Anyone who is a regular visitor to any of the most popular casinos will be familiar with jackpot slots. Much like a regular slot in design; where most games offer players the opportunity to win hundreds or thousands of euros (depending, of course, upon your initial wager), with jackpot slots, available winnings are that much higher. Pooled jackpots, in particular, offer those playing them the chance to secure life-changing sums of money.
HOW DO POOLED JACKPOTS WORK?
As players spin the reels on these particular games- like, for example Net Entertainment’s Hall of Gods or Microgaming’s Mega Moolah, a percentage of their wager is added to the prize fund, which increases all the time until hit. And this weekend, two players struck it very lucky indeed, scooping prize pools of 4.5 million and 8.5 million in all.
MEGA FORTUNE JACKPOT WINS
At Maria Casino- part of the Unibet Group, one Swedish player in his 40’s secured a huge win on the evening of the 24th November. Winning 4,531,301 from a meagre 2.15 spin, he landed the mega jackpot on NetEnt’s Mega Fortune Dreams slot.
Less than a week later, another Swede made it two in a row, this time winning another jackpot slot from the same provider- Mega Fortune. His win? Made the first look positively paltry. No details have been released on his identity just yet, but what we do know is that he scooped a phenomenal win- over 8.5million at Folkeautomaten. Normally a haunt for Norwegian players, Folkeautomaten has recently started to accrue a cult following among Swedish players, and this latest win is unlikely to buck that trend.
WHICH JACKPOT WILL BE HIT NEXT?
The question is, now the mega jackpots at Mega Fortune and Mega Fortune Dreams have been hit, which jackpot will be next? The jackpots are, of course, governed by random number generators so a players likelihood of winning or losing come purely down to chance, but there are sites you can visit which, based on average prize funds and the average days between hits, predict the probability of the jackpot being won. A quick scour on these sites and it’s plain to see that NetEnt’s Hall of Gods looks ripe for the picking- sitting at 7.5million at the time of writing.
