Norwegian Player Hits 11 Million Jackpot

Published on: September 27, 2011 

The Mega Fortune progressive jackpot slot game from Net Entertainment created online casino history when it was hit for €11.7 million. This is the biggest jackpot hit ever. A 20 year old Norwegian became part of this history by being the recipient of the bounty and so did Betsson online casino where the hit took place.

Betsson casino has not revealed the name of the player, but all other details relating to the event have been reported in Norwegian newspapers. The winner is a student from Hordaland, who returned home in the early hours of Saturday morning after taking in a movie. Since he did not feel like calling it a day, he logged on to the online gambling portal Betsson. He found that he had 10 free spins on the Mega Fortune slot game. He usually heads straight for the Betsson sports book, but because of the free spins and the huge jackpot amount he decided to give the free spins a shoot and won a small amount. He decided to play his winnings on Mega Fortune. It took him 11 rounds before he hit the jackpot round on a €0.50 spin. And in this round he hit the biggest jackpot prize of over €11 million.

The young multi-millionaire spoke with the Betsson online casino management. He said, “This is unbelievable, I didn’t believe it and had to call my brother and a few friends. It hasn’t really sunk in yet.” Because of the shock of winning the huge amount he was unable to sleep until 6 AM. Even then he was shaking and sweating and found it impossible to sleep. He added, “I haven’t thought about what to do with the winnings. I need to try and calm down before even thinking of what I do with the money! Not even in my wildest fantasies did I ever think I would win that €11.7 million jackpot. But it has happened and I am over the moon about it.” The winner has asked for and will receive expert financial advice from professional independent consultants provided by Betsson online casino.

Mega Fortune online slot game has been lucky for Scandinavian players. Two Swedish players have won the progressive jackpot earlier. In fact the first hit after Mega Fortune was launched in January 2009 was of €3.99 million, which went to a Swedish player. And the hit previous to this in February 2011 also went to a Swedish player. That hit was for €5.3 million. Since the Mega Fortune progressive jackpot resets at a million euros, it will always create a millionaire when hit.
