Microgaming paid out over £154 million in jackpot wins last year!

January is for many a time of reflection. A time to reflect upon the past year, think of some new resolutions and to try to make the brand new year as good as it can get. The same goes for our top casino game providers, January is the perfect time to reflect upon their winnings, losses and of course those all exciting jackpot wins. Microgaming only recently released a financial report on their jackpots from 2018 with information on all of the jackpot winnings from that year. One might go as far as saying it was quite the prosperous year for many thriving casino players!

Microgaming cashed out a magnificent £154,954,249 through the network during the last twelve months.

This is a staggering amount and hats off to you if you were in fact one of those very lucky winners who managed to walk away with a pocket full of that cash. Microgaming is known for not only their innovative and original slot games consisting of over 850 games in their portfolio, but also for their jackpot slots with one of the biggest titles winning many of the jackpots being Mega Moolah.

Microgaming is a UK-based developer as many of you will already know, but what you may not know is that they currently hold the Guinness World Record title for cashing out the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game! This title was won way back in 2015 when a very lucky casino player managed to bag over £17 million pounds in winnings. Can you imagine having £17 million in the bank? What would you even do with all of that money, how could someone spend such a vast amount of cash within 1 lifetime. It’s an incredible win and a big well done to that player. It makes us wonder if they still have most of that cash now with four years having passed.

There is no sign of slowing down on the jackpot front either, we are only just at the very end of January and there has already been a lucky winner for 2019 thanks to a Microgaming jackpot slot. What a fantastic start to the new year raking in a hefty £1,162,021.24 on the Microgaming Major Millions slot game. Due to the quick win of 2019, the CEO John Coleman wanted to say a few words “ Congratulations to all of 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.”

Looks like it is full steam ahead for Microgaming, and we could not be more proud of them. As for all of you, it’s about time to kick start 2019 by trying out some of these winning jackpot slots, how about giving the good old Mega Moolah a go, or perhaps test the waters with a NetEnt jackpot slot game if you have yet to do so. This year can be however you want it to be, and as always you need to be in it to win it.
