Yggdrasil Launches Industry-First Shared Jackpot (Must Go Daily!)
Yggdrasil, one of the most popular game developers these days, doesn’t cease to surprise players with new features. This time they’ve gone to combine a daily jackpot on a slot and a multiplayer RNG blackjack game, each hosted by the same Carnival Ringmaster, Dr Fortuno. This makes it the industry’s first cross-vertical shared jackpot, for added fun and diversity.
The Dr Fortuno slot is about as captivating as all Yggdrasil video slots lately, featuring stunning animations and a stack of bonuses seen mostly in premium releases. The “spectacular” 5×3 online slot features stacked nudging wilds, which upon every trigger bring about the “Wheel of Fortuno” bonus side game. In fact, it’s the wheel with the shared Daily Jackpot that can be yours with a bit of Lady Luck.
Beside frequent wheel triggers, Dr Fortuno video slot also has a feature-rich free spins bonus where players can unlock up to 5 extra bonuses and combine them for better chances at the Daily Jackpot and big wins in general. By the way, the Customizable Countdown feature that’s added to the jackpot (that must be triggered by a certain amount) is customisable by the operator, so it’s worth checking for any difference between multiple casinos.
The very same jackpot will also be available at Yggdrasil’s new 3D 5-player RNG multiplayer blackjack game. It’s built using the same state-of-the-art animation tech as Sonya Blackjack, making the magician dealer as realistic and humanistic as possible.
The studio didn’t miss the opportunity to add some new bonus bets with a separate bonus game that comes with multipliers and a chance to win the daily jackpot. Tip: the probability to win the grand prize in each bonus game is proportional to the player’s bonus bet size. As mentioned, the game is that much more fun than a regular RNG also for its social aspect, allowing up to 5 players sit at a single table, communicate and observe each other’s bets and wins in real time.
That being said, both Dr Fortuno slot and Dr Fortuno Blackjack are available for play right now at one of the many featured Yggdrasil casinos. Coincidentally, one lucky player at one of those casinos, Betsson, just managed to trigger no less than 20,843,925 kr or about €3 million with a bet of just over €1 per spin on Joker Millions! That special moment was captured and uploaded to YouTube here.
