Hall Of Gods is a slot from NetEnt that boasts a Norse mythology theme and impressive jackpots. It has 5 reels and 20 paylines, and three progressive jackpots; the Mini, the Midi and the Mega.
It was launched in 2012 and can offer as many as 20 free spins if you spin in the right combination on the reels.
On 15th June, a 47-year-old Norwegian player at Folkeautomaten Casino placed his bet and watched as he became $8,572,125 (€7.5 million) richer.
As well as offering great features like an expanding wild and the more customary free spins, the Hall Of Gods slot also has a Pick and Win feature. It is on this feature that you can trigger the progressive wins.
15 shields appear on the screen when the bonus is triggered and you have to smash three with Thor’s hammer. When you match three amounts, you receive that payout and if you match three jackpot symbols, you will win the associated prize.
There is very little information available about the jackpot winner but we do know that it was around lunchtime that the big money prize was won.
We also know that it was the desktop version of the game that was being played.
What we can hazard a guess at is the palpable excitement of the lucky winner when they realised that they had become a multi-millionaire instantly! We would imagine that it took a little while for it to sink in and maybe even a phone call to customer service to confirm that they money was theirs.
