If you are a regular reader of The Slot Buzz then you will know that we haven’t been that impressed by Microgaming’s recent slot releases. Games like Sidewinder and Wild Scarabs in 2018 just came across as insipid and uninspired.

But whatever you think about MG’s current game catalogue, what can’t be denied is the sheer blockbuster power of their Progressives. These games really do have it in them to pay out life-changing jackpots, as recently published figures show.

The entire Progressive Jackpot network of Microgaming slots paid out an astonishing €154,954,249 in prizes throughout last year, including no less than NINE seven-figure amounts totalling over €40 million.

Included in this gold rush was the record-breaking Mega Moolah payout of €18,915,872.81 to a lucky punter from Grand Mondial Casino who was have a spin on their mobile phone when the jackpot struck.

Other highlights in the published figures included a €2,424,117.20 jackpot paid out on 14th January 2018 at Zodiac online casino, a €4,365,843.63 prize paid out at Captain Cook’s casino on 8thMarch, and a £1,515,371.53 payout at RedKings on 22ndAugust.

And already in 2019 another huge payout was recorded, this time at 32Red where a player won €1,162,021.24 playing Major Millions on 2ndJanuary 2018.

Microgaming’s CEO, John Coleman was unsurprisingly enthusiastic about the high value of the prize payouts across the network in 2018. He said:

“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. 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.”

In total the Microgaming network has paid out €980 million to date. The current Mega Moolah prize stands at €17 million! If you want to try your luck today, we recommend spinning the reels at Casumo Casino.
