I can’t tell you how many people look at me with a jaded eye when I explain to them what I do for a living. Not that I am an online gambler in any way, but I write about online gambling and people say, ‘but what have you got to write about?’ I often reply…’well…the winners’; to which they ask,’ do people really win when they play online?’
Yes…they do and there have been some very big winners, with a Net Entertainment Guinness World Record being the biggest and best casino payouts ever seen online.
On the 24th September 2011, the Net Entertainment progressive jackpot slot – Mega Fortune™ was won. This was won at Betsson.com, and has been recognized officially as the largest jackpot payout ever at an online slots game, by the Guinness World Book of Records. The prize was €11,736,375, the equivalent to £10,272,600 or $15,844,900!! This prize was landed by a 20-year old Norwegian man.
In addition to this massive casino payout, on the 24th January 2012 – just five months later – another big prize was won, also on the Net Entertainment Mega Fortune™ slots. The prize money was €6,864,858 which ranks even higher than the record breaking Microgaming, Mega Moohla win of €6,374,434 on the 12th May 2009.
I have always said that Microgaming would have to keep a sharp eye out on Net Entertainment. We have to remember that the more big jackpots that are won with a brand, the more people will flock there to play. And with two massive wins, only 5 months apart, this brand is getting massive publicity – publicity that’s worth a small fortune.
This second record-breaking online slots game jackpot prize was won by a 30 year old man in Helsinki, Sweden, and is the equivalent of £5,707,230 or $8,780,151! One of the biggest surprises is the fact that the progressive jackpot prize had actually built up again, to almost £7 million by the time it was won again. This is merely evidence that more people are playing the game. They are actively looking for Net Entertainment casinos and spending their money on Mega Fortune™.
Mega Fortune™ is not the only brilliant Net Entertainment game, the brand new Jack and the Beanstalk is an absolute blast, but there are many more. The one thing we do have to remember is that not all of their slots games are linked to the PJP, but they certainly are all brilliant.
If you are looking for the best online casino payouts ever, you won’t do better than to obviously play with Net Entertainment. It is a Scandinavian brand, and both Stan James and Victor Chandler are powered by this software; both are really good websites.
Finally my famous last words are coming true, and Microgaming is going to have to up the ante if they don’t want to be pipped to the winning post by an even more winning software brand.
