Swedish casino games developer NetEnt has paid out a €7.5m jackpot on its Hall of Gods slot game to a player on Folkeautomaten.com, an online casino operated by Cherry’s ComeOn business.

It is one of the highest ever jackpots won on NetEnt's Norse mythology-themed game, which has now paid out more than €57m since 2012 and €20.5m in the past year alone.

The €7,525,933 sum was claimed by a 47-year-old Norwegian on Folkeautomaten.com earlier this month after he played a desktop version of Hall of Gods.

"We are thrilled to see another fantastic global jackpot winner and are especially excited as the huge amount is one of the biggest of all time for NetEnt and one of our operator partners," said NetEnt's chief product officer Simon Hammon.

"Now the jackpot has been reset and we look forward to the next big win on Hall of Gods and our other progressive jackpots."

NetEnt has now paid out more than €54m in progressive jackpots in the past year. This is the second €7m-plus jackpot in six months, after a UK player landed €7.4m on Mega Fortune Dreams in December. 

Shares in NetEnt AB (Co. Data) (STO:NET-B) were trading up 1.24 per cent at SEK73.65 per share in Stockholm Friday morning.
