November Progressive Jackpot Galore from NetEnt, Yggdrasil and Microgaming (Over €9 Million Paid Out)
Last time we talked about jackpot wins was a lucky Playtech live roulette player who hit the £599,380.45 Age of the Gods Mystery Jackpot. Now we have more envious progressive jackpot news from three major game developers at once: NetEnt, Yggdrasil and Microgaming. Here’s the story of the three lucky players who have won a total of more than €9 million!
Undoubtedly the biggest win comes from a leading iGaming company NetEnt and their equally Scandinavian Hall of Gods jackpot slot. The winner, however, is Neil from Aberdeen, Scotland, who won a staggering €7,205,687.82 at Casumo. As the story goes, he decided to give the game a go for its invitingly high jackpot while his wife and two kids were watching TV.
As luck favours the bold, he played with his very first deposit. And he had quite a unique way to tell his family what he did with it: "From my voice they knew something was up. I told them I'd won some money. Then I wrote down the entire win on single pieces of paper, laid them on the floor and when they came over I asked them to guess what it was. They actually thought it was a lottery number!"
As to what is he going to do with all this money, he replied: "I also want to get my parents a holiday home in Tenerife. They'll love it. And I'll take my kids to Disney, then visit my sister in Australia." As a member of the Macmillan Cancer Research, he would also like to donate to charity.
By the way, this is the second biggest Hall of Gods win to date, just a little short from the €7,525,932.97 that one Norwegian player landed only this summer.
Speaking of Norwegians, the last weekend of November 2017 was also a happy one for a 32-year-old Viking who was trying his luck with Yggdrasil’s hit jackpot slot Empire Fortune. The fortune quickly turned in his favour when he/she struck a whopping €1,117,443! This game is on fire since it was just four months ago when it triggered the studio’s biggest progressive prize of €5,197,198.
To wrap up the festive video slot month, Microgaming has also just proudly announced their latest big win – the Mega Moolah jackpot of €938,306.35! Triggered by an anonymous Grand Mondial Casino player on 15 November, it’s far from the game’s heyday times, but a good indicator that it doesn’t always need to be at the €4 million boiling point to be won just as casually.
