A Swedish player at LeoVegas.com managed to set the record of hitting €7,832,262.00 playing Yggdrasil’s progressive jackpot slot Joker Millions. Interestingly, the player has hit the jackpot while he was playing the game on his mobile phone.
How Did It All Happen and When?
Not every day people hit a progressive jackpot and not every day someone hits it whilst playing on their mobile phones. A LeoVegas.com player, though, logged in in his favourite online casino, placed a wager of less than €0.50, more precisely 50.00 SEK, and started spinning Joker Millions’ reels. Not long after, he became the luckiest guy in the world, winning a little less than €8 million. The winner hit his 80,000,000.00 SEK jackpot late on a Friday night.
What this player didn’t know is that hitting this jackpot, he set the record for the game. Cherry AB, Yggdrasil’s parent company claims that the progressive jackpot has awarded over €26.9 million in cash since the game was first released in 2015, but says that this €7,832,262.00 prize is the highest payout to this date.
What Did Fredrik Elmqvist, Yggdrasil’s Chief Executive Officer Say?
Elmqvist confirmed that the jackpot prize won by the Swedish player was the biggest one ever and that it indeed set a record, although Joker Millions has been rewarding players with huge prizes for years. He was excited to see that that the player hit the jackpot playing on a mobile device, and won such an amazing sum of money playing one of their own slots. He was particularly thrilled that all this happened a month before Christmas.
He adds that Joker Millions is Yggdrasil’s first ever slot with a progressive jackpot attached to it, released in 2015, which has gained popularity and success both among players and operators. Of course, he encourages Yggdrasil fans not to be worried, since the jackpot prize pool will build itself up again, as more and more operators are continuously joining Yggdrasil’s global progressive jackpot network. In fact, at the time we’re writing this, Joker Million’s progressive jackpot has gotten up, close to €2 million, so there is hope, indeed.
How Did LeoVegas React?
LeoVegas.com’s James Ford was super thrilled that the jackpot was hit by a player playing at their casino site and adds that when someone hits the jackpot, there is always excitement. Since he was monitoring this particular progressive jackpot closely, he says that he’s really happy it was hit at LeoVegas.com and offers his huge congrats to the lucky winner.
