Joker Millions is a fairly new progressive slot, released in 2015, and had, up until recently, paid out its jackpot twice, never hitting a million (the first win was €460,000, the second was €720,000 so they’ve not exactly been small victories) but nothing has come close to what happened recently.
A 21-year-old gentleman from Oslo by the name of Chris was waiting outside a shop while his girlfriend bought some apples. While he had a moment, he thought he’d have a quick spin on Joker Millions at €1.25 a spin, before his girlfriend got out of the shop, Chris was €2,881,257 richer!
The winners plans
Despite his young years, Chris seems to be very responsible in what he is planning to do with the money, intending to invest in two apartments.Although he has also made it clear that he intends to take his girlfriend on a holiday to the Maldives as a celebration, where one feels she will be welcome to buy much more than apples!
Karolina Pelc, who is the Head of Casino at LeoVegas, said of Chris’ win:“We are delighted that this jackpot was won by 1 of our customers who was playing LeoVegas on his mobile phone as a means to keep himself entertained. This truly shows what LeoVegas stands for – number one in mobile entertainment.

With more operators continuing to join the Yggdrasil network, the jackpot will be building up again quickly”.
