A Bethard mobile slots player in Sweden has unwrapped the ultimate early Christmas present by winning SEK 23.2m(€2.2m) on Yggdrasil’s Empire Fortune progressive jackpot – less than two weeks after the innovative supplier’s record jackpot of €7.8m fell on Joker Millions. The player won the huge sum after a bet of just €4.
Empire Fortune, released in 2016, is one of two Yggdrasil global progressive jackpot games, including Joker Millions. The game features a jackpot wheel where players can win a vast array of prizes from simple coin wins to free spins or a multi-million jackpot.
Friday’s win comes just 13 days after Yggdrasil’s largest ever jackpot fell to another Swedish player, also from a mobile phone. Yggdrasil’s two progressive jackpots, Empire Fortune and Jackpot Millions, has now rewarded a total of EUR 29 million since 2015.
Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO at Yggdrasil, said: “To see a second jackpot won, less than 2 weeks after our prior jackpot was awarded, is absolutely mind-blowing. This means that a massive €10m has been won in 13 days and that two very lucky players are going to have the best Christmas ever. As proven, with so many operators signed up, the jackpot grows quickly and I am excited to see the next lucky winner very soon.”
Adam Vella, Head of Product at BetHard, said: “To hear that one of our players has won such a massive amount of money at this time of year is a real boost and just shows the power of such high-quality progressive jackpots and the excitement they create. I want to extend my huge congratulations to the winner and wish a very Merry Christmas on behalf of everyone at Bethard.”
