The latest NetEnt jackpot wins: October 2020

Published on the 2020-10-26

Just because the days are getting shorter and colder doesn’t mean that there’s been any slowdown in how many jackpots people are winning. This is because NetEnt’s online slots have been proven to serve up some stunning jackpots throughout the year. Jackpot games like Mega Fortune have earned a strong reputation for the frequency of their huge prize payouts. Plus other games like Arabian Nights have also been shown to be capable of delivering some deeply impressive jackpots. So let’s take a look at how NetEnt’s jackpot games have been transforming the lives of some very lucky gamers.

Big Arabian Nights win in Greece

October may be the month of Halloween but one gamer in Greece won a very early Christmas present. This is because the player managed to scoop up a staggering £1.2 million jackpot by playing the Arabian Nights slot game. The win was announced on 15 October and while the player wishes to remain anonymous, it is thought that they were playing the NetEnt jackpot game at the Netbet casino and bookmaker site.

The progressive jackpot is the key selling point of this slot game that uses plenty of Arabian inspired imagery and Aladdin themes. Beyond this, it is a user-friendly 5x3 slot game that features 10 paylines. With wild symbols signified by the Prince and the scatter symbol illuminated by Aladdin’s lamp, there’s plenty of ways by which gamers can win a little extra. Up to 15 respins can be triggered by getting three of these scatter symbols to line up. The game is known to have a 95.6% return to player ratio which is fairly generous among such jackpots. But it seems as though the gamer in Greece managed to make a little more than most when they played Arabian Nights. 

How Arabian Nights became such a big game

Arabian Nights already has a distinguished reputation for serving up some very impressive jackpot wins. Less than a year ago one Swedish gamer managed to pick up the €1.4 million jackpot prize by playing the NetEnt game. This came about when the player got five of the Aladdin wild symbols to line up on the free spins mode. The jackpot was struck in November 2019 while the gamer was playing at one of ComeOn’s Swedish online casino sites. 

The jackpot game was first unveiled by NetEnt in 2005. This made Arabian Nights one of the game developer’s first progressive jackpot games. Since its release it has inspired plenty more popular jackpot games from the Swedish casino gaming developer. These have included famous titles like Mega Fortune Dreams and Hall of Gods. But NetEnt has shown no sign of slowing down with plenty of new jackpot titles like Grand Spinn Superpot, Imperial Riches and Mercy of the Gods being unveiled in the past few months. 

A summer of jackpot success

Autumn has already had at least one major NetEnt jackpot winner, and it’s already shaping up to be a bumper season for the world’s gamers. This is because NetEnt has been enjoying one of its best-ever years for serving up jackpot prizes. 

This summer there was no shortage of jackpot winners of NetEnt slot games. Perhaps the biggest news came when one Stockholm gamer managed to claim an incredible €2.6 million by playing one of the brand’s jackpot games. This was reported in July 2020 and it was the largest ever win at the Svenska Spel Sport and Casino site. 

The win was claimed by playing the Mega Fortune slot game. This is another 5x3 reel jackpot slot, but this game features 25 paylines to give gamers more chances to win. What makes Mega Fortune all the more enticing is the fact that it includes no less than three progressive jackpots alongside a myriad of wilds and free spins symbols. The mega jackpot starts at a minimum of £150,000 but it pools together the additional stakes of the competing players to produce prize sums like the one won in Stockholm in July. 

What’s interesting is that this jackpot win came just days after another gamer in the same Swedish city landed another big prize worth €238,500 on the same game. This provides all of the evidence necessary for why Mega Fortune has become such a player favourite since NetEnt launched the game in 2012. 

NetEnt’s expanding jackpot catalogue

The Swedish game developer has continued in its crusade to serve up an endless stream of jackpot prizes to the world’s gaming fans. This is because all of the brand’s jackpot games have an unerring ability to hit the headlines throughout the year. What’s particularly impressive is the way in which the multi-million pound prizes  all seem to emerge from the full range of NetEnt’s jackpot games.

One gamer managed to win a staggering €6.7 million by playing the Hall of Gods game in April 2018. This massive win was claimed on a mobile, and it is thought that the gamer was playing via the LeoVegas online gaming app. What made this win all the more impressive was the fact that the player had wagered a simple €10 stake before they went on to claim the seven-figure jackpot prize. 

The jackpot win helped NetEnt to make its then-largest year for jackpot wins. This saw the Swedish developer serving up over €16 million in total prize winnings from its online slot jackpot games. But with more games being developed on a regular basis, it looks like NetEnt is giving players even more chances to win big.

Last year was the Swedish developer’s busiest year yet in terms of the production of new jackpot titles. While the public health crisis of 2020 may have gradually slowed down the development of new games, the ongoing lockdown conditions in many countries have meant that people have found gaming to be an increasingly popular source of entertainment. Plus with NetEnt’s jackpot wins providing plenty of inspiration, it seems that this autumn will see the brand’s games getting evermore popular.
