Huge NetEnt Jackpot Hit And New Microgaming Games

Just yesterday, the hugely popular Net Entertainment online slot Mega Fortune made another millionaire. One lucky player won the €3.75 million progressive jackpot, the fourth largest jackpot awarded by the game. It has become pretty common for Mega Fortune to award millions to its players as this win comes after another €5.3M jackpot which was hit in May. However, the largest Mega Fortune jackpot ever awarded was worth an amazing €17.8 million and happened in January this year. Now, the jackpot was reset and is already at €369k and quickly rising.

Mega Fortune is a progressive slot which means that the jackpot is determined by the amount of bets placed by the players. With every real money spin played on the internet, the jackpot gets bigger and bigger until it is claimed by one lucky spinner. Given the fact that it is one of the most popular games on the internet, the jackpot can get into the seven figure numbers very quickly.

To keep with the millionaire theme, the game uses luxury symbols on the five reels and there are 25 paylines to try your luck on. While the jackpot gets most of the attention, there are also smaller prizes that are constantly awarded by this game as players get the needed matching symbols.

Microgaming launches two new slot games

This was a pretty busy week for Microgaming as the company released two new slot games and added three of its existing titles to the mobile platform. Microgaming was one of the largest software developers in the gambling industry and revolutionized it in various different ways but has since then fallen off a bit. However, the company looks determined to reclaim its top spot and has been focusing a lot recently on offering new games and on expanding its mobile platform.

One of the latest additions to its portfolio is called Sweet Harvest. It is a 5-reel online slot game with 20 paylines that can be downloaded or played in the flash-based version directly from the browser. The theme of the game is based on a man and a woman harvesting, so expect to see plenty of vegetables and fruit; perfect for this season. When the two characters meet, the player has the potential to win bigger prizes and the colorful theme is sure to keep users engaged for hours on end.

The second new title from Microgaming is Wild Catch and features 243 ways to win. This 5-reel slot game takes players on a deep sea fishing adventure and it is sadly not available for download, but only in an Instant Play version. The game has some attractive features that include Scatters, Wilds and free games.

The games we mentioned that were just added to the mobile platform are Break da Bank, Big Top and Lion’s Pride. Mobile casino players will certainly enjoy these three titles as they had a very good response amongst regular casino users. The focus on mobile gaming for some operators is well justified if we consider the mobile boom which is now taking place, with more players opting for mobile games every day.
