A Player Wins €7.8M at LeoVegas Casino
Everyone dreams of winning huge jackpots while playing slots. On November 9th, a Swedish gambler won €7.8 million by hitting the progressive jackpot playing Yggdrasil’s Joker Millions slot. Surprisingly, the player won the jackpot by betting only 50 cents.
Yggdrasil launched Joker Millions three years ago, and since then the game has attracted a lot of attention. The latest payout was the highest ever paid out for a win in this game. Despite the payout being beatable, it may take months or even weeks to reach such a high jackpot amount again.
Online slots offer the possibility of huge jackpots that can change players’ lives. Mega Fortune by NetEnt with €17,861,800, Mega Moolah by Microgaming with €17,890,000 and Arabian Nights by NetEnt with €8,636,041 are among the biggest payouts in the history of online gambling. Currently, players can take their chances with Microgaming’s Mega Moolah at Betway Casino and possibly win over €10 million. NetEnt’s Hall of Gods also has an opportunity for big wins with the progressive jackpot currently at €4,770,000.
Progressive jackpots in online casinos come in three forms: available only at a particular game, available to anyone playing at a certain casino and multi-casino progressive jackpot. The multi-casino progressive jackpot usually offers the highest prizes. The jackpot amount increases with a small percentage of every losing bet. One remarkable feature of progressive jackpots is that players can win them regardless of the betting amount. There is no need for players to spend additional cash apart from their regular spins to be eligible to win the prize.
