Microgaming is one of the best-known slots’ creators around but they’re equally as well known for their network of progressive games. Over the years, the company has created dozens of instant millionaires via their progressive pokies like Mega Moolah and Major Millions.
Just recently, one lucky player caught the lightning on Spin Casino, one of the top brands accepting New Zealand players, banking more than €1.6 million (NZD 2.8+ million). The jackpot was claimed on the Major Millions slot and the player in question was wagering €3 in spin when he triggered the jackpot.
According to the available information, the lucky winner comes from the UK but has decided to remain anonymous. They’ll receive the full amount of the jackpot (€1,650,382) in one lump sum paid straight from Microgaming coffers. They are also new to Spin Casino as they’ve opened the account with the operator less than a month prior to striking gold.
Major Millions Still a Hugely Popular Pokie
Microgaming’s Major Millions is what you could call a true classic. Initially, this was a three-reel game that later saw a five-reel version as well. However, both slots have a classic vibe to them and can’t really compare to modern games in terms of either graphics or mechanics. Still, players from New Zealand and from all over the world are attracted to it.
The number one reasons is probably the progressive jackpot, which is usually is high six-figure territory but often ventures in seven figures as well. To have a shot at the jackpot on the five-reel version, a player has to stake the maximum (€3) and play all 15 lines. To actually win, they need to line up five Major Millions symbols on the 15th payline.
Big Year for Microgaming Jackpots
2020 has been a good year for those who enjoy progressive pokies. To date, Mega Moolah alone has paid around €50 million in seven and eight figure jackpots, with many more smaller wins in excess of €10,000. The total for jackpots paid in 2020 by the provider is well over €120 million and there are still a few months to go.
Recently, the company has been on the mission to further bolster its offering of progressive slots, adding a few more titles to the Mega Moolah series with games like Mega Moolah Absolootly Mad and Atlantean Treasure: Mega Moolah.
While all pokies have the power to tickle the imagination, progressive jackpot games are in a completely different category. Offering a chance to produce truly life-changing wins on a single spin of the reels, games like Mega Moolah and Major Millions will never go out of style.
