Mobile Jackpot Win Over €5 Million On Empire Fortune.
One lucky player from Norway recently struck gold by hitting the mobile jackpot win on Yggdrasil Gaming’s Empire Fortune to win €5.19 million – the largest payout ever secured on a Yggdrasil game.
Although the player was understandably keen to keep their personal details private, at the moment we do know that the mobile jackpot win was struck at Betsson’s NorgesAutomaten on Tuesday of last week.
In local currency, the player secured 49 million Norwegian Kroner – approximately £4.59 million – an amount that easily surpassed the previous Yggdrasil record of £3.3 million that was paid out in 2016.
That win was secured on the software company’s Joker Millions slot in December, and Yggrasil Gaming CEO, Fredrik Elmqvist couldn’t contain his delight at seeing the previous record smashed.
“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,” Mr Elmqvist said in a statement. “Jackpot titles are always popular, but what makes Yggrasil’s progressive jackpot slots so successful is the engaging base game that keeps the 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 a growing number of players and, as we expand our customer base, it won’t be long before another lucky player hits the big one.”
If you’ve never played Empire Fortune before, allow us to fill you in on some of the slot’s vital statistics. The game is an easy-to-use five-reel, 10 payline video slot with a luxurious feel which can be enjoyed across all desktop, mobile and tablet devices. The title includes a free spins feature that boasts up to 30 bonus games, but the real draw Jackpot Wheel game, where big prizes can be won.
Here, players can win up to 500x their total bet, enter the free spins feature or trigger the fireworks feature, where 12 rockets fire at the Jackpot Wheel to award one of three huge progressive prizes.
Indeed, it was in this very bonus round that our lucky Norwegian secured his life-changing win – and although the mobile jackpot win has been plundered for now, it won’t be long before it’s topped up once more.
