If you enjoy reading about the online casino gamblers who hit big progressive jackpots you will likely have heard about Netent many times. Netent isn’t as well known as many other casino software developers and networks but if you look at a list of the largest slots jackpots ever hit online you will notice that Netent is well represented. Playtech and Real Time Gaming may be more common online but the jackpots offered by Netent are much better in my eyes. I will just be going over the Netent jackpots and games in this post but you can check here for a list of Netent casinos online today. Netent was created in 1996 by a live casino company in Scandinavia. They have been specializing in progressive jackpots but they also rank highly in regards to software quality, game variety and unique features.
Historic Netent Jackpot – Mega Fortune
One of the most popular Netent casino games is Mega Fortune. This slot game is responsible for many of the largest online casino jackpots ever hit. In the beginning of 2013 one lucky gambler won a €17,860,868 progressive jackpot playing this game. That is roughly $23.3 million (USD) or £14 million. Before this record setting hit the highest was only €11.7.
Current Netent Game Jackpots
Most progressive jackpots at online casinos using the Netent software are for slot machines but Caribbean Stud also has a decent jackpot. The thing I like most of their jackpot is how quickly they grow. Jackpots at other casinos can take twice as long to grow to a certain amount when compare to Netent’s. Here is a list of some of the current progressive jackpots at Netent casinos:
- Mega Fortune – $1,500,000
- Arabian Nights – $1,700,000
- Hall of Gods – $25,000
- Caribbean Stud Poker – $320,000
- Super Frog Bonus – $284,000
- Mega Joker – $24,000
- Gold Rush – $140,000
- Icy Wonders – $17,000
- Cash Bomb – $51,000
This list can be misleading though. Netent casino games like Mega Fortune do not have just a single jackpot. There are actually three distinct jackpots for this slot game. The Mega jackpot is the one in the news all of the time but there is a Major jackpot that generally ranges from €10,000 to €100,000. Obviously this jackpot is hit on a regular basis but there is a third that seems to get hit multiple times per day. This is the Mega Fortune Rapid jackpot. I just checked and the last several hits averaged around €400. This may not seem like much of a jackpot but when it hasn’t been hit in a while it can change the house edge on the game.
There are other casino games that have three jackpots like Mega Fortune. I enjoy this better than simple jackpot games because it gives everyone a chance to win.
Just to give you an idea of how fast these Netent progressive jackpots grow here is a story. When the €17.8 million jackpot was hit it only took 24 days for the jackpot to reach over €3 million. Usually there is a much longer time span between hits but after the €17.8 hit there was a massive increase in the number of people playing this game.
