A Swedish player has won almost €3m on NetEnt’s Mega Fortune slot while playing on the Malta-licensed casino site Casumo.com. 

The man in question won a €2,971,469.49 jackpot while playing the Mega Fortune game with his partner. 

"The Bonus Reel was spinning, and suddenly saw a lot of numbers flashing up," he recalled. "I felt a shiver down my spine and just felt that something incredible was happening.”

He becomes the latest player to win a life-changing jackpot via NetEnt. In May one lucky Londoner won a €2.9m prize playing Mega Fortune Dreams on LeoVegas, after betting just £20.

Simon Hammon, chief product officer at NetEnt, said: “We are always delighted to see users win big on our slots, and we’d like to extend our congratulations to this latest winner. 

“NetEnt slots are designed to deliver market-leading entertainment to all those who play, and it is fantastic to see our players win life-changing sums of money doing what they love.”

Earlier this year in January, a UK-based Casumo player scooped a sum of almost €2.7m on the Mega Fortune game.

Shares in NetEnt AB (Co. Data) (STO:NET-B) were trading up 1.16 per cent at SEK83.05 per share in Stockholm earlier Monday.
