A lucky player is now €5.19 million richer as he won the Empire Fortune progressive jackpot – find out more below.
The player, from Norway, was playing at Betsson’s NorgesAutomaten on Tuesday the 4th of July (2017) when he won a life-changing 49 million Norwegian Kroners – that amounts to approximately £4.59 million! The player was playing Empire Fortune on his mobile device.
The jackpot win supersedes the previous highest jackpot paid out by Yggdrasil Gaming which was €3.3 million in December 2016 on Joker Millions. Anyway, to see how the jackpot was won, watch the official YouTube video below:
Speaking of the record win for Yggdrasil Gaming, their CEO (Fredrik Elmqvist) commented:
“We’re very excited to see one of our players hit our biggest ever jackpot, and I hope he treats himself to an extended summer holiday. Jackpot titles are always popular, but what makes Yggdrasil’s progressive jackpot slots so successful is the engaging base game that keeps customers happy, even though they can’t all walk away with a life-changing prize.
“Our market-leading slots, including Empire Fortune, are enjoyed by an ever-growing number of players and operators, and as we expand our customer base, it won’t be long before another lucky player hits the big one.”
Empire Fortune is a 5 reel, 10 payline jackpot slot which is playable on all devices from 10p a spin. With a luxurious feel, you can get up to 30 free spins with a cool 10x multiplier in the Free Spins feature. It’s all about the Jackpot Wheel feature where you spin the wheel to win up to 500 times your bet, entrance to the Free Spins feature or the Fireworks feature – in the latter, 12 rockers fire onto the jackpot wheel where you can win 1 of 3 progressive jackpots!
If you’re looking for a life-changing win, I recommend you play at Mr Smith Casino – it’s part of the Betsson group where the Empire Fortune jackpot was won. They have plenty of jackpot slots from NetEnt like Arabian Nights with a £977k jackpot, Mega Fortune with a £2.3 million jackpot and Hall of Gods with a £1.1 million jackpot.
