The first progressive jackpot winner on a NetEnt slot this January!

The first progressive jackpot winner on a NetEnt slot this January!

18+ only. Terms & conditions apply.
Starting off our Friday on the right foot, we want to give you a burst of luck and positivity for the weekend because one extremely lucky player from the UK got very lucky this January. Sometimes January can be a bit of a tough month in terms of keeping those positive thoughts and affirmations, but when you notice that other people have managed to get lucky, it can be more of a booster for you. Hopefully you have had some luck already this January on UK casino sites, perhaps you have been playing your usual slot game and you had an unexpected Bonus round that got you an attractive coin win, or maybe you are this lucky player of which we speak, and you hit the jackpot on a top NetEnt slot! The trick is to stay positive no matter what, and to keep your hopes high, just like your standards!

The UK based player who hit the jackpot this January wishes to remain anonymous, but they had only signed up to this casino a few days before giving those slots some spins and inevitably hitting one of the big progressive jackpots! It’s completely understandable how some players would wish to remain anonymous after having had such a big win, you don’t necessarily want the attention because it can be slightly worrying when strangers and friends hear about your win without you informing them yet. This UK player will most likely announce it to their loved ones all in due course. Getting back to the real details now, we all want to know how they won, what they won, and especially which slot game this was so that we can get a few spins in, although we could actually wait a little while so the pot fills up nicely again! Calm yourself down, we will get into it right away but remember these progressive jackpots always fill up nicely leaving enough cash for all of us casino players to get our hands on!

The slot game which was exuding winning affect was one of our all-time favourites, NetEnt’s Mega Fortune! This is a progressive slot, meaning with every spin that players make, will go towards the jackpot, eventually filling it up to a massive sum of money. The lucky UK player scooped up a life changing £2.6 million. Where would you even begin with that amount of money flashing before your eyes on your reels?! It feels exciting enough having triggered the jackpot bonus rounds in this game, let alone actually winning, that is a feeling we have yet to experience, but maybe one of you have and can relate to how this player is feeling. The Mega Fortune jackpot was won at 20:03 GMT on the 23rd of January 2018, what an absolutely incredible way to start the year! As usual when there has been such a fantastic win on their slots, the Chief Product Officer at NetEnt likes to say a few words:
“ What a great start to the year it’s been for the lucky winner and we’re so pleased that we’ve been able to play a part in his life-changing moment. Mega Fortune is a long time favourite with NetEnt players, so it’s no surprise to see it claim the first winner of 2018 and we hope it continues to be a lucky year for everyone who has a spin!”
