Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network is one of the most rewarding ones in the entire iGaming industry, that’s no news. The award-winning developer’s network has been rewarding slots players with the most staggering sums for years.

But what is unbelievable really is that this progressive jackpot network has paid out €89 million in the first half of 2019 only! This is a mind-blowing sum that surpasses everyone’s expectations.

A Total of €89 Million Paid in the First Half of the Year

Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network remains the most rewarding one, as statistics show. Just last year, the developer earned the Guinness World Records® title ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’, when a Grand Mondial Casino player hit the record-breaking €18,915,872.81 win through Microgaming’s most popular progressive slot game Mega Moolah on the 28th of September. This was the largest recorded win on the progressive jackpot network to date.

However, the newest statistics show that this incredible progressive jackpot network has paid out an incredible €89,879,343 total win across 1,150,559 jackpots just in the first half of 2019. 380 players have pocketed €10,000 or more, which is a great prize, but 8 winners took home either 7 or 8-figure sums during the period. Therefore, in the first six months of the year, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has made 8 players millionaires and multi-millionaires, taking home a total of €43 million.

The first major win was hit by a Zodiac Casino player on the 30th of January, 2019, who also took the largest jackpot win for the year. The win was also the third-highest payout in Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network history. The lucky player took whopping €13,328,028, again through the epic progressive slot Mega Moolah.

But the most legendary wins came at the beginning of March when the progressive jackpot network made two players multi-millionaires in two consecutive days! First, on the 5th of March, a player hit the fourth-largest jackpot payout in Microgaming’s history, the €11,546,388. Then, on the 6th of March, the very next day, a second €2,201,120 jackpot was won by another fortunate player. This means that the network paid out over €13 million in 48 hours!

Even though the most recent win was on the 17th of June, when a player hit a €3,034,204 win, there were two massive wins in May, too. On the 3rd of May, a lucky player scooped €5,430,849, while 20 days later, another player collected €5,673,937. The network paid out over €11 million in three weeks.

The total number of millionaires made thanks to the Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network until the 30th of June, 2019 is 74.

The Record-Breaking Slot, Mega Moolah

Mega Moolah, the game that made most of the aforementioned players millionaires and multi-millionaires, is a wild Africa-themed slot that offers 25 paylines across 5 reels. It was released in 2006, so it has been making players happy for 13 years now.

Presented with vibrant colours, the symbols you will see on the reels are the lowest-paying playing card Royals, and the more rewarding Lion Wild and the fun Monkey Scatter. By making winning combos with the symbols in the main game, you can collect up to 75,000 coins, but with the aid of the Wild and Scatter, up to 225,000 coins can be won. The game features Free Spins, which improve your chances of getting frequent payouts. But the stars in the slot are the four progressive jackpots, the Mini, Minor, Major and Mega Progressive jackpots, starting with €10, €100, €10,000 and €100,000, respectively. These sums can increase so much, as we could see, and change your life forever if you’re lucky enough to see them trigger at random!

The Statement by Microgaming’s CEO

Microgaming’s CEO John Coleman took a few minutes of his time to comment on the massive €89 million sum delivered by the developer’s progressive jackpot network. He said that 2019 was set out to be a great year for Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, with total lifetime prizes approaching the €1.1 billion mark.

Congratulating all winning players on the network, Coleman added that the network remained the largest one in the iGaming industry, attached to the globally-renowned Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot. He finished the statement saying that everyone at Microgaming was looking forward to hosting more life-changing wins in the second half of the year, too.
