A total of 9 players have won jackpots in the 7-figure range, thanks to the games with progressive jackpots which Microgaming offers. Overall, more than €40,000,000 have been paid out to these 9 players alone, but there were many others that got smaller amounts.
The biggest win from Microgaming’s network came at their Mega Moolah slot, world-famous already. On September 28, a player from Grand Mondial Casino got a jackpot of €18,915,872. He was playing on a mobile device at the time, and the amount he got is a new record, bigger than the one that Microgaming received its 2015 award for, from Guinness World Records.
2018 started out with a big payment on January 14, when a Zodiac Casino player won €2,424,117. Next month, in February, another big jackpot triggered, this time at Royal Vegas, and it was worth €4,769,344. It took only 9 days after that, before another progressive jackpot triggered in the network, and one of the Captain Cook Casino’s players got it, an amount worth €4,365,843. In April, there was a winner from Grand Mondial, which won €4,605,056. After two months, in June, Jackpot City saw one of its players walk away with a prize of €4,931,205.
Mega Moolah wasn’t the only one to pay such a large amount though. Major Millions 5 Reels also paid well, awarding €1,896,616 in February, at Betsafe, while in August it paid €1,515,371 to another player, this time from RedKings.
As 2019 just started, we’re seeing the first signs of how the year shapes up, and the network started paying already. A player from 32Red has won €1,162,021 on January 2nd, so it was a good start for the year.
In total, the Microgaming network of progressive jackpots has paid over €980 million, and soon enough it will be reaching an impressive mark, of €1 billion.
Microgaming’s CEO, John Coleman, congratulated all the winners of 2018, mentioned how proud the company is to have the world’s largest network of progressive jackpots, and he also said that they paid over €150 million in the previous year. The fact that they’re getting close to €1 billion in paid jackpots is truly remarkable, and they plan to keep working on taking their network further.
