Chris, a 21-year-old from Oslo, was playing the slot on LeoVegas on Monday afternoon as he waited outside a shop for his girlfriend and won the lump sum from a bet of just €1.25 placed on his mobile.

He said he plans to invest in two apartments with the money, and also take his girlfriend to the Maldives to celebrate.

It marks the third occasion Joker Millions has paid out since it launched in March 2015, having previously fallen for €720,000 last September and €460,000 last December.

Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO at Yggdrasil Gaming, said: “It is a huge thrill to see someone win such a staggering sum of money from a single spin on an Yggdrasil slot.

“Joker Millions is our first progressive slot and it is beloved by both operators and players. With more operators continuing to join the Yggdrasil network, the jackpot will be building up again quickly.”

Karolina Pelc, Head of Casino at LeoVegas, added: “We are delighted that this jackpot was won by one of our customers who was playing LeoVegas on his mobile phone as a means to keep himself entertained. This truly shows what LeoVegas stands for – number one in mobile entertainment.

“Yggdrasil games are always popular with our players as they look forward to enjoying more great content while chasing the next big jackpot.”
