Yggdrasil Gaming is proud to announce that one lucky player managed to win a stunning €5.1 million jackpot this week while playing the company’s popular progressive jackpot slot Empire Fortune.
The lucky player from Norway grabbed €5,197,198 while playing the game on his mobile device, setting a new record when it comes to the jackpot pool. Since its launch in 2015, the game paid out substantial sums of money on several occasions, while the record was set over Christmas holidays last year when one fortunate player hit a jackpot of €3.3 million.
As its name suggests, Yggdrasil’s five-reel video slot with 20 paylines, promises lots of riches and treasures to those lucky enough. Feature-rich, the game boasts top-notch graphics and exquisite soundtrack.
Hold Feature, Free Spins Mode and Jackpot Wheel are there to help the players increase their winnings, with a multiplier of up to 10x in play.
There are three jackpots to win, with the Empire Jackpot being the most lucrative one. Apart from the jackpots, this high variance release offers lots of rewards. The game shares a progressive jackpot with another popular title, Joker Millions.
Chief Executive Officer at Yggdrasil Fredrik Elmqvist said the company was very excited one of their players had managed to win a record-breaking jackpot. He added Yggdrasil’s progressive jackpots were so popular because of the engaging base game keeping the customers happy.
Elmqvist emphasized the fact that the Yggdrasil’s market-leading slots, including Empire Fortune, were enjoyed by an ever-growing number of players and stated that with the expansion of the customer base another big win would come very soon.
The Empire Fortune highest ever jackpot was won on the NorgesAutomaten gaming site, owned by the Swedish gambling company Betsson. Also, this was the biggest jackpot ever paid out on the Norwegian site.
Managing Director of NorgesAutomaten Alexis Wicen said it was a pleasure that the lucky player had been one of their loyal customers who had registered more than nine years ago. Wicen stated NorgesAutomaten prided on the quality of their service and would continue to offer only the best to their demanding consumers.
