Promotions By Daditz / July 12, 2017 Share Tweet Share Every now and then a happy news lands about how some lucky player scooped a huge fortune on a progressive jackpot slot. When one becomes a fortunate victim of a stroke of luck it makes no difference whether he or she gambled persistently, with dedication for hours on end, or casually played a few spins – the big prize is won! Let us tell you about the newest developments on the subject which took place just days ago and which will make a certain person remember July 2017 for the rest of his life. Last Tuesday this Norwegian fellow, who was obviously born under a lucky star, visited the Betsson’s NorgesAutomaten gaming site on his mobile device. One spin led to another and eventually the game resulted in a massive payout of a life-changing sum worth €5,197,198. The unsuspecting, but surely hopeful, individual was playing Yggdrasil’s Empire Fortune progressive jackpot video slot when the enticing win happened and granted him a life-altering fortune of his own. Yggdrasil owns another pooled jackpot game called Joker Millions. In fact, Empire Fortune and Joker Millions share the prize pool, as well as certain engaging base game features, never before seen in progressive jackpot slots. Maybe that’s what attracted the Norwegian winner to play Empire Fortune over other accumulated jackpot games at NorgesAutomaten. The 5-reel, 20-line video slot features Scatters, free spins and multipliers, but its biggest allure lies in the three progressive jackpot prizes, the Golden, Diamond and Ultra Jackpot. The latest payout broke the record of the game. The previous jackpot won reached a sum of €3.3m, and it made someone happy over Christmas last year. Several considerable amounts were paid out since the game was launched in 2015, but the last one was the biggest by far. Alexis Wicen, Managing Director of NorgesAutomaten, and Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO at Yggdrasil Gaming, both had something to say about the extraordinary reward their game granted to this fortunate soul. Yggdrasil’s CEO wished the winner to invest the money in a long summer holiday and expressed his excitement for experiencing the biggest ever jackpot payout since the starts of the company. He assured the public it won’t take long until the next lucky player hits a sizeable jackpot, due to their expanded customer base and increased number of associate operators. From NorgesAutomaten they revealed that the player who eventually scooped the big one had registered an account nine years earlier and kept maintaining his loyalty to the brand until it finally paid off. The Managing Director expressed his pleasure because a loyal customer had the good fortune to win, and pointed out that having the best games and jackpots on site is something they’ve always strived for. All things considered, one can never know if the next spin could result in a jackpot prize. Congratulations to the Norwegian, and good luck to all our readers. May one of you be the next winner we write about!
