this jackpot was pooled, which means that it is shared by several gaming companies, we are naturally very happy about the fact that the jackpot was again won by one of our customers. Paf players seem to have an incredibly good flow at the moment,” said the head of press and public relations for the Play Among Friends Casino, Anders Sims.

Mega Fortune is an online slot machine that was developed by a Swedish-based software company called Net Entertainment (NetEnt). This 5 reeled slot machine is classed as having a luxury theme and it is based on people living the highlife, which is what this lucky player is no doubt doing right now. The exact amount that he won was €17,861,813. This exact same slot machine now holds the record for the paying out the largest ever progressive jackpot to an online gambler. It also once paid out €11.7 million to another lucky player and in February 2013, it t was also in the news when it paid out €5.3 million to another lucky player.

The Chief Executive Officer for NetEnt, Per Eriksson, said at the time, “This is our second world record jackpot in online gaming. The large liquidity within the slots with progressive jackpots enables the rapid growth of these jackpots, which is great news for the operators. We want to congratulate the winner of this record jackpot and hope to turn many more players into millionaires in the future.”

There is no need to install any software onto your computer to play on this elegant looking slot machine. It can be accessed instantly in your web browser at more than 40 different online casinos, many of which accept UK based players. You can even practice on this slot in the free play demo mode before launching it in the real cash mode.

Mega Fortune has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines and there are three different jackpots up for grabs. The lowest of the three jackpots is called the Rapid Jackpot. The second highest jackpot is the Major Jackpot and the top prize on this slot is called the Mega Jackpot. When three of the bonus symbols appear in consecutive order from left to right, the jackpot bonus round is instantly triggered where you will get the chance to play for one of these prizes. All you need to do is make it to the centre of the wheel to win the Mega Progressive Jackpot, which is what the lucky player from Finland (and several other players) have managed to do.
