NetEnt Pay Out Big Jackpot On Mega Fortune Slot
June 22, 2018
Some people take a dim view of slot games. They imagine that they’re unreliable, or that the promised payout is never going to emerge. It’s surprising how common these views are, especially given how easily disproved they are.
In fact, when it comes to online slot jackpots, it seems that barely a day passes without another big winner being announced. So it is no surprise that Stockholm-based developer NetEnt have announced another huge jackpot payout to a slots fan.
NetEnt’s Mega Fortune slot game has always been popular, thanks to its smooth design, and characteristic ease of use. However, it is now set to be more popular than ever thanks to the payout it has delivered for a dedicated fan of the game.
In May 2018, a Swedish player using the LeoVegas casino site won a massive €3.8 million prize on the Mega Fortune slot game.
Given the size of the payout, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the stake laid by the player must have been pretty huge as well— but you’re in for a shock. The total stake that was able to produce a payout of that size? €4.80 is all it took.
If you previously thought that slot games can only be won by high rollers who pay a premium to improve their chances of winning a big prize, this news should give you pause. Just €4.80 was enough to return €3.8 million to the lucky player. An amount so high the player can consider going to work optional for the rest of their lives.
As this case shows, slot game developers such as NetEnt take their product seriously. As impressive as the latest jackpot is, it’s nothing new for NetEnt.
It is the fifth multi-million Euro jackpot payout they have awarded this year, with a total payout of €19.8 million in prizes thus far. Given that it’s only June, it’s worth wondering just how much more NetEnt could pay in the final six months of the year!
It’s also worth noting that when jackpots such as these are won, it’s good news for the entire industry thanks to the improvement in consumer confidence. The games are heavily regulated to ensure fairness to the player, and if a jackpot is announced, someone will win it.
NetEnt have been a particularly reputable source of casino games since their foundation of 20 years ago. All slot game makers are, however, held to the same high standards. Players should, therefore, feel reassured by news of such substantial payouts proving the validity of these games.
So with NetEnt awarding its fifth multi-million Euro payout of 2018, it’s fair to say that this year is looking to be a positive one for the slot game industry and developers. Not only is this good news for the casinos and developers, but it’s extremely good news for the most important component of this sector too: the players.
