Quite rightly, bricks-and-mortar casinos are always keen to advertise slot machine jackpot winners, not least because it provides tasty bait for frequent losers, without whom considerable jackpots would not be possible. However, online casinos, too, have their fair share of big winners.
In September, 2019, for example, a new, mobile player from Finland invested just €0.50 on the ‘Joker Millions’ progressive jackpot slot at Casumo Casino and won a staggering €3.4 million. Joker Millions is a five-reel, three-row payline slot supplied by Maltese online gaming solutions provider Yggdrasil Gaming, which can be played on any desktop or mobile device. As the name suggests, joker symbols are the key to the game. Five joker symbols, in any position, across the reels triggers a so-called ‘jackpot spin’, during which the player has the opportunity to collect more joker symbols as the reels re-spin. Any player collecting joker symbols in all fifteen reel positions wins the progressive jackpot.
According to the supplier, the life-changing jackpot on their classic, popular slot was the third to be generated by one of its progressive jackpot online offerings in a period of less than twelve months. In November, 2018, Jokers Millions yielded record winning of £7.8 million, while in April, 2019, ‘Empire Fortune’ delivered a further £3.1 million. Collectively, the three jackpots amounted to a £14.3 million, much to the delight of the chief executive officer at Yggdrasil Gaming, Fredrick Elmqist. Elmqist added, “This is a dream come true for such a new mobile player and we’re thrilled it took place on Casumo, one of our major partners.”
