A player managed to hit the Hall of Gods Mega Jackpot while wagering on the NetEnt slot on Wednesday, 8th January 2020 that resulted in a life-changing cash prize of €3,686,881.

The punter’s win is the 19th jackpot win recorded for the slot game since 2010.  The jackpot is hit on average, approximately, every 24 weeks, with the average prize being an amount of €5,527,599.  The largest win for the Hall of Gods Mega Jackpot was hit at Betsson Casino in 2015 when a lucky punter from Norway won a huge prize of €7,820,888.

Hall of Gods Mega is a progressive slots jackpot that can be won at online casinos that offer games from NetEnt.                                                            

The Mega jackpot is the highest in a series of 3 jackpots that also features the Midi jackpot and the Mini jackpot with all 3 tied to the Norse mythology-themed Hall of Gods progressive slot game.  The Mini, Midi and Mega jackpot amounts are listed in the upper right-hand corner of the main screen of the slot game.

To win a jackpot in the 5 reel and 20 pay line game, players must access the bonus game and then reveal 3 matching jackpot symbols by using Thor’s hammer.  Players must then activate the maximum possible 20 pay lines and have 3 of the bonus game symbols appear anywhere on the screen.  Players are then required to break the shields until revealing 3 matching jackpot symbols or dollar amounts.  The appropriate prize amount is won once players have 3 matching icons.

Last Friday Gov. Janel Mills vetoed proposed legislation that would have seen sports betting legalized in Maine and seen Maine join 12 other states that have approved both land-based and online gambling on sporting events. 

The Bill would have prohibited betting on youth sport, including high school athletics, but would have left the door open to a number of amateur and semi-pro sporting events. 

The sports betting bill was sponsored by Sen. Louis Luchini, D-Ellsworth who was disappointed by Mills’ veto.  He revealed that Mills called to inform him of her decision a little while before publicly releasing her two-page veto message. It would also have given almost every entity with an interest in gambling a slice of the revenue and would allow casino operators, off-track betting parlors, harness racing tracks and Native American tribes in Main to host sports betting operations.

Luchini commented that he is willing to keep working on it to make it a more acceptable measure for anyone who has issues with it.

According to Mills’ veto message, she believes that they need to examine the issue more clearly; better understand the evolving experiences of other states; and thoughtfully determine the best approach for Maine.

Main’s casino operators in Oxford and Bangor supported the measure which would have allowed them to take sports bets at their facilities, saying that sports betting was just one more activity that could help draw customers to their businesses and keep them competitive with casinos in the states that allow it.
