Microgaming €19 million pay out to one lucky mobile player

Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network paid out over €150 million in 2018

Microgaming continued to live up to its reputation of generating life-changing wins by paying out a staggering €154,954,249 through its progressive jackpot network in 2018.

In total, nine lucky players took home seven-figure sums from Microgaming’s progressive jackpot games, equating to more than €40 million in winnings.

The largest jackpot win was through Microgaming’s world-renowned Mega Moolah progressive, with a whopping €18,915,872.81 paid out on Friday 28 September at Grand Mondial Casino. Won by a player on a mobile device, this set a new payout record for the popular progressive online slot, eclipsing the €17,879,645.12 that earned Microgaming the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for the ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’ in 2015.

The record-breaking win was one of many big payouts in 2018. The year got off to a winning start on 14 January when a €2,424,117.20 prize was triggered at Zodiac Casino. February fired up the second mega win of the year when an enormous €4,769,344.11 was awarded to a Royal Vegas Casino player on 27 February. Nine days later, the progressive network created another multi-millionaire when a fantastic €4,365,843.63 prize was won on Captain Cook’s Casino on 8 March, marking another major mobile win on the network. Following this, a lucky player on Grand Mondial Casino won a mind-blowing €4,603,056.85 prize on Thursday 19 April. On 24 June, a massive prize of €4,931,205.46 was won on Jackpot City.

Microgaming’s Major Millions 5 Reel slot also joined the celebrations after it paid out €1,896,616.91 on 2 February to a Betsafe player and £1,515,371.53 on 22 August to a RedKings player.

Three weeks into 2019, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network is showing no signs of slowing down, with a lucky 32Red player having scooped up a fantastic €1,162,021.24 jackpot playing Major Millions on 2 January. The network has paid out an incredible €980 million to date, making it the largest in the industry, and with the Mega Moolah jackpot currently topping €17 million*, total payouts are fast approaching the €1 billion mark – a unique milestone which highlights the enduring popularity and success of Microgaming’s progressive games.
