Not too long ago, one very lucky player at Gate777 hit the euro million Jackpot on the uber-popular Mega Fortune slot by NetEnt, where they left with a hefty sum of €3.3 million. That equates to just over £2.8 million.
The Mega Fortune Slot has been offered by casino Gate 777 from the very first day they opened and is well known for handing out bloody big wins. This progressive slot certainly didn’t disappoint the lucky Gate777 player when they staked €50 (approximately £42) on the 25 pay-line, 5-reel slot to then take home an incredible €3.3m. Gate777 even recorded the winning roll so if you fancy seeing how it all unfolded, head over to the casino and give it a spin. Whilst this wasn’t the largest Mega Fortune jackpot win, it was the biggest for Gate777 players!
Zachi Duani, Head of Affiliates for Gate777 said that the win has made them all very happy as they are a relatively young casino and this shows they’re growing. He went on to say that they were extremely proud to be a part of the win and they hope for the same success and joy for all of their players.
Similarly, Gate777’s CEO, Ronna Shilon, continued by saying how thrilled they are when any of their players have a fantastic experience with them, particularly when they win. She continued by saying they as a company work hard to bring their players the best table and slot games in the industry and they are looking forward to more and more Gate777 winning players in the future.
Gate777 is an air travel-themed online and mobile gaming platform and was inspired by some of the world’s best airport casinos. The online casino is managed by White Hat Gaming Limited, offers multiple currencies and over 800 games.
Even though this lucky player struck it rich with their €3.3m jackpot win, it’s considerably lower than the average Mega Fortune jackpot win which is generally estimated at €4m or £3.43m. Mega Fortune is known for its massive payouts since it is a progressive jackpot that is played at 100s of casinos.
The Mega Fortune Jackpot once paid out a whopping €17,861,813 in January 2013 to a Finnish player, which was recorded as the largest progressive online jackpot payout. That was up until that that Megah Moolah mega-jackpot finally toppled with a new record-setting €18,915,872.81 (£16,129,245.59) prize which landed on Friday, September 28 2018. But back to Mega Fortune and their win, of over €17.8m, this actually broke a previous record it had set back in September 2011 when a player from Norway won in excess of €11.7m (£10.05m) at Betsson Casino.
2015 saw Mega Moolah take the overall record when Jon Heywood, a British soldier took home a jackpot worth €13,000 (£11,161) more.
In saying that, Mega Fortune is still getting a number of winners through the door. A slot spinner from Sweden landed €8.6m (£7.38m) in November 2015 and a local British player took home an epic sum of €7.4m (£6.35m) in December 2016.
There have been more than five Mega Fortune jackpot winners over the last 12 months all winning on average roughly €3.4m (£2.92m) and we haven’t even spoken about all of the millionaires that have been made by the newer slot by NetEnt, Mega Fortune Dreams.
2018 saw a Swedish gamer win in excess of €4m on Mega Fortune Dreams at Unibet Casino. This was less than 12 months after another Swede, bet £1 to then win €4.6m (£3.95m) through Casumo Casino. Why this is interesting is due to Casumo Casino being in serious decline at that point.
