Punters that played Microgaming online casino games in 2018 won a huge €154,954,249 on progressive jackpots, with nine players taking home wins with seven figures or more.
The biggest of these wins was from the Mega Moolah Progressive in September, when a punter set the Guinness World Record for largest online jackpot with a €18,915,872.81 strike. This win was picked up by our jackpot tracker and was first reported here. The first big win of the year took place on January 14th when a punter won €2.4 million on the Mega Moolah at Zodiac Casino, with a punter hitting it a month later at Royal Vegas for €4.3 million.
"Congratulations to all the lucky winners in 2018", said Microgaming CEO John Coleman. "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."
As we move into 2019, the Mega Moolah Mega is gearing up to offer another huge jackpot win to a lucky player, potentially eclipsing the previous record mentioned above. As of press time, the jackpot sits at $17.7 million in value, and will no doubt change a lucky gambler's life forever.
