A lucky Wildz Casino player has struck a fortune on Yggdrasil’s jackpot slot Empire Fortune.
Yggdrasil announced in a blog post this week that a player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, registered with Wildz Casino had triggered a life-changing jackpot of €4.2 million on its Empire Fortune jackpot slot.
Empire Fortune, which released in 2016, is one of Yggdrasil’s most popular video slots. The game shares a progressive jackpot with Joker Millions and the two jackpot slots have paid out numerous jackpots over the years, now totalling at almost €40 million.
The slot is popular for its unique theme and countless special features. It offers three separate jackpots which can be won via the slot’s bonus game in the form of a 3D wheel of fortune. It also features all the traditional features of video slots including paylines, Wild symbols, and more.
Fredrik Elmqvist, the CEO at Yggdrasil, said in a statement: “We’re excited to see another big jackpot drop in Empire Fortune. Our progressive jackpots games have been hugely successful since they launched and attract a big customer base looking to land that big win while also enjoying a great casino experience. Big congrats to the lucky player and I can’t wait for the next jackpot to fall.”
Tony Kjäldström, the COO of Wildz’ parent company Rootz Limited, added: “Jackpot titles are extremely popular and attract many players to our site, so we are delighted to see one of our customers win such a life-changing sum of money on Yggdrasil’s Empire Fortune. This is our biggest jackpot ever and all of our players love Yggdrasil’s games. I want to extend my huge congratulations to the winner from everyone at Wilds.”
