All online casino players have that one dream: hitting the big jackpot. The big jackpot is not just wishful thinking or fantasy; it is actually possible to land one of them when you are at an online casino. There are progressive jackpot games available, and NetEnt has a good selection of these – we have discussed them in an earlier section.

NetEnt progressive jackpots are increasingly popular nowadays because more and more people are hitting them quite regularly. Just in 2016 January alone, there were 3 NetEnt jackpot winners, each with wins in millions of Euros.

On this page we talk about:

NetEnt Casinos With The Most Winners

Are NetEnt Jackpots Fair?

Two questions come to mind when we read about players hitting massive NetEnt jackpots with such regularity:

  • Are these jackpots are fair?
  • Is it just some kind of hype on the part of the software provider to boost its image?

To address the fairness issue, all NetEnt games are fair.

  • The company uses legitimate random number generators (RNGs) in all games where fairness may be an issue.
  • The outcome of a spin or the deal of a hand is a machine generated outcome, not something that you or I can control.
  • NetEnt has been audited and certified for fairness by iTech Labs, an internationally known testing and certification agency.
  • It is also accredited by eCOGRA, which has issued it a certificate of fairness.

Coming to the hype issue; it is not hype, because the company does not need that kind of hype. This is a company that has been in the casino software business – and at the top of the pile all the time – for 20 whole years. The credibility of the brand is enough to get new operators to want to sign up. And there is also the company’s policy of signing up only with reputed and clean brands.

Biggest NetEnt Winners in History

In recent times, NetEnt is the software provider with the most number of big jackpot winners. In our section on NetEnt jackpots we have already listed the 3 most recent winners of big NetEnt progressive jackpots. Here are the 5 biggest NetEnt jackpot winners in the history of online casino gambling.

  • €17.8 million: This is the biggest amount won so far on a NetEnt progressive jackpot. It was won by a player from Finland in January 2013. The game he won it on was Mega Fortune, playing at Paf casino. For this player in his 40s, it was ‘the’ dream come true; on 20th January 2013 he placed a mere 25 cents bet while playing Mega Fortune. The rest, as the saying goes, is history.
  • €11.7 million: This was the amount that a player won on the Mega Fortune progressive jackpot in 2011. It was the month of September and this student from the Hordaland community in Norway decided to spend some time playing at the Betsson online casino after a night out at the movies. He played the Mega Fortune slot and the result was a €11.7 million win. Of course, he couldn’t sleep till the morning, so big was the shock! Anybody can win a NetEnt jackpot, and this is another classic example of this saying.
  • €8.6 million: This is currently the record for the highest win via mobile. The player who won this massive jackpot was Alexander, a 30-year old from Stockholm, Sweden. He won this while playing Mega Fortune TouchTM at ComeOn casino from his mobile device in December 2015.  The best part is, he won this from a bet that was less than €1.50. What was even more sensational about this win, from the company’s point of view, was that this amount meant players had won over €20 million at NetEnt casinos in a period of 9 days.
  • €7.8 million: This was the amount that a player won while playing Hall of Gods. The win came about in April 2015 and was scored by a Norwegian player. The player was playing Hall of Gods at the Betsson online casino when he scored the win. This is the record for the highest win ever recorded on the Hall of Gods progressive jackpot game from NetEnt.
  • €7.5 million: This was the amount a player from Sweden’s western parts won while playing Hall of Gods, a NetEnt progressive jackpot. The winner prefers to remain anonymous and is in his early-30s. Early in the evening on 4th December, 2015, this player sat down and funded his Betsson casino account with about €12. He got down to playing Hall of Gods with an initial bet of €0.20.
