Microgaming changed a few lives for the better this past April as its progressive network kicked into overdrive, handing out record-breaking Mega prizes to a few lucky players from its Mega Moolah and WowPot progressive jackpot games.
Mighty Mega Moolah
On 27 April 2021, a fortunate Belgian-based player scored an insane AU$19,430,723.60 win on Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah at Napoleon Sports & Casino. This is the highest amount ever paid out by an online slot machine, a record that Microgaming already held for Mega Moolah.
Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah was developed exclusively for Microgaming by Triple Edge Studios. In the game, you find yourself travelling down a magical rabbit hole with the Mat Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, as you seek out gold coins.
The slot was launched in May 2020 and forms part of a series of fresh games that will include the Mega Moolah enhancement. This game has paid out AU$46 million all jackpot tiers titles.
Having paid out over AU$1.3 billion across all jackpots, tiers and games since its launch Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network grows in popularity with every passing day.
WowPot wows the crowds
The WowPot, which could arguably be described as the younger sibling to Mega Moolah, broke its own records during April. Following its first-ever Mega jackpot payout of AU$17,529,047.11 on 14 April 2021, it took less than a week for the top prize to be claimed again. A lucky player based in Belgium took home AU$2,025,388.75 playing Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot at Napoleon Sports & Casino Online on 19 April 2021. This is the latest ever amount paid out by this slot which is the fifth title in the WowPot progressive jackpot online slot series.
The 5×3 reel game was developed exclusively for Microgaming by Just For The Win and features a theme drawn from the tales of literature’s most famous sleuth and his battles against his diabolical arch-enemy.
Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot’s takes you on an adventure in the dusky streets of Victorian London and packs in some engaging features that keep the gameplay exciting throughout.
Into the WowPot
Microgaming’s WowPot slot series comprises six exciting games so far, with all of them being developed by the company’s industrious partner studios.
The recent jackpot win saw the mega prize go back down to its seed value of $2 million, but this is already climbing again, in preparation for the next Mega payout.
Microgaming’s CEO, John Coleman offered his congratulations to both the player and casino while Tim De Borle, the CEO at Napoleon Sports & Casino expressed joy that many new players would flock to the casino in hopes of becoming the next big winner.
As always, Microgaming will pay out all jackpot winnings as a single lump sum.
