NetEnt Slots Create Two Multi-Millionaires in One Week
October 31, 2013

In October 2013, two of NetEnt’s most famous online slot machines, including Mega Fortune and Hall of Gods, both created two new multi-millionaire jackpot winners. “Yet again one of Net Entertainment’s games has delivered a life-changing jackpot. The significance of progressive jackpots within the online gaming industry continues to grow and this win further enhances their importance in player acquisition for operators,” said NetEnt’s CEO, Per Eriksson.

This slot has paid out such huge prizes on several occasions over the past 12 months and it even made progressive jackpot history back in January 2013 when it paid out a Guinness world-record-breaking €17.8 million in one go to a lucky Finnish player. It then paid out a further €5.3 million jackpot to one lucky player in May, over at BetVictor Casino.

Another one of NetEnt’s Progressive Jackpots has been rapidly climbing over the past few months on a slot machine called Hall of Gods and less than five days after the €3.2 million jackpot on Mega Fortune was won, an even bigger prize worth €6.4 million was won from this Norse mythology themed slot machine.

“It’s fantastic to see the high liquidity going through our progressive jackpot slots, and the high frequency of huge jackpot fallouts it offers,” said Mr Eriksson. He then went on to say, “Net Entertainment would like to take this opportunity to congratulate BetVictor and its Scottish player to this life changing payout, and it’s very nice to see that our progressive jackpots are well received by the UK player base, which is a key market for us.”

This huge prize was awarded to a Scottish player at BetVictor Casino, a top UK online casino, and it isn’t the first time this year that this slot has been in the spotlight just like Mega Fortune. Back in April 2013, one lucky player scooped the progressive jackpot on this slot when it had reached €6.7 million.

These two online slots from NetEnt are without a doubt two of the most famous slots available anywhere online today. They can be found in more than 50 of the most impressive online casinos such as Mr Green Casino, Betsson Casino, Casino Luck, Vera & John Casino, Stan James Casino, Unibet Casino, ComeOn Casino, Next Casino and SportingBet Casino, and also at various other fully licensed online casinos.
