Winning the €7.8 million jackpot on Joker Millions, the lucky player from Sweden broke the record for the largest-ever progressive jackpot awarded by Yggdrasil.
A lucky player from Sweden has landed a massive jackpot on Yggdrasil's popular Joker Millions progressive slot to the tune of 80,000,000 SEK (around €7.8 million). This is the biggest jackpot in Yggdrasil's history and it was paid on LeoVegas Casino.
Turning Cents Into Millions
As is often the case with these huge jackpots, the lucky winner was spinning away on just 50 SEK (€0.50) a spin. They were playing on LeoVegas mobile platform as well, proving that when your luck is in, it makes no difference whether you play from your PC, mobile phone, or tablet.
The CEO of Yggdrasil Fredrik Elmqvist congratulated the lucky player and was very enthusiastic about the huge win, especially since it came so close to Christmas. His excitement was shared by James Ford, the Head of Casino at LeoVegas, who explained the entire team was keeping a close eye on the Joker Millions jackpot for some time now.
Giving Players What They Want
Offering slots with massive progressive jackpots is a trademark of all major casino game providers and Yggdrasil joined the fray in 2015 with Joker Millions, their very first progressive jackpot game. As expected, the game has experienced quite a success with the players and operators alike, attracting a lot of attention.
Joker Millions is a fairly straightforward slot with no special bonus features other than winning combinations freezing on the screen and awarding a re-spin. To get to the jackpot game, players need to land at least one Joker symbol on each of the five reels. Once inside the jackpot feature, the goal is to fill the screen with Jokers (15 of them) to win the main progressive, which is exactly what the lucky Swedish player did.
Since 2015, Yggdrasil Gaming has paid €26.7 million in progressive jackpots. The search for the next Joker Millions jackpot winner has already started and the amount up for grabs has already climbed up to €2.5 million.
