    So the winner in his interview says "I'm still waiting to tell my wife" .. So he's having the interview before he gets round to doing that ? and the last paragraph all about controlling gambling and being careful - really ? All his own words of course.

    Congratulations but a bit weird lol

    Hello everyone,

    I didn't have the opportunity to post about our jackpot winner earlier so I'm taking advantage of lockinlove thread to do so. In particular, I'd like to share with you some moments.

    I was getting out of a meeting a few minutes after the jackpot hit, and I saw pretty much half of the company staring at the TV casino reports, mixed between "There must be a bug in the report" and "Did a player hit a jackpot or something?". Asking what was up, I looked at the games results and it took me a few seconds to understand the huge negative amount for a day that was only just starting. And then the Game Manager came into the room and confirmed "Yep, the report is correct, we got a 2.2 million pound win half an hour ago. Mega Fortune. I'm gonna call NetEnt to confirm that was the jackpot."

    Oh, the huge adrenaline kick. Our first jackpot winner. Well, not exactly the first one, but the first who had won over 100 thousand. But you don't want to get too excited before you get confirmation from the provider because you don't want to be disappointed. All the managers go back to their PCs and make their checks of the player account under every possible angle to be sure everything is legit; responsible limits, game sessions... once everything has been checked, you keep looking at the player account just to make sure it really exists; a guy really registered a few days ago, made a few deposits, moved to Mega Fortune and hit the jackpot.

    NetEnt confirms the jackpot hit and the message spreads in the office. Everyone has gone back to work but it's hard to work with the excitement and you can hear people talking about it in every corner of the office.

    We're so happy about it, both for him and for us. Obviously for us it's a huge publicity opportunity - only a few months after opening the UK market, having a UK player hitting the jackpot sends the message we exactly want to send: UK, here we are.

    Our CEO (Alexandre) tells us he wants to call the player and talk to him in person; it's not every day you have the chance to tell someone "No sir, there is no mistake, you really did hit the £2.2 jackpot".

    And so he did and he asked the player for an interview, to which he agreed upon the condition that we stick to his words. Alex interviewed him - I believe it was in the middle of the day and indeed at that moment the wife didn't know about it. Our Content Manager transcribed the audio into a proper interview news format, then we sent it to the player for validation, and he sent us back the final version, which is the one you can see You must register/login in order to see the link..

    So yes, it is the actual exact interview words of the player that you can see in the news, although it is posted with a few days of delay - for translation and also to prepare the graphic assets, the press release...

    I do guess the wife knows by now :)

    Regards

    Would be pretty cool if he came to Meister Meet!

    Moral of the story is don't gamble.

    Every jackpot winner I've read about has either just opened a account or randomly played the game not knowing about the jackpot.

    I'll await the day for the following interview

    "I've been playing for 20yrs, bashing this beast daily I am thousands of pounds down at least but I knew one day I would hit it"

    Instead we get

    "I was sitting at home my wife was cooking my dinner, I thought lets sign up to a casino and deposit £10 you never know....5 spins in BOOOM it landed. Prove anyone can win"

    Just one thing missing here - "I didn't realise what had happened at first. It was only an hour later when I showed the phone to my friend that he told me I'd won the progressive jackpot"..

    talking of jackpots. i managed to get onto jackpot king trigger.

    to my suprise i climbed the full ladder to the "progressive jackpot". WOOOHOOO i said, ive won it.....NOPE. was then some spinning wheel type thing with the jackpot as one symbol and load of x3000 your bet options. I thought hey if i dont win it least get big win and it landed on x300 i think which was a absolute joke.

    has anyone ever won the jackpot king jackpot, always sitting at 1million+
