Massive Netent Jackpot Won By Norwegian Online Punter

Mega Fortune progressive slot delivers again – this time Euro 4.9 million

NetEnt's progressive slot Mega Fortune has delivered another instant millionaire, this one an anonymous Norwegian online punter wagering on the website.
The 20-something punter was enjoying a little slot action before going to bed when his life changed with a NOK 45 million (Euro 4.9 million) jackpot, NetEnt reports in a press statement.
The stunned player at first celebrated what he thought was a NOK 45,000 win, but then realised that it was considerably larger than that.
"I was unsure at first if it was true, but it has gradually dawned on me how much I've won," he said this week. "I'll build a house with the money, but otherwise want to just carry on as normal."
The lucky player is the second Mega Fortune multi-millionaire to be created so far this year; a UK player enjoyed a Euro 2.7 million windfall in the UK in January.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
