With that said, a Swedish player playing at Videoslots, a popular mobile casino, struck luck on the Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon WowPot Megaways. This sum was won on August 23, 2021, exactly four days after the jackpot’s launch.
The latest win is the largest in WowPot’s history, bettered only by the whopping €17.52 million on April 14, 2021. Also, the Swedish player is the fourth millionaire from Microgaming’s WowPot.

As it is the tradition at Microgaming, the company was quick to congratulate the player and the mobile casino. According to the company’s CEO, John Coleman, the Microgaming is delighted to see another WowPot win scooped just days after release. In addition, he extended the company’s congratulations to the lucky gambler and Videoslots, one of the best mobile casinos in Sweden. Congratulations from CasinoRank, as well!

He added that the company is even more delighted that one of its loyal players has become a multi-millionaire, thanks to the latest WowPot win.
