A Record-Breaking win at LeoVegas

We are extremely pleased to confirm that on the evening of Friday, 9th November 2018, one very happy individual found their fortune on one of our main progressive jackpot games. The lucky player from Sweden mastered the jokers for a monumental win of €7,832,262.02 playing Joker Millions and there’s more to this astonishing win than that!

This incredible sum of money is made all the more impressive as it is the highest ever recorded jackpot on this Yggdrasil slot game. The previous record of over €5 million was won back in July 2017. Even more amazing is the fact that this sum was won from a bet of 5 Swedish Krone – roughly 0.50c!

Commenting on the win, Head of Casino at LeoVegas, James Ford, stated:

“What a record win! Progressives like this always create excitement. We’ve been keeping a close eye on this one in anticipation that it would drop. We’re really happy it was triggered at LeoVegas and pass a huge congratulations on to our lucky player.”

How did the jackpot get so high?

Using a progressive jackpot mechanic, the top prize in Joker Millions is constantly on the rise and reaches into the millions on a regular basis. However, a win this big is indeed a rare thing.

So, how exactly does it work? Basically, the total amount continues to rise as people play the game with a percentage of each bet being put into the pool between operators. As you can imagine, the longer it takes for the grand prize to be claimed, the higher this figure will rise – which is exactly the case with our lucky LeoVegas winner!

By continually landing joker symbols during the jackpot spin bonus game, our winner managed to fill every reel including that all-important last symbol. Just imagine the joy!

Looking for your own jackpot?

Yggdrasil, who recently developed the exclusive Pirates: Smugglers Paradisefor LeoVegas, has a number of great casino slots available such as Royal Family and Vikings Go Berzerk. And while the jackpot in Joker Millions begins to rise once more, there are plenty of other jackpot games to choose from.

At this exact moment in time, the Mega Moolah jackpot is above €7.5 million, so if you’re looking to try and win a massive jackpot for yourself, this is the game to enjoy a few spins on. Hall of Gods and Mega Fortune both have sizable jackpots up for grabs too, so make sure to check them out!

What’s next for our lucky Swede?

Exciting times are surely in store for our Swedish player with an extra-special Christmas most certainly on the cards. For now, though, everyone here at LeoVegas would like to congratulate the winner and wish them the very best with their riches!
