An online casino player in Sweden is sure to have a Christmas to remember after taking home over €2.2 million ($2.5 million) in cash last week courtesy of Bethard.com and the progressive jackpot tied to its Empire Fortune video slot from developer, Yggdrasil Gaming Limited.
According to an official press release from Malta-based Yggdrasil Gaming Limited, the fortunate aficionado banked a windfall worth €2,253,040 ($2,543,389) on Thursday after using their mobile device to place a wager of only €4 ($4.51) on the five-reel and 20-payline video slot.
Yggdrasil, which is a subsidiary of Swedish online casino operator, Cherry AB, detailed that the life-changing win occurred just 13 days after a video slot lover at LeoVegas.com walked away with a jackpot worth €7,832,262 ($8,833,383) thanks to its Joker Millions game and has taken its prize tally since 2015 to well over €29 million ($32 million).
Fredrik Elmqvist, Chief Executive Officer for Yggdrasil Gaming Limited, explained that Empire Fortune was released in October of 2016 and comes complete with a special wheel feature that gives players the chance to take home an array of prizes from free spins to life-changing cash jackpots.

“To see a second jackpot won less than two weeks after our prior jackpot was awarded is absolutely mind-blowing. This means that a massive €10 million ($11.2 million) has been won in 13 days and that two very lucky players are going to have the best Christmas ever. As proven, with so many operators signed up, the jackpot grows quickly and I am excited to see the next lucky winner very soon.”
