It has been a massive weekend for jackpot slots. Only hours ago, we reported one of the more significant jackpot prizes in Yggdrasil’s history, with a Norwegian player picking up over €1 million on the outstanding Empire Fortune slot. We mentioned how NetEnt often comes to mind as one of the premier jackpot providers as part of that article, and to say that we have been rather vindicated on that count would be an understatement, as one lucky player from the UK is going to be approximately six times happier than his Norwegian counterpart!
We did admittedly mention Mega Fortune as the NetEnt jackpot slot of choice for many NetEnt players, but it is no secret that Hall of Gods is always hot on its heels, both in terms of the size of the jackpot and the sheer popularity of the game, especially since the game was launched across mobile devices earlier this year. It is one of a select few slots that enable players to be in with a shot at winning, say, €7.2 million on a single spin. That’s exactly what Neil from Aberdeen, Scotland did this weekend, landing €7,205,687.82 to be precise.
It all went down at one of our favourite online and mobile casinos too, with Casumo being the destination on this occasion. Unlike the Empire Fortune win, this was one for the traditionalists, with the player having been playing on his desktop at the full version of Casumo.
This is the second time in six months that Hall of Gods has made a player an instant millionaire, after another Norwegian player hit a multi-million win back in June of this year. We might even have to change our favourite NetEnt jackpot slot from Mega Fortune Dreams to this one, and there can be no denying that it is a very good game indeed, especially for a change of pace in the theme. Rather than focusing on luxury and wealth like both of the Mega Fortune games, this one brings Norse Mythology to life in a way that we haven’t seen since the official Thor movie slots. As with all great jackpot slots, this is a game that players would want to play even if there wasn’t a seven-figure top prize on offer and the free spins and big wins keep on coming no matter how you choose to play.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, commented on the win, saying: “It’s so pleasing for us that one of our games has hopefully made someone very happy this holiday season.
“Hall of Gods has proven to be a favourite amongst NetEnt fans and has now claimed its second jackpot winner in the space of six months; we hope our popular jackpot games will continue to reward players with excitement and large payouts.”
Even with a massive win like this one, Hall of Gods does admittedly have a way to go to match the Guinness World Record for an online slot payout, currently standing at €17.86 million and being held by its stable-mate Mega Fortune. However, with both games, together with Mega Fortune Dreams and Arabian Nights, being available at the same casinos, you can take your pick based on how big the jackpot is at any given time. At the time of writing, Mega Fortune Dreams is the game to play, with over €3.7 million ready and waiting to be won, closely followed by the original Mega Fortune at €2.2 million. Saying that, it might still be worth trying your luck on Hall of Gods already! The top jackpot is seeded at €1m and has increased by another €60,000 already, and that’s a prize that we certainly wouldn’t say no to!
You’ll find all of these games at some of the finest online and mobile casinos around too, with players having full access to the same jackpot prizes whether they choose to play on a desktop, laptop, phone or tablet. You could follow Neil’s lead and head to Casumo, which comes highly recommended, or could expect an equally thrilling experience at the likes of Mr Green, LeoVegas or Vera & John. No matter where you decide to play, there’s always millions waiting to be won throughout the NetEnt range and with great games being attached to those jackpot prize pools, you won’t want to miss out!
