Isle of Man – Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network pays out over €89m in the first half of 2019By Phil - 12 July 2019
Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network awarded more than a million wins in the first six months of 2019, paying out an astounding €89,879,343* across 1,150,559 jackpots.
Eight victorious winners took home either seven or eight-figure jackpots during the period, equating to more than €43 million in winnings, and a further 380 players pocketed €10,000 or more.
On 30 January 2019, a Zodiac Casino player scooped the largest jackpot win of the year so far, and the third-highest payout in Microgaming’s history, when a whopping €13,328,028.16 was won through the world-renowned Mega Moolah, a five-reel, 25 payline wild Africa themed progressive online slot.
While generating other notable payouts, the network created two multi-millionaires in as many days when an enormous €11,546,388.15 prize was won on 5 March and a €2,201,120.31 jackpot was claimed the following day. More recently, transformative wins of €5,430,849.65 (3 May), €5,673,937.78 (23 May) and €3,034,204.84 (17 June) were paid out in lump sums, as with all wins on the network.
John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming, comments: “2019 is gearing up to be a great year for Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, with total lifetime payouts fast approaching the €1.1bn 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 jackpot win on Microgaming’s progressive network remains the record-breaking €18,915,872.81 paid out last year on 28 September 2018 at Grand Mondial Casino through Mega Moolah, eclipsing the €17,879,645.12 mobile win that earned Microgaming the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for the ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’ in 2015. To date, 74 millionaires** have been made on the network.
