September 17, 2015

Thursday 17th September, 2015 – Joker Millions, the first progressive jackpot from Yggdrasil Gaming, dropped on Wednesday with a lucky winner in Norway receiving a life-changing 720,000 EUR on EuroSlots.com.

This is the first time that Joker Millions has been won since launching in March and the player, called Kim from Norway, needed less than half an hour to win just over 720,000 EUR.

Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO of Yggdrasil, said:

I’d like to congratulate the winner, I’m absolutely thrilled for him. This is the reason why people play progressive jackpots and to win a life-changing sum with one spin is hugely exciting.

This is a really big deal for us as well. Joker Millions is our first progressive jackpot and it has really captured the imagination of our partners and their players. We’ve already got six clients signed up for it and we welcome other operators that would like to offer their customers this fantastic game.

Kim Larsen, Norwegian Country Manager at EuroSlots, added:

It’s been great fun having the winning player of such a big prize and we’d like to offer huge congratulations to the winner. Joker Millions is already one of our best performing games and I’m sure this big win is going to make it even more popular.

The rapid handling and processing of the jackpot from Yggdrasil has also been excellent. It makes a real difference for operators to be able to pay out big winnings to our players quickly.
