For 33 weeks, not one player managed to win the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot causing this jackpot to grow higher and higher! Just until last Tuesday, a life-changing day for one of the NetEnt casino players as it was on this day that the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot fell into the hands of a very lucky player, winning an incredible €6.1 million!
What do we know about this jackpot win?
Not so much yet and that’s pretty usual as a long process starts from the moment the winner of a Hall of Gods™ Jackpot manages to hit three Mega Jackpot symbols with the help of Thor’s hammer in the bonus game. It’s then that the player sees three of the red Mega Jackpot symbols in his screen after which Thor will show up with the message that it’s the Mega Jackpot you won and the amount involved.
Imagine you’re in this situation and Thor comes around holding a sign with the amount of €6,084,758, what would you do? You first want to know if it’s true right. I think disbelieve is a common reaction, because how on earth, can you be the lucky one winning an amount like that, right? It does happen though. And you don’t always have to play with huge bets to become the newest NetEnt millionaire as jackpots were won with bets as small as €1.
After the online casino confirms such a jackpot win to the player, the online casino will do it’s very best to guide the winner, because it’s pretty unusual for a human being to become a millionaire from the one day to another. Some guidance is appreciated while the anonymity of the winner should be guaranteed as well.
There’s a lot more going on than you would initially believe after a huge jackpot like this is won by a player. And this is why it can take a while before more information about a NetEnt Jackpot win comes out and sometimes, we never find out what online casino was hosting the player. And don’t we love the winner’s stories? We do, but it’s not always that we find out what happened the day the brand-new millionaire walked away with a multi-million jackpot!
What we do know so far is that the jackpot amounted a dazzling €6.1 million which was saved for the past 33 weeks. During these weeks, all players that played with real money added to the jackpot, however, as usual, only one can walk away with such wealth!
What else do we know?
I also know that this jackpot is the 18th Mega Jackpot won with the Hall of Gods™ video slot since the game was launched in December 2010. That simply means that this jackpot is won an average of twice a year. The statistics below show that it’s kind of true. The number of weeks between the jackpots is the numbers of weeks in between two jackpots. There are 52 weeks in a year which would mean that a jackpot is won every 26 weeks. The 6 jackpots were won after 34, 21, 17, 19, and 22 weeks which means that the Hall of Gods™ slot indeed pays out two Mega Jackpots a year. The average time between all 18 Mega Jackpots won is 24 weeks and 6 days. More proof.
NetEnt paid out 6,084,758
34 weeks ago €4,025,328
1 year and 3 weeks ago €2,701,181
1 year and 14 weeks ago €6,719,248
1 year and 34 weeks ago €7,135,987
2 years and 4 weeks ago €7,525,467
However, this doesn’t mean that it will take 26 weeks again for the next Hall of Gods™ Jackpot to fall again. It all depends on the random number generator! And since the lowest Mega Jackpot ever won amounts €608,749, it’s a fact that the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot can be won at any moment, no matter what the statistics say! That means that it could be right now with a player ending up with €550,874 already!
The highest Hall of Gods™ Jackpot ever won is €7.8 million and was won in April 2015 by a Norwegian player. The five highest Hall of Gods™ jackpots paid out in the past 9 years all show an amount higher than €7 million!
Hall of Gods™ slot
Enough facts and statistics for now! What about the game itself? How do you get to that jackpot? As mentioned before, you need to get to the bonus game for that, but there’s much more going on in the Hall of Gods™ slot.
You’ll come face-to-face with Norse mythology as admired by the Vikings, for example. So you’re about to meet the Midgard Serpent in the Expanding Wild, and Odin’s ravens on the Scatters. 3 or more of these will give you a chance to win up to 20 Free Spins.
The bonus game, triggered by three Bonus symbols, features Thor’s hammer! Just like the above jackpot winner, you’ll get to use the famous hammer to break shields in order to match 3 to win one of the three NetEnt Jackpots. The Mini and the Midi Jackpot are both local which means that the amount of these jackpots depends on the local jackpot created by the local players of the NetEnt Casino of your choice! The Mega Jackpot, on the other hand, is a pooled jackpot, created by the players of all NetEnt Casinos and not just one! That’s why the Mega Jackpot is much higher than the Mini and the Midi Jackpot.
