This marks the 3rd huge pay-out for Microgaming’s Progressive Jackpot Network. Since the beginning of 2020, the network has produced seven new millionaires, meaning that there has been a new winner every month on average.
Microgaming’s Progressive Jackpot Network has announced that winnings at the end of the year will equate to over €30 million, consisting of all seven and eight-figure pay-outs. The latest seven-figure jackpot is the third such one generated on the Mega Millions platform this year. The first was a €1,650.910.31 which was won on 14 March and a €1,203,349.99 jackpot on June 12th. Aside from these mega winnings, there have also been four multi-million euro prizes won on Microgaming’s Progressive Jackpot Network’s “Mega Moolah” slots, including a triple winning spree followed in May on the Juicy Joker and African Legends machines.
The Network introduced some new titles in 2020 which assisted in providing over 550 other players winnings of € 10,000 or more. With payouts well over €1.2 billion, since it was established, the network’s exponential growth will continue as they keep adding more progressive titles to their already impressive lobby. Games such as Book of Atem: WowPot, Fortunium Gold: Mega Moolah, and Sister of Oz: WowPot are just a few, titles will be released soon.
Some other new titles that the network is looking at releasing soon include Wheel of Wishes, Atlantean Treasures and Absolootly Mad. John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming reported that 2020 has been a phenomenal year thus far and believes that by adding to the games on offer, that they will be able to continue at this pace for the remainder of this year and hopefully even longer. The jackpot winnings for this year have paid out over €115 million, which equates to an average of more than eight pay-outs between 2,571,389 jackpot per minute across the board.
The latest winner is a UK based player, who registered on the Microgaming Progressive Jackpot platform just one month before hitting the jackpot. According to the pay-out processes of the network, the winner will receive the winnings, not in annuities but as a lump sum.
