This is the third time that a Unibet player has become a millionaire thanks to this famous online slot.
Mega Fortune currently holds the Guinness World Record for paying out the largest ever prize for an online slot machine. In January 2013, this slot awarded one lucky player an almost unbelievable €17.8 million. As recently as March 2014, the mobile version of this slot, Mega Fortune Touch™, paid out SEK1.6 million (approximately £155,000) to another lucky Swedish player.
“I thought that something was wrong. It’s insane. I’m still shaking,” said the lucky Swedish player who also wished to remain anonymous. This fortunate player placed just a SEK2.50 wager (£0.25) on one spin when he won his huge prize. All that’s know about this latest winner at the time of writing is that he is 62-years-old and the he is from a place called Karlstad. This is also the largest ever win of its kind in Sweden.
