IGT's MegaJackpots progressive won yet again

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

In what is fast becoming a regular ritual here at Casino Listings, we have the pleasure of reporting that IGT's flagship MegaJackpots progressive jackpot has been won for the fifth time in the past seven weeks. This time the lucky winner stopped the meter at £691,826.

The massive win, which equates to just over U.S. $1 million at today's exchange rate, is yet another for a jackpot that has undergone something of a hot streak recently. After accumulating for several months the jackpot was hit on April 11, then followed by further hits on April 27 and April 28, then May 6 and May 7. If recent patterns are anything to go by, you would be forgiven for half expecting the thing to be won again tomorrow!

The proliferation of MegaJackpots wins may be partly explained by recent releases of new games that expand the number of choices players have when choosing a slot to play featuring the jackpot. In addition to long-standing games MegaJackpots Cluedo, Cleopatra, and Monopoly, IGT has also added Siberian Storm and Isle O'Plenty to its repertoire in recent times. Or of course it could all be just down to dumb luck.

Whatever the reason, we salute the latest MegaJackpots winner and hope to update this story with information about where and how the win occurred in the near future.

It is an amazing streak of wins at this Jackpot as of lately. 5 hits in 7 weeks is great news for all the punters who go for it, more so the amounts won are quite remarkable, certainly hope the remarkable series will continue.
