Game development studio Yggdrasil Gaming has made its biggest ever payout following a €5.2m jackpot win by a Norwegian player on Betsson’s NorgesAutomaten site.

The lucky player won €5,197,198 on a mobile version of the progressive jackpot slot Empire Fortune, beating Yggdrasil’s previous highest payout of €3.3m last Christmas.

“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,” said Yggdrasil chief executive Fredrik Elmqvist. “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.

“Our market-leading slots, including Empire Fortune, are enjoyed by an ever-growing number of players and operators, and as we expand our customer base, it won’t be long before another lucky player hits the big one.”

Alexis Wicen, managing director of NorgesAutomaten, added: “We are always looking to have the best games and biggest jackpots on our site and it’s always a pleasure to see one of our loyal players win such a huge amount. This is the highest ever win recorded on NorgesAutomaten and it is great to see a customer who registered over nine years ago take it home.”
