Microgaming Progressives In the News

September 1, 2018

A big Microgaming progressive jackpot has hit twice in August and an immensely bigger one is waiting to be hit. Here is the news on two of the most popular progressive jackpot online slots. These are live at Microgaming online casinos like All Slots, Platinum Play and Spin Palace.

Major Millions last hit on August 23 for a sum of £1,515,315. The unnamed winner was a male from the United Kingdom, who had just signed up at the Microgaming online casino. He was playing with £3 per bet from his mobile device and landed the huge win on his 454th spin of the game. An investment under £1,500 yielded a return of over 1000 times. Major Millions delivered its highest ever payout of $2,801,619 earlier in August. In fact the last five hits have all been over a million and have come within a space of less than 30 weeks. This is fantastic for a progressive slot game that seeds at $250,000. There are two slot machines networked to the Major Millions progressive jackpot. One of them is a 3 reels classic slot that has 3 paylines. The progressive jackpot can only be won by spinning three wild symbols on the third payline. The other is a 5 reels video slot with 15 paylines. Here the jackpot is won by landing 5 wild symbols on the 15th payline. Both slot machines have a fixed bet of $3 per spin and the progressive jackpot has the same chance of being spun on both.

At the time of writing, Mega Progressive of Mega Moolah is ticking away at $14,148,221. This is the highest that it has ever reached, surpassing the hit of £13,212,882 achieved on October 6 2015. The only barrier remaining is the biggest ever progressive jackpot hit at any online casino. The current record holder is Mega Fortune Mega from NetEnt that was hit for $17,860,868 on January 20 2013. Mega Moolah Mega is growing at $1 million a week. Unless it is hit before then, it could break the world record in September 2018. The Mega Moolah Mega Progressive has been hit about 15 times since January 2016 and must have paid about $75 million in that period. There are four video slots connected to the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot network. The first and most popular one is titled Mega Moolah and has the African Safari theme. The others are Isis, Summertime and 5 Reel Drive.
