The Norwegian player won the jackpot last Tuesday playing on his smartphone, and managed to smash the current record for that game – which currently stood at €3.3m (CAD $4.8m), paid out in Christmas 2016. This last win had smashed previous jackpot records for the online slot since it went live in spring 2015.
CEO of Yggdrasil Gaming Fredrik Elmqvist, via a press statement, said: “We’re very excited to see one of our players hit our biggest ever jackpot, and I hope he treats himself to an extended summer holiday.
“Jackpot titles are always popular, but what makes Yggdrasil’s progressive jackpot slots so successful is the engaging base game that keeps customers happy, even though they can’t all walk away with a life-changing prize.”

Empire Fortune Slot
Empire Fortune (available at Canadian online casinos including Mr Green Casino, Ruby Fortune and LeoVegas) is a five reel slot, with 20 fixed paylines. You’ll see a nicely designed background, consisting of a gold-draped frame, with lots and lots of precious-looking jewels.
Also, there are two scatter symbols – a joker and a bonus icon. There’s also that record-breaking progressive jackpot. Additionally, Empire Slots has a pretty awesome bonus feature (in addition to all the other exciting features mentioned above): land three or more bonus scatter symbols and you’ll enter the Wheel of Fortune, across three levels. There’s also the frankly explosive Fireworks Feature, where rockets whizz into the air, landing on some of the awards on offer, and giving them all to you.
With a 94.5% RTP (not to mention that huge progressive jackpot win), the high quality graphics and very generous features, it looks like Empire Fortune is the slot game to play this summer…who knows when the next progressive bonus will pay out?
