The hype around NetEnt's Hall of God huge progressive jackpot has been building up for a while as the number kept growing with each passing day. Finally, a few days ago, just as the amount exceeded the astonishing €7.5 million, the magic happened as one lucky player hit the lucky spin at Folkenautomaten.com, an online casino owned and operated by ComeOn!
The Jackpot Goes to Norway
The exact jackpot amount of €7,525,932 went to a 47-year old player from Norway who decided to try if Norse gods were finally ready to let go of their prized possession. As it turned out, they were, and the Norwegian had his life completely changed in a matter of seconds, becoming another NetEnt-made multimillionaire.
It goes without saying that his win left many players disappointed, as more and more players around the globe were getting involved in the jackpot chase as the number increased. However, there is no reason to despair, as the next huge win is always just around the corner.
Millionaires in the Making
NetEnt is one of the leading progressive jackpot games operators, and just during the past year, they paid out more than €54 million in various jackpots. As for the Hall of Gods slot, since its launch in 2012, the game has paid out €57 million to the jackpot winners, and in the last year alone, players took home just around €20.5 million.
Prior to the latest big hit, a player from the UK bagged a similar amount playing another NetEnt's hit game, Mega Fortune Dreams. The win happened in December 2016, and the lucky winner became richer to the tune of €7.4 million.
Chief Product Officer at NetEnt Simon Hammon expressed his excitement in the PR accompanying the win, emphasizing the fact this was one of the biggest single jackpots won on a NetEnt game. Apart from the already mentioned Hall of Gods and Mega Fortune Dreams, the company also offers big jackpot games such as Arabian Nights and Mega Fortune.
