Over £130 million paid out by Microgaming's progressive slot network in 2018
In 2018, Microgaming continued to live up to its reputation of life-altering wins by paying out over a staggering £130 million through its network of progressive slot titles.
The largest jackpot win of the year was through Microgaming’s world-renowned Mega Moolah progressive title, with an astounding €18,915,872.81 paid out on Friday 28th September at Grand Mondial Casino. This was won by a player using their mobile and set a new payout record for this popular progressive 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.
The CEO of Microgaming, John Coleman commented ‘We are 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 … we are excited to be working on a series of developments aimed at taking our progressive jackpot offering to the next level.’
