Tuesday August 30, 2011  : NET ENTERTAINMENT JACKPOT SETS A NEW INTERNET GAMBLING RECORD
 
The Mega Fortune progressive jackpot is now over Euro 9 million and counting
 
Net Entertainment licensees offering the Mega Fortune progressive slot are probably experiencing a surge in business following the news this week that the jackpot has reached Euro 9 037 200 and continues to climb toward the Euro 10 million mark.
 
The previous record for an internet casino jackpot was broken in May 2009, when River Belle reported a hit on its Microgaming-powered Mega Moolah jackpot of Euro 6.3 million, won by Greek online punter GeorgiosM.
 
The record prior to that massive win was also held by Mega Moolah – a $5.5 million hit by a Finnish player at Blackjack Ballroom.
 
Mega Fortune has paid out a total of over Euro 13 million in jackpots over the past year, but the jackpot has never before reached these heights.
