When we usually talk about Microgaming making a splash with one of their Mega Moolah or WowPot! slots, then this time it’s Yggdrasil Gaming and their Jackpot Millions that get all the attention. The new year had barely begun when a lucky Finn triggered, potentially, a life-changing €6-million New Year’s present on the 2nd of January 2022. The highly anticipated win was won on one of the Betsson Group casinos, NordicBet. With €39,924,077.04 awarded in local jackpots in 2021 alone, everyone will surely still get their chance in the months ahead.

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Products & Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “We really couldn’t have asked for a better way to herald in the new year, with Joker Millions once again proving hugely lucrative for one lucky player. We have high liquidity passing through our JP products, and it’s very satisfying to see players enjoy our very first progressive jackpot slot so many years after its release. When you combine this with the success of our newer jackpot titles such as Frost Queen Jackpot and Atlantean GigaRise™, it’s clear to see we’ve devised a winning formula at Yggdrasil.”

While we don’t often hear of Yggrasil jackpots, the developer has put more effort into making their jackpot slots more popular and accessible. For one thing, they released two new jackpot games last year. This includes Atlantean GigaRise with 32,768 ways to win, and Frost Queen Jackpots with five local jackpots and the studio's signature 5-collection-symbol mechanic. Their entire portfolio of progressive jackpot slots also features Holmes and the Stolen Stones, Empire Fortune, Ozwin’s Jackpots, Dr Fortuno, Jackpot Raiders, and Jackpot Express.

Unlike Joker Millions, some Yggdrasil jackpots are local because they are tied to a casino or a casino group. Depending on where you play, expect to see different jackpots too. As a rule of thumb, the bigger the group, the more casinos there are sharing the same jackpot, and the more players there are to grow it. On the other hand, smaller jackpot networks may have less players competing for the prizes. If anything, let the past jackpot wins be a guide. These include the €4.2 million win on Empire Fortune at Wildz a year ago, and two €3 million hits on Joker Millions at Casumo and Betsson casinos, respectively, two years ago. The same jackpot at both casinos and all Yggdrasil casinos with this game currently stands near €970,000!
