    The Mega Fortune jackpot just dropped from €5.5 million+ to around €460K so it seems someone was pretty lucky today.

    My guess is that the jackpot was won by a Scandinavian player at one of the Betsson brands. That's how it usually goes down.

    bit strange that that is won at the same time as the new Mega Fortune Dreams is released.

    I'll have to get one of the tin hats off Dunover

    Totally random! RANDOM!

    Seriously, i've been getting emails this week saying "Mega Jackpot is about to drop".

    100 % certainty it would happen before the release of Mega Fortune Dreams.

    I'm pretty sure that if you wanted to rig the progressives you would do it the other way around :)

    The longer all those contributed player funds stay in the bank and earn interest, the better. I'm also pretty sure that NetEnt would have rather see this progressive go higher than the previous World Record one to gain extra PR on that.

    So pretty safe to assume that NetEnt are not rigging their games to promote a new release.

    But this new Mega Fortune wouldn't get played while the other jackpot was higher, now that is gone this will get all the players from that game. the money still builds up in their account.

    Is this set to give even higher jackpots so they get a bigger pot in their bank and a new world record? in which case they would want as many players on this as possible.

    In a parallel universe where a company listed on the stock exchange would be willing to put everything on the line to promote a new game release you would be right :)

    Without wishing to start a collection of tin hats even I will admit the timing is staggering. An incredible coincidence. Utterly perfect timing really. Release new JP and have a big winner from the previous one to show off as well. Must be nice.

    Congrats to the winner anyway. Whoever they are.

    Tre Angeli and Black Gold isn't too far away from where you are at. So that should only set you back about €2.50 for a pint of Cisk.

    I posted this yesterday

    So I think they tried to get Mega Fortune Dreams up yesterday, but they couldn't figure out how to do it without removing the old Mega Fortune, which is no longer available at casinos that have MF Dreams. Removing old MF when the jackpot was over 5.5 million euros and replacing it with MFD seeding at 400k euro would have made some customers pretty angry.

    Since the old MF was growing almost at rate of 1 million euros a week, it was going to be won in all likelihood soon anyway, they decided to wait until it was won, so that they could take the old MF down, or until they could figure out how to add MFD without having to take MF down.

    I just noticed that Mega Fortune Dreams went live so I guess what you wrote yesterday is correct. I had no idea they were going to pull the old Mega Fortune slot when they launched the Mega Fortune Dreams one.

    I can't understand why they wouldn't just keep both games since players who enjoyed the old Mega Fortune slot now potentially have to move over to another casino.

    I imagined that it would have been more profitable to keep them both up, and in addition to that, make them share the jackpot pool, so that it would grow even faster. Having different bet sizes should not have been issue for sharing the jackpot pool, of the 4 Mega Moolah pool games, some have max bet of only 6 currency when other have 25 currency.

    But NetEnt and casinos must have more data and more motivation to do more in-depth market research and calculations than I do, so I guess there is some point in what they did.

    Hi all,

    I can now safely confirm the winner was at Unibet. A press release will follow shortly.
    And, as previously mentioned, you can all remove your tin hats again since the plan was indeed all along to remove mega fortune and put up mega fortune dreams as soon as the jackpot was won.

    If the plan was not to feed the tin foil hatters then it would probably have been a good idea to announce this plan ahead of the jackpot being hit. The way this played out is probably the worst possible scenario from a perspective of a player who might think games are being rigged.

    I knew it was about to pop.. I was playing at Betsson yesterday and i was a millimeter away from hitting the last arrow, had close calls before but this almost gave me a heartattack as it looked as if it was going to hit
