Player Scoops Record $4.2million Jackpot Playing Empire Fortune
The life of one Wildz player will never be the same again after they scooped a record-breaking $4,209,743 jackpot prize playing Empire Fortune this week – the biggest in our history.
Created by our gaming partners over at Yggdrasil, Empire Fortune is a popular ‘network jackpot’ video slot crammed with features like its three-tiered Jackpot Wheel.
Landing a trio of Bonus symbols during the base game launches this lucrative bonus round, where players can supersize their winnings and take a shot at one of the three progressive jackpots on offer.
Our lucky winner embarked on their road to riches with just a $10 deposit, which they managed to turn into some nice wins playing Starburst, a highly popular, lower volatile offering. In the hunt for some juicier prizes, the player then took a chance in Empire Fortune, where they found Lady Luck continuing to shine down.
History was made as one momentous spin of the reels propelled the game’s main bonus feature through all three tiers before landing on its top jackpot prize, the Empire Jackpot – meaning a mouth-watering $4.2million payday.

Players are drawn to network jackpot titles for their potentially life-changing jackpot prizes at stake, which accumulate wagers spanning the entire network of various casinos that offer these games.
The games typically pool a small percentage of each wager into a community jackpot, which can contain contributions from thousands of players. The jackpot is then awarded to the first player that achieves a specific winning configuration during a game that forms part of the network, sometimes reaching into the millions of Euros.
Empire Fortune is one of several network jackpot games available to play here at Wildz, alongside other category favourites such as Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune.
Tony Kjäldström, COO at Wildz, said: “We’re thrilled that one of our lucky players has managed to net our biggest ever jackpot win playing Yggdrasil’s Empire Fortune. Jackpot games are incredibly popular and give players the chance to win a truly earth-shattering score from just one spin. We’d like to congratulate our lucky player and we look forward to honouring the next big jackpot winner!”
