Wouldn’t it be amazing? Life changing in fact, if one day out of nowhere our favourite online slot game decided to pay us out a sum in the multi-millions without us having to do anything extraordinary or exciting to get it. Just imagine, the sheer thrill of seeing those numbers flash up on the screen, the disbelief. One would have to pinch themselves to ensure that this was not, in fact, a dream but the best possible course of reality.

Well, all of that happened to an unknown Norwegian slot player who was playing his/her favourite game Hall Of Gods at the Norwegian run and themed online slot site Folkeautomaten which incidentally happens to be a subsidiary and the Norwegian branch of the ComeOn! casino company that is popular over on this side of the world.

It certainly is fitting that this Norwegian slot enthusiast got gifted this world-shattering prize from a game that has itself themed on the very Gods their ancestors worshipped. In fact, one could almost expect it to enough to revert some back into the religion of the Norse Gods because of it. It is no doubt a great coincidence that this player will never forget.

The exact amount of the big jackpot win in the Hall Of Gods slot game was a whopping €7,525,932.97. We do not know a great deal about the 47-year-old Norwegian winner other than the fact that they happened to be playing the desktop version of one of the site’s most popular games when at 11:53 CET on 15 June 2017 they stumbled across their rather enormous winfall.

Since its development and release way back in 2012, the NetEnt game, Hall Of Gods has paid out more than €57m, with €20.5m of that number being generated in the last year alone. NetEnt, which prides itself in providing games which offer some of the industry’s biggest jackpots, has paid out more than €54m in progressive jackpots in the past year. This was the second €7m-plus NetEnt jackpot in six months after a UK player landed €7,437,199.55 on Mega Fortune Dreams in December 2016. One would expect that it would be a rather large hit to the company however normally when a huge jackpot hits people who hear about it will go in droves to try and recreate it thus reducing the damage that the win has done or even reversing it.

NetEnt offers great progressive jackpots some of the biggest games in its collection such as Mega Fortune and Arabian Nights well as Hall Of Gods and Mega Fortune Dreams. In January 2013, Mega Fortune set a Guinness World Records for a record-breaking payout on an online slot machine of €17.86 million.

Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “We are thrilled to see another fantastic global jackpot winner and are especially excited as the huge amount is one of the biggest of all time for NetEnt and one of our operator partners.
“Now the jackpot has been reset and we look forward to the next big win on Hall Of Gods and our other progressive jackpots.”
