Online Slots Payout Of $8,780,151 Second Biggest EverFebruary 6, 2012 3:48 pm
Last September, a 20-year old Norwegian man became a Guinness World Records holder after scooping the biggest jackpot in online casino history of €11,736,375 ($15,844,900).
A few short months later, and a thirty year old Finnish man from Helsink has now won the second highest online jackpot in history worth €6,864,858 ($8,780,151), while also playing the progressive Mega Fortune jackpot.
The Mega Fortune progressive jackpot was launched in 2008, and has proven a huge draw for the Net Entertainment network ever since. In addition, the 5-reel, 25-payline slot has created some of the biggest online casino winners in history, including Joao from Portugal who won the €2,169,000 Jackpot after placing just a €1 bet.
In 2011 alone, the slot paid out €26 million in prizes, and now 2012’s first Mega Fortune jackpot has been released after a four months build-up. The life-changing jackpot was eventually hit by an unnamed Finnish man on January 18th while playing at Paf.com, and commenting on the huge payout, the site’s PR manager Anders Sims said:
“Winning a massive €6,864,858 from our casino is a matter of huge pride for every one here, and we would like to congratulate our lucky winner for such an outstanding win on Paf.com.”
The non-profit making organizations, Paf, was established in the 1960’s and launched its online gaming service back in 1999. The organization has continued supporting good causes ever since, with its many benefactors including such charities as Save The Children and The Red Cross. Commenting on the latest Mega Fortune jackpot payout, Anders Sims, said:
“We are a gaming company that was established with the sole purpose of generating money for good causes and we have already donated €160 million over the years. It’s a real honour for us that such a huge jackpot has been won on Paf.com.”
