Hall of Gods jackpot unleashes for €6.7 million at LeoVegas Mobile Casino.
As famous as NetEnt is for developing high-paying, online progressive jackpot slot machines, LeoVegas Casino is even more famous for delivering the highest number of progressives to its players. In fact, the mobile-first casino supports more than 60 jackpot games from dozens of software suppliers. As such, jackpots tend to strike frequently at LeoVegas. But last week, one of them unleashed a more rare, monumental payout.
An anonymous member of the popular casino brand was playing NetEnt’s Hall of Gods Slot on his mobile device on April 2, 2018. Before he knew it, his €10 bet turned into a staggering payout of €6,719,248.
The fortuitous mobile casino player has chosen to remain anonymous. However, LeoVegas Director of Casino Operations, Karolina Pelc, was eager to express her elation over the huge win.
“We are delighted with the latest massive Jackpot winner,” she told TotallyGaming this week. “Hall of Gods has been a favourite among our players for a long time, and with the recently added mobile version we have seen the game reach new heights in activity and turnover.”
Pelc went on to describe the sheer volume of jackpot games at LeoVegas, and the resulting potential for players to frequently strike immense payouts at the casino. “With over 60 jackpot games live on mobile, there is always a life changing amount ready to be won at LeoVegas whether you play on your sofa at home, by the pool on holiday or in the bus on the go.”
Hall of Gods Jackpot Slot
Hall of Gods is a rather unique progressive slot machine in two regards. For one, it has a 95.5% RTP, which is incredibly high for any progressive slots game. Most fall between 88-90% RTP, due to their ability to pay such high dividends. However, the above-average RTP also explains why the game’s ‘mega’ jackpot strikes so infrequently, averaging just once every 25 ½ weeks (or twice a year).
When the jackpot does pay out, it averages a lofty €5.9 million. The range of wins scales from the smallest strike of €608,749, up to the highest win of €7,820,888. That Hall of Gods record jackpot hit in April 2015 at Betsson Casino.
Hall of Gods is a mythical-themed, 5 reels, 20 payline game that centers around the legends of the Norse Gods. Its features include a Thor’s Hammer bonus game, wherein players can win one of three jackpots, or a smaller cash prize.
To induce the bonus game, players need to activate max (20) paylines, and see at least three bonus scatters appear anywhere on the reels in a single spin. When this happens, the feature triggers a pick’em style bonus game. The object is to smash shields with Thor’s hammer to reveal prizes. Once three matching prizes are revealed, the bonus ends and the matching prize amount is awarded.
To unleash the Hall of Gods Jackpot, players must reveal three jackpot symbols in the feature. The likelihood of these symbols appearing in the bonus game correlates with the bet size. There are three possible jackpots to win, the Mini (smallest), Midi (mid-size) and Mega (highest). The €6.7 million won by the lucky LeoVegas mobile casino player was, quite clearly, the mega jackpot.
