At the start of 2019, gambling laws in Sweden were changed, and a local casino player has become the first in the country to scoop a multi-million jackpot. The un-named customer of Hyper Casino won nearly 27 million Krona from the Mega Fortune slot machine.
A Mega Win
All that we know about the player is that he is 37 years old and has become the first winner of a NetEnt progressive jackpot prize since Sweden became a regulated market. The Mega Fortune progressive jackpot slot paid out a staggering 26,958,246 SEK, which is the equivalent of nearly 2.5 million Euros.
The win was claimed at Hyper Casino, which is the newest site from AffiliateRush and L&L Europe. Although this is the first time that a Swedish player has won a NetEnt progressive prize, Hyper Casino is hoping that many more of their customers strike it lucky on the site. Alongside the NetEnt progressive range, Hyper Casino hosts Microgaming progressive jackpot slots.
