A Swedish online casino player decided to take a shot at Empire Fortune only to change his life forever with an amazing jackpot that he won in cash last week. All of that happened on Bethard.com which is an online casino games provider that also features a lot of slots. Empire Fortune is a progressive video slot made by Yggdrasil Gaming Limited. The sum that the lucky player won is exactly €2,253,040 which is roughly $2.5 million. Yggdrasil has been doing pretty well lately, and this generous progressive jackpot is a result of their effort. The company based in Malta issued an official press release where there stated that this happy event happened on Thursday and that the lucky player used their mobile phone in order to spin the slot. What is interesting is that they only wagered €4 and received a real fortune. The slot has five reels and 20 paylines.
Yggdrasil is actually a subsidiary of one of the most popular online casino operators in Sweden called Cherry AB. They stated that this lucky event happened only 13 days after another lucky player managed to land an enormous jackpot of €7,832,252 on another one of their progressive video slots called Joker Millions. In fact, the slot provider has managed to give more than €29 million in prizes since 2015, which is a huge success. Converted to the US dollars, that is roughly $32 million. Fredrik Elmqvist is a CEO of Yggdrasil Gaming Limited and he commented on the jackpot in the press release. Elmqvist stated that Empire Fortune’s release date was October 2016 and that the game contained a special feature that involves a wheel of fortune. That wheel significantly increases the chances to win a wide variety of prizes when you play this video slot. Some of the prizes may not be directly connected to cash, and players have an opportunity to win some slot-related goodies such as free spins and multipliers. On the other hand, the wheel might as well be a basis for life-changing jackpots such as this one.
Furthermore, Fredrik Elmqvist added that it was absolutely mind-blowing that two players had managed to win enormous jackpots less than two weeks apart. He added the numbers and stated that Yggdrasil had awarded a total of €10 million in jackpots in this period. The two players who won their jackpots are definitely going to have a Merry Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year that they would probably spend somewhere exotic. Bethard.com is a part of Bethard Group Limited which is also headquartered in Malta and their representative, Adam Vella, also stated that the jackpot was an example of the power that high-quality progressive jackpot video slots have. Furthermore, he added that he wanted to congratulate the winner and wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
