Despite the fact that it is October and the Halloween spirit is in full throttle, there are not as many tricks going on as there are treats, especially in the online casino world anyway. NetEnt only just recently had a Guinness World Record smashed by a very lucky £3.5 million win on their Mega Fortune
progressive jackpot slot game, and now Microgaming have a very exciting announcement to go with what appears to be a very lucky October!
Fish Party from Microgaming is a progressive jackpot slot game released back in 2016, but with any jackpot slot they never seem to go out of date or style because they are just too good! Fish Party is still very much as popular as it was in 2016 as it is 2 years later in 2018. Microgaming have just released the news that Fish Party has paid out the largest ever cash pool in its whole time of being on casinos. Three very lucky players who must have been playing in the right place at the right time ended up sharing out a massive £317,849.78 cash prize on Wednesday the 17th of October 2018.
The winners had been playing Fish Party in a 3-seater Sit & Go tournament quite late into the night and spun on this game with £20 and ended up cashing out with a bigger wallet that they could have ever wished for a few minutes after midnight on Wednesday. This win has marked the network’s biggest ever win since their launch back in 2016.
Since this was part of a tournament, the substantial prize pool however will end up being shared across three casino players who were taking part in the 3-seater Sit & Go tournament which had a £20 buy in. One of the players will receive a whopping £158,924.89, another will receive a very decent £95,354.93, and the last player will receive £63,569.96. I don’t know about you but I think we would be very comfortable with any of these prizes.
The managing director of poker at Microgaming, Alex Scott said a few words about this milestone: “ What an exciting three-handed battle this was, congratulations to the winners! Our unique Fish Party progressive jackpot SNG has now awarded over £1.2 million in jackpot prizes, a milestone we are very proud of. At this rate it won’t be long until we hit two million! I can’t wait to see who the next winners are”.
Fish Party is not a slot game that we hear so often with getting whopper wins, so this is some really exciting news, and perhaps more players will start having a go on the various different progressive jackpots
available in UK casinos. To date Fish Party has been hit 22 times and paid out over £1.2 million in prizes! This latest win will mark the third time in which the jackpot has been won in the last three months, and the ninth jackpot of 2018!
