We’re almost halfway through the summer of 2018, so let’s see what’s happened to a few lucky individuals since the temperatures (and machines) got red hot. It’s no secret that NetEnt has tons of great jackpot games, but over the last few weeks a suspicious amount has pumped out huge cash prizes. After looking at the stats, the phrase that immediately comes to mind is, “When it rains, it pours.”
It all started back on June 12th when Mega Fortune Dreams Slots coughed up a massive pot of €4.25 million, all from a tiny €1 wager, no less. The lucky punter was playing at Unibet when their life was changed forever after successfully navigating the triggered mini game during the bonus round.
Then a week later on June 17th over at Euro Casino someone was spinning on Arabian Nights, yet again on €1 wagers, and won a “much smaller” prize of €1.4 million, which will probably still be enough loot to enable them to quit their day job. At the time NetEnt Chief Product Officer, Henrick Fagerlund stated,
We are proud to give players the chance to change their lives and enjoy such large payouts, all from just one spin. We are sure there will be many more chances for big wins over the summer as we continue to offer sizable jackpots and bonuses to our customers.
Well Henrick turned out to be 100% correct and two weeks later someone in Finland snatched a meaty €2.75 million pot courtesy of Hall of Gods Slots at Finnish-friendly operator paf.com. This time the booty was triggered by the NetEnt Mega Million System that spreads over numerous machines and operations.
Mr. Fagerlund immediately took the opportunity to brag about his prediction,
We have another example here of how NetEnt can change people’s lives and the Mega Million campaign will give us even more chances to do just that. We have had three seven-figure jackpot wins this month alone and I am confident we will see more before the end of the year. In fairness to him, these three brought the total number of millionaires they created this year to eight. Not too shabby.
