After a night at the movies, a man from Norway returned home and began playing on an online gaming site to pass the time. When the gaming novice logged into his gaming account, something immediately caught his attention: the gaming company was offering 10 free spins to play with. Moments later, he was a multi-millionaire, landing £8.3million within minutes.
Thinking he had nothing to lose, the man used the free spins – and moments later, he won a small amount cash. He decided to use the cash he’d won to spin on Mega Fortune, a popular jackpot slot game known as “the million machine” due to the typically enormous size of its jackpots.

That’s when he landed the game’s mega jackpot prize, which stood at £8.3million.
“I couldn’t believe it. The first thing I did was call my brother and some friends,” the ordinary-guy-turned millionaire, who wishes to remain anonymous, told a local newspaper. “Not in my wildest dreams had I imagined that I would land the jackpot, but it’s happened. I’m thrilled,” he added.
A similar jackpot slot, Mega Fortune Dreams, inspired by the success of Mega Fortune, currently holds close to £1million. That amount increases daily and can drop any second.
