A lucky LetsBet.com player landed a life-changing €5,984,456 (SEK 61,415,649) jackpot – and immediately had their windfall boosted by €650,000 thanks to NetEnt’s Mega Million promotion.
The total sum of more than €6.6m, which dropped on 30 July, is the biggest dividend paid out on Mega Fortune since December 2016.
Claimed by a 27-year-old Swede, the player only signed up to LetsBet.com three hours before hitting the unique double win, which came courtesy of NetEnt’s Mega Million campaign that added €650,000 to the Mega Fortune pool.
It concluded NetEnt’s €1m World Cup cash giveaway after a player from Finland previously took home €350,000 on top of a £2.7m Hall of Gods jackpot.
“I was on vacation and just felt like playing a bit,” said the shocked Mega Fortune winner. “I am not sure yet what I will use the winnings for, apart from sharing it with my closest ones and perhaps some more vacation.”
Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt Chief Product Officer, said: “Mega Million has been a huge success and we are thrilled that the final whistle has blown on our World Cup-themed campaign with the biggest Mega Fortune jackpot winner for two years.
“It is also further proof that NetEnt games are regular millionaire-makers, with this being the ninth seven-figure jackpot winner in 2018.”
