Gaming systems supplier, Net Entertainment, today officially recognised a prize won on their progressive jackpot slot, Mega Fortune – on Betsson.com – as the largest jackpot payout in an online slots game by Guinness World Records.
The stupendous amount, which we hope will only lead to debauched behaviour, was a record prize of €11,736,375 – equivalent to £10,272,600 or $15,844,900. The jammy little bleeder was a Norwegian man – the luckiest 20 year old ever – scooping the prize earlier this year in September. Net Entertainment and Betsson.com were named as co-owners of the landmark payout record when it was confirmed by Guinness World Records early last month.
The Head of Betsson.com, Huw Thomas, said: “It’s great for Betsson.com to be part of the record books but even better to be acknowledged for such a huge payout. We work extremely hard to deliver online entertainment with the biggest payouts and the fastest withdrawals. It’s a tremendous accolade for the site and we’re proud to be an Official Guinness World Record Holder.”
Since its launch in 2008, Net Ent says Mega Fortune has become one of the most popular games in their portfolio. And since the win, that doesn’t look like it’ll change any time soon.
