Guinness Record for Largest Online Casino Jackpot Broken – €17,861,813 Paid Out
After months of tension and excitement, the Guinness Book of World Records top online jackpot was broken – and won – by a Finnish online slot machine player.
The Mega Fortune game has been attracting attention from the mainstream media since it passed the €10,000,000 mark months ago.
The previous record was €11 million, also set by NetEnt, the same 3D game developer behind Mega Fortune. The world record jackpot was broken at Paf.com.
The lucky slot spinner, who is said to be a 40 year old Helsinki male, isn’t talking to the media – yet.
”This is the second time that Net Entertainment’s games give a winner the world’s largest global online jackpot. The high liquidity that Net Entertainment’s progressive slots offers, result in very rapid jackpot buildup, and is a very good tool for the operators to attract players.
We congratulate the winner and Paf to this big win, and look forward to hopefully making many more players millionaires in the future.”, says Per Eriksson, CEO at Net Entertainment.
Since online gambling began in the late 1990’s, the jackpots are growing and growing. These days, an online jackpot is just as newsworthy – and big – as a Las Vegas casino jackpot.
Unlike land based casinos, our Helsinki slot spinner played from the comfort of his home. One of these days, the record breaker will come from a mobile device – and we will hear about a player who won millions of Euros while waiting for a bus or while waiting on line at a supermarket.
What strange mobile world full of jackpots we live in. More news is expected shortly – stay tuned!
