Massive progressive jackpot payouts from Microgaming
Anyone interested in online gaming is familiar with Microgaming for quality, innovation, and range. Not surprisingly for a market and industry leader, 2018 saw Microgaming pay out the staggering sum of just over €154 million from progressive jackpots.
Of that sum, nine lucky gamers received seven-figure sums from Microgaming’s progressive jackpot slots, totaling over €40 million. One individual received just over €18.9 million after triggering a jackpot from a quick visit to the Grand Mondial Casino via his or her mobile device, setting a new record for winnings from a progressive online jackpot game.
And that’s not the only cluster of big wins paid out by Microgaming during the course of 2018. One patron of the Zodiac Casino got a windfall of €2.4 million followed by a player at the Royal Vegas Casino walking away with just over €4.7 million. A bumper year continued as Captain Cook’s Casino, the Grand Mondial Casino, and others in Microgaming’s online suite of locations also made multi-million payouts.
Micgrogaming’s CEO, John Coleman, sent congratulations to all the year’s big winners, and said the company was
“…proud to host the industry’s largest progressive jackpot network, which paid out more than €150 million last year, setting a number of payout records in the process. It is remarkable to see total payouts nearing €1 billion, which really highlights the strength of the network, and we are excited to be working on a series of developments aimed at taking our progressive jackpot offering to the next level.”
2019 looks set to pick up where 2018 left off as far as winnings are concerned, as just two days into the year, a €1.1 million jackpot win was paid out on Major Millions. All eyes are on the jackpot network to see who the next big winner will be.
Microgaming hasn’t just been paying out the millions on its jackpot wins, but also coming up with exciting new content. One of the most eagerly expected new slots of 2019 premiered just a few days ago: The Great Albini, starring an enigmatic magician and his charming assistant, with wilds, wild reels, and bonus spins.
