One lucky Swedish player has recently netted himself more than €7.3 million (which is approximately £5.9 million) at an online casino called Betsson Casino (Betsson.com). He won the €7.3 million+ progressive jackpot while playing on a slot machine called Hall of Gods. All that we know about this player is that he lives in the Värmland province of Sweden, he is 50-years-old and he is a council worker.
When speaking about his massive win to NetEnt, he said, “I was winning smaller amounts here and there, so decided to continue playing. I couldn’t believe it when I saw the 7.4 MEUR come rushing into my account.”
He then went on to say, “Money is not everything, but this is absolutely wonderful for me. I haven’t been able to afford a car until now. I’m not going to splash out on a Porche, it will have to be a Volvo. And then I want to buy a house! That has been a dream of mine for a long time.”
Hall of Gods is one of several popular progressive jackpot slots from NetEnt. Two of the other most famous ones include Arabian Nights and Mega Fortune and so far in 2014 these three slots have paid out more than €21.8 million (approximately £17.7 million) in jackpot winnings. In January 2013, the Mega Fortune slot made it into the Guinness Book of World Records when it paid out an astonishing €17.9 million to one lucky player.
Hall of Gods has a Norse mythology theme with 5 reels and 20 winning paylines. The progressive jackpot on this slot can only ever be won from within a second screen bonus feature which automatically triggers when three or more of the Bonus Symbols show up on the reels.
All you need to do during this bonus round is match three identical jackpot symbols to win one of the three accumulating prizes pools – the Mini Jackpot (the lowest of the three), The Midi Jackpot (the medium jackpot) or the Mega Jackpot (the largest of the three). The latest winner managed to match three of the Mega Jackpot symbols to win his life-changing prize.
The Chief Product Officer of Net Entertainment, Simon Hammon, said, “The jackpots just keep falling and it’s an honour to announce that this latest one for Betsson.com is the second largest online Swedish jackpot. The 7.4 MEUR prize will change the life of the lucky winner and shows how much one can gain from our superb catalogue of pooled jackpots.” All of the comments contained in this article came from the official NetEnt website.
Some of the best UK online casinos that currently have these slots available include sites such as Mr Green Online Casino, Casino Euro, bgo Vegas and Casumo Casino. These are just three of the 60+ UK online casinos that actually have these NetEnt slots available.
