NetEnt has released their jackpot statistics for 2017 and the figure is quite something. The company’s epic slot games have paid out a total of 321 jackpots which amount to an amazing €78.3 million!
Clearly, this was a good year to be a NetEnt gamer and we’re hoping that 2018 will be even better. NetEnt has four global progressive slots, which are Mega Fortune, Mega Fortune Dreams, Arabian Nights and Hall of Gods, which carry massive jackpots that keep growing until someone wins. These slots can be found on various casinos that carry NetEnt games. For example, Mega Fortune and Hall of Gods are found on Mr Green Casino.
December saw two jackpots drop from Mega Fortune Dreams, giving players a Christmas to remember. These were a staggering €3.3m, and €3.5m respectively, from mobile play. A great way to end the year! This slot has paid out a total of €30.4 million in 2017 and was actually the most popular choice of players, with the highest number of rounds played.
However, the highest jackpot won this year (and fourth-highest ever in NetEnt’s history) was a €7.5m incredible win on Hall of Gods back in June. Hall of Gods has an exciting mythology theme and features figures from Norse myth, such as Odin the father of the gods and Idun the eternally young. At the time of writing, the top jackpot was at a tasty £1,676,660. This is won through the bonus game, triggered by three or more of Thor’s hammers.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “Our games are continuing to pay out life-changing winnings to players and to be able to win them €78 million in 2017 makes us all very proud. Mega Fortune Dreams alone has paid out around €30 million, but we must not forget Mega Fortune, Arabian Night and Halls of Gods, showing there’s more than one opportunity to win a life-changing amount of money with our pooled jackpots.”
“Being able to offer players the chance to win big is what keeps them coming back and we’re over the moon that we can repay their loyalty.”
