Wednesday September 7, 2011 : Megafortune all set to create a new internet gambling record
When the jackpot on Net Entertainment's progressive slot Megafortune is hit, some lucky online player will become an instant multi-millionaire; in just a week the jackpot has grown from Euro 9 037 200 to more than Euro 10 million…and counting.
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 13.5 million in jackpots over the past year, but the jackpot has never before reached these heights.
