Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, widely understood to be the largest in the world, has paid out an astonishing €89,879,343 in the first six months of 2019.
The network consists of 1,150,559 jackpots and has allowed 8 very lucky winners to become multimillionaires overnight.
They took home seven and eight-figure Microgaming jackpots, which is more than €43 million in winnings. A further 380 players were less lucky but still got payouts of €10,000 or more.
Mega Moolah, Mega Jackpot:
An anonymous lucky patron of the Zodiac Casino couldn’t have predicted that on January 30th, 2019 he would win an enormous jackpot of €13,328,028.16.
The immense payout was won through Mega Moolah, the famous five-reel, 25 lines, and African-themed slot.
Just a refresher…
…this is a slot featuring four different tiers of jackpots activated randomly during play. The feature that blew punters’ minds back when it was released is that the Mega Jackpot starts at $1,000,000!
Even More Lucky Winners:
Among the notable payouts of the progressive jackpot, network is the two made in March. In just two days, the network created two very rich people when it paid out €11,546,388.15 on the 5th and €2,201,120.31 the following day.
More recently three millionaires were minted with payouts of €5,430,849.65 on the 3rd of May, €5,673,937.78 on the 23ds and a €3,034,204.84 win mid-June. All of these were paid out in lump sums, like all wins on the network.
Approaching the Billion Mark:
John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming, comments on the state of the jackpot network:
“2019 is gearing up to be a great year for Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, with total lifetime payouts fast approaching the €1.1 billion mark. Congratulations to all winning players on the network, which remains the largest in the industry and features the record-breaking Mega Moolah progressive slot. We look forward to hosting more life-changing wins in the second half of the year.”
The largest-ever win on the brand’s network remains the record-breaking €18,915,872.81 which was paid out last year, 29th September 2018 at the Grand Mondial Casino through – you guessed it – Mega Moolah.
This win has eclipsed the previous highest win that has earned the company a Guinness World Record in 2015. That payout was a “mere” €17,879,645.12.
