Player lands a whopping €3.3M jackpot win – on a 50¢ bet

It was a random Thursday in August 2019. Like on any other day, there were so many slots to play, yet so little time. Especially for me – as the chief Gate777 captain pilot, I had a 100% first-class flight to do.

That day, while some players went for classic slots, others went for new high-variance high-thrill titles. Some played games at our “ground” casino while others played on the go. It was just another day of picking up bonuses, spinning the slot reels, and waiting for them to create satisfying combinations.

As different players picked different titles, one player, based in the UK, picked Mega Fortune. If only he knew what would come next! He placed a bet of just 50¢ – next thing he knew he won €3.3M! Hard to believe one’s eyes when that happens. Hard to believe one’s ears when the announcement comes through.

So, how did it happen?

For starters, Mega Fortune is NetEnt’s Guinness record breaking progressive video jackpot game. Perhaps our winner player had heard of the fame of Mega Fortune, perhaps not. This slot is known to have created several multi-millionaires in the last several years. It got a lot of press – even achieved Guinness record breaking status thanks to some incredibly huge wins. Millions and millions of euros.

With 5 reels, 25 paylines, and so many bonus features, Mega Fortune has a luxurious, rich theme and a super fun gameplay. Playing Mega Fortune costs between 25 cents and 50 euros a spin. Our winner had only bet 50¢. Think about it for a second – how far does 50p get you today!? Not far, not at all – unless you are a player who won millions of euros!

Inside information and tips

As much as I would love to turn on the cabin mic and announce the name of the winner, I’m not allowed to. The player wants to remain anonymous and of course, as your Captain, I respect that. But I can tell you this much: he played in pounds and won 3.17 million pounds. He placed 27 spins until he won the Jackpot.

Feeling inspired to spin the reels of this rightfully famed slot? Here are some pro tips. Make sure to study the paytable to understand which symbol pays the most. This will help you to have a better grasp of the gameplay.

Also, remember that the bet amount affects the size of the jackpot. That being said, if you don’t feel comfortable placing high bets, or if it’s not within your budget, you don’t need to do it in order to win. Most players have a budget in their mind, and they keep track of it as they spin the reels. For others, the pleasure is in high rolling.

Let me also remind you that Mega Fortune isn’t the only slot that may give out huge Jackpot wins. Microgaming’s Mega Moolah is another big name in the Jackpot Hall of Fame. You can also check out Hall of Gods and Arabian Nights – both by NetEnt.

Best of luck!
