A Swedish customer of Malta-licensed operator LeoVegas.com has scooped a €2.5m pooled jackpot from Net Entertainment.

The company said the 24 year-old won the jackpot on its popular Mega Fortune mobile game, which pools liquidity from a number of Europe’s largest online casinos. It was first launched in 2008 and has since paid out a number of significant jackpots.

Mega Fortune Touch is the current Guinness World Record holder for the largest-ever jackpot payout in an online slot game, awarding an individual €17.8m in January 2013.

The supplier’s chief product officer Simon Hammon said it was “so exciting” that the jackpot had been won by a player using a mobile device.

“Players can now become millionaires, even while on the bus or taking a walk in the park,” Hammon continued. “Congratulations to Leo Vegas and the player on this epic win.”

The player thanked LeoVegas for the win and said the money will be invested to ensure they are set for the future.

The €2.5m sum is the latest major jackpot to be paid out on a Net Ent game this year, with a Betsson customer winning €7.4m in June. The company has now paid out almost €30m in prizes in 2014.

Shares in Net Entertainment AB (Co. Data) (OMX:NETB) closed up 2.11 per cent in Stockholm Thursday, and were up a further 0.52 per cent early Friday, setting a new 52-week high of SEK195.00 per share.
