German slots player scoops multi-million-euro jackpot on NetEnt’s Mega FortuneReading Time: 2 minutes

 

A German PokerStars Casino player has become an overnight multi-millionaire after landing a €3.5m jackpot on NetEnt’s Mega Fortune.

 

The staggering sum is the largest ever online win at PokerStars Casino and came from a deposit of just over €2 – see the moment the wheels aligned here.

Mega Fortune has now had eight jackpots of more than one million euros in 2018. The latest lucky recipient, a journalist from Lower Saxony, Germany, had arrived home from work late, at around 9pm, and decided to unwind with a Mega Fortune slots session. He soon landed his life-changing prize – while he was waiting for a pizza to cook in the oven.

“I was numb and disbelieved for a few minutes,” said the chess fan, who had the same shocked reaction from his wife when he shared the news.

They will spend the prize money on renovating their house and buying a holiday home and an SUV van. They will also put aside funds for their two children’s university fees and share some of their new-found wealth among family members.

“After breaking yet another record, NetEnt’s Mega Fortune has once again underlined its legendary status among slots players,” said Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt Chief Product Officer. “This time it has paid out the biggest cash prize in Stars’ history, with the jackpot swelling the number of Mega Fortune millionaires to eight in 2018.”

Mobile Betting Bill Fails to Progress Through New York AssemblyReading Time: 1 minute

 

Senator Joseph Addabbo’s mobile betting bill has failed to progress through the New York Assembly. The legislative session saw S17 fail to progress beyond the Assembly Standing Committee on Codes.

Addabbo tweeted that he saw no clear reason why the state could not implement mobile sports betting in 2019. Failure to do so would see the state miss out on around $75m in revenue, funding for education, and both job creation and retention.

“NY will be stuck like a disabled car on the shoulder, while we allow an illegal sports betting business in our state thrive and idly watch other neighboring states pass us up with enormous revenue gains from mobile sports betting,” Addabbo said.

Eldorado Resorts Inc., the US based casino operator, has agreed to merge with Caesars Entertainment Corp through a $17.3 billion cash and stock deal.

The deal, which is expected to be announced soon, values Caesars at close to $13 a share. The combined company’s ownership would be split roughly between Eldorado and Caesars shareholders.

An Eldorado spokesman said the company did not comment on rumours or speculation. Caesars did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The combination of the two companies would create a serious competitor to larger casino industry players, such as Las Vegas Sands Corp, Wynn Resorts Ltd and MGM Resorts International.
