Mega Fortune Dreams Slot pays 4 Million Progressive JackpotNetEnt is stealing the spotlight from Microgaming today. Both are universally-renowned developers of digital gambling content; both featuring a famous, millionaire-making progressive jackpot slot machine. And while it’s often Microgaming’s Mega Moolah that’s making all the headlines, NetEnt’s Mega Fortune progressive is giving its rival a run for their money; lots and lots of money!

Its was confirmed this week that NetEnt’s Mega Fortune Dreams paid out a tidy sum of €4,084,430.35 on Wednesday, March 7. This marks the second time in 2018 NetEnt in celebrating a new lucky millionaire in its midst.

Mega Fortune Dreams Slot Pays €4M

The fortunate winner, hailing from Sweden, was spinning the reels of NetEnt’s Mega Fortune Dreams last week when the enormous multi-million progressive jackpot was struck. The player’s identity remains anonymous, but we do know that he/she was playing the game at Unibet Casino when the jackpot was hit.

Confirmation of the win came directly from one of NetEnt’s highest ranking executives, Chief Product Officer Henrik Fagerlund. “At NetEnt, this is what we do: thrilling entertainment,” he says.

“We’re delighted that Mega Fortune Dreams has created yet another multimillionaire,” continues Fagerlund. “The game is a real favorite, and we hope 2018 continues to be a great year for more and more lucky players!”

On January 23, another lucky player became an instant millionaire on the Mega Fortune progressive jackpot. That winner was playing the original Mega Fortune Slot release, not the luxury-themed Dreams edition, but the progressive jackpot is the same, linked across all Mega Fortune variations. That UK player scooped a life-altering €2,553,604.67.

Mega Fortune vs. Mega Moolah

Microgaming Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot SlotThese two multi-million progressive jackpots have a lot in common. For example, they each feature a scaling series of progressive jackpots that can be won; three for NetEnt, four for Microgaming. They each deliver their jackpots at random, triggering a 3-tier wheel that must spin its way to the central wheel, and land on the ‘mega’ jackpot position, to strike. They also each come in multiple themes and variable reel-sets to play on.

NetEnt’s Mega Fortune Progressive can be won on three variants. There’s the original Mega Fortune Slot, the Mega Fortune Dreams, and Mega Fortune Touch (same as original, but specifically for mobile users). Microgaming’s Mega Moolah is available on five games; the original safari-themed Mega Moolah (3-reel and 5-reel editions available), Mega Moolah Isis, Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, and Mega Moolah Summertime.

Both have paid out similar amounts of cash in the last decade. This latest multi-million progressive jackpot release is #44 for NetEnt. Microgaming’s latest strike, just one day later on March 8 for $4.4M, marked #46 for that brand. The Mega Fortune averages about €4 million ($4.94m) every 10 weeks. The Mega Moolah averages $5 million (€4.04m) every 9 weeks.

The biggest difference between these games is the jackpot seed. Each time the Mega Fortune or Mega Fortune Dreams Slot jackpot is won, it re-seeds as €250,000. Microgaming, on the other hand, re-seeds its Mega Moolah jackpot at a whopping $1,000,000. As such, every winner of the Microgaming ‘Millionaire Maker‘ is guaranteed at least 7-figure payout.
