The past couple of weeks have been quite exciting over at Svenska Spel. First, the operator paid out its biggest jackpot to date when a lucky player claimed a 2.5 million SEK (€238,500) prize on NetEnt's popular Mega Fortune slot. Just a week later, that record was smashed to bits, though, as another lucky punter from Stockholm triggered the game's Mega jackpot to the tune of SEK28 million (€2.6 million).
Two Weeks, Two Records
Niklas Örtbran, Svenska Spel Sport & Casino's Head of Online Casino was enthusiastic about these recent developments. As he explained, to break the record twice in just two weeks and for the second win to be such a big jump from the initial record is really exciting.
Örtbran extended his congratulations to the lucky player, explaining that everyone at Svenska Spel was excited to see what number the jackpot would reach before it strikes again.
History of Wins
As for NetEnt, their Mega Fortune slot has once again shown what it is that makes the game so popular with the players. Since it was first released back in 2012, the game has produced numerous six and seven-figure wins in various markets.
Players trigger the Mega Fortune jackpot round by landing three bonus wheel symbols on the first three reels on an active payline. This takes players to a new screen where they get a chance to spin the large bonus wheel with three different levels.
The first level contains only smaller cash prizes. On the second level, players can claim larger prizes and a Rapid jackpot. Those who make it to the third and final level of the wheel are guaranteed a big payout, including the possibility of winning the Major or the Mega jackpot.
To date, NetEnt's Mega Fortune has created many instant millionaires with the average jackpot payout being just shy of €4 million. The biggest single win produced by this slot came in 2013 when a lucky player from Finland claimed a €17.8 million jackpot.
