Microgaming total payouts in progressive jackpots exceed €1 BILLION

Popular online casino brand Microgaming has announced a momentous achievement for both its own history and the gaming industry. Its progressive jackpot network has cashed out, to date, an astonishing sum of more than €1 billion. This makes their jackpot network the biggest of its kind, and the news was announced shortly after confirmation that a Zodiac Casino punter won a €13.3 million payout playing the Mega Moolah slots game.

Making millionaires for over 5 years

Since its launch, Microgaming’s system of progressive jackpots has awarded prizes in the millions to a total of 68 players, 30 of whom have come in the last 3 years. Some of these wins have been record-breaking, like the 2013 Royal Vegas patron who became the first mobile slot player to win a 7-figure sum on Mega Moolah.

The progressive slot made headlines again in 2015 when a UK-based player won a staggering €17,879,645.12, earning Microgaming a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the biggest jackpot payout in online slots gaming. September 2018 saw Microgaming topple their own record when an €18,915,872.81 jackpot was recorded at Grand Mondial Casino. In 2018 alone, Microgaming paid out more than €150 million.

 

A foundation of success

The CEO of Microgaming, John Coleman, has expressed great pride at his company’s achievements and congratulated all the Mega jackpot winners whose good fortune has been a chapter in this exciting story. He stated that he is looking forward to building on these successes in the future by developing more innovative and rewarding experiences for everyone to enjoy.

The jackpot of €13.3 million that pushed through the €1 billion mark was a delight for both Microgaming and Zodiac Casino, celebrating Mega Moolah’s first jackpot of the new year. They announced that the lucky winner hit the jackpot in under 30 minutes of play, and expressed their congratulations on behalf of the developer and the casino.

Microgaming completed a hugely successful appearance at the ICE London gathering of 2019, where they debuted a new title which is inspired by a popular and iconic American disco act: Village People Macho Moves.
