The previous jackpot record of almost SEK2.5 million (€238,500) was smashed by this pay-out. Interestingly enough, this prior record was set only a week before by another player in Stockholm when the game's progressive Mega Jackpot landed.
“Our global jackpot games are continuing to break records across the globe and we’re proud to be able to bring such monumental wins to players through Mega Fortune,” said NetEnt's Chief Commercial Officer, Andy Whitworth.
“We hope to continue raising the bar with even bigger jackpots in future,” he added.
Niklas Örtbrant, Head of Online Casino at Svenska Spel Sport & Casino, said: “To break records twice in two weeks with such a significant jump from the second to first highest win is incredible and we can’t wait to see what the jackpot climbs to next time. We wish all the best to the lucky player and hope they enjoy this life-changing sum.”
Since launching in 2012, Mega Fortune has produced frequent life-changing wins for players all around the world. It's become a firm favourite among players acorss the globe, accounting for six to seven figure sums in a range of markets.
