Microgaming’s progressive network customers have had a great year so far with over a million wins in the first half of 2019. To be more specific, the figure is €89,879,343 spread out over 1,150,559 lucky jackpot wins.
Further distribution of winnings shows that 8 winners took home some €43 million, while 380 other players were awarded €10,000 or more.
Creating Multimillionaires Overnight:
The progressive jackpot network has not only made quite a few payouts, but they have created literal multimillionaires in the process. On March 5, someone…
… drew the €11,546,388.15 jackpot, while just a day later a lucky winner won the €2,201,120.31 jackpot.
This trend continued well into May when a €5,430,849.65 jackpot fell on May 3. Exactly 20 days later, someone was lucky enough to net the €5,673,937.78 payout.
The most recent online casino jackpot was paid out on June 17 and was worth some €3,034,204.84. That totals to four massive jackpots and four new multimillionaires in a three-month period.
John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming, has offered his insights on this story: “2019 is gearing up to be a great year for Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, with total lifetime payouts fast approaching the €1.1 billion 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.”
Despite all of the massive wins, none of these jackpots can cove even close to the one that was drawn back in 2018. It was September 28…
… when someone pulled an €18,915,872.82 jackpot at the Grand Mondial Casino. The slot game in question was Mega Moolah.
This jackpot still represents one of the highest amounts ever paid out. So much so that it had broken the previous record which was made official by the Guinness World Records.
Fans and loyal customers of this network based in the United Kingdom’s self-governing territory of Isle of Man, obviously have a lot to look forward to. The year is just halfway over…
…meaning that we could see a few more millionaires by the time winter swings around.
