NetEnt’s jackpot games continue to prove that they are the largest online jackpots in the iGaming world, after making two multi-millionaires in just 24 hours.

The second incredible jackpot prize of €2,667,743.19 was won by a UK-based player on the 7th March, off a €1 spin, while playing NetEnt’s popular progressive jackpot slot Mega Fortune™ at PokerStars Casino.

The Brit spoke about the shock win, saying: “I put my hand over [the screen] because I thought, ‘I’ve got no chance of winning this, I want it to be a surprise’. It spun. When I took my hand away and saw what happened… I almost passed out. No this can’t be real.”

On the same day, NetEnt’s Mega Fortune Dreams™ paid out another huge €4,084,430 jackpot on a different gaming operator’s platform.

Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “The jackpots just keep on dropping at the moment and two in one day is a record for us. The big and frequent wins are of course why players love NetEnt jackpot games so much. I would like to congratulate The Stars Group, and PokerStars Casino for what is their biggest ever online-win payout!

Let’s hope this amazing start to 2018 continues. I look forward to seeing NetEnt’s popular jackpot games changing more lives!”
