Since the 1st of January 2019, online casinos are legal in Sweden. More and more European countries have legalised internet cash games including casino games, poker, sports betting and horse racing. Sweden is granting online gaming licences to major groups such as 888, Betfair, Betsson, Bwin and LeoVegas just to name a few. For the past few days all eyes have been trained on a Swedish legal online casino: Hyper Casino.
A Swedish player won the progressive jackpot Mega Fortune Dreams from the developer, Netent. He won 27 million Swedish krone which is a little less than 2.8 million dollars.
The happy winner won the main progressive jackpot from the online games developer, Netent, a leader in the area of 3D slot machines.
First winner of a progressive jackpot in a legal Swedish online casino
A Swedish player, a great fan of slot machines, saw the winning combination appear on Netent’s progressive slot machine Mega Fortune Dreams. He won the equivalent of 2,858, 000 dollars on one of the developer Net Entertainment’s leading games. He is the first player to win such a prize since Sweden has authorised online casino games. It was in the online casino Hyper Casino that the player became a millionaire.
With this win he now has the means to fulfill a number of his dreams. The Mega Fortune Dreams slot machine is made up of 5 rolls, three lines and 20 pay out lines. It’s the leading progressive jackpot from the Swedish developer Netent, which has a licence from it’s native country.
Sweden, the new Eldorado for online casinos
Like Hyper Casino, several online casinos legally offer slot machines and live dealer table games. So Swedish players can play in several legal online casinos. One can see this wide range by looking at the list of legal casinos licensed by the Spelinspktionnen, the commission that grants licences. Many online gaming operators have accapted the conditions laid down by the Swedish online gaming commission to obtain their licence.
The group, L&L Europe Limited, that owns Hyper Casino (and 13 other casinos- Editor’s note) is one of these. The Swedish market was inspired by the English market to provide legal online casinos for players. Whereas Switzerland was inspired by the Belgian market because only Swiss land based casinos can have a gaming licence. From next month, the first legal Swiss online casinos will welcome their first players.
The developer Netent, a leader in the 3D slot machine sector, has made history with the first progressive jackpot won in a legal online casino in Sweden. But this is only the start of jackpots, Microgaming should follow suit in 2019. to be continued….
