A German PokerStars Casino player has become an overnight multi-millionaire after landing a €3.5m jackpot on NetEnt’s Mega Fortune.

 

The staggering sum is the largest ever online win at PokerStars Casino and came from a deposit of just over €2 – see the moment the wheels aligned here.

Mega Fortune has now had eight jackpots of more than one million euros in 2018. The latest lucky recipient, a journalist from Lower Saxony, Germany, had arrived home from work late, at around 9pm, and decided to unwind with a Mega Fortune slots session. He soon landed his life-changing prize – while he was waiting for a pizza to cook in the oven.

“I was numb and disbelieved for a few minutes,” said the chess fan, who had the same shocked reaction from his wife when he shared the news.

They will spend the prize money on renovating their house and buying a holiday home and an SUV van. They will also put aside funds for their two children’s university fees and share some of their new-found wealth among family members.

“After breaking yet another record, NetEnt’s Mega Fortune has once again underlined its legendary status among slots players,” said Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt Chief Product Officer. “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.”

NetEnt is set to add to its branded game hall of fame with the addition of its latest blockbuster music-themed title.

Living legend Ozzy Osbourne, who has sold more than 100m albums as a solo artist and the lead vocalist in Black Sabbath, is set to be a star performer in NetEnt’s licensed slots portfolio when the game launches.

Featuring imagery and vocals from the instantly-recognisable Osbourne, it adds to the NetEnt Rocks family of games; Guns n’ Roses™, Jimi HendrixTM and Motörhead™, all huge hits in the company’s growing branded back catalogue.

Osbourne, known as The Prince of Darkness, first rose to prominence with heavy metal band Black Sabbath in the 1970s and has remained one of the world’s most iconic musicians ever since.

Ozzy expanded his fanbase after appearing as himself in reality TV sensation, The Osbournes, alongside wife Sharon and children Kelly and Jack.

“Rock stars don’t come much bigger, better known, or charismatic than Ozzy Osbourne,” says Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Game Products.

“Thanks to his larger-than-life personality and outstanding contribution to music, Ozzy has developed a loyal and passionate following over the past 50 years – we can’t wait to bring this to the reels for players to enjoy.”

The deal was brokered by Ozzy Osbourne’s merchandising and brand management partner, Global Merchandising Services.

“NetEnt are the market leaders in their field and we’re incredibly excited to add another of our artists to the exciting NetEnt Rocks family of games,” said Barry Drinkwater, Chairman of Global Merchandising Services.
