Hyper Casino, a recently launched online casino owned by L & L Europe, has announced that a lucky Swedish player recently won an amount of close to 27 million Krona wagering on the NetEnt Mega Fortune Progressive video slot game at the site.

The player’s huge win on the progressive video slot game equates to a massive amount of £2,158,785 or a whopping €2.5 million.
