Business News

One of Yggdrasil’s lucky players is set for a special summer after winning €5,197,198 on its global progressive jackpot slot Empire Fortune.

The fortunate Norwegian player hit the life-changing win on Betsson’s NorgesAutomaten gaming site on Tuesday evening while playing on a mobile device.

The massive pay-out is the jackpot pool’s record, smashing the €3.3m win paid out over Christmas last year, with other significant sums paid out since going live in 2015.

Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO at Yggdrasil Gaming, said: “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.”

 Alexis Wicen, Managing Director of NorgesAutomaten, said: “We are always looking to have the best games and biggest jackpots on our site and it’s always a pleasure to see one of our loyal players win such a huge amount.

“This is the highest ever win recorded on NorgesAutomaten and it is great to see a customer who registered over nine years ago take it home!”

Empire Fortune shares a progressive jackpot with another popular Yggdrasil title, Joker Millions. Unlike most progressive jackpot slots, has an engaging base game improving playability for all users.
