7 Jan 2018

If you’re a regular reader at Jackpot.co.uk then you’ll know that we’re quite big fans of NetEnt and the games that they deliver to players.

Their innovation and continued drive to provide new and exciting games keeps them at the top of their game and we were interested to read the news of the €78 million they paid out in 2017 in progressive jackpots alone!

NetEnt Wins Just In Time For Christmas

Two players landed two progressive jackpots in December on the Mega Fortune Dreams and between them took home a massive €6.8 million. Each player had spun in their life changing wins on mobile devices and took home €3.3m and €3.5m respectively.

This game alone paid out a tidy €30.4 million last year and was the most popular of the progressive jackpot games. It boasted the highest number of unique players and rounds played overall.

The biggest jackpot of 2017 was paid out on Hall of Gods back and that lucky player netted themselves a prize pot of £7.5m [read more here]. This was the fourth-highest payout ever in the history of NetEnt.

NetEnt Happy With The Wins

The Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, Henrik Fagerlund, was keen to share how pleased the company are to have paid out so much.

Our games are continuing to pay out life-changing winnings to players and to be able to win them €78 million in 2017 makes us all very proud.

Mega Fortune Dreams alone has paid out around €30 million, but we must not forget Mega Fortune, Arabian Night and Halls of Gods, showing there’s more than one opportunity to win a life-changing amount of money with our pooled jackpots.

Being able to offer players the chance to win big is what keeps them coming back and we’re over the moon that we can repay their loyalty.

We’re certainly excited to see what 2018 has to offer from NetEnt, both in the new games released and the jackpots to be won.
