Swedish online casino games developer Net Entertainment has just paid out the biggest online slots jackpot EVER on Mega Fortune.

It is the second time that Net Entertainment has broken the record for the largest online slots jackpot with its Mega Fortune game, after a 20-year old Norwegian won €11.7m playing Mega Fortune on Betsson.com in Sep 2011.

This time a 40-year old man from Helsinki was playing the game on Sunday on Paf.com.

He bagged €17.8m playing Mega Fortune, a progressive jackpot and part of Net Entertainment’s jackpot network, which smashed the previous world record by more than €6m.

“This is the second time that Net Entertainment’s games give a winner the world’s largest global online jackpot,” said Net Entertainment CEO Per Eriksson. “The high liquidity that Net Entertainment’s progressive slots offers, result in very rapid jackpot build-up, and is a very good tool for the operators to attract players.

“We congratulate the winner and Paf to this big win, and look forward to hopefully making many more players millionaires in the future.”

Anders Sims, head of press and PR at Paf, added: “This win is completely off the charts for these kinds of games. The whole gaming world has been holding its breath during this fall and winter, while the jackpot has just kept on growing.

“This win is the crowning glory of online slots game jackpots, and the prize sum of €17.8m will be paid out tax-free into the player’s account.”

In 2012, 2 other players won jackpots of €6.9m and €8.6m playing at Paf.com.

“Since we want to spread the joy for the winner, we recommend that winners seek counselling on what to do with their windfalls and that their identities remain hidden,” said Paf CEO Anders Ingves. “We recommend that big jackpot winners take a break from playing!”
