I mentioned about the Hall of Gods jackpot win on Sunday but I didn’t include any specific information. When a player wins a big jackpot like that (€3.8 million!) the casino has to do a few checks before they pay the customer and want details announced about the win.
The main verification they need to do is actually on the customer. All casino players will know that, before you can make a withdrawal from a Netent casino, you have to verify yourself. The main point of verification is to ensure the player is over 18 (or over 21 in Estonia) therefore legally allowed to play, and that the payment method they used belongs to them and no theft or fraud has occurred.
Only once these checks have been made, will the casino announce the win, as it can be very embarrassing for everyone involved if they announce the win and then have to revoke their statement. But no fear- if you win a jackpot, as long as you’re over 18 and provided the correct details at signup (and didn’t use a stolen payment method!) then you’ll be A-OK.
Netent have now confirmed the win, so well done lucky winner! We know he was playing on Betsson, one of the biggest gaming companies in the world, and that he comes from Karlstad in Sweden. The Swedes are doing well out of Netent casinos this year, that’s for sure!
Hall of Gods itself has paid out over 11 million in 2014 alone, the last winner netting €7.4 million in June. Wow.
“It’s a pleasure to announce that another of NetEnt’s products has made a multi-millionaire. The popularity of our pooled jackpot portfolio shows no let up as more and more life-changing sums are being won.”
