What better way to head into the Christmas season than with the news that a very special player won a staggering € 7.2 million (£6,373,373) playing NetEnt’s Hall of Gods progressive jackpot slot? The player, who prefers to remain anonymous, headed to the NetEnt powered online casino, Casumo Casino, and tried his luck on the mythology-themed slot game, Hall of Gods. The player is brand new to Casumo Casino and didn’t dream that his new hobby playing casino games online would change his life forever. This is the second time that Hall of Gods’ jackpot paid out in six months, with a Norwegian player landing just over EUR 7.5 million in June. In December, 2016, a player won EUR 7.4 million playing another NetEnt favorite slot game, Mega Fortune Dreams. The CPO of NetEnt, Henrik Fagerlund said about the latest win at Casumo Casino: “It’s so pleasing for us that one of our games has hopefully made someone very happy this holiday season. “Hall of Gods has proven to be a favorite amongst NetEnt fans and has now claimed its second jackpot winner in the space of six months. We hope our popular jackpot gams will continue to reward players with excitement and large pay-outs.” The win by the player, named only as Neil, was extra special since he was just one hour away from making his first deposit at Casumo Casino. After depositing around EUR 30 into his account, he used 4.00 of it to spin the reels of Hall of Gods slot from his laptop at his kitchen table. Neil was so surprised at his win that he couldn’t believe his eyes and called his wife in to double-check the numbers to see that he wasn’t dreaming. He then called his parents and told them to come over. “From my voice, they knew something was up,” he recalled. “I told them I’d won some money.” To make relaying of the win extra-fun for his parents, Neil wrote down the entire win on single pieces of paper, laid them on the floor and when they finally came over, he asked them to guess what it was. “They thought it was a lottery number,” he said. Neil already has big plans for his massive Hall of Gods slot windfall. This includes buying himself a season ticket to watch Liverpool play at home, buying his parents a vacation house in Tenerife, visiting his sister in Australia and taking his kids on a dream trip to Disney World. He will also donate some of his winnings to the MacMillan Cancer Research fund.
