A lucky player had his Christmas celebrations come early when he won almost €3.3 million playing the Joker Millions progressive jackpot slot game from casino software provider, Yggdrasil, on Sunnyplayer.com this last Thursday, December 22, 2016.

The player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, had placed a €2.50 bet on the game when he managed to trigger the Jackpot Spin feature. On every re-spin, more wilds were added until the entire screen was filled with wilds and which triggered the massive €3,291,513 win.

This win is the biggest win to date ever paid out on the Joker Millions slot game, while the largest amount previously won was €2.9 million. Since March 2015, other wins of €720,000 and €460,000 have also been won.

“We are thrilled to see a player win such a life changing sum of money, especially this close to Christmas and while playing one of our slots games,” said Fredrik Elmqvist, chief executive of Yggdrasil. “Joker Millions is our first progressive slot and it is beloved by both operators and players. With more operators continuing to join the Yggdrasil network, the jackpot will be building up again quickly.”

Joker Millions is popular for the fact that it not only offers a progressive jackpot, but also a number of other bonus features, including sticky wilds, a mystery win feature and the jackpot spin feature which continues spinning as long as a wild lands on the reels.

“We love it when one of our players wins big and this is among the largest we’ve ever seen on our site,” commented Alexander, chief marketing officer at Sunnyplayer. “It goes to show big wins can happen, but you have to be spinning the reels to be in with the chance of scooping the prize.”
