Malta - A gambler with a Betsson account celebrated Easter in the most lucrative of ways as he won the $3.4 million jackpot while playing Yggdrasil Gaming’s most popular slot game, Joker Millions.
The player had put on a stake of just $1.39 on the progressive jackpot game while playing on his laptop. The incredible moment was announced to the public by Yggdrasil Gaming with CEO Fredrik Elmqvist exclaiming in a press release:
“To have yet another huge jackpot fall is amazing, and I’m pleased that we’re able to reward loyal Yggdrasil slot fans with gigantic prizes. This is a real Easter treat and we’re thrilled it’s happened on a Betsson site, one of our longest-standing partners.”
Betsson’s gaming manager, Karolina Majewska, also chimed in on the win:
“We’re delighted to see one of our players win a massive sum of money. This shows the power of high-quality progressive jackpots such as Yggdrasil’s Joker Millions and the excitement they create. I want to extend my huge congratulations to the winner from everyone at Betsson.”
The winner, whose name is being withheld for security reasons, is not the first person to walk away with a massive payout while playing on one of Yggdrasil’s platforms. Just five months ago, a player emerged with a staggering $8.7 million, that was also won on Joker Millions.
Yggdrasil ended up paying out a massive $11.1 million over a span of two weeks for wins on both Joker Millions and Empire Fortune, its other progressive jackpot slot game.
Joker Millions was initially released in 2015 and, along with Empire Fortune, is considered to be one of Yggdrasil’s well-liked games. It features a progressive jackpot with solid base game features, spontaneous gameplay, and a myriad of betting options. Joker Millions provides players with the chance to play across any device – be it a PC, laptop, mobile, or tablet.
The game is one of Yggdrasil’s crown jewels. It became an instant hit with slot fans all over the world upon its release.
Malta-based Yggdrasil was founded six years ago in 2013 by Elmqvist, who previously acted as CEO of Net Entertainment — which is another giant in the I-gaming industry.
