Reported in the Irish casino news recently was a world record breaking jackpot win by a gentleman from Finland and he managed to scoop a fantastic amount of nearly 18 million Euro. As we have mentioned in various articles before, the progressive jackpots such as this one in the Irish casino news are run by the casino software companies and in this case the progressive slot was “Mega Fortune” which is run by the well known Net Entertainment of NetEnt. This is not the first time that NetEnt has been in the Irish casino news for record breaking jackpot slots as we believe the previous world record of some €11 million was also on one of their slot machines. With this sort of online casino jackpot there is no need to go to Las Vegas to win big money. The winner is currently not speaking to the Irish casino news or any other media at the moment which we can completely understand, it may take some while to get used to his new wealth. Also in the Irish casino news is the fact that the UK Gambling commission is taking a look at what is called social gambling which of course includes online casinos. It seems in reports in the Irish casino news that the Commission has no problem with social online casino play as such but is more concerned about whether it could lead to a more severe problem and more importantly how casino players are protected from dishonest casino games. Although not reported in the Irish casino news, here at casinos.ie we have been involved in this for some time and we always advocate the use of one of our recommended online casinos which have the necessary checks to try to stop gambling addiction but more importantly have the checks in place to ensure fair games.
