Microgaming Pokies Pay Out a Staggering €150 Million in 2018 Alone

January 29, 2019

In 2018 alone, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network paid out a staggering €150 million (which is approximately NZ$ 261,916,732.41) in prize money and the single biggest win came to €18,915,872 (approx. NZ$31,973,201.23). This incredible win occurred on mobile on Microgaming’s Mega Moolah online pokie and it is now officially recognised by Guinness World Records® as the ‘largest jackpot put in an online slot machine game’.

A total of nine lucky players last year managed to win seven sum figures and between them they netted an impressive €40 million (approx. NZ$67.59 million). This also means that since the inception of Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, the total amount paid out in jackpot winnings has now exceeded €980 million (approx. NZ$1.65 billion).

The Microgaming CEO, John Coleman, recently commented on these impressive jackpot wins, saying, “Congratulations to all the lucky winners in 2018. 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.”

He then finished by saying, “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.” All of these comments were taken directly from the official Microgaming website.

The Mega Jackpot is the largest of four progressive jackpots that you can play to win any day of the year on Microgaming’s Mega Moolah online pokie and you can now enjoy playing on this game either on desktop or on mobile at several fully licensed NZ casino sites.
