The online casino games developer, Yggdrasil is making waves in the industry with big wins coming one after another at partner casinos. It is not so long ago that the group announced a record-breaking win on its Joker Millions slot, when a player won a staggering €7.8 million. This time around, Yggdrasil’s Empire Fortune slot made a Swedish player deliriously happy with a €2.2 million payout.

The latest win happened at Bethard, an online casino that carries games by Yggdrasil Gaming Limited. The player headed to the five reel, 20 payline video slot game that has a progressive jackpot tied to it. After placing a wager of just €4, the player found the zeroes adding up on his screen faster than he could blink and realized that he had hit the jackpot. The player also proved that a big hit can happen anywhere and at any time, as he had been playing on his mobile phone when the jackpot was hit.

The head of product at Bethard.com online casino, Adam Vella was the first on hand to congratulate the lucky player. He said that to hear that one of the casino’s players had won such a massive amount of money at this time of the year was real “boost”, and showed the power of such high-quality progressive jackpots and the excitement they create. Valla extended his heartiest congratulations to the winner and wished him a very Merry Christmas on behalf of everyone at Bethard Casino.

Also commenting on the big win on Empire Fortune slot was the chief executive officer of Yggdrasil Gaming, Fredrik Elmqvist.

“To see a second jackpot won, less than 2 weeks after our prior jackpot was awarded, is absolutely mind-blowing,” he said. “This means that a massive €10m has been won in 13 days and that two very lucky players are going to have the best Christmas ever!”

“As proven, with so many operators signed up, the jackpot grows quickly and I am excited to see the next lucky winner very soon.”

Since 2015, Yggdrasil Gaming’s two progressive jackpot games, Jackpot Millions and Empire Fortune slots, have paid out a mind-boggling €29 million.
