One lucky Norwegian is laughing all the way to the bank thanks to Leo Vegas casino and Yggdrasil Gaming as the Joker Millions slot drops €1,917,485 on Wednesday 31st of January.
One lucky gambler will be thanking his lucky stars that he chose that day, and that casino, to play.
Winning almost 2 million in cash will have that effect on you, strangely enough.
The casino? The incredible Leo Vegas mobile site.
The slot? The always popular Joker Millions slot by Yggdrasil gaming.
We take a look at the game, the win, the casino, and where you can play to have a chance at ending up in our big winner casino stories.
Joker Millions is a pretty special slot, only last November it paid out €3.1 million to one lucky Vera & John casino player.
With millions for the taking, Leo Vegas has one of the widdest jackpot collection around.
So it’s nice to see that one of the little guys are starting to make a splash, as Yggdrasil Gaming becomes more and more of a household name.
Our new millionaire lives in Norway, so when we say it had been a long cold month, we mean, long cold month.
Let’s not pretend, January is always a pretty tough time; you’ve just come back from the high of Christmas, you have to get up in the cold dark of night for a 7 am walk to work, and you’re counting the days till payday.
Is it any wonder that once that magical day of pay came into his life, our Norwegian friend starting having a week-long casino session?
Let’s be frank: he wasn’t the only one.
It wasn’t like our winner came home from the pub and played a few spins after a dramatic day at the office.
In fact, it was an ordinary day, full of ordinary things, and an evening that shouldn’t have stood out from any other mid-week evenings.
Which, to be honest, make for far less interesting storytelling.
But, on the other hand, next time you sit on the sofa and start playing on your iPad casinos, you might have this story in the back of your head making every spin a little more exciting.
The thing about a good jackpot slot is that the progressive jackpot shouldn’t matter.
Odd thing to say, we know, but hear us out: the jackpot is like winning the lottery. Awesome if it happens, but a one in a million chance.
Playing on a great video slot machine that pays out well and gives you entertainment is the far better goal and what will make you come back again and again.
And Yggdrasil know is as CEO Fredrik Elmqvist says: “What sets our progressive jackpot slots apart from the competition is the engaging base game, which means that even those who don’t walk away with a prize are still rewarded with an enjoyable experience.”
Which is a great way to describe both of their progressive jackpot slots; Joker Millions and the Empire Fortune slot game.
Amongst the many great features in this game is the way you can win the jackpot.
5 Joker coins or more, anywhere on screen will trigger free re-spins with the jokers staying sticky on screen.
Each re-spin will, hopefully, bring you more jokers. Each new joker brings with it more re-spins until no jokers can be found, and you then get an instant cash win for all the jokers.
But that’s not what happened here. Instead, our big winner kept getting joker, after joker, after joker, until all 5 reels and 3 rows were full of that golden prankster.
Let’s just say that there was a new joker in Norway that night, and he’s still laughing a week later.
This win happened at Leo Vegas casino, and they famously have some of the biggest mobile jackpots slots online.
So if you are looking for fame and fortune, there are worth places to get started.
The one note we should mention to any of our UK readers is that Joker Millions and Empire Fortune are not currently available in UK phone casinos.
But if Yggdrasil is what you’re looking for, look no further than the local jackpot slots Ozwin’s Jackpot and Holmes and the stolen stones.
Play NetEnt, Play’n GO, Microgaming, NextGen, Quickspin games and more at LeoVegas.
It’s going to take a little while for those progressive Yggdrasil jackpot slots to climb into the millions.
So if that’s what you want right now, Mega Moolah is sitting at 4 million and Mega Fortune Dreams at 2 Million.
However, we’d also recommend looking at the IGT MegaJackpots if you can; not only are they in great games but with only half a million to a million to fight over, more likely to trigger.
Karolina Pelc, LeoVegas Casino Director, said: “Nothing makes us happier than seeing our players hit big jackpots, and we are thrilled to be able to deliver another multi-million-euro prize alongside Yggdrasil.”
