NetEnt Makes 2 Slot Millionaires In One Week On The Mega Fortune SlotsJuly 30th, 2015
2 Mega Fortune slot millionaires in one week? Great news for two players, not so good for NetEntertainment. We want to drink the coolade though, so here’s the full story.
You know how so many people say “I don’t play jackpot casino games, because I never win” ? And usually we would totally respect that.
Except this week. This week we can only say that clearly the casino gods aren’t listening to these naysayers, because we have not one, but two millionaires.
And what makes this slot winners story so much sweeter, is that both were won whilst playing on two different mobile casinos, on two different games, by two different women.
Granted, these video slots belong in the same family, but the odds of this happening are still fairly low.
But we will keep this post as reference when people ask us “yeah, ok, but you can’t win a progressive jackpot whilst playing on your mobile, only on desktop, right?”.
Wrong. So wrong. These stories just go to show that big casino wins could happen anywhere, anytime, any place.
Husband & wife team win €3.1 Million on a 0.50 bet
Technically, the account is in her name, but Hessen from Germany admits she was playing with her husband at the time, so she can’t claim the win on her own.
That said, the 23 year old could never have imagined the feeling they got when they hit the famous Mega Fortune slot jackpot.
“After seeing a Mega Fortune promotion, my husband and I decided to give the game a try after we put our children to bed – and then the impossible happened. When we saw the jackpot we jumped around!” said the happy winner.

How this big casino win happened
Hessen had signed up with Betsson casino a while back actually.
The promotion was one that Betsson like to do from time to time when the numbers on the Mega Fortune slot get interesting; a simple deposit now and get free spins.
The free spins didn’t amount to the win, but Hessen and her husband kept playing, because hey… Mega Fortune is an awesome mobile slot game.
Why not hey? And at 0.50 a spin, they could last a nice long while spinning away, hitting the wheel of fortune bonus often enough to give a thrill at the possibility of winning the jackpot prize.
The millionaire maker does it again
Mega Fortune is a fairly unpredictable jackpot casino game.
Ok, fine, all slots are unpredictable. That’s not saying much.
What we mean is that when the jackpot will hit is almost impossible to tell. Sometimes it hits at 1 or 2 million. More often it reaches about 4 to 5 million.
Once, it broke all the rules and still holds the record for the biggest ever slot jackpot win of €17.9 million back in January 2013.
So there was no reason for it to go at 3.1 million as it did this week, and certainly not at this mobile casino.
“This great win is the second multi-million award in a week! The ability to win such an amount on a mobile device really shows how one’s life can change while on the move.” Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt.
Still, Mega Fortune is one of the most popular NetEnt video slots ever since it came out in 2008 specifically because it creates more millionaires than any other casino games.
And Hessen and her husband clearly gambled at the right time, at the right place. All in a bid to spice up their evening.
Agneta wins 4.6 million on Mega Fortune Dreams
Here’s the funny thing; 3.1 million isn’t the biggest that the Mega Fortune mobile slot jackpot has ever hit.
That honour goes to a 50 year old Swede who, back in January, won 5.6 million at the Leo Vegas mobile casino.
The reason we mention this is because Agneta now holds the record for the biggest mobile jackpot win on Mega Fortune Dreams.
And the casino in question? Why Leo Vegas of course.
Seems that if jackpots and mobile are your game, Leo Vegas is where it’s at.
Wait… Mega Fortune Dreams??
Yeap. Not Mega Fortune, but it’s sister slot that came out in July 2014 to try and recapture the original glamour.
A Huge Welcome at Leo Vegas
- 20 free spins
- 200% on your first deposit
- 180 free spins
- 3 More deposit bonuses
Whilst the first sent you on your speedboat along the french riviera, Mega Fortune Dreams has you sipping champagne on your private yacht in the Caribbean.
The two slot games are remarkably similar, and both have the ability to give you millions – though Mega Fortune tends to climb a little higher, a little faster.
Still, this was something Agneta clearly wasn’t aware of, or simply didn’t care.
New to gambling, new to Leo Vegas, now retiring
The 50 year old has two full grown sons, and she’d literally only signed up to Leo Vegas two days before winning her jackpot win. Her only experience of playing on slot machines was on the ferries in her native town of Gothenburg.
“I’m in total shock. I’m going to go travelling, buy a new car and spoil my relatives a bit!” She told Leo Vegas after her win.
She was still in the process of going through her four casino deposit bonuses, when, she decided to give this glitzy jackpot slot a go.
She was betting small, and then one good win of €312 in one spin increased her budget enough that she decided to bet a bit bigger.
She started playing €3 a spin, though who knows if she had bet smaller she could have hit the jackpot anyway?
Because when she suddenly won 4.6 million, instantly her little win of 300 euros got swallowed in a sea of cash.

Will you be as lucky?
Maybe. Maybe not. That’s gambling for you.
You can’t deny that these wins are ridiculously impressive.
And just to make NetEntertainment casinos even more appealing, Mega Fortune Dreams hit again on Monday 27, giving lucky 21 year old Joakim a sweet €238,667.
Not millions, but we suspect Joakim doesn’t care.
And yes, it was at Leo Vegas again, the casino with the mobile golden touch.
“This year has been golden for players of NetEnt’s pooled Jackpot games, and the winners keep on coming. Plus, with our mobile content, more of our large jackpots are being won on the move.” Simon Hammon, CPO, NetEnt
But if only millions will do, then we would tell you to look at Microgaming’s Mega Moolah jackpot, which currently sits at 8.7 million and is the highest it’s ever been in the history of this slot.
And yes, you can play it at Leo Vegas. That’s the great thing about multi-software casinos, you can play on a variety of jackpots depending on their size and fun.
Plus you get 20 free spins when you register, without having to make a deposit. Surely that’s worth trying out.
