Two big progressive jackpots pay out over Christmas

Christmas is a time for giving, and that certainly turned out to be the case last year, when two of the internet’s most impressive progressive jackpot slot machine cash prizes were paid out. Three days before Christmas, one lucky player scooped just over three million pounds on the Joker Millions slot. A short time after that, another player was able to bag almost seven and a half million playing NetEnt’s Mega Fortune Dreams slot.

£3.3m for Christmas

On the evening of December 22, one player was trying their luck on Yggdrasil’s Joker Millions slot. Although not the most famed progressive on the net, the £3.3m progressive jackpot seemed too irresistible for this player, who was spinning the reels at £2.50 per spin. That is about fair for a progressive jackpot, and it proved to be enough after the player bagged the massive cash prize.

Although details of the player who landed the windfall are being kept under wraps (wouldn’t you?), we instantly know that the cash prize is the largest one ever won on the slot, and the largest ever paid out on an Yggdrasil developed slot. Previous records stood at £2.9m, although smaller wins worth £700,000 and £450,000 have proved common in the past.

Yggdrasil may not be the biggest name in the online casino world, although it is highly likely that they are going to gather a lot of attention from this win on one of their progressive jackpot slots. Joker Millions was the first progressive jackpot slot to be designed by Yggdrasil, too. Unlike many of its rival games, Joker Millions is far more basic and doesn’t include many of the fancy special features we normally expect to find in such games.

Dreaming of a bright Christmas

Another player also scooped a massive win this Christmas time. Playing over at bgo Casino, one lucky UK-based player was able to pocket a win worth £7.4 million playing the Mega Fortune: Dreams slot. This slot is the sequel to Net Entertainment’s Mega Fortune. Its predecessor once held the record for the biggest ever progressive jackpot win at over £13m, before it was recently (and narrowly) beaten by Microgaming’s Mega Moolah.

Mega Fortune: Dreams isn’t as lavish as its predecessor in terms of its progressive jackpot, although it continues and enhances the lifestyles of the rich and famous theme of the original game, with more accurate and better graphics. The slot still hasn’t managed to win the hearts of fans of the original game, though, who prefer Mega Fortune to its modern sister.

None of that stopped one player giving it a whirl on his mobile device, though, and becoming a multi-millionaire overnight. Residing in Cheshire and wagering just £1.25 per spin, he was able to come with the £7,437,199 progressive jackpot prize, which is awarded via a bonus wheel game in the slot.
