€5.2 million euro jackpot has been won on Yggdrasil game!

It seems as though Norway has had quite the lucky streak this year with winning the big jackpot on online casinos. Maybe it’s the way that they play, or perhaps they just have that magic touch, but I think we can all agree that for the most part, usually when we hear the word ‘Jackpot’, it has been followed with the word ‘Norway’.

Now, we are not taking anything away from them in these grand wins, however I for one can’t help but feel a little sad that it wasn’t one of us here in the UK! There is always next time, and we know that sooner or later that the jackpot will build up again and be just about ready to boil over.

Norwegian player takes home €5.2 million euros

One very lucky player hit the ultimate jackpot, and won an absolutely life changing amount of money this month. Yggdrasil gaming’s very own Empire Fortune jackpot was up to a whopping €5.2 million euros, so it was indeed very ready to pop and one lucky player was playing at just the right time on this slot machine online.

The player from Norway was using a mobile device during this exceptional win, so perhaps they were just casually playing on the bus, or on the train, without even thinking for a second that they could make it as far as hitting the jackpot. Needless to say, I think when that moment arrived when the words ‘Jackpot’ hit the screen, followed by coins dropping from every inch of the device’ screen, this turned into one of the best days of his life!

The CEO of Yggdrasil Gaming, Fredrik Elmqvist said “We’re very excited to see one of our players hit our biggest ever jackpot, and I hope he treats himself to an extended summer holiday.”

I am pretty sure that this lucky player will no doubt treat himself to a holiday and much more, I mean can you imagine having a sum of €5.2 million euros? That truly is a life changing amount of money that most of us cannot have with a lifetime of working.

This is the highest ever win that has been recorded on NorgesAutomaten which is the gaming site where all the magic happened!

The winner has been a registered user playing all types of casino games for 9 years, so Yggdrasil Gaming and especially Norges Automaten were especially thrilled that he could bag this money. So hold on tight guys, one day this could be you or me, when jackpots get hit, they build up again pretty fast, so keep your eyes peeled on those hefty jackpots. It’s never too late to start playing on our UK casino sites!
