There’s no October omen for this very lucky £3.5 million jackpot winner!

Published by Thisbe Savva, 2018-10-16

This year seems to have brought casino players quite a bit of luck, there has been 7 jackpot wins for NetEnt’s Mega Fortune slot so far, and lucky number 8 has just appeared on our radar. This is the story of a very lucky German player who managed to make his October an even better one by hitting the jackpot! This time of year can usually be quite difficult for many of us, Christmas being just around the corner you feel the purse strings wanting to tighten and yet you keep on spending as it is gift buying season. Well, lucky for some this player ended up making all of his dreams come true by playing on the Mega Fortune jackpot slot one chilly October evening.

Mega Fortune has currently had 8 jackpot wins over one million pounds in 2018, and the latest has just come from this player from Germany. He had arrived home as usual from a day of work around 9pm and decided to relax and unwind with a few spins on one of his favourite slot games and this just happened to be Mega Fortune. With a pizza in the oven cooking away and an itch to play, he decided to spin with the small amount of £2 and this completely changed his life forever winning a massive amount of £3.5 million! Let’s hope he took the pizza out of the oven and wasn’t in too much shocked to turn the oven off!

One minute you are having your normal after-work evening, and the next you can call yourself a millionaire.

The winner told the casino in which he was playing that he was ‘numb and disbelieved for a few minutes”. We can only imagine that, it must be a very odd and surreal experience to win a jackpot like that. One minute you are having your normal after-work evening, and the next you can call yourself a millionaire. The player and his wife decided that they would put the money to good use by renovating their house, buying a holiday home and buying an SUV van that they had been wanting for some time. They said that they will also be putting aside some of the funds for their two children’s university fees and share some of it with family members! It sounds like this money has definitely gone to some well-deserving people.

Henrik Fagerlund the Chief Product Officer of NetEnt said a few words about this breaking win on one of their games. “After breaking yet another record, NetEnt’s Mega Fortune has once again underlined its legendary status among slot players. This time it has paid out the biggest cash prize in Stars’ history with the jackpot swelling the number of Mega Fortune millionaires to eight in 2018.” Winning the jackpot is definitely a life changing event, you have to be prepared to be rational and clever with whatever amount you win. Playing jackpot slots such as Mega Fortune give players that little extra chance of winning something a little bit more exciting, but you must also be prepared for if it does happen!
