Leo Vegas Congratulates Dual Mega Fortune Progressive Slots Winners

Like many of you, I’ve been an avid fan of mobile slots for years now, and have never once come close to winning a life-altering amount of money. I’ve hit some decent wins over the years – several hundred here, a few thousand there, but striking a progressive slots jackpot? Not me.

Even so, I’m always delighted to hear when some lucky player strikes it rich, because it reinforces the knowledge that I could just as easily become the focus of a story like the one I’m about to share with you.

This particular story, however, was doubly exciting, as not one – but two – members of the popular Leo Vegas mobile casino struck the famous Mega Fortune progressive jackpot in a very shot period of time. One winner is a big deal, but two in the same month? That’s something special.

Dual Winners of Mega Fortune

Mega Fortune Progressive Slots Strikes Twice at Leo Vegas Mobile Casino

Each of the winners were from Sweden, each playing at Leo Vegas on their mobile device, and both were incredibly shocked to have won such a large sum of money on NetEnt‘s Mega Fortune. Neither of them struck the top-tier progressive – Mega Fortune comes with three tiers, the Mega, Major and Rapid – which would have been worth a lot more, but there were no complaints about that.

The first winner collected the Major Jackpot, worth £100,000. The Swede chose to remain anonymous, but he told Leo Vegas that he was relaxing at home after a long day’s work, playing the operator’s mobile casino app at the time. He was astounded when the jackpot was struck on a £5 spin of the reels.

The second winner, who revealed himself as ‘Martin’, had a much more interesting tale to tell when casino representatives contacted him for comment. As it turns out, Martin’s bankroll was down to almost nothing – just £0.18 as a matter of fact. For that reason, he didn’t even intend to play in the mobile casino for real money.

Martin honestly believed that he was in Practice Mode when the reels spun their magic, striking the progressive slots’ jackpot. Instead of winning a mass of play-money coins, Martin had actually wagered his last £0.18, unleashing a phenomenal £60,000 prize.

Who knew unintentionally spending a few coins on the slots could be such a lucrative accident?

Big Mega Fortune Progressive Slots Jackpot

As for Mega Fortune’s big, million-dollar progressive – the Mega jackpot – that prize was actually struck this month, as well.

It happened on the evening of Friday, September 16, just before one lucky Norwegian member of a NetEnt casino (the exact site was never named) was going to bed. The next thing he knew, he was staring at a €4,865,566 jackpot.

The winner said he was in so much shock that he wasn’t convinced, and had to stare at the screen, and his new 7-figure account balance, for quite some time before believing what had just happened.

According to statistics, the Mega Fortune’s largest progressive strikes, on average, every 11 weeks, paying about €4.16 million each time. But sometimes, it takes a bit longer, and that’s when the real magic happens.

NetEnt’s Mega Fortune actually held the world record for largest progressive slots jackpot ever paid for more than two years. On January 20, 2013, an anonymous player at Paf Casino was award €17,860,868. The new world record jackpot was won on October 6, 2015 by a British soldier named Jon Heywood, who scooped €18k more – €17,879,645 to be exact – playing Microgaming‘s Mega Moolah mobile slots at Betway Casino.
