The biggest progressive prize of €18,9 million was paid out by Mega Moolah in September.

The leading online games developer, Microgaming, has recently announced it paid out a total of €154,954,249 through its progressive jackpot network during last year.

Nearly one-fourth of that sum, or a bit more than €40 million, was paid out in seven-figure progressive jackpot winnings, to nine fortunate punters.

An Exciting Year

The biggest progressive prize was paid out by Mega Moolah in September when a lucky player took home a staggering €18,915,872.81 at Grand Mondial Casino. As the jackpot was won on a mobile device, this prize set a new Guinness World Record for the largest jackpot paid out in an online slot game.

This wasn't the only big win in 2018. The first seven-figure prize was awarded on January 14, when a player at Zodiac Casino hit a jackpot worth €2,424,117.20. Only a month later, on February 27, a Royal Vegas Casino player won €4,769,344.11. Another staggering prize was awarded in March, worth fantastic €4,365,843.63!

In April, a jackpot of €4,603,056.85 was paid out at Grand Mondial Casino, while two months later, a staggering prize of €4,931,205.46 was won on Jackpot City.

Major Million slot was also among the ones to award multi-million prizes, after paying out €1,896,616.91 in February to a Betsafe Player, while a win of £1,515,371.53 was awarded at RedKings in August.

More to Come, That's for Sure

The New Year kicked-off in the right way, awarding a jackpot worth €1,162,021.24 to a lucky punter playing Major Million at 32Red on January 2. No doubt there will be more staggering prizes in weeks and months to come.

Microgaming's progressive jackpot network has so far paid out €980 million, rightfully earning the title of the largest one in the gaming industry. We can expect it will reach the €1 billion mark during 2019, which would further emphasise the popularity of progressive jackpot games developed by the renowned company.

Commenting on the last year's results, John Coleman, Chief Executive Officer at Microgaming said his company was proud to host the industry’s largest progressive jackpot network, which had paid out more than €150 million last year, setting a number of payout records in the process.

He added Microgaming was excited to be working on a series of developments that would take the company's progressive jackpot offering to the next level.
