Joker Millions, the 5-reeled slot by Yggdrasil tied to a massive progressive jackpot gave a Swedish player a whopping €7,832,262.00 a few days ago. The player hit the life-changing jackpot playing at the online casino LeoVegas on his mobile phone.
Joker Millions is a fruit machine-themed slot released in 2015, with an ever-growing progressive jackpot attached to it. It provides players with impressive graphics, a convenient betting range and a lot of side wins that eventually lead them to the maximum win. Although a classic slot, the game offers some special features to ensure players are engaged, as well as a multiplier and a Joker symbol that takes players to the final round of hitting the breath-taking progressive jackpot.
A Rare Mobile Casino Gaming Win
You don’t hear that often about someone hitting a huge jackpot prize playing games on their mobile devices. Well, on late Friday night, a lucky Swedish player took out his phone, wagered not more than 50.00 SEK (Swedish Krona), which is not more than €0.50, on the 25-payline progressive jackpot slot Joker Millions via the online casino LeoVegas and managed to hit close to 8 million-dollars-worth jackpot prize, 80,000,000.00 SEK in total. The player turned mere cents into millions overnight and has done more than that.
This win is more than the beginning of a fresh life for the new millionaire; it is actually a record-setting windfall. Yggdrasil’s parent company Cherry AB claims that its global progressive jackpot network has so far rewarded loyal players with close to €26.9 million in cash, but that this one was the largest payout ever. Having in mind that Yggdrasil is offering its games to the UK but in many other markets including Estonia, Denmark, Italy, Belgium, the Czech Republic and Latvia, so it is no wonder the jackpot grew to that sum of money.
Yggdrasil’s Chief Executive Officer Fredrik Elmqvist stated that this particular progressive jackpot tied to Joker Millions has been rewarding many players with significant cash prizes since the slot was first launched in 2015. However, he explains that this €7,832,262.00 jackpot prize was the biggest one so far, setting a record.
In addition, he showed excitement to see a mobile player get such an unrivalled sum of cash playing one of their own slot games, especially close to the festive season, right before Christmas. He explains that Joker Millions is actually their first ever progressive jackpot slot which has experienced success and gained the love of operators and players alike. Naturally, he encourages others not to give up hope, since the progressive jackpot prize pool is building up again, with more operators joining Yggdrasil Gaming Limited network continually. Being present in so many markets, it is no wonder that at the time of writing, the jackpot is already close to €2 million!
The Stockholm-headquartered online gambling company LeoVegas AB’s representative James Ford admits that when someone plays progressive slots at their casino and manages to hit the jackpot, there is always an extreme excitement. He also adds that he has been keeping a close on Joker Million’s progressive jackpot, waiting impatiently to be hit.
Now that it was hit, he says that they are really happy it was hit precisely at their LeoVegas.com casino and they pass warm congratulations to their lucky player.
