World Record for Betsson Online Casino Jackpot
Betsson Casino, along with its software supplier, Net Entertainment, was given the official thumbs up by the Guinness Book of World Records for a recent jackpot win at the site. In September this year, a 20 year old Norwegian player hit the progressive jackpot on Net Ent’s Mega Fortune video slot game and became the winner of a staggering €11.7 million. While it was assumed that this was the biggest payout of a slot machine ever, it took Betsson until now to get the fact officially confirmed as a world record.
Speaking about the honor, the Acting President and Chief Executive Officer of Net Entertainment, Bjorn Krantz said: “It’s great that our efforts are also recognized by the renowned Guinness World Records. We are very happy to be able to provide the most efficient pooled progressive online slot jackpot in the market to support our customers in their sales and marketing efforts.”
Huw Thomas of Betsson online casino added: “It’s great for Betsson.com to be part of the record books but even better to be acknowledged for such a huge payout.” He said that Betsson works extremely hard to deliver online entertainment with the biggest payouts and the fastest withdrawals. “It’s a tremendous accolade for the site and we’re proud to be an official Guinness World Records holder,” he said.
