EUR 11.7 million win recognized by the famous book of records
An official recognition has arrived this week from the Guinness World Records that the EUR11.7 million prize won on Net Entertainment’s progressive jackpot slot Mega Fortune by a Betsson punter represents the largest jackpot payout ever in an online slot.
To remind the readers, the record jackpot was hit by a young Norwegian back in Sept. 2011. When it was confirmed by Guinness World Records, Net Entertainment and Betsson online casino were named as co-owners of the landmark payout record.
This highly popular progressive online slot, Mega Fortune, was also lucrative last year, when it paid out over EUR26 million to players around the world.
According to the head of Betsson, Huw Thomas, “It’s great for Betsson.com to be part of the record books but even better to be acknowledged for such a huge payout. It’s a tremendous accolade for the site and we’re proud to be an official Guinness World Record Holder.”
