In 2018 alone, nine Major Millions and Mega Moolah players have become multi-millionaires, courtesy of Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network. The network has paid out €150 million in 2018, and the renowned developer has shared the news with its admirers a few days ago via an official press release.
A Lucky Year for Microgaming’s Players
The astounding sum of €150 million was delivered to nine players throughout the entire year. The first jackpot for 2018 was hit on 14th of January by a Zodiac Casino player who has won €€2,424,117.20. A Betsafe player, on 2nd of February, won €1,896,616.91 playing Major Millions and not a full month later, on 27th of February, a Royal Vegas Casino player received whopping €4,769,344.11. Nine days later, on 8th of March, a Captain Cook player marked the end of a fortunate trimester with the €4,365,843.63 win.
The beginning of the second trimester was marked with the €4,603,056.85 jackpot reward hit by a Grand Mondial Casino player. A JackpotCity player won €4,931,205.46 on 24th of June, while a RedKings player got lucky on 22nd of August, winning £1,515,371.53.
But the major, record-breaking jackpot amount was hit on 28th of September, by a Grand Mondial Casino player who played the mega-popular progressive slot game Mega Moolah on a mobile device. The mind-blowing €18,915,872.81 prize broke Microgaming’s 2015 GUINNESS World Records® record payout.
A New Jackpot Prize Won 2 Days after New Year’s Eve
Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has not ceased to surprise players and shows no signs of slowing down. Just 2 days after New Year’s Eve, a player at 32Red Casino won €1,162,021.24 on Major Millions.
This marked the beginning of a new cycle, but also the €980 million milestones of Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, making it the largest in the iGaming industry. The near €1 billion in prizes milestone only emphasizes the popularity and huge success of the progressive games developed by Microgaming nearly two decades ago.
John Coleman’s Statement
The CEO of Microgaming, John Coleman, issued a statement saying that Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, during the process of giving more than €150 million to players this past year, has set a number of payout records. He was amazed by the fact that the network managed to pay out nearly €1 billion during all these years.
Congratulating all lucky winners from 2018, Colman encouraged future players to continue playing, since they are working on many new developments that will take the progressive jackpot to a whole new level.
