Just three weeks ago, in our last report, we revealed how the Progressive Jackpot for a NetEnt slot called Mega Fortune had exceeded €4,000,000 (approximately £3,418,796). We are now pleased to inform you that it has just been won by a lucky player when it had reached £4,534,859 (which is approximately €5,305,080).

At this stage, very little is known about the winner, but further details should emerge over the coming days. This is proving to be one of the luckiest slots in the online gambling industry. Although perhaps not for the millions of other players who didn't win after adding their fair share of cash to this accumulating prize pool.

This huge win is just another one that can be added to a growing list of other multi-million pound winners that have been produced by this very same slot machine. Mega Fortune has paid out more than €30 million (£25.6 million) in progressive jackpot prize money since it was launched and the prize pool has already managed to climb back up to £1,150,000 because of the thousands of wagers being placed on this slot every single minute by players from around the world.

The seed amount for this Mega Jackpot never drops below €/£100,000, so as soon as this recent jackpot was won, the prize pool automatically reset to this amount. Speaking about the record-breaking jackpot win of €17.8 million (approximately £15.22 million) back in January of 2013, the Chief Executive Officer for NetEnt, Per Eriksson released the following statement,

"This is our second world record jackpot in online gambling. The large liquidity within the slots with progressive jackpots enables the rapid growth of these jackpots, which is great news for the operators. We want to congratulate the winner of this record jackpot and hope to turn many more players into millionaires in the future," which is exactly what this slot has managed to do again in May 2013.

It is still not clear which casino this recent jackpot winner was playing at or indeed how much this player was betting per spin, but as soon as all of these details are released, we will update you with the facts.

Net Entertainment (otherwise known as NetEnt) is a leading Swedish-based online casino software provider.

Mega Fortune is an online slot machine that was developed by the Swedish-based Net Entertainment (NetEnt). This particular slot has received a great deal of attention over the past year, especially in January 2013 when it paid out a record-breaking €17.8 million to one lucky player from Finland.

This slot also held the previous jackpot record of €11.7 million. If you have access to a NetEnt powered online casino, it might be worth checking out this game right now because the prize pool (which has been climbing since January) has recently exceeded €4,000,000.00. Unless you are playing from the US, most other players shouldn't have too many problems trying to locate this slot.

Mega Fortune has a luxurious lifestyle theme. It has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines and it can be launched instantly on your computer. There are in fact three different progressive jackpots to play for when you launch this slot, but the largest of all is the Mega Jackpot. The other two lower jackpots include the Major Jackpot and the Rapid Jackpot.

The main prize pool on this slot can only be won from within a randomly triggered jackpot bonus round. This bonus feature is triggered when three of the bonus symbols appear on consecutive reels starting from left to right. As soon as this happens, you will be whisked away to a second screen to play for one of these jackpots.

If you make it right into the centre of the rotating jackpot wheel, you will win the Mega Jackpot. You can advance to the centre by landing on arrows pointing inwards and hopefully with all three attempts you will make it to the centre. The jackpot will then be paid out instantly.

At the time of writing, this is the largest Progressive Jackpot available from Net Entertainment's collection of jackpot slots. If you enjoy playing on this exciting slot, you may also want to check out several other progressive jackpot slots from NetEnt such as Hall of Gods, Arabian Nights, Geisha Wonders and Super Lucky Frog.

The prize pools for Arabian Nights and Hall of Gods are both currently worth more than €1,000,000.00 and you can find both of these slots in more than 40 secure NetEnt powered casinos. Players must be over the age of 18 to play on any of these slots in the real cash mode. More information about similar great games can be found by visiting a top rated online gaming guide.
