Microgaming Reaches €1 Billion In Paid Progressive Jackpots
Microgaming have just announced that they’ve reached a huge landmark with their progressive jackpot network, having paid more than €1 billion since its beginnings. They’re the biggest progressive jackpot network around, and there is no denying this, especially with the amount they’ve paid so far.
They managed to get to this huge figure recently, after paying a €13.3 million jackpot to a player from Zodiac Casino, which triggered Mega Moolah’s jackpot.
Since its beginnings, the network run by Microgaming has made 68 different people millionaires. Over 30 winners got paid 7 figure prizes just in the last 3 years. It’s clearly a measure of how popular their progressive jackpot network has become.
As they got closer to that €1 billion landmark, they managed to land a number of records as well. For example, the first millionaire made on a mobile device was a player which got the progressive jackpot back in 2013, while playing Mega Moolah slot. A couple of years after that, they paid out their record-breaking prize, of €17.879,645, to a British player, and they got a Guinness World Records recognition for that one. They paid out even a bigger jackpot than that, in September 2018, when they awarded €18,915,872.
As they reach the €1 billion mark, they continue to be leaders in this segment of the industry, being one of the few to pay huge jackpots as a lump-sum.
Microgaming’s CEO, John Coleman, mentioned what a huge milestone this is for Microgaming and their network. They’re very proud of having paid more than €1 billion to date, and he congratulates all the winners of the Mega jackpots. They’ve been doing this since the late 90s, and in addition to the 7 figure prizes, they also had thousands of smaller wins paid out, in the 5 or 6-figure area.
