We all dream of winning a mega jackpot at online casinos available in Canada – who wouldn’t want to retire early with more money that we could possibly spend in a single lifetime? Well, one very lucky player has just landed an astonishing €3,041,054 (roughly just over C$4.4 million) on Yggdrasil’s progressive slot game Joker Millions. The unnamed player from Finland in Europe had reportedly only wagered €0.50 (around C$0.75 in Canadian dollars) on their smartphone before virtual coins kept pouring out across the screen – it took the player a good few minutes to realise that she had won the big one and that she could start planning how to spend it all!
The CEO of game provider Yggdrasil, Fredrik Elmqvist, had nothing but praise for the winner of the latest online jackpot mega payout. He was pleased that his company’s game had yet again “reward[ed] loyal Yggdrasil slot fans with gigantic prizes”. Furthermore, he was super happy that the big prize had been taken by a Casumo player, as Yggdrasil has worked very closely with the Swedish casino brand to ensure that their games are given appropriate status on the site.
This is not the first time that the Joker Millions jackpot has been won in the last year. In fact, a LeoVegas player scooped a whopping C$11.4 million jackpot in late 2018 – and again, this massive jackpot was won by a mobile player who had wagered as little as C$0.70 on the progressive jackpot game. This was followed by another win in 2019, which saw a Betsson player wagering just C$1.80 before the reels went crazy and the slot spat out C$4.5 million.
All this goes to show that a jackpot can payout at any time or place, and you don’t necessarily have to wait for the jackpot to build over months or even years because the millions soon accumulate. The Head of Casino for Casumo, Anna Pistika, reiterated this statement when talking about the latest Joker Millions jackpot winner. She said that the fact that a new player at Casumo Casino had won with such a small wager proves that “anyone can win, at any time”.
To give a little refresher on Joker Millions, we can tell you that it is the flagship progressive jackpot product to come out of the Yggdrasil studio. The jackpot feature is built right into the game and can literally go at any time. This is on top of the superb base game features including gorgeous graphics, intuitive gameplay and a multitude of betting options for all player levels.
The latest huge win follows a long line of jackpots falling throughout the year, and not just on Yggdrasil’s Joker Millions. Following on from the record win on Joker Millions, a BetHard mobile player took home a cool C$3.2 million after the Empire Fortune jackpot dropped – he had only wagered C$5.80. Empire Fortune is the second of Yggdrasil’s progressive jackpot slots, specifically created after the initial successes of Joker Millions. On top of this, a British player at Gate 777 Casino picked up a not-too-bad sum of C$4.8 million after staking just C$0.75 on NetEnt’s Mega Fortune progressive jackpot slot. So, is 2019 the year for big wins? We’ll let you decide that one. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a massive jackpot to fall in Canada over the next few months.
