Betsson Casino Awards €3M Slots Jackpot
The online casino slots designed by acclaimed systems designer Net Entertainment are really smoking this year. A recent jackpot awarded to one very lucky member of Betsson Casino paid out over €3 million. Combined with the software company’s other high-paying online slots throughout the course of the last twelve months, Net Entertainment’s progressive mega-jackpots alone have awarded more than €30 million to slots players around the globe.
The latest magnanimous jackpot was released by the progressive Mega Fortune online slot machine at Betsson Casino. One perfect spin of the reels will forever change the life of one casino member, who currently remains anonymous, to the tune of €3,144,038.62; the currency equivalent of USD $3.9 million, or GBP £2.5 million.
“We are thrilled to see one of our most popular games make yet another instant millionaire,” boasted an exuberant Per Eriksson, Chief Executive of Net Entertainment. “To witness someone’s life changed by such a huge payout will never wear off.”
Eriksson went on to celebrate the lucky player’s life-altering victory by saying, “We wish all the best to our latest winner and look forward to congratulating our next jackpot winner soon.”
The Mega Fortune Progressive Slot at Betsson Casino and other online casinos that license software through Net Entertainment has awarded a staggering €25 million in the last twelve months, including an astounding €11.7 million jackpot payout in September of 2011.
A progressive jackpot slot machine does not payout prizes in the same fashion as traditional online slots. Every time money is inserted into the machine and the reels are spun, a small percentage of the credits played goes towards the progressive growth of the jackpot. That money continues to build up until, eventually, a player strikes just the right combination on the reels to release the full progressive jackpot.
When a progressive jackpot is paid, the majority of the prize money is awarded to the lucky player, while a small portion stays in the slots virtual hopper to seed the growth of a new progressive jackpot. For example, the jackpot may start at €10,000, thus as much as €10,000 may remain in the slot machine. But what’s €10,000 to an instant multi-millionaire?
The Progressive Mega Fortune Slot by Net Entertainment is a 5-reel, 25-payline slot with a flair for the dramatic side of the rich and famous lifestyle. Its symbols feature such affluent items as gold jewelry, luxury cars, exorbitant yachts, exotic cigars, etc. Scatter symbols can trigger bonus rounds, free spins and multipliers to award higher prizes; often the best shot at releasing the online slot’s inordinate jackpot.
Net Entertainment has been developing and licensing premium online gaming systems since the company was first launched in 1996 by a leading off-line casino operator out of Scandinavia. The Mega Fortune Progressive Slot, as well as many of Net Entertainment’s other popular casino games, can be found at one of more than 50 online casinos, including leading brands Betsson Casino, BetSafe Casino, InterWetten Casino, NordicBet Casino, Sky Vegas, Sporting Bet, Victor Chandler and many more.
