LeoVegas Player Lands €2.9 Million Jackpot in Yggdrasil's Joker Millions Slot

Joker Millions makes its first millionaire at LeoVegas Casino.

A lucky player from Norway has won €2.9 million playing the popular Joker Millions slot by Yggdrasil. The jackpot is pooled across the entire network of casinos powered by their software. Chris from Oslo was spending some quality time spinning its reels at LeoVegas on Monday, betting in increments of €1.25. The video slot is mobile friendly, so he chose to gamble on his smartphone, while waiting on his girlfriend who was shopping for apples.

The Largest Ever Jackpot on Joker Millions Slot

Yggdrasil’s game made other players rich in the past, with two major winners emerging since March 2015 when it was launched. In September, somebody scooped a prize worth €720,000 and three months later another jackpot worth €460,000 was won.

Both winners had good reasons to celebrate, but the amounts they won pale in comparison to the $2.9 million won by Chris. With this newfound fortune, he can fulfill all his dreams and a trip to the Maldives now sits at the top of the list. Once the lucky couple returns from this great vacation, Chris plans to invest the money in two apartments.

The First Progressive Jackpot by Yggdrasil Gaming

The software developer has an impressive collection of games and a handful of popular progressive jackpot slots. This however was the first game produced by them and so far the best paying video slot. Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO at Yggdrasil Gaming was quick to congratulate the winner and looks forward to other players claiming seven digit amounts.

The progressive jackpot will now be reset at a value of €2 million and is expected to pick up speed. The fact that it can be played on mobile devices and it also features an attractive base game explains its popularity among fans of the genre. As new casinos join the Yggdrasil network, progressive jackpots are expected to hit new highs and set more records.
