The name Microgaming is synonymous with online gaming. The top provider of gaming content continually provides quality gaming options, including progressive jackpot games. The progressive jackpot network of the company is consistently providing wins and in 2018, just over €154 million was awarded.
In 2018, nine players were awarded prizes worth seven figures via the progressive jackpot games of the company. Out of the €154 million, over €40 million was provided to these nine players. The largest win was just over €18.9 million, paid in September to a player taking part in gaming via a mobile device. The player was visiting the Grand Mondial Casino when the record setting jackpot was won! The win was the highest ever recorded for a progressive online slot game.
The wins for 2018 via Microgaming started off early with a player at Zodiac Casino earning €2.4 million. The very next month, just over €4.7 million was won via Royal Vegas Casino. The wins continued with players bagging multi-million prize amounts via Captain Cook’s Casino, Grand Mondial Casino and more.
CEO at Microgaming, John Coleman, commented on the big wins of 2018 by stating: “Congratulations to all the lucky winners in 2018. 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. 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.”
The New Year has started off with a bang as a big jackpot win was earned via the network on January 2nd. Just two days into 2019 and a lucky player was enjoying the Major Millions game when just over €1.1 million earned. With the jackpot network already seeing wins, it will certainly be interesting to see how long it will be until a new winner is named.
The supplier has been busy, not only with providing wins, but also offering new content. Just a few days ago, the company announced the new slot title, The Great Albini. The new online slot features a mysterious magician and his assistant Lily, offering wilds, wild reels and bonus spins.
