With all the excitement about the latest Mega Moolah jackpot win, the win on Mega Fortune almost went by unnoticed. Almost. Here are the details.
€3.5 Million Windfall
When everyone was watching the Mega Moolah jackpot becoming bigger and bigger and finally fall, few noticed that around the same time the Mega Fortune jackpot, NetEnt’s most popular progressive jackpot game, also reset its value.
It’s taken a few days, but we finally learned that the jackpot had indeed been won and a €3.5 million windfall has gone to a journalist in Germany. The lucky winner had apparently come home from work late in the evening. Deciding to unwind whilst a pizza was cooking in the oven, he logged into his PokerStars account and tried his luck on Mega Fortune.
His stake set at about €2.50, he managed to trigger the free spins and after only two spins the bonus wheel made an appearance and three arrows led him to claim the mega jackpot of nearly €3.5 million.
Disbelief and joy
Needless to say, he could barely belief his luck, staring at the screen in an attempt to comprehend what just happened. He told his wife, who was just as surprised. When the reality of the win had finally sunk in, the two divulged their plans of what to do with the unexpected win.
The winner will be buying a new SUV, and he and his wife are planning on some renovations around their house. A holiday home is also in the cards and some of the money will go into the education of their two children. Family members will also benefit from the windfall.
The 8th millionaire 2018
Mega Fortune is one of the most popular massive jackpots out there and so it comes as no surprise that the latest winner is already the 8th millionaire the game has created this year. That’s almost one millionaire per month.
Right now, the jackpot is back at just over €1.1 million. If you’re after bigger fish, you can always try your luck on Hall of Gods, which sits at €3.3 million at the moment, or go for Mega Moolah, which is back up to €4.3 million.
