NetEnt's Mega Fortune Crowns Another Millionaire

One lucky player made a promising start to the new year when he banked a progressive slots jackpot worth in excess of £2 million on NetEnt’s Mega Fortune game joining the wealth of other lucky punters who have taken home life-changing jackpots from this stellar slot game.

There was plenty of fanfare throughout the online casino community for the Yorkshire-based slots fan after he unlocked the main jackpot on the Mega Fortune mobile slot game, having staked just £5. As an inexperienced player, he wasn't aware of Mega Fortune's generous prize-winning potential when he logged onto Casumo to play his winning turn. Although the gamer has opted to stay anonymous for now, his £2,065,627 jackpot win has made him the talk of the iGaming world.

Another Month, Another Seven-Figure Jackpot

It was only last Christmas that the NetEnt game last hit the headlines after it paid out a record mobile slots jackpot to a Swedish player. Joining the action via ComeOn Casino, the Swede needed just a few spins to roll in a winning combination that eventually unlocked the €8.6 million (£6.55 million) progressive jackpot.

This month's Yorkshire-based winner may not have been the most seasoned player – in fact, reports state that he had only been signed up to Casumo for two weeks prior to his massive win – but that didn't stop him from loading up and playing the mobile slots game like a pro.

NetEnt's Touch platform, compatible with iOS and Android mobile devices, is noted for its excellent catalogue of video slot games (including Jack and the Beanstalk, Starburst, Gonzo's Quest and, of course, Mega Fortune) but also for its intuitive interface – in particular its simplified keypad and navigation, and full-screen text rendering, which make mobile play just as immersive and engaging as desktop.

Life-Changing Slots Win Unlocks Door to New Home

The jackpot-winning slots player told Casumo's media department that he would be using the money to buy a new house, but not before jetting off somewhere exotic to avoid the winter weather.

Commenting on the latest big money win, Casumo's Chief Marketing Officer, Hanne Aimonen, said that everyone at the site was pleased for the player and that his win was yet another testament to the site's desire to offer a world leading mobile gaming experience.

"We are thrilled for the winner of Casumo's largest ever mobile jackpot, which will be life-changing for him and his family. Casumo is a casino that offers the ultimate gaming experience and has been designed to entertain and make people smile."

Although the latest slots win will no doubt be remembered by everyone involved for a long time to come, it wasn't quite enough to eclipse the largest online win of all time.

As documented by the Guinness Book of World Records, UK player Jon Heywood is the current record holder for the biggest online slots jackpot ever, after scooping a staggering €17,879,645 (£13,209,300) while playing Microgaming's Mega Moolah on Betway Casino.
