It’s been a few weeks since we announced that one lucky gamer had managed to scoop the €7,525,216 Hall of Gods jackpot in June, and we promised to give you some insider knowledge once it was brought to our attention. Now we know the exact platform that the jackpot landed on, and we’ve got word from NetEnt themselves on how Hall of Gods has risen in the last 12 months to affirm itself as a true powerhouse in the progressive jackpot field.
While the name of the player has remained private, the June 15th Hall of Gods jackpot was won at a ComeOn! brand by a 47-year-old Norwegian gamer. While there have been plenty of huge jackpot wins on mobile in recent times, this was done using the trusty desktop setup.
Naturally, NetEnt were delighted to crown yet another multi-millionaire:
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.
Now the jackpot has been reset and we look forward to the next big win on Hall of Gods and our other progressive jackpots – Simon Hammon, NetEnt CPO
As this was quoted around a week ago, he didn’t have to wait long…
While living up to the hugely successful Mega Fortune was always going to be difficult, younger sibling Mega Fortune Dreams has made a cracking effort. More than €5.5m was won on Sunday night, enlarging NetEnt’s overall payouts even further.
Alongside Simon Hammon’s comments, there were some extremely interesting numbers included within NetEnt’s press release on Hall of Gods. Notably, the game has seen more than €57m won by a variety of internet casino gamers across multiple websites since 2012, and €20.5m comes within the last year.
Does this mean that Hall of Gods is currently a hot game to play? Well, considering the current jackpot has already amassed over €1million since the June drop, it’s safe to say that it’s a huge favourite in our beloved iGaming environment.
We talked about it yesterday, but 2005’s Arabian Nights has just chalked up an entire year since it was last hit – with around €2.3m the current reward for doing so. The current leader, however, is the aforementioned Mega Fortune original which tops the pile at just over €2.4m.
