NetEnt Crown Their First Slot Millionaire Of 2017.
It was only a month or so ago that we were writing about NetEnt’s Mega Fortune Dreams slot awarding a life-changing payout to one lucky winner – and wouldn’t you just know it, the same slot has again made another slot millionaire to get NetEnt’s 2017 PR campaign off to the best possible start.
The first NetEnt jackpot of the year was awarded to a Finnish woman just after midnight on Wednesday 18 January when she landed Mega Fortune Dreams’ main bonus feature after a €1 spin. Once that had happened, the 62-year-old slot enthusiast simply watched on in open-mouthed disbelief as, one by one, the bonus wheels lined up and her pointer moved towards the central payout.
Before she could even process exactly what was going on, the screen was flashing with lights and numbers as the sum of €3.5 million began spreading out across her screen. The morning afterwards, the jackpot-holding mobile casino the winner was playing on contacted her to get the following words:
“I can tell you that we haven’t slept a wink last night. I’ve spent the night with my husband talking and going over this. It’s unbelievable. The funny thing is I’ve always had such bad luck in this game before!”
It’s the last sentence of that quote that is perhaps the most surprising, as the lucky player readily admitted she didn’t play Mega Fortune Dreams regularly. In fact, during the times she had, she’d usually ended up losing money, so it was a spur-of-the-moment decision to give the slot another try.
A couple of moments and several million euros later, however, the overjoyed winner had certainly elevated NetEnt’s long-serving jackpot slot to top of her favourite games list as she contemplated what she and her husband would do with all of their newly-acquired prize money in the coming weeks.
“We are going to take it slow and go on a small vacation that was planned ages ago, but we’ll certainly find plenty of uses for this money,” said the newly-minted Finnish millionaire, much to the disappointment of anyone who’d envisioned this 62-year-old shelling out on a brand new sports car.
While January’s slot millionaire may plan on spending her money wisely, you might handle things very differently if you ever won big – and if you’d like the opportunity to put that theory to the test, you can find Mega Fortune Dreams and a host of NetEnt jackpot slots at all of our recommended casinos.
