€11.7 Million Mega Fortune Progressive Jackpot Won

The Mega Fortune progressive jackpot was won on Saturday by a Norwegian student based in Hordaland – the jackpot amount was an incredible €11.7 million.

The jackpot was won on Saturday morning (24th of September) and he decided to play at Betsson.com after coming back from the cinema. Speaking of the life-changing win, the student said he “couldn’t believe it”. He went on to say:

“This is unbelievable, I didn’t believe it and had to call my brother and a few friends……It hasn´t really sunk in yet. I couldn´t sleep until 06:00am due to the shock! I woke up at 07.00 again. It was just impossible to sleep, and I am shaking and sweating. I haven´t thought about what to do with the winnings. I need to try and calm down before even thinking of what I do with the money!”

The player went to his bedroom after coming back from the cinema and found free spins in his Betsson Casino account. He said he usually plays at Betsson’s Sportsbook but saw the huge jackpot amount and thought “Yeah! Let’s give the free spins a shot and see what happens”. He then said it was a “shocking experience when €11.7m dropped” before his eyes – he said this with a huge smile on his face.

He went to say that not even in his “wildest fantasies” did he ever think he would win the huge €11.7 million jackpot. He did say he was “over the moon” (who wouldn’t be?!) but had asked Betsson for expert financial advice from professional independent consultants. I doubt he’ll be studying in the near future.

The lucky Norwegian student found 10 free spins on Mega Fortune and won 46 Norwegian Kronor. He then used these winning for another 11 rounds playing at €0.50 a spin till he won the Mega Fortune jackpot.
