Biggest Swedish Win
The 37-year-old player, who has not been identified beyond his age and location has won the first ever jackpot in the history of Hyper online casino.
The win is also notable for being the largest ever payout that has taken place under the jurisdiction of the Swedish online gambling regulation.
Progressive jackpot games such as this one generally offer the highest payouts on online casinos. This is because the odds of actually winning on the game are very long.
However, a proportion of every stake played on the game goes into the jackpot if it is not won.
This means that the prize pot which is available gradually builds until it is finally won. This gives even relatively small online casino operators, or newcomers to the game such as Hypercasino, the ability to offer large jackpots within only a few months of opening.
They also offer players the chance to win life-changing amounts of money with small stakes, making them similar to lotteries and other long-running games with large cash prizes.
A spokesperson for Hypercasino spoke of the firm’s delight at the win saying:
“We’re absolutely thrilled with this huge win and would like to congratulate the lucky winner on his life-changing jackpot. This just shows that Hyper Casino is one of the best gaming destinations for players and we hope that we’ll soon be celebrating many more big winners in the near future.”
The jackpot on this particular game will now reset to zero. However, given the speed at which the prize built up last time, there is every chance that the casino will be celebrating another large win in the near future.
