NetEnt, the leading digital entertainment company, has made history on its Mega Fortune Touch slot by awarding an €8.6m jackpot – the largest ever via mobile.
The huge prize was won on ComeOn Casino’s mobile website from a bet of less than €1.50, turning one lucky 30-year-old from Sweden into a multi-millionaire in an instant.
The news comes hot on the heels of a €4.5m jackpot which fell on Mega Fortune Dreams with Unibet late in November.
Alexander, 30, from Stockholm, said: “I was totally speechless and couldn’t believe what was happening. It was late and my wife had already gone to bed, but I had to wake her up and celebrate.
“I’m going to lay low to begin with, but I’ll make sure my mortgage is paid and treat myself to some exciting holidays. It will probably be difficult to avoid buying a new car!”
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “NetEnt’s games excite, entertain and reward our players and it’s fantastic to break another record with this jackpot won via mobile. Our games have paid out over €13m in jackpots in just over a week – the perfect early Christmas present.”
