Yggdrasil is at it again! One of their progressive jackpot games called Empire Fortune paid out a massive sum to one lucky player. As you know, progressive jackpot slot games accumulate money over time until one player triggers the winnings. This happened over this past weekend to finish up November with a bang!
The casino player is Norwegian and was playing at Betsson casino at the time. He was on his mobile when the good news happened. Mobile slot games have had a considerable role recently with jackpot winnings. All three of Yggdrasil’s jackpots in 2017 have been via mobile devices. This news only helps to confirm that mobile is on the rise versus desktop computers. We can all agree that cell phones are with us all day and computers are not. This means we can play while lying on the beach, riding the metro or bus, waiting at the doctor’s office, or wherever.
I have mixed opinion on whether this is good news for Betsson or not. The positives are that its great exposure, casino players will be happy to join their casino in search of that lucky spin. But paying out that amount cant be fun for anybody, it’s a financial hit. I wonder if there is some type of arrangement between player and casino. But Yggdrasil’s games have been giving out a bunch this year! I’m pretty sure they won’t be able to pay out the player’s full winning amount in one payment, it will probably be a process.
Now, my other question is, will casinos think twice before joining Yggdrasil’s software? Given that they is a chance they might have to pay out a huge sum like this. This is an interesting insight given that we need to look at a casinos perspective into this. We all know that from a player’s perspective it’s amazing.
