- A lucky players strikes gold at Mr Green casino winning €3.6 million Mega Fortune jackpot
- NetEnt’s famous progressive slot continues to change lives and make unsuspecting millionaires
Earlier this week, Mr Green Casino shared an exciting piece of news on its official Twitter, announcing that a lucky player has won the Mega Fortune jackpot to the tune of $4.2 million (€3.6 million).
Although we have no further information at this point in time, it is always good to hear about online casino players winning big, life-changing amounts, as that’s what a visit to the online casino is all about – hitting big and not looking back.
Creating millionaires since 2009
In the world of progressive slots, NetEnt and Microgaming are the undisputed leaders. Microgaming’s Mega Moolah is probably one of, if not the best-known progressive slot around, but NetEnt keeps up the pace with its own creations. Mega Fortune is one of them.
First launched in 2009, this slot caught attention of the players across the globe, featuring symbols representing the life of luxury: wads of cash, expensive cars, yachts, rings, watches, and fine cigars.
Seeing how NetEnt is present at hundreds of online casinos out there, it is no wonder that the Mega Fortune progressive jackpot is one of the fastest growing jackpots around, and as the potential for wins increases, so does the number of players eyeing that big score.
The first ever winner won $5 million (€4.3 million), which was a very impressive amount, and over the years an average Mega Fortune jackpot winner took home around $4.9 million (€4.2 million).
The biggest-ever win came in 2013, when a lucky player from Finland hit the lucky spin with the jackpot standing at $20 million (€17.8 million). For a while, this number was in the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest online jackpot ever to be won. Later on Mega Moolah took the prestigious title.
Turning pennies into millions
Although we have no information about the recent Mr Green winner, the odds are he wasn’t playing big bets. Looking at the past winners, most of them were placing wagers under $1 when the lucky spin came around. This stands to reason, as there are way more small time players than high rollers at online casinos.
Whoever this lucky person may be, we at Casinopedia extend our congratulations, with the message to all of you out there reading this – never stop believing, you could be next!
